CHASE banks have been robbing their customers for years, that's the real crime.

Right on, Gelenn: "Bank robbery" can be defined to include what banks do to their customers by way of excessive fees, denial of credit, to the communities in which they set up shop and to the population at large, which sees vital tax monies used to subsidize bankster activity, such as taking over smaller banks.

And I haven't even gotten into the participation of banks in the "Federal Reserve" scam by which they "lend" money to the US at interest, though the Treasury could print money without interest, and the creation of the IRS that collects money on behalf of the "Federal Reserve" in order to pay interest on the money they create out of thin air.

WHO is robbing WHOM????
