This is every ATM customer’s worst nightmare

Harrowing bank surveillance footage shows the moment a teen murder suspect approached an unwitting ATM customer from behind — seconds before the bloodied victim collapsed in a parking lot.

The footage shows Marcine Bernard Hill, 17, calmly approaching an ATM in North Miami Beach in November. Clad in a black Ecko jacket emblazoned with the words “Kill Batman,” Hill saunters up behind victim Dillon Bud Calvin Steve, who turns around to notice Hill at the last moment.

Steve, 26, quickly glances at his mother’s van in the parking lot before dropping the cash and lunging at Hill. He’s then seen grasping his chest while staggering toward the van before collapsing. He later died at a hospital.

The Miami Herald reports that the footage was released by the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office as a grand jury indicted Hill earlier this month on charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery.

Hill, who remains in custody, is not eligible for the death penalty since he was a minor at the time of the fatal shooting, but could face up to life in prison if convicted. Initial charges of first-degree murder were filed against him Nov. 21, online records show.

Hill’s attorney declined to comment on the video, according to the Miami Herald.

The other day I saved a lady from getting robbed at the Carroll St M&T ATM.The dude was on a bicycle standing directly behind her as she withdrew money.When he attempted to lunge at her I grabbed the back of his bike & did not allow him to move.She got in her SUV & departed & the guy took off on the bike without further incident.I could not have proved his intentions,but his intention was indeed to rob her.

Concealed carry will put an end to such as this. Sick and tired of hearing about these low life's preying on good, hard working people. They are more of a threat to us than isis is.
