    What a fool? Well, he did get away so maybe he wasn't too foolish after all. However, to rob a bank in downtown Frankfort (not a big place) which is the headquarters to some 12 state, federal, and local law enforcement agencies...that either takes a really brave soul or a really stupid one. I have no idea how he got away with so many cops crawling around (I was in downtown Frankfort when this happened, you couldn't look a block in any direction without seeing some kind of armed officer).
