This is another case of a non-criminal being turned into a criminal with the preemptive mindset that is infesting people.
There was no crime, there was no victim, there are no damages...
There are laws in place for everything already people...the bank could have simply asked the man to leave and once he did not they could claim
trespassing...that is a real crime and has a victim upon which the justice department can make things right. Other than that, he didn't really rob the
bank and any investigation will prove those were not his intentions.
You cannot charge people with crimes you think they are going to commit or crimes they might commit or crimes that you thought they were committing
but in reality weren't....this is NOT how law enforcement an the justice department work...
The only crime I see that was committed was trespassing if the man didn't leave when asked, and possibly disorderly conduct since he was interrupting
a business. on private property. If he was doing this on the corner of the street he wouldn't be breaking any laws...
Again, you cannot criminalize people for your own paranoia and fears. You cannot criminalize people for stuff that hasn't happened yet regardless of
statistics (probability/possibility) and we all know that capability does not equal culpability. Once people start thinking they have a crystal ball
that sees what the intentions of people are in the future and that is enough to incarcerate someone...we are ALL in a world of hurt.
If the guy even has a decent lawyer he will possibly get trespassing and disorderly but the notion he attempted to rob the bank will and should fall
flat on its ass.
