I suppose the bank will "go under" from the loss! Maybe he'll get the same sentence as Bernie M. But $ 80 could buy two fill ups of gas for the homeless man's Humvee! So I quess it was worth the risk.I would plan to risk my first offense probation verdict on tunneling in and out of Fort Knox and taking all I can carry!Maybe more if I can steal a bike with saddle bags and a trailer hitch.

Now he will have heat, food, water and a bed to sleep in. I feel sorry for the poor guy.

I can not judge him, as I am not in the boot of being homeless, so I could not imagine what I would do.

The article didn't say they guy was homeless, only that he was caught at a homeless shelter. Easy to draw that conclusion though.:)

Did he just ask for the quarter and dimes?

If the bank only had $80 on hand the FDIC might be concerned that the bank on under capitalized

If he had gotten a job inside the bank as a high ranking executive, he could have stolen eighty million dollars instead of only eighty dollars, then used five million dollars, in other words only about six percent of the eighty million, to hire some politically connected lawyers to feed some overly gullible appeals court judges a lot of lies and garbage as to how the eighty million dollars he stole was legitimate compensation and legitimate bonuses for a job "well done" as he drove the financial institution he looted into bankruptcy, and then finally he could have collected tens of millions or hundreds of millions more as a retirement bonus and going away present for that job "well done."

In fact speaking of big companies giving their highest ranking executives huge bonuses for a job "well done," Peter Darbee, the retiring CEO of PG & E, in other words the PG & E of the San Bruno pipeline explosion and eight resulting deaths, recently decided to retire, and at least partly so that PG & E - and which has suffered from horrible PR and image problems as a result of those San Bruno deaths and also information recently coming out that PG & E's records and safety "inspections" were a joke - could get off to a fresh start in its relations with the general public.

And as a going away present PG & E decided to give Darbee a going away bonus of thirty five million dollars, and instead of suing him for return of his last several years of salary as he presided over an institution that he allowed to get totally out of control.

Our laws in all their majesty prohibit rich and poor alike from sleeping under bridges, stealing bread, and shoplifting shoes and warm clothing.
