A Man Robs a Bank For $1 So He Can Go to Jail

I have had many discussions with various people about the living conditions for inmates. Some argue that the living conditions are terrible and a lot of people say that the living conditions are WAY to good. This story makes me think that life in prison is the way to go if you don’t have health care.

According to the New York Time last Thursday, 59-year-old James Verone of Gastonia, North Carolina went into a branch of RBC Bank to rob it.  He handed the teller a note that read, quote, “This is a bank robbery.  Please only give me $1.”

The teller did.  Then James walked away, sat down in a chair in the bank, and told the teller he was going to wait for the police.

His reason?  James is unemployed, doesn’t have health insurance, and has some medical problems.

So he says he’s HOPING to get three years in jail where he can have his issues taken care of . . . and by the time he gets out he’ll be old enough for Social Security.

James has an unknown growth on his chest, two ruptured discs in his back, and a problem with his left foot.

He’s a little worried that he was TOO loose about his bank robbery though.  He didn’t use a weapon and only stole a dollar so he was charged with larceny, which is a lesser charge than bank robbery.
