FBI seeks "Baseball Babe" bandit in bank robberies

There's only one Baseball "Babe Bandit"

Women. Sheesh.

When robbing the banks, the suspect shows a demand note and threatens the bank's employees. When finished, she is seen leaving the banks on a bike.

She's escaping on a bike? Does it have streamers and little basket too?

How about Fat chick bank robber? Baseball babe, hardly.
 
2012-07-18 04:31:22 AM  
Finally, a bandit that knows how to do it properly. No machine guns, armor or gangs of thugs to complicate things. Just a pair of shades, hat, jacket and latex gloves. The bicycle getaway is a nice Eco-touch. Bet she speeds off to some alley and ditches the costume, bike, etc. and walks out looking like any gal just heading off to her job. :P

I wonder how many are rooting for her. :)

Where else is she supposed to keep all the money. And the bell helps with the getaway.

Where is she hiding it though? Maybe she's got incredibly thick thighs or has cement feet because she doesn't look all that big from the picture.

I'm 2 inches shorter and slightly more than half her weight, so I'm confused.

bingo! this is a clever one. the bike is an excellent all-purpose get-away, very smart indeed. with so many cameras in operation it's wise to have anonymous transportation into and out of the scene of the crime.

Somehow, I doubt they actually managed to weigh her accurately, and are just pulling random numbers out of their asses based on descriptions from witnesses, who likely gave a collective height range of between 4 feet and 6 feet, and weight between 50 pounds and 300 pounds... Eyewitnesses are not often very accurate in their estimates of people's age/height/weight...

You guys do realize that the weight they are giving is a guessdemation? It's not like they asked her to step on a scale before they'd give her the money.

I assumed the FBI is hoping she is vain and self conscious about her weight.

Agent 1: Hey George, why did you tell the papers that bank robber weighed 150? Nobody told us what they thought she weighed.
Agent 2: I thought we could try telling her that she looks fat. Maybe she gets pissed off and does something stupid.
Agent 1: I guess it could work.
Agent 3: There is a woman in the lobby. She is yelling something about only weighing 120 lbs, jeans making her ass look fat, retaining water, and riding a bike to lose weight.
Agent 2: Oh Yeah! Looks like somebody is getting a promotion!

That's pretty much it: I learned in places like Providence that a bike is a better getaway vehicle in a city than a car. And disposable, too. The gloves are a nice touch -- much less chance of leaving incriminating evidence. Not talking is smart, too. Keeping it simple is an old mob rule, and those guys are the real pros. The more you complicate a crime, the more chance you have of screwing it up or getting caught. The most successful criminals are the ones who do only what's necessary to get the job done and protect themselves. I've never heard of a smart bank robber, and I don't think this girl's smart for doing it, either, but she seems smarter than most of them.

Interceptor1: Why don't banks get better cameras?


Like what? Ones that can see through sunglasses and hats? Those don't exist yet. Or do you mean the quarter-million-dollar jobs used for television, that also weigh fifty pounds?

It might occur to you -- or might not, now that I think of it -- that the actual professionals who design bank security systems have already considered all the available options, and made their decisions based on reasoned consideration of what's achievable against what will actually deliver improved results. An expensive TV camera also can't see through sunglasses or hats, and probably doesn't deliver much other useful information above what a common security does that would justify the horrible cost.

But by all means, sit back in your basement and comment on how stupid experts are. It's a great old Fark tradition.

Lionel Mandrake: FBI seeks "Baseball Babe" bandit in bank robberies

There's only one Baseball "Babe Bandit"

First, weight estimates for perpetrators is based on apparent build, not on a scale near the door. So you can rule out cement feet -- she hasn't actually been weighed.

150# is a little over for her build, but not by much -- only about ten pounds over, for someone with an athletic build. And cyclists have a lot of their weight in their thighs, yes. Someone who relies on a bike to escape a serious felony probably has more than a passing familiarity with them.

Now, about you: If you're "slightly more than half her weight" at five feet tall, then you're about 80 lbs. Which, for 5', suggests that you're seriously underweight, even for someone with a 'small frame' -- maybe even dangerously underweight. There are exotics out there with freakishly small frames -- one of my friends is like that. But it's unlikely you're one of them. What does your doctor think about your weight? I'm being totally serious here, not snarky. Being seriously underweight poses real health risks that you should know about, and perhaps do something about. And though it's straying to say this, I also feel the need to tell you that if you're holding your weight down to appeal to boys, well, boys like that don't deserve you. Anyone worth being with will respect you for who you are, not who they may want you to be. Kate Upton is considered 'fat' by some people because she's not anorexic. In truth, she's much healthier than most of her colleagues. And Marilyn Monroe wore a 14.

Or, it could be estimates by actual experts based on the actual photographs of her from the actual cameras. But your theory is good, too, I guess.

This alternative pic...

...should help clear things up. Though at a glance I would still say not quite 150 unless she's got some more "generous" butt and thigh proportions.

No problem, it's the internet.

You're kind of touchy on the subject of cameras. I just got a cheap video camera to install on the roll cage of my car from GoPro. Does sound and fairly decent resolution with a frame rate that at least gives the impression of being smooth. Weighs a few ounces, shock resistant and the case helps to protect it from water. It provides much better images than the pictures you see in security cameras.

So I can take better videos with a $300 camera in a harsh environment than a security camera that cost a bit more and sits in a protected climate controlled environment. I lack the budget to afford better than I have but compared to the stills from the bank depicted in the article, I'm not doing too bad.

Camera technology has made tremendous progress over the last ten years. It just doesn't seem to have made it to security cameras yet.

No, I'm touchy about people who shoot their mouths off without thinking. Which is an awful lot of people.

Maybe you're right. Maybe an entire global industry is dumber than you are. But it seems unlikely.
