So, it has come to this… Man Robs Bank to Get Medical Care in Jail

“Study this face carefully, and then go look in the mirror. This is the face of the “new reality” in America. The American public has been sold out by the powers that be, and we will all pay the price sooner or later. Our tax dollars are going toward financing corporate greed and corrupt politicians, etc. None of us are immune.”


Man robs bank to get medical care in jail

Some people who need medical care but can’t afford it go to the emergency room. Others just hope they’ll get better. James Richard Verone robbed a bank.

Earlier this month, Verone (pictured), a 59-year-old convenience store clerk, walked into a Gastonia, N.C., bank and handed the cashier a note demanding $1 and medical attention. Then he waited calmly for police to show up.

He’s now in jail and has an appointment with a doctor this week.

Verone’s problems started when he lost the job he’d held for 17 years as a Coca Cola deliveryman, amid the economic downturn. He found new work driving a truck, but it didn’t last. Eventually, he took a part-time position at the convenience store.

But Verone’s body wasn’t up to it. The bending and lifting made his back ache. He had problems with his left foot, making him limp. He also suffered from carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis.

Then he noticed a protrusion on his chest. “The pain was beyond the tolerance that I could accept,” Verone told the Gaston Gazette. “I kind of hit a brick wall with everything.”

    Scotty that,s a myth . Those illegal aliens are here because they are hired by the multi – national companies
    that run this country . They are sitting on trillions in cash, having record years, and this high lites America today ..
    Medical costs are the # 1 reason for personal bankruptcies in the US .
    When health insurers dictate who they will insure & who they won’t , they profit we lose .
    When banks regulate the regulators , they profit we lose .
    When big pharma dictates ” no price negotiations ” for drugs, they profit we lose .
    When energy companies keep us on oil and (tell you nuclear is safe ) while raping & plundering the world over , WE LOSE .

    He should have told the hospital he was an illegal alien and he would have received free medical care.
