MrApexIt: Dude hit the floor pretty hard…
Tramm: God damn.. he shit tossed that guy. Reminds me of that guy who tried to rob an old man who turned out to be an ex-boxer.
ShaIIowAndPedantic: Completely blocked from the video due to adblockers. Yet they have no problem trying to show me an ad instead that’s longer than the fucking video.
Well, fuck you too website, why do you think I use this shit.

muhash14: Is this the Inuyashiki live action?
GramAM: That guy’s a heckin badass.
Laneglee: Speaking as a former bank teller that was held at gun point, this is terrifying. I’m glad it worked out, but he could have been really hurt. At the same time I’m glad someone did something because fuck that fucker.
Jayanth_N: Wow! Mask off to him!
I mean hats off to him!
sasblaster: That’s what you get for robbing a bank in sweats.
CaptConstantine: All I see is commercials
giantgoose: As a bank employee, this guy’s a moron. We are always taught to just get them tf out of the branch as soon as possible, that little bit of money isn’t worth risking anyone’s personal safety.
Jayanth_N: Oh, so many saying ‘As a Bank Teller/Bank employee, been trained never to interfere in a Bank robbery and it’s not worth it…..”
What a reassuring message for potential robbers….
wildkarrde: Don’t fuck with that old man strength.
lipplog: Is 63 considered old these days?
ThePantyArcher: How would one go about finding the song playing in the video? Pretty dope
barrsm0: Golf gloves?
ayriuss: Stupid thing to do, but what a legend lol. I hope to be like him when I’m old and no longer give a fuck.
Pushkin9: Watching any video on cnn is such an unpleasant and looong experience
powershirt: 63 year old man was probably sued
Retrograde_Lectin: Dear Mr Reporter,
When they are on video I’m gonna suggest you don’t need to refer to the robber as a suspect.
haroldjc: That’s Mike from Breaking Bad.
avidpretender: Lol I read this as “tickles” not “tackles”
Cinemaphreak: As someone who just went to the bank yesterday, please save you dumbass “heroics” for the time I’m not in the branch so if your actions causes bullets to start flying I don’t catch one. Worse, said dumbass is in open carry state and decidesto play Dirty Harry. Cops train every year and still shoot the wrong person because of the chaos.
99% of the time the perp just leaves with the *banks* money.
thekid1420: This leads to a couple questions. Why does he care that much about insured money? Why didn’t the robber use his gun or at least pistol whip him?
giantgoose: I’ve never personally been robbed but when a branch in my district was, a coworker said it was a few thousand. I’m not sure who actually pays it, but someone does and given our very strict cash limits, you’d be lucky to get more than that in a robbery.
Press_F5_Comrade: I can’t really see this a justice since banks rob us all the time, and now we aren’t allowed to sue.
CaDoran: Let’s applaud people valuing property over life. Welcome to late capitalism
WhackIsBack: Video of masked dude running in the bank with gun in hand waving it around, and CNN says stuff like
“*Suspected* armed robber”
“*Allegedly* waving a gun”
Enginerdad: As the robber ran away, the old man could be heard yelling after him “Go cry to the führer, you filthy Kraut!”
the3dtom: Why is age a factor? There are 70 year olds that are in better shape than some 20 year olds.
SteveKep: I’d like to slap the shit outta that pussy that ran out with his girlfriend. Better yet, maybe someone knows who he is and we can get him some viral internet infamy.
