20 years for D.C. man in bank robbery

A man who pleaded guilty to robbing a Hagerstown bank has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Thirty-eight-year-old Keith Wilson of Washington, D.C. was sentenced in Washington County Circuit Court on Wednesday.

He pleaded guilty in August to the March 8 armed robbery of the M&T Bank branch on Dual Highway.

Wilson and another masked gunman went into the bank, herded 10 employees and customers into the back and ordered employees to open the vault.

White man robs bank gets 18 months in prison...black man robs bank gets 20 years. White ppl and those of you in denial, dont you see why we feel as we do. The post printed a sad story about the white man's life spiraling out of control from teaching school to drugs which caused him to commit the bank robbery. But the black man's story was; he robbed a bank and was sentenced to 20 years. No background on him what so ever. This is why we feel as we do. There is no justice for black people in the country. NONE!!!! Yeh yeh yeh...you may say dont do the crime. We are talking after the facts smarty!

He should've changed his name to Keith Wilsonstein and then maybe he would've only got 20 months instead of years. It sad because the teacher got off because he actually used the "B-B gun" at the drugstore and not at the bank. Racism is still out here and if you don't know just asked Mr. Wilson and all the other African-Americans that will get no justice.

Crime in DC... wake up and look really hard in that mirror. Stop falling into the liberal mindset trap. Facts are one thing. Making up lies is what your doing. What white man got 18 mo for federal bank robbery? Do you know that federal crimes sentences are based on sentencing guidelines based on type, use of force, gun, previous convictions? Each case in unique. There is no RACE bias in bank robbery cases:FACT! Stop spreading YOUR hate and RACISM.
