2. I say real
if it was fake, they wouldn't have the old guy standing there for a while eating popcorn before he decides to tackle the guy.

3. It Is Real
I believe it is from this recent bank robbery in West Allis, WI. The older guy feared for his wife (the scared women who later kicks at the robber) and decided to jump the robber.

"West Allis A 54-year-old man fearing for his wife's safety jumped a 21-year-old man who was trying to rob the Guardian Credit Union shortly before noon Tuesday, police said."

5. Thanks for the link.
The reaction from the tellers seemed incredibly fake and far too casual. If I saw it in a movie I would groan over how unrealistic it was. But apparently I'd be wrong.

But I'm sure she appreciates the compliment.
