Police: Texas bank standoff over, hostages safe

A hostage situation at a Texas bank ended Friday afternoon with all hostages safe and suspects in custody, said Lt. Onesimo Lopez of the Pearland Police Department.

Lopez said that two armed men had taken an undisclosed number of employees and customers hostage during the bank robbery Friday morning in suburban Houston.

The first suspect was taken into custody in the early stages of the robbery when there was an exchange of gunfire, detectives told CNN affiliate KPRC. The second suspect was taken into custody at the end of the standoff,
police said.

      All networked devices have IP addresses....computers dont just talk to each other, you have to have something to identify it with. Switches, Routers, you name it, every port on it has an address. Take Cisco classes....you'll have your eyes opened up to what they can track and do.

      FYI, this is all freedom of speech. Who gives a crap about IP addresses being tracked. Be proud of being american and exercise your rights, soon they will be gone.

      That's right. I'm not a texan but live here now and for the most part, people are kind, warm and welcoming and holy crap, any texans still have manners.....of course all communities have their bad apples.

    Yeah, not to mention you have to have at least an e-mail address to get on this blog & to sign up for an e-mai they ask personal info like name, phone, etc... so think about it @philmedong, you probably think they still can't track you just because they haven't yet but believe us, THEY can do whatever they want (the Government)

    To @Havok, why would someone want to waste more than $3 dollars in gas to look for their bank if they don't live close to one?! its not like everyone's bank is on every corner like a Starbucks! so instead i would go stop at my bank on my way home if i knew i needed to pull some cash out so i don't feed the ATM my $3 dollars i could use for other things like gas!
