Grand Theft Auto: FOMC City - Bank Robbers Throw Cash Out Of Volvo In South Los Angeles

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Once upon a time we thought that literally throwing cash out of rapidly moving objects was a privilege strictly reserved for Fed chairmen. Not any more. Moments ago, a car chase in South Los Angeles went horribly right, when two bank thieves who managed to find a Bank of America branch which actually had cash in it, and robbed it, proceeded to throw cash out of the moving car as it was being chased by a cohort of cops. Since the getaway car happened to be a Volvo, they naturally failed to get away, but not before they became local Robin Hood-type heroes to the massive gathering of gawkers all of whom would appear gainfully employed if only they were not just standing there, doing nothing, and hoping to steal the already stolen money in a major LA intersection at 11:30 am local time on a Wednesday. At least we now have the first two joint candidates to take over the BOE's soon to be vacant governorship.

Watch below.

The aftermath of the chase is still going and can be seen here.

Finally, an artist's impression of what would have happened if it was a certain Ben Bernanke driving the Volvo.

Police are asking the public to turn the the stolen loot found in the streets over to them.

Any bills with serial numbers that can be identified by BOA will be returned to them.

When a bank is robbed by someone other than management, I believe the average take is around $1500. Given BoA's propensity for leverage, I'd say this single robbery has had an impact on BoA capital of somewhere between 0.4 and 0.7 Corzines.

I say they were spreading wealth and facilitating trickle down effect from the last round of quantitative easing. Money was picked up and spent shortly thereafter thereby contributing to consumer spending and GDP growth therefore helping economy recover. Cops chasing them for hours burned X amount of gas thereby contributing to government spending and further boosting GDP numbers. Plus, cops were busy in the process, thus employment in the government sector was positively affected. Of course Krugman will disagree and say what they did was not nearly enough and they should've picked a bigger car and throw money faster while not getting caught much longer, well they probably don't have a PhD. Amateurs.

It's a historical anomaly related to the funding and building of the port of los angeles. LA actually has a long thin strip that runs along what was the railroad track and red car from Union Station to the ports. It's actually really interesting period often overlooked in american history, the fight between the Central Pacific and Southern Pacific for control of the freight rights and location of the then new port of Los Angeles.

Subcontractors for the Fed? Or maybe this was a test run for the real thing, being from helicopters, just like Ben promised.

Jesus I think they need to call in more squad cars - the line of 20 chasing the Volvo just isn't enough.  Idiots.

it took $80bn a year and 120,000 troops to find little old Asama Bin Hiding in Afghanistan ...no wonder it took the idiots 8 years, he was hiding next door in Pakistan 

just remember Miami CSI is pure fiction, the State couldn't figure anything out without a public tip-off

Thank God this didn't happen in New York - the NYPD would've shot about 137 (and counting) bystanders by now.

I'm just sad the robbers got caught, but at least they did the right thing with the money as the cops closed in.

The dude seemed to be a pretty decent wheelman. Didn't see him hit anything.

Wonder how many parked cars the "heroes-in-blue" wiped out?

If it were a Volt, they would've gone 5 miles and had to recharge.
