    Banks should have doors that lock automatically when the button is pressed.After all I go to that bank and there are 2 sets of doors to go thru..Just lock the bums in the glass hallway and watch them squirm like the criminals they are until the police arrive,It is a very simple procedure to get the crooks when there is only one way out.
