Onlookers were waving to the suspected bank robbers, apparently signaling for them to throw more money.

Ya gotta love people.

I thought it was a genius idea. Of course, this was *after* the pants-shiattingly stupid idea of robbing a bank in 2012 like you're Jesse James and then running from the cops in a slow, heavy SUV through city traffic while helicopters track your every move.
 
2012-09-13 10:58:14 AM
On Monday, a driver led police on a pursuit for hours. He managed to flee the vehicle and evade arrest.

Wow. So they actually do get away once in a while. I always thought the attempt to flee was futile because of the police and news helicopters and the number of cops who lie to join in the chase.

Why, exactly, do robbers throw the money the robbed out the window during a chase? Do they really think that the pursuing officers won't see them doing so? I've even seen them doing the same thing with illicit drugs.
 
2012-09-13 11:12:39 AM
A couple times it looked like they threw the money in a way to get prople to rush out infront of the cop cars and it almost worked a couple times.

Guess they are hoping that the crowd would swarm in and block the cop cars. If that was the tactic, they should've slowed down quite a bit and then throw the money out the back window. Of course it wouldn't disperse as well as if the car was moving at a high speed.

/willing to bet that most of the money will not be recovered.

I'm guessing because they know 3 things:
1. They are going to get busted.
2. Their sentence will partially depend on how much they are caught with - so disposing of it might lighten their punishment.
3. The people in the streets could use the money anyway, so why not go all Robin Hood?

I thought the funniest part of the whole thing is the mob that swarmed the SUV to grab whatever money was still in there!

Perhaps the thief realized that the money was counterfeit -- and suddenly decided to embark upon a greater caper: to track-down the counterfeit ring, and take-over the operation..!

Because it provides an incredible distraction and divides the attention of the pursuing police?

Same reason people scatter when fleeing a location.

Had their luck broken different, they might have gotten away - they damn near did - if they had timed it right, they could have bailed and melted into a crowd of a couple hundred sympathizers.
I watched it all come down live - and i must say that it was some of the best police work I have seen L.A. LEOs do in a long time. Defusing and controlling that situation without anybody getting hurt or arrested (other than the perps) was exceedingly well done.

Actually, one kid who ran out into the street after the money got clipped by a cruiser, but he wasn't really hurt.

I was thinking a diversionary tactic - you get far enough ahead of the po-po, throw out a ton of money, and watch as people crowd the streets to get it. Voila! Moving roadblock!

Jayne!
The Man they call Jayne!
He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor,
He stood up to the man and he gave him what for.
Our love for him now, aint hard to explain,
The hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne!

Our Jayne saw the Mudders' backs breakin'
He saw the Mudders lament
And he saw that magistrate takin'
Every dollar and leavin' five cents
So he said, "You can't do that to my people"

"You can't crush them under your heel"
Jayne strapped on his hat
And in five seconds flat
Stole everything Boss Higgins had to steal

He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor
Stood up to the Man and he gave him what for
Our love for him now ain't hard to explain
The Hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne

Now here is what separates heroes
From common folk like you and I
The man they call Jayne
He turned 'round his plane
And let that money hit sky
He dropped it onto our houses
He dropped it into our yards
And the man they call Jayne
He turned round his plane
And headed out for the stars

He robbed from the rich and he gave to the poor
Stood up to the Man and he gave him what for
Our love for him now ain't hard to explain
The Hero of Canton, the man they call Jayne!

But that's what they always do in the movies and cartoons!

It creates diverting sub-plots in which the money lands in the lap of somebody poor who gets into a lot of comic trouble when they blow their new found riches and then have to deal with the criminals, the police, and various kinds of complications.

What's the point of stealing all that money if it just gets captured and returned to its rightful or wrongful owners? Nobody loves a bank, not even tellers. Everybody wants to see the money fly, fly and be free!

Information isn't the only thing that wants to be free. Money was made to circulate, not rot away from disuse.

From that link: "...the typical television viewer must have been struck by the inordinate number of people who seemed to be at home in the middle of the day and with enough idle time to go out and chase the free money being dispensed by the neighborhood bank robbers."

I assume they all work, just at night, and they all woke up to go to work just before the vehicle traveled through.

For the same reason some drug runners throw their product out of the window while they are fleeing police. They probably think they are disposing of the evidence..in full view of a police dash-cam.

Since the mid-70s it's been a common practice among the smugglers trying to run Oregon Inlet, NC, to throw bales of pot overboard if they are spotted by the Coast Guard (not all that common) or they hit a shoal (pretty often). These bales are caught by the current running through Crab Slough and deposited all over the Outer Banks, where they are known as "square groupers" by the lucky finders. Curiously, they are seldom turned over to the authorities.
