I just love the way the police in Spain deal with this guy! If this happened in the U..S. the cops would all be suspended and fired. the bank robber would get a new motorcycle, a $5,000,000 compensation, and an apology from the president. This incident took place in Spain. Apparently the Spanish police agreed to placate a 'bank hostage' situation by allowing the radical to 'escape' uninhibited. He was allowed to walk out of the bank in the company of 2 hostages. The police provided him with a motorcycle and free access to the motorcycle. Then, leaving the hostages behind, he was permitted to ride away down a clear roadway to make his 'escape.' This whole incident, shown on CBS television, complete with news reporting in English, can be seen on this 55-second video clip. The concluding few seconds of this video shows the result of the Spanish planning.
