Man Robs Bank to get Medical Care
When a man robs a bank to get medical care, something is seriously wrong in this country.
A very strange bank robbery
Richard James Verone, after working for the Coca Cola Company for seventeen years, was laid off his job three years ago, and he has not been able to find work since. He has two ruptured discs and an undiagnosed growth on his chest, but with his unemployment benefits expired and with no medical insurance, he cannot afford to get the help he needs. Then he got an idea.
Yesterday, July 26, 2012, Richard walked into an RBC Bank in North Carolina and held it up, demanding one dollar from the teller, who gave him the money. He then went over and sat on the floor, assuring the people in the bank he would cause no trouble, and waited for the cops to arrive and take him to jail. Verone, who has never been in trouble with the law, said he felt that in jail he might get the medical attention he needs.
