"Police say Alan and Alex Stokes, 23, dressed in black outfits with ski masks while carrying around duffel bags of cash and pretending they had just robbed a bank."

They're lucky they weren't shot, eh.  (no matter what country)

Their poor driver hadn't a clue and was held at gunpoint by police.   They put his life in danger, too.  I wouldn't doubt he will sue them.

Timing is everything. What was forbidden in 2019 is mandatory in 2020.

It would be sad to send them to prison for being ahead of their time.
