I think the proper response, in the absence of any obvious threat, is to gather the rest of the tellers to point and laugh...

'Masks and such"

Aren't we supposed to be wearing masks in public?

Most crime is perpetrated by morons, usually drunk.

You have to send the gun through the pneumatic tube so the threat is real.

Maybe he should have sent an envelope full of Tide with a letter saying send money and I'll send you antidote?

The passenger began to flail his arms and was instructed to put his hands in the arm, according to an incident report

That's how they get you - they give you impossible instructions that you can't follow then BLAM BLAM

Why no go whole hog and send your stick-up note by telepone, telegrah or snail mail, with a return address?

I hope the judge asks this question..."Just what did you think was going to happen when you did that?"

The folks at costco get real pissy if you stick things in the pneumatic tubes at the check out

I know a woman who was a bank teller. A would-be robber said he was going to send a bomb through the tube, so she shut off the suction power and told him to fark off. He drove away and was soon captured by police. Idiots are all around us.

Tequila, maybe.  Probably Natural Light though.

"The passenger began to flail his arms and was instructed to put his hands in the arm" and was subsequently shot for failure to comply with the orders from the officers.

Maybe there is a button on the bank website?

That's why the 25 cent blowjob machines at the car wash is my preference. More privacy.

TBH anybody working in banks and other places that regularly are targets of robbery deserve a load of kudos for doing the job with a smile. They're not cops (not that you would ever get used to guns being waved at you as a cop). These robbers are not smart people for sure, but brains don't matter when they have a gun and are freaked out while trying to rob you.

/Always be super nice to people who have to work with the public, y'all. They have to put up with a lot of bull puckey, some of which is weapons.

Passing a note through the tube works just fine. The desired outcome may be different than expected though.

A similar event occurred in Mechanicsburg, Ohio in the mid nineties. Guy sent a note in through the drive thru stating he had a gun and demanding money. The teller sent the contents of her drawer out to him. IIRC, nothing happened to the idiot teller since she was technically following bank policy by cooperating with someone "robbing" the bank.

Most people assumed it was planned and she got a cut later but not enough evidence to file charges.
