Man Robs Bank For $1 To Go To Prison For Health Care [Video]

 

N.C. Man Allegedly Robs Bank of $1 To Get Health Care In Jail

“… I say, ‘I’ll be sitting right over here, on the chair, waiting for the police,'” Richard James Verone told reporters about the robbery attempt at a RBC bank in Gastonia, North Carolina.

The 59-year-old man handed a female teller a note demanding one dollar and claiming that he had a gun. The unarmed man sat on a couch and waited for police. Verone told reporters he has a growth in his chest, two ruptured disks and no job and hoped a three-year stint in prison would afford him the health care he needed.

The larceny charge will most likely award him a sentence no longer than a year if convicted. His court date is not until June 28th. Will this start a trend in the hood for health care if it works out for the N.C man? Listen to the emergency call.

    IT WOULD BE IRONIC IF THEY JUST GAVE HIM PROBATION AND COMMUNITY SERVICE.

    What a sad sad story! Is this what America health care has come to? As we continue to rebuild Iraq.Afghan, Pakistan, our country continues to sink even lower. God save us all and god bless you Richard Varone.
