James Verone has robbed a bank- of one dollar- in order to get medical care. This is a story that could happen, to quote Bush #2, "Only in America!" Mr. Verone was working in a convenience store when his health went downhill fast. With no benefits from his job, denied disability, he planned his crime in order to get the medical care he needs. He hopes for a felony conviction so he'll spend the next few years in jail until he's of full retirement age. Read the story here:

Call me crazy, but I don't think that's how human beings should have to live.
