I wear my sunglasses at night…

hartSunglasses.jpgSpeaking of bank robberies, the Feds have decided that they’re sick and tired of criminals wearing shades and hats when they go on bank-robbing adventures. While some banks ask their customers to remove hats and shades when they walk in, the FBI would like this to be a Washington state law. Cameras are generally placed so high that a well-worn baseball cap can obscure a useful face shot, and sunglasses are also helpful in the whole obfuscation thing.

Special Agent Larry Carr notes: “The vast majority of bank disguises, that is their key disguise. That’s their disguise.” So the Feds are going to work with the state legislature to get this law passed. I’m all for this law, mainly because, if passed, it means robbers will have to get more creative in their disguises. And anything that gets us closer to more bank robbers dressed like clowns is Aces Up in my book.
