If all he did was walk up to the counter, ask for money and he was given money, is that really robbery? If I walked up to you on the street and said "give me a dollar" and you did, that isn't robbery. I know banks have rules but you would think the guy would need a weapon or make a threat to be just handed money. PS- This is my bank woot woot lol.

Umm Tim, yes it's a robbery. If someone is demanding money that isn't theirs and intimidates the victim, that is robbery. Don't be stupid.
