Man Robs Pa. Bank for $1

October 11, 2012  | 

A Northern Cambria, Pa., man attempted to rob a Pennsylvania bank for $1 in hopes that he would be sent to a federal prison near his home.

Jeffrey McMullen, a 50-year-old regular customer of an AmeriServ bank, allegedly handed notes to two tellers demanding a dollar, reports the Tribune-Democrat.

In one note, McMullen politely wrote, "Federal bank robbery. Please hand over $1.00."

The first teller recognized McMullen and reportedly thought it was a joke, telling him to go to a second teller. The second teller also thought it was a joke and began walking away, when McMullen got angry and told her to "to give him the money so no one got hurt."

You see, evidence that our prisons and justice system is too soft and comfy for thugs these days!

I'm a deputy sheriff that worked many years in a county jail. Inmates have told me more than once that they got arrested to get a medical procedure completed at no cost or to get away from the old lady and get free cable TV. With carpeted floors Federal prisons are even more plush. Rediculous!

I just have to ask why?

We had a former officer do something just as stupid. He tried to rob a bank inside a grocery store but it was only a loan office so they had no money. He took the pocket change of a teller that had just returned from lunch. And yeah he was caught.
