The Hypnotist Bandit is Terrorizing California
Wet Bandits – FBI agents are hunting a “Hypnotist Bandit,” who makes major eye contact during bank robberies.
The suspect reportedly stares at tellers as he hands over his demand note — and then refuses to look away as they hand over the cash.
He’s believed to have hit up four money houses in California in the past week.
Striking twice on June 3, he allegedly stole an undisclosed amount of cash from institutions in in Temple City and South El Monte.
The mesmerizing marauder is also accused of robbing another bank in Pasadena on May 27.
“Who makes major eye contact during bank robberies.” That’s a first. So this guy is being persecuted because he has fantastic people skills? Isn’t that what everyone is complaining about nowadays? All those kids texting and playing Candy Crush instead of some good old fashioned conversation and eye contact. I guess what he makes up for in eye contact he lacks in decision making skills. Is robbing a bank smart? Probably not, but this guy isn’t perfect. Do you expect him to have perfect people skills AND make all the right decisions? I think that’s asking too much of a flawed human being. On a serious note, does this guy carry a weapon? I’ve read the article and nowhere does it mention that he has a gun or a knife or anything. He just hands you a note, stares into your soul and takes all your money. That’s power.
