Yet another Manassas area bank was robbed this past Wednesday. Guess which bank?
Surprise, surprise, surprise, it was another BB&T branch, this time on Centreville Road. BB&T and the other local bank which thinks that posting “no guns” signs are a good idea, Wachovia Bank, have certainly been doing a good job of demonstrating just how foolish the notion is that these signs enhance safety. The actual effect that we see consistently demonstrated here is that these signs invite robbery and put customers and the community at risk.
You can read about recent local Wachovia robberies here, and here. BB&T was hit earlier this month and was covered here. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere near these two banks — they’re clearly a very dangerous place to be.
