This man, James Verone, robbed a bank for one dollar. Why only one dollar? Because he knew that in prison he could get the medical care he could not afford with his part time salary as a convenience store clerk. He was approved for food stamps, but they did little to help his finances. Between his back problems, carpel tunnel, and arthritis, he simply couldn’t handle the pain any longer.

On June 9th, he sent a letter to his local paper, the Gaston Gazette, that stated: “When you receive this a bank robbery will have been committed by me. this robbery is being committed by me for one dollar. I am of sound mind but not so much sound body.”

He then took a cab to the RBC Bank, and handed the teller a note asking for one dollar and medical attention. He quietly took a seat in the lobby and waited for police to arrive.

Since Verone only stole one dollar, he was only charged with larceny. His bail, which he doesn’t plan to pay is set at $2,000, reduced from the normal $100,000. He’s scheduled to see a doctor this Friday, and hopes to get foot surgery, back surgery and to have a protrusion on his check treated.   

To me, this is the perfect example of how disturbingly corrupt and unjust our health care system has become under HMO’s. For this man, or any person for that matter, feels that he needs to be imprisoned just to see a doctor, is ridiculous. 

This is exactly what I hate about America. Why is it that you can buy an entire house with money you don’t have, but still can’t apply for health care if you don’t meet the requirements? That’s messed up.

So we’re now at a time where people will LITERALLY commit a crime, granted it was tiny scale but a crime regardless, JUST for the sake of getting medical attention because it’s THAT expensive.

Oh my.

I have written and drafted SO MUCH SHIT about these things in rants about the systems before and here’s some examples from it, 

IN 2013 A HOMELESS MAN ‘ROBBED’ A BANK FOR $1 IN THE HOPES OF BEING SENT TO PRISON AND GETTING HEALTHCARE.
THINK HE’S THE ONLY ONE?
GUESS AGAIN
AND AGAIN
AND AGAIN
AND FUCKING AGAIN
AND NO, WOMEN(AND THEIR FUCKING UNBORN CHILDREN) ARE NOT EXCLUDED FROM THESE “CRIME SPREE’S” EITHER

Yeah.

U.

MOTHERFUCKIN AAAAAAAA, EVERYONE.
