Guns in Jamison bank robbery

johnboy 5 April 2011 11

ACT Policing is investigating an armed robbery at the Commonwealth Bank in Jamison this morning (Tuesday, April 5).

About 10.37am police received reports of an armed robbery. A man wearing a grey/black hooded jumper, blue jeans and a bandana covering his face entered the bank with a silver handgun, threatening staff.

The man appears to have left in a silver Subaru Outback station wagon which has since been recovered in a nearby suburb.

No one is believed to have been injured at this stage. No shots were fired and investigations are ongoing.

Anyone who may be able to assist police are asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on Information can be provided anonymously.

Good reasons to go to Jammo:
1. It’s now more exciting than a day trip to knife-wielding Charny
2. The fruit and veg shop, which still accepts cash, is good value
3. One of the cafes makes great coffee
4. Parking is still free
5. Trash and treasure if you’re into that sort of thing
6. The PO staff are nicer than staff in some other, larger POs

“aussieboy” – by making society cashless, you’ve just killed off the only reason many people go to Jamison at all, the Sunday Markets. Cash is what the stall owners work with, not to mention the charity that runs it. Until there’s an EFTPOS facility on everyone’s wrist watch, this idea won’t work. How do you lend someone $50 in a cashless society. Making our finances electronic open up theft to a different group of criminals who aren’t illiterate drug users, don’t use guns, can’t be tracked down and may not even be old enough to be prosecutable. Identity theft and cyber crime has to be eliminated before cashless is viable. I prefer to carry my money where nobody can get to it without going through me first.

This is why cash MUST be abolished as a form of payment in Australia
The small portion of society who insist on using it for everything mean that banks actually need to keep considerable amounts.

People need to realise that electronic payment is so much more safe and convenient than cash.
Small businesses need to realise that the costs of dealing with cash are extensive and do include exposure to theft.

I give this guy two weeks max before he gets caught. All the police have to do is look at who’s been released from AMC in the last four weeks, once they have their suspects a quick alibi check should lead them straight to the culprit.

You assume that a time like “10:37” is more specific than, say, “midday” – but both have precise meanings.

I find it more odd that certain values imply accuracy!

Perhaps the time was read with great accuracy from a clock, the accuracy of which is unable to be verified?

Flag down the nearest White Commodore. Bound to be a suspect.

Was it “About 10:37am” or was it 10:37am. Oddly vague, then oddly specific.
