Isn't this stealing from the government? Aren't these funds FDIC insured?

I say give him a bow and a target with an arrow in the bullseye. If he can split the arrow with his shot, then let him off.

Holy, shiat, check that awesome spiderweb tie! John Dillinger, you are more my hero every day.

Crime does not pay, and that's why we bail out the criminals when their businesses go down the toilet. Only the innocent will have to carry the burden.

I'm a lawyer, but not a criminal lawyer...did this guy just get a solid issue for appeal?

Go the fark home, aussie. This AMERICA, got-dammit! Our wealth redistribution only goes one way, and it's not from top to bottom. You take your evil socialism back to the land of nightmares. Those bankers worked hard for those bailouts. If those homeless bums wanted a bailout, they should have hired better lobbyists.

I'd say this is an excellent case for jury nullification, but he's not allowed to discuss his motives.  Also, what's up with that shiat?  If he'd killed some dude because he was sleeping with his wife, the prosecution could use that motivation as evidence.

It sounds as though the judge is saying kind of tounge in cheek that he can argue the legality but he is not able to admit whether or not he feels the robber was justified. A take it as a wink and a nod to the robber even though he has to do his job and upstand the law.

I guarantee you that if he was robbing minority owned banks cause he didn't like "darkies" having banks he would be facing a new bunch of new charges.

I take it as more of the same problem with the legal system in America that causes us to put 17-year-olds in prison for consensual sex with their 16-year-old girlfriends...

The idea that the law itself is paramount, and that the jury cannot question it from the courtroom.

We've forgotten that this was one of the reasons why the jury system existed in the first place - to make sure that well-intended laws weren't inappropriately applied.

No, it really wouldn't. They wouldn't keep popping up in societies if there wasn't some sort of net benefit.

/That's not to say we don't need some sort of banking/financial system in general reform in the US.

AugieDoggyDaddy: Yep,  the world would be better  if we got rid of all the banks.


No, but it would be a better place if banks and bankers were held accountable for their actions instead of being bailed out and given bonuses for committing fraud and making bad bets. "Too big to fail" and "too big to jail" are inherently unjust concepts.

... what the fark is wrong with you people?

This man robbed a bank, kept tens of thousands of dollars for himself, probably hid away some more, gave thousands to his friends, but because he said 'fark bailouts' and gave some to other homeless people (who happen to be personal friends, as he was himself homeless), suddenly what he did is heroic and justified?

What the fark.

Good they are all crooks and this is what should happen.  The people are demanding their money back, and the banker's heads on pikes.

I'm sure the glowing praise of the anonymous internet cellar-dwellers will comfort this guy as he prepares to go to jail for a decade.

Seriously everyone who posted things like that have to be basically cellar-dwellers with very little impact on society, this is a beyond farked-up mentality to have.

The reason people don't have a problem with stealing from banks is because the banks may have farked up the entire world economy and caused a lot of grief/harm to people. It's called comeuppance and since no governmental authority has done jack shiat to provide said comeuppance, people will tend to look the other way when shiat like this happens regardless if this guys motives were exactly as he said they were. It may not be right, the people at that bank in Wyoming probably had nothing to do with the actions of the bank at large, but I can at least understand both robbing it and being okay with the guy doing it.

Only think I am mad about is that he failed.
