They are selling their retail banking services, but will continue to provide the normal services as they have been up until now. So as it stands now, you don't have to necessarily get your money out and look for another bank to put in. My guess is a megabank will buy them out and will keep the same branches and outlets as is and just change names.

wow, he really must be messed up in the head to actually force the crew to screw off the hinges of the door. Was he continually trying to assault the poor woman during the whole time they were getting off the door? Hope she is not too scarred by this incident. They should fully press charges against this man, if he was that much danger to the public because of mental health conditions, he shouldn't have been walking around without proper supervision. Wonder if he was on other drugs than prescription.

All I can say, the inkeeper had alot of guts to do that and would have had second thoughts of doing that. I have seen and had a fried taunt one of these bosuzoku groups, and they came after him with a veangance smashing the back of his car window chasing him all the way to the police station where they gave up pursuit. He should have just called the police to complain of noise disturbance and keep calling them every time it happens. Not worth putting your life on the line for something out of your league.

the other patrons should have stood together to face this maniac. They should have tried to stop him. If i were the owner, I would have simply taken my butcher knife up to him and told him to stop right now or I will whack your arm off, now which is it?

Goto abused his rank and now time for him to pay. This boy needs a little taste of his own medicine. He should be arrested for assault and abuse.

Dang, he must have had some serious hate to go as far as he did. Sad it ended this way and really wonder how far his mother really pushed him. But I do know how boys do not like to be told what to do by their mothers and have witnessed knives being drawn to threaten. The mother no longer tells him what to do.

For all those girls walking home alone at night, have your phone open ready to hit 110. Or in the least, pretend like your talking to someone on the phone. And take frequent look backs to see if anyone suspicious approaching.

justice is served and the only sympathy that will go out is to the victims who were there just vacationing. Just so sad life is ended in such a pointless act.

Yes, she said she wanted to know what it looks like inside a human body. Clearly removed from society and no remorse of killing her victim. Sounds like a Psychopath to me. Unfortunately, I think she needs to be institutionalized and monitored carefully. My guess it will be difficult to get her back on track, and with a background like this who could ever be her friend, let alone be alone with her. She will further drop into a black hole and away from mainstream society. What can we do with her?

Agree with Frungy. There is just no excuse for this behavior regardless of pay or stress. If your driven that far that you have to hit someone, then your in the wrong industry. This is not bootcamp training soldiers, this is caring for the elder and this man should be prosecuted to the extent of the law.
