Arlington Police use YouTube to Solicit Citizen Assistance

As I often do, I happened to find myself wandering around the Arlington County web site and stumbled onto this YouTube video of some asshat robbing a BB&T bank at Rosslyn. Way to go, Arlington Police, for using the obvious technologies for this important purpose. Many departments lag behind because nobody wants to bother learning something new and the old-timers don’t know what to think about “The You Tube.” I am glad to see that our local police are taking advantage of this popular and easy-to-access medium.

If you know anything about this situation that can be helpful to the investigation, or even possibly who this alleged asshat might be, call the Arlington Crime Solvers at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477).
