The bank needs to hire their own security guard like Bank of America has. It will give someone a job too!

What all banks need to do is quit worrying about offending people and put up the tall, bullet -proof glass, like we used to have. I never go in that bank anymore. Too many armed robberies.

There are too many banks in Royal Oak. Hopefully alot of them will close and move to Birmingham, where they all belong. There's no doubt our city of Detroit neighbors are working their magic at these various banks, like TCF.
