This guy was a customer??? The bank got his address from their records??? Sounds to me like the guy wanted to get caught. If convicted, he's gonna get free room and board for awhile. Free medical. Free TV. Free legal advice. Free everything (except freedom to walk the streets). In these tough times, being a bank robber doesn't sound like such a bad deal. ONLY KIDDING OF COURSE. But, it makes you wonder what his motive was, doesn't it?

Contrary to what television "teaches" us, the vast majority of criminals are either dumb to the core, or of average intelligence but poorly educated.
No Einstein, this guy.....
