I find it extremely distressing that an elderly person would feel the need to go to the extreme of robbing a bank in order to pay for his wife's surgery.
I agree but

I find it distressing that he smelled of alcohol. Makes me wonder if the so called wife's surgery was a lie.

True he could have done it sober if in fact he had been drinking. Sadly, our current system for assistance for the elderly is greatly deficient. Too many do not qualify for help when they greatly need it. Often the ones who could be self sufficient are bleeding the system and making hard for those truly in need.

What's really sad is that a little elderly man who had been drinking was able to just walk out of a bank with money he had stolen and no one saw or did anything! That's sad!
Another man was killed and burried in his back yard and not one neighbor heard or saw anything...and those houses are not far apart! I think Carlsbad needs a reality check!

No, I don't think that was it. Rather, a drunk, little old man seems to have out-smarted the lot of you here in Carlsbad!

The reality check is no one saw anything!! Just because you couldnt get by with either doesnt mean someone couldnt because obviously they did. I mean, you know as in smarts.
