Reality stranger than fiction
A Texas master criminal's attempt to rob a Dallas bank ended badly after the teller requested two forms of ID before handing over cash. Nathan Wayne Pugh, 49, was on parole for two previous aggravated robberies when he marched into a branch of Wells Fargo to make an illegal withdrawal. Confronted by the teller's demand for …
The chances of him passing on his genes whilst in prison is remote (I hope)!
I agree with a previous poster though - what sort of dire straits is this person in to drive them to try and rob a bank of $800?
Maybe they are just so ill-educated and/ or stupid that they also believe in religion.
On the other hand maybe it was an easy way for them to get a room with bed and board for free.
This didn't seem that aggravated if he obliged to requests for ID. I don't condone this of course but 8 years seems harsh for $100 / year. How about "two cash robberies, as well as a series of violent 'strangulation' robberies and one aggravated taking and driving away offence" to get 7 years?
So he didn't actually strangle anyone. It can be a major error, being a driver on a robbery. I know someone who drove on a robbery. During the robbery, one of the robbers shot an off-duty "have-a-go" copper dead. They all got 25+ years, including the driver, who was also considered guilty of murder, even though he wasn't armed & didn't get out of the car.
If you're going to commit crime, fraud is definitely the way to go. If you do it right, you may not even be committing a criminal offence, for vastly greater returns...
If homeless person was mugged in the street and had every penny they own taken from them then police would laugh at them for reporting it, yet when someone steels an insignificant percentage of a Banks wealth it's armed man hunt time, lock'um up and throw away the key. Don't get me started on what happens when the Bank robs the tax payer.
Robber held up a convenience store near where I used to live, and the clerk handed over the money. Then the thief demanded a 6-pack of beer as well, and the clerk demanded ID as he "could get in real trouble" handing over beer to a minor. The ID was produced, the beer was handed over.
The police were waiting for the thief when he got home.
Smiley face because I always enjoy reading cases about dumb criminals.
from two of my personalities:
1. If somebody with a parole sentence behind his neck goes to rob a bank...or rob anything for that matter, then that person WANTS to be in jail.
2. if somebody with a parole sentence behind his neck goes to rob a bank...or rob anything for that matter, then this country´s legal system seriously fails to deter people from crime.
