san-diego-geezer-bandit This man is crazy! I don’t know how this dude has gotten away with this so many times. I guess it’s because he’s old and people just assume that he’s not capable of doing anything this terrible. I hope they catch the bastard.

FBI officials are chalking up another San Diego-area bank job to the gray-haired robbery suspect they’ve nicknamed the "Geezer Bandit."

The bureau says the man, who wears prescription glasses and appears to be in his 70s, pulled off his 10th heist since August Monday at a US Bank branch in Poway. He’s accused us handing a teller a demand note while threatening her with a revolver, then fleeing with an undisclosed sum of cash.

The suspect is believed responsible for holding up banks in La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe, Vista and other San Diego-area locations.

Law enforcement officials are asking for the public’s help to identify him. Authorities also are offering $16,000 in rewards for information that leads to his arrest and conviction.


Crazy Old Man Attacks Cops and Gets Killed

Knives are dangerous...

Haven’t done a crazy old man story for a while. Here you go. You’re welcome.

Via Silicon Valley Mercury News:

San Diego police have shot and killed a man they say came at officers with a kitchen knife.

The 56-year-old man died at a hospital Monday morning, less than an hour after he was shot. His name wasn’t immediately released.

Lt. Kevin Rooney says two officers were called to a home to evaluate the mental health of a man who lived there with his mother.

Rooney says the officers saw the man in the kitchen and ordered him out.

Rooney says the man came into the living room with a knife, refused commands to put it down and told the officers that they would have to kill him.

Rooney says the man advanced on the officers with the knife in his hands and an officer shot him.

I’m not always on the side of the cops, but this dude sounded like he wanted to die.
