Los Angeles police had their hands full earlier today trying to catch bank robbers who led them on a high speed chase through L.A., all while throwing money out of the window.

 

"This isn't something we see every day," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokesman Capt. Mike Parker said, according to NBC Philadelphia. "This definitely had some unique aspects to it."

 

 

What may have seemed like a good idea to the suspected banks robbers only slowed them down as onlookers waved to them, signaling for them to throw more money. At times they had to weave through dozens of people in the streets.

 

"If they thought that by throwing money out the window, that that would distract us or have people get in the way and block us -- they're going to run out of money," Parker said "We're not going to run out of sheriff's deputies. We're not going to run of helicopters. We're going to stick with them."

 

"I can't imagine they did this for the good of the community," Parker later added.

 

The chase started after four or five suspects robbed a Bank of America in Santa Clarita, California. The chase lasted 80 minutes before ending in South L.A.

 

Two suspects were taken into custody at the scene. Two others are being searched for in Sylmar, where one person has been detained but authorities were not sure if he is a suspect.

 

 

Within minutes a crowd of onlookers had gathered and swarmed the area.

 

 

Witnesses were grateful the robbers had thrown the cash in their neighborhood.

 

"I'm just so glad this person came to throw this money in the 'hood, basically. You usually see robbers and they take their stuff and they leave. But this guy came over and tried to help us out. You know, it's a big depression nowadays," said a female witness, who identified herself as a 23-year-old resident of the area. "He's doing something I never though a robber would ever do."

 

"Kind of like a Robin Hood situation, rob from the rich, give to the poor. Everybody's out to kind of get some of the money," another resident told NBC4

SMH@ this...And all the comments...WHY Y'all acting like it is cool?... I hope this fool didn't kill someone for this waste of time... Man It is time for my BLACK People to understand... There is no EASY way out... Yes White People got the upper hand and it is though to be Hired in their world... BUT DRUGS Money don't last, Robbery Don't last, Sports Money Don't Last (there is so much a body can take), Bottom line Easy Money don't last...
God gave us many gift ... We have Book smart people, street smart people, Athletics Musics is ours... The only thing slowing us down now is US not the white guy, not the Bank, not the IRS it is US!... We can have the UPPER HAND if we worked together towards that goal... Get Your Hustle On, Work TOGETHER and STICK together... The last part is the HARDEST THING to do in our community but when you see all the most powerfull community that is what they did to have the upper hand... Take the Jews people hate on them but s*** They went through hell from the ancient time in Egypt (Moise and the Pharaoh (spelling)), Germany (Hitler), and even now but where they at they have their say in everything and that's around the world ...
That's the only thing we need to do STICK TOGETHER... If a brother make it help him get Higher and higher cauz believe or not this guy is a Leader, let him be he will lead the way for US...The Big picture ONCE again is to get the upper hand... Don't slow down a brother trying to make it cauz you feel that's too much for him or you should get some from him or you want to be him... Man It gotta be some kind of curse...
Anyway This guy is a fool... And HOPEFULLY IT IS NOT GONNA BE A TREND...

Killa Cali"..you know what it is!! Yeah say what you will..about the City but even (2pac) said"..We might fight amongst each other, but I promise you this..we'll burn this b**** down..get us pissed! (To live & die in L.A) Now that may be a negative way of looking at it..to some people, but how many people can say the same thing about their home town..and will get just as active on the streets, if it called for it..riots and all, police or no police..but for a much greater cause then just money..besides Washington, D.C Million Man March ?
