Tyler, TX — A North Carolina man, James Verone, desperate for health care robbed a bank of $1 and then waited for police.
He did it so he could receive jail health care.
The jail doctor accuses him of manipulating the system. The 59-year-old says "If it is called manipulation, then out of necessity because I need medical care then I guess I am manipulating the courts to get medical care."
What do you think?
Is he manipulating the system, or is it fair game?
