So there is a guy here in the good ole NC, Richard James Verone.
He is 59 broke, jobless, and has health ailments in which he is in pain. Apparently he could not get medical care because he has no insurance. So what did he do?
Something quite interesting to me.
He walked into a RBC bank handed the teller a note that said he was robbing them but only wanted one dollar and then told her he would be waiting for the police in the sitting area. He went over and sat down and waited to be arrested. Crazy you may ask? I say no. Desperate is the word I would use. See he needed medical care and could not seem to get any so he thought well, if I go to jail then I will get great medical care. And that's just what happened. Apparently he has several ailments but a growth on his chest sounds scariest to me. He had no weapons, just a plan. So now he is in jail and receiving medical care.
It is a sad damn day and time when prisoners get better health care than no criminal working good ole Americans. Someone should really take a look at that. I have not the solution but the awareness. You all know the hellacious time I have had with my healthcare provided by the county. I have no insurance and do not qualify for state insurance. I can't get in anywhere but the clinic. I do pay probably as much as most of you pay for your copay or even more, but the quality of care I get is crap. I am basically without medical care as well. Should I rob a bank? Or commit some crime so I can go get the hookup at the big house? Never thought of that option. But it is just sad that people are so desperate for basic health care that they would throw away their freedom just to live. I don't actually condone what he did but I totally get it.
