I found this article today.  What has me confused is the last sentence.  Police say that bank tellers should comply with demands unless their personal safety is in jeopardy.  Wouldn’t you think that someone robbing a bank while you are working their puts your personal safety in jeopardy?  You decide!

SEATTLE —  A Seattle bank teller has lost his job because he ran down a would-be bank robber and held him until police arrived.

Nicholson says he tried to grab the man, then chased him several blocks before knocking him down with help from a passer-by. The man turned out to be unarmed.

The 30-year-old Nicholson was fired Thursday. Key Bank officials declined to comment, but Seattle police and the FBI say they advise tellers against acting against robbers. Instead, police Sgt.
