    There was another robbery similar to this in Knoxville earlier this year. Off to find the link. http://www.knoxnews.com/news/watchfu...orker_55086584

    It was in Oak Ridge, just to the west of Knoxville.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    TN Banks May Want To Activate Their Time Locks

    Time Locks:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_lock:

    "...Time locks were originally created to prevent criminals

    from Kidnapping and torturing the person(s) who knows

    the combination, and then using the extracted information

    to later burgle the safe or vault, or to stop entry by staff at

    Unauthorized Times..." [Emphasis by Richrd]


    In My Opinion:

    It is better to Surrender the money to the Robbers,

    than have the hostages Slaughtered when entry is denied.
