Scott Catt, 50, and his 20-year-old son Hayden and 18-year-old daughter Abby stole $100,000 in two bank robberies before they were arrested at their middle-class apartment complex.

True story, today I took my macbook to get RAM into a computer store (8GB up from 2GB so farking good) and they were on the phone to the police trying to explain how a guy that used a stolen credit card was coming in as they spoke to pick up $2500 laptops and shiat, blah blah as I left I saw the guy go in - tattoos, junkie, on a bike and went in wearing a helmet and sunglasses and I dialed police and said that a guy went in and robbed the place at knife point.

Do you think I helped?

Im kinda waiting to hear back from the cops.

Had they been successful, "it" would have helped them as a family. It would certainly have taken care of their money problems.

Nope! RTFA: "they emptied their bags and realized they had stolen $70,000... But the money was gone in just a month."

It's just like winning the lottery. People who get some easy money just tend to burn through it and are no better off (and usually worse off) than when they started. We humans are dumb that way.

The family that robs banks together, gets spanked together.

Didn't Dustin Hoffman and Matthew Broderick do a movie like this in the 80s?

FTA: 'The children only got involved after Catt moved to Texas for a new job as an engineer at energy-firm Kinder Morgan.  The job paid a comfortable $40/hour but Catt couldn't help start thinking about another robbery and getting more money per bust with a 'team of accomplices'.

'When I look back on what I did, what led to this place, I would have been better off-we all would have been better off-if I had gone on welfare and been a stay-at-home dad.'


Wut

Sounds like he got greedy even though he had a good paying job at one point. I'm having a hard time feeling any sympathy. Especially when he thinks no one gets hurt because the money is insured. I'm sure the banks and insurance companies aren't going to squeeze everyone else for more money when they factor in their losses.

I read this elsewhere other than the daily fail - basically, the father, fresh from being depressed from losing his wife to cancer, got a thrill from robbing the first two banks, and the satisfaction of being able to pull the family together from the proceeds, that he just couldn't quit.  Wasn't so much about the money, but what the money could do for him that was the big draw.

I thought that it was that the family that plays together, stays together.  Or was it prays together?

/the father was doing it wrong

Yeah...

If you're impulsive enough to suddenly decide robbing banks is your best financial decision, and continue doing it after getting a well paying job no less, then you're probably not the type of rational conservative person that puts that money away in savings and only uses it as needed. That kinda person is more likely to impulsively purchase everything they fancy until the money is gone.
