Whenever someone thinks of bank robberies, one cannot help but conjure the image of The Joker from the movie – The Dark Knight – shooting his co-robbers and escaping in a school bus.

On the topic of robberies, how about a robbery as outrageous as the 45th President of The United States Of America? Italian police on Monday arrested two brothers suspected of robbing dozens of cash machines while wearing masks of Donald trump.

You see, kind robbers do exist such as this man who when talked about god by the women he held captive during the robbery, bent on his knees and prayed to him.
