I can't help but laugh, I really can't. I mean, I've been speaking out against "free medical care for inmates" for how long now? Latest one was in the sex change operation thread, for inmates. And here we have a citizen who robs a bank, just so the taxpayers can pay his medical bill.

Way to go criminal justice system.

Looks like the Liberal Elite of Exisle have finally managed to silence the last remaining Conservative voice on the board.

I think it's more relevant to how criminals and the poor often have access to better medical care than working class people who don't have health benefits from a large employer.

Some folks have died because they didn't have the money for health care. Only the strong survive-and in this instance, strength=money.

More people should try this - small crime, light sentence, get health care they can't get any other way.  Maybe it would drive home the need that this country needs universal health care. Unfortunately the jails are already overcrowded so the charges will probably be dismissed or he'll just get a fine and he still won't be able to afford health care.  

I do have to wonder if he he tried an ER, though.

If the health care that working class people get is even worse than what I received when I was poor, then I'd be hard put to call it care at all.
