she refused because she was pregnant and did not know if he had a gun, she said. She called 911

Anxious pregnant bank teller caused this incident she just anxious whether he had a gun or not, if that's the case any customer that walk into bank can be suspected to carry a gun, Coggler can be easily shot by police officer if he made wrong move, after she called 911.

What's with these money handlers? Another guy was killed by police because the cashier thought he had been handed a fake bill.

He explained why he handed her the note. He also handed her a CA-ID and a Bank of America account card with his name on them. Who robs a bank by producing two pieces of ID? Bank teller never bothered to read the names on the IDs and check them against the account name.

Lucky the teller was black. A white teller would be being accused of racial profiling and being racist right now. Maybe it is not about the color but the situation?

Time to find a better bank that remembers their customers. There is no excuse for this.

I'm sorry, but that was a really dumb move by the teller. Could've gotten him killed.

The “Black Panther” director, who is Black,

Teller was Black. Cop was Black. Black Panther is Black.

seems a personal “medical assistant” who likes to get paid in cash needs to get a visit from the tax man.

You got that right! If she was white, she also would have lost her job immediately.

The bank employee is a Black woman, the report says

Minus one mark for incorrect use of capitalisation.

It’s Atlanta, race is always an issue. Hope the teller doesn’t lose her job on this, but she and the managers get retrained. And we have to give the cops some credit for not making the situation worse..
