No matter how much “assistance” taxpayers provide, there is always going to be a segment of the population that is beyond help. A case in point recently occurred in Oregon.
According to Oregon Live, a 50-year-old homeless man recently walked into a bank, held it up for a single dollar, then sat down and waited for police to show up.
The suspect, Timothy Deal Alsip, was taken into custody by sheriff’s deputies without incident. The report said he was “booked into the Clackamas County Jail on suspicion of second-degree robbery with bail set at $250,000.”
Desperation takes its toll
Deputy Mark Nikolai, a sheriff’s office spokesman, said a man entered the Bank of America branch, 9171 S.E. 82nd Ave., shortly before 10:30 a.m. and approached a teller.
“He handed over a note saying ‘This is a hold up. Give me a dollar,’” Nikolai said. After receiving $1, he “had a seat in the lobby.”
