If You're Going To Rob A Bank, At Least Be Polite About It

The "Big Bully," they're calling him.
The headline on the release: "Big Bully Pushes, Shoves And Threatens During Bank Robbery." If we're to assume that the feds listed these offenses in order of their importance or egregiousness (and why shouldn't we?), it's clear that shoving is a greater offense than actually robbing a bank.
Said the FBI:
At approximately 4:30 p.m., "Big Bully" entered the bank and began aggressively pushing and shoving customers out of his way as he moved toward the teller counter. He pulled out a black semi-automatic pistol, and pointed it directly at tellers as he demanded they put cash into a blue bag he threw down on the counter.
"Big Bully" then grabbed the bag and the cash and fled the bank on foot.

The robber was described as "a black male, 27-35 years old, 5-11 to 6-0 tall, 220-240 pounds, heavy build, and was wearing a dark colored baseball cap turned backward, and a dark brown tee shirt with yellow lettering."
He hit an Amegy bank on the east side this morning and, as the first photo shows, he used the old sideways pistol-holding method.
