    They don't usually run those with just one guy right? What are we missing here?

    Good point Irish......I hadn't even thought of that! Now that you mention it, I've never heard of a solitary driver of an armored car. Hmmmm

    This story just ran on Good Morning America. The parents are saying he is a family man and could not have taken this himself. I think they said he was in the Guard.

    He would have to know that he wouldn't get away with it. I don't understand why someone would risk 20 or more years in prison for any amount of money. I don't see how it would be worth it. It would seem that he would be given a background check before being hired to drive an armored truck full of money.

    Tore apart his whole family, going to jail, leaving his spouse and children without his pay check, insurance, and no dad. Just what they wanted for Christmas!
