Well it isn't mentioned yet as this is breaking news but looks like the first Coronavirus casino robbery has occurred

Bandits wore surgical masks which have become prevalent and a common sight due to the Coronavirus

Took place last night. $270,000 cash stolen

God that's brilliant. You have to admit it. Under normal circumstances we live in an age where wearing a mask in public (even a Halloween mask on Halloween) is either illegal or looked upon with extreme suspicion. (Think of creepy clown scares or "V for Vendetta" protesters or defeated facial recognition tech.)

Now, suddenly, an opportunity presents itself to wear a mask into a public location where lots of cash is kept and nobody will even look twice at you. It seems obvious in retrospect.

I'm wondering if a surgical mask is enough to prevent a facial recognition algorithm from doing a match. A lot of the match-points they use are based around the eyes.
My goal of being well informed conflicts with my goal of remaining sane.

The new style now seems to be gait recognition which doesn't need a face at all...

For those not familiar with the layout of this particular casino...

Outside the building is a massive parking lot and no matter the direction it's a looong walk to the exit gates

So either they walked/ran that looong distance hauling their loot or they hopped into a getaway car waiting for them in the parking lot. Which would be really stupid. They have cameras and licence plate ID system at all the entrance and exits to the property.

And if they removed their masks while running with the loot to "saunter" nonchalantly off property I am certain the camera would catch that as well.

I'm pretty stumped at this point

Bank robberies are one of the easiest crimes to get away with initially without anyone even trying to stop you. But they also have the highest arrest rate.

Makes you wonder if the Feds have more tricks up their sleeve than they let on.

Most bank robbery arrests are made by local and state law enforcement.

Was watching a video about the markets crashing, he is calling it the "RONA" virus. I hate things like this, corporate censorship I suppose. It's like when the person on the plane threw a SPRITE at a fellow passenger because of the seat defender, and the news articles started lying saying it was water. As if people will never buy Sprite or Corona again.

I live about 12 miles from RW Aqueduct. From what I read....The robbery was at the race track not the casino.

Money ( daily cash ) was being transferred from one floor to a vault on another floor when the robbery happened. Obviously an inside job. Someone who knew when the transfer would take place.
