Crime stat of the day: Bank robberies up 57 percent in NYC this year


"There are a lot more desperate people," a law-enforcement source told the Post. There have been 263 bank heists in the Big Apple this year, compared with 168 in the same period last year, sources said. That's an increase of 56.5 percent. Perhaps it's more tempting -- or convenient? -- to rob a bank these days since there are bank branches on nearly every corner.

In the meantime, Lawyers are losing jobs, Wall St. to blame. I wonder if they could be the culprits.
