Here’s your non-important news story of the day.
Two men walk into a building. They claim to have guns, and demand that the lady behind the counter hand over all her cash.
Now, I worked in banking for 3+ years. We’re well-trained on how to handle robberies, so much so that I was never, not once afraid of being robbed (violent robberies, with teller-line takeovers, are very rare, but that would scare me shitless — most bank robberies are fairly straightforward). Comply with the robbers. Give them everything they want. All the money is insured, so just let it go. Don’t fight with them, don’t talk back. Just give them the money and let them go. No biggie.
You are not supposed to do what this woman did, which is run for help.
Except these two robbers weren’t robbing a bank. They weren’t robbing a gas station or a liquor store.
They were robbing a police station.

It took approximately 2.2 seconds for police officers to calmly walk out in a single file line with their guns drawn. The two idiots were taken down in about, oh, 4 seconds.
Now, robbing a bank (in my opinion) is incredibly stupid. With fingerprinting, dye packs, cameras recording your every move, evidence you may leave behind (like the robbery note)… it makes it pretty easy to get caught. But robbing a police station?
What were they thinking?!
