(PennLive)   Two men, dressed in all black, wearing black masks and gloves, carrying what looked like a pistol, attempted to enter the bank, but were stopped in their tracks. By the old locked doors trick. (Pics)   (pennlive.com) divider line

Even more diabolical than the old banana in the tailpipe trick.

If they were dressed all in black with black masks and gloves they should have headed to the park to have themselves a good, old-fashioned knife fight.

Pull door to enter, if that doesn't work try pushing if they doesn't work use the entrance.

The rest of the gang were inconsolable when they heard the news.

What if the masks and gloves were because it was fold outside?

Is it even attempted robbery if you just tried to open the main doors and they were locked?

So .... how are regular law abiding citizens supposed to get in the bank to their business?? Do the doors know??

That doesn't look like those double sets of doors where someone buzzes you in. So was the bank closed?

Maybe they saw a sign like this and gave up

Who knows? Subby's absolutely stellar find me ruins nothing about what time of day it was, if anyone was inside the bank, or why the doors would have been locked. What we can tell from the two shiatty pictures supplied in TFA is that it was daylight, and there were some cars parked there.

That's almost all of the information in TFA. Hell, I'm surprised that they remembered to tell us the address of the bank.

Most news articles these leave you with more questions. Good journalism is dead.

If the cops catch them, what could they possibly be charged with? They didn't even get in, so they never issued any demands or threats. They didn't break in so there's no crime there, either. They stole nothing. There's really no way to prove they intended to rob the bank, since they were completely unable to even enter the bank. A good attorney would say they were just playing dress-up as Batman in a nearby park, and wanted to stop by the bank to make a deposit before heading home. No crime.

The only crime I could think of would be wearing a mask in public, if that's indeed a crime in that area. If it's cold enough outside, they could just as easily say they were dressed for cold weather if masks are a problem.

It's kind of pointless to look for them, because unless they confess I don't see any way they see any jail time or punishment.

Cameras are getting pretty good at facial recognition stuff, and it probably wouldn't be hard to get them to scan people and if they are wearing a mask, just lock the doors.

Cut them some slack. They were young.  A veteran bank robber would've know that banks lock their doors.
