People need to calm with all the negatives bout these robberies. I kno its not good for our image but these can happen in any city. We ain't perfect, no city is. It's not like we r livn in Milwaukee

Waukesha is better than this. Crime is up in almost every category. Our bar should be much higher than a comparison to Milwaukee.

What's this world coming to. If people need money that bad. Tell them to go and get a job.

I agree with Aaron, Waukesha is better than this. Benjamin seems to suggest that we not talk about it because it's not as bad as Milwaukee. He is right but we don't want to wait until it's too late to do anything about it. Keeping it up front and center and showing our concern will help to raise the bar on our expectations.

What good are cameras when there 10 feet in the air. Lower them to our level ad you could get better pics of faces. I have noticed this in most bank robberies. cant see the face cameras are to high. put them at 5 feet and have a better chance of capturing a better pic
