Great article from the Telegraph

An experienced, old-school convict would not have robbed a bank for $1 as Verone did; they, instead, would have heaved a brick through the front window of their local Post Office, a crime that’s guaranteed to result in a federal judge giving out a buffalo. For those unfamiliar with the argot, a “buffalo” is a “nickel” uh, five years? Plenty of time to get healthy. »
Earlier this week a man robbed a bank for $1 just to get access to health care through the federal prison system. The stunt worked: James Verone is now receiving medical services for a growth on his chest, two ruptured disks, and a problem with his left foot. But he’ll likely get less than a year’s time, in which case he’s said he’ll rob again.
There is something very wrong with this healthcare system
