James Verone is a 59-year-old man with medical problems. He has a growth of some sort on his chest, two ruptured disks, and a problem with his left foot. But he has no job, no health insurance, his bank account is empty, and he isn’t quite old enough for Medicare.
So he figured out an unusual solution. He went into a bank and robbed it, demanding the teller give him just one dollar. Then he sat down and waited for the police to come take him to jail. Why? Because in jail he would get free medical care.
