American Justice


Because he only asked for $1, Verone was charged with larceny, not bank robbery. But he said that if his punishment isn't severe enough, he plans to tell the judge that he'll do it again. His $100,000 bond has been reduced to $2,000, but he says he doesn't plan to pay it.

In jail, Verone said he skips dinner to avoid too much contact with the other inmates. He's already seen some nurses and is scheduled to see a doctor on Friday. He said he's hoping to receive back and foot surgery, and get the protrusion on his chest treated. Then he plans to spend a few years in jail, before getting out in time to collect Social Security and move to the beach.

Dude robs a bank for one dollar.. gets sent to jail where he can get the medical care he needs.. and when he gets out, he'll be eligible for Social Security and Medi-Care.

That's using your fuckin' brain right there.

By the way.. as a reminder.. that we live in the richest nation on the planet.. by far. If he lived in say.. Canada, he'd have been treated and been able bodied enough to hold down a job and earn a living.

But we're not Canada. We're not Socialists! Damn-it!!!
