    These badguys have one thing going for them... surprise. Very easy for these armored truck folk to become complacent.

    At least the driver wouldn't give up and ran into the suspect's car. (Said on the news just now)
    Yeah I saw the driver side front panels messed up and the hood. Do you think those guys are actually trained? I know they've got shotguns, never seen them with an AR though.

    I know, but it seems to be more of a fashion now.

    Driving an armored truck can be very dangerous, a very good friend of my father had some guys throw a homemade explosive device under the truck he was driving, I don't know if it's become more dangerous now but this happened back in the 70's.

    I sware, I'll get a shotgun and provide security for these people. I know at one point I saw a brinks truck being followed by these guys who looked like they were S.W.A.T. and had shotguns. They provided security, but apparently, they don't do that anymore probably budget cuts.
