This Killeen bank was robbed today, police said.

UPDATE 2:04 p.m. Police said the robbery occurred just before 1 p.m. today when a man walked into the bank and handed the teller a note.

Police spokeswoman Carroll Smith did not state specially what the note said, but confirmed that the man made threats.

Black man robs blank blank.....blank.......I doubt this paper has the guts to identify a criminal who is black, especially when other outlets show several oictures of this perp and he appears to be a light skinned black man. is KDH afraid to ID as perp as black out of offending someone? pathetic.


It's about time this news agency as well as others start identifying when white men commit crimes around here. Normally, they simply report that a man (if he is white) blah...blah...unless it is a Hispanic or black man. One would think white men don't commit crimes around here...truly biased and pathetic. Black man kills a white woman and his trial is on TV every day and he is sentenced to death. A white man kills his mom and maid...not covered on the news daily and he gets life in prison. So, your comments are those of the privileged class. Not true and smack of racism.
