maybe he was just sick of supporting himself and decided the easiest way to never have to pay his own bills again was just to go to jail for a good long while.

Rosalea: Nothing.... nothing.. NOTHING in life is so bad that Id want to go to jail and get assraped, and probably get AIDS.

On Tuesday, U.S. Magistrate William C. Beaman ordered Waldon to undergo a mental evaluation, which was requested by Waldon's public defender.

...yeah, well, that's a no-brainer, or maybe that was his problem.

FBI - Full Blown Idiot. And people wonder why there is overcrowding in our prisons (besides the absurd drug laws)

Do people actually get butt raped in prison? Isn't that like an urban legend or something? Cuz if you do, you could sue the state for hostile work conditions or neglect or reckless endangerment or whatever.

I can't remember what movie it was...but the coolest way to rob a bank that I have ever seen was when the guy went into the bank dressed as a clown, calmly gathered all of the money and made everyone lay down, went into the bathroom and changed out of the clown suit and trashed it, put the money in a backpack and laid on the ground himself. He just waited until the cops showed up and walked out with his back pack full of cash.

so cool.

Magistrate Willy Beamish? Oh, Beaman, never mind. Wasted hours of my life on that game on Sega CD.

I am fairly sure that it does happen. quite often.

Happens all the time. On Oz, at least.

Maybe robbing a bank downstairs from the local FeeBee office is a cry for help ... or a cry for better education ...

The why bother going to the bank? Could have just gone into the police station and said he had a bomb. Selfish bastard, as the coppers then had to come from over the road to arrest him. Probably disturbed someones doughnut and coffee break.

If he wanted to be caught and 'retire,' making it a federal offense probably means he will end up n a fed pen, which is probably better than a state pen. Maybe not so stupid.

in this guys case it wasn't a good thing. but considering that here in the state, mobsters succeesfully put pressure on a bank, not to rent office space to the fbi. the fbi ended up renting out of another building. so i think having the fbi around is a hit or miss kind of thing.

GALE: " All right you hayseeds, it's a stick-up! Everbody freeze! Everbody down on the ground!"

HAYSEED: " Well which is it young fella? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? Mean to say, iffen I freeze, I can't rightly drop. And iffen I drop, I'm a gonna be in motion. Ya see-"

Nutdip: Gotta file that one behind the page about the guy who filed the fake taxreturn for 1.5 mil.

We got a call on a Monday morning about a missing bank. When Dallas was expanding North, some genius decided to put a "temporary" bank inside a mobile home in the middle of nowhere. They just put the thing up on jacks (didn't remove the tires) and installed a skirt. Telephone and power were just temporary drops and there was no plumbing, just a portable outhouse. The hitch had been disabled simply by putting a padlock in place.
Over the weekend, somebody came in, cut the cables, removed the padlock, dropped the jacks and hauled the whole thing away.
Explain that one to the home office...

This story is SOOOOOOOO fake. No one would be that stupid and there is no such place as Wyoming.

Wyoming comes from the Navaho word meaning "No State here". I mean has anyone ever met someone from Wyoming???

/Garfield (only funny thing he has ever done)
2003-04-17 02:21:39 PM  
The bank branch I usually go to is in the same building as the St. John city hall and police department. I've often though that there's no freaken way someone would try and rob the place.

And I'm pretty sure the bank was there first.
2003-04-17 02:23:39 PM  
Funny and related story:

My uncle worked in the fbi for over 30 years, did everything from investigating the columbia drug cartel to leading and later training the swat team. Anyways, one payday the entire group (somewhere around 10-15) of fbi agents went down to the back to deposit their checks. Well as luck would have it, as they were standing in line some guy decided to hold up the bank. Suficient(sp?) to say, he was apprehended fairly quickly.

Somehow it was funnier when he told it.

2003-04-17 02:23:41 PM  
Well, since you asked, Stop prison

Also this guy is prolly mental so odds are he wont be put in a buttrape prison

well, no actually. I tried to drive through it once, but the states changed from idaho to south dakota. hmm.. It kinda just dissappeared.
2003-04-17 02:31:49 PM  
Turn to the right!

Bitin' off of Skinink. Props to ya.
2003-04-17 02:34:49 PM  
Bah, it would've been more entertaining if the idiot robbed the bank while a news team was there with their camera, and, coincidnetally, the FBI's HRT was there to make some withdrawals after training.

still in possession of their glock 22s of course

Sigh, tis only a dream

actually, i spent the night in Wyoming once, on a road trip to Minnesota. the bathroom at the motel office had a cock ring / novelty condom vending machine, and the town hall doubled as both a video rental place and a greasy spoon diner. it was pretty farked up.
2003-04-17 02:39:48 PM  

I was expecting some flack from the West Coast people like yourself. I guess Wyoming, Nebraska, and Oregon to us is what Delaware is to you (A void).

I seriously have never met anyone from Wyoming.

Knocking off a bank in a FBI building across the street from the police station? Yes, I'm sure he was an intelligent man who simply wanted to go to jail!

The perfect crime!

It's those submissive homosexual criminals who just LOVE the idea of federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison!
2003-04-17 02:45:07 PM  
Simple: he wanted to get caught, whether is was subconscious or directly.
2003-04-17 02:45:55 PM  
BTW, every time I think of prison I hear Dave Chappelle saying, "SPREAD YOUR CHEEKS AND LIFT YOUR SACK!"

delawho? delawhat? delewhere?

I've met people from wyoming, and delaware. In fact I have family in both states.

But then again I'm east/west coaster who has lived in both coasts and states in between.
2003-04-17 02:53:22 PM  
or maybe I should say on both coasts...I've yet to actually live in them and would prefer to avoid that happening.
2003-04-17 02:57:17 PM  
I always thought deleware didnt really exist, except on paper. I've incorporated there, everyone else has too, its almost like the state of deleware is just a legal construct.
2003-04-17 03:25:04 PM  
Sure Rosalea (cough) BS (cough) hahahah Just kidding. I bet your family is very exciting

Delaware basically sucks. Their claim to fame is TAX FREE SHopping... wooooo

I actually got to see the screen-door factory and where JC Penney's sends back their defective merchandise.
2003-04-17 04:15:58 PM  
This happened 70 miles south of here. Ran it in my evening news last night. What a MORON! Must have been from Nebraska.....*hehehehe*....just kidding!
2003-04-17 04:16:53 PM  
I bet your family is very exciting

no not really *grins*
2003-04-17 05:06:44 PM  
Robbing a bank in a FBI building? That's like firing a gun to a cop when you are surrounded by a swat team.
2003-04-17 05:48:47 PM  
About as smart as the guys who robbed or tried to rob the san francisco fire & Police federal credit union a few years ago
