Feel Good Video of the Day

A bank robber is no more!

 Hat tip to Kevin "Coach" Collins 

The bank surveillance video linked below has been described as "graphic." And that is exactly what it is--a graphic example of a criminal who meets his maker because he ran into a better, more experienced and clear thinking, good guy with a gun. Thanks and congratulations to bank guard Brian Harrison, whose courage was responsible for the safety of his fellow employees.   Ed.

Bank Security Guard Kills Armed Robber In Dramatic Gunfight (Graphic)

“You are a hero to each and every one of us,” the bank wrote.

Talk about courage under fire.

Video posted Tuesday shows a security guard at Alpine Bank in Rockford, Illinois, fatally shooting a robbery suspect in a gunfight.

Authorities announced Tuesday that the guard, Brian Harrison, acted in defense of himself and others and would not be charged in the Jan 20 incident in which the suspect, Laurence Turner, died at the scene, WIFR reported. Turner, who was hit twice, was linked to three other local armed robberies.  
Dead Would-be Bank Robber

“There is no doubt in my mind the actions of Brian Harrison saved the lives of those that were employees in the Alpine Bank location on that date and saved his own life,” Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato said, per WIFR.

The bank praised Harrison’s bravery, saying he “acted with courage and quickness to protect our family. You are a hero to each and every one of us,” the Rockford Register Star reported.

Watch the surveillance video posted here and you’ll see why.
