98% of blacks vote for the same party whether they are bank robbers or not.

No idea if this is true, but I heard once that certain banks that don't allow their employees to be armed are significantly more likely to be robbed. No idea what BB&T's policy is on this, but would be interesting to find out.

Anyway, the way to rob a bank these days is to just stop paying your mortgage and squat for a year...

I don't see how they possibly could have displayed guns, the sign on the bank's door says no guns. Must be some mistake in the reporting.
