Oh man I just got back home but this story has my attention first...

A bank robbery today at the Illinois Service Federal branch at 87th and King Drive. I saw the report on Channel 2 a few minutes ago. 6th Ward Alderman Freddrenna Lyle was talking tough at a press conference outside this branch letting the crooks know that they're not Queen Latifah and that this is real life. If you don't what what the Alderman is talking about, she's talking about this movie Set It Off with Queen Latifah (before Chicago and Bringing Down the House), Jada Pinkett (before she married Will Smith) and Vivica A. Fox (who was seen in Kill Bill Vol. 1).

Anyway the detail are that there are injuries including to one of the robbers. $100K was stolen from the branch. A security guard was shot and he shot one of the robbers. Also a teller was killed in this exchange. A customer was also injured in this exchange. There were three men who robbed this bank today.

The FBI is going to get involved with $50K reward offered in this case. I will get some stories to be compiled here.

Hopefully I will tell you about what I did the past couple of days or so.
