Chicago Bank Robber in a Wheel Chair

Saw it online-
Chicago headline, it read...
"FBI says bank robber called the cops to give confession and rolling location."
Apparently a 25 year old disabled man decided to hold up a teller and flee with $850...

Now for the kicker: The crime was committed in a bank inside the RANHURTS Shopping Center and the wheelchair convict was sentenced two and a half years and actually is from WHEELING, Illinois a suburb of the "Windy 2nd City."

Ok, either the guy failed to hear the call of a little girl in the parking lot yelling "Run Forrest Run!" 
Or he flat out forgot his hometown's varsity team cheer "Go WHEELING, Let's Go!"
Because oddly enough, the criminal called 911 on HIMSELF moments after the stickup. He was found by police at the nearest payphone, in his wheelchair, holding the loaded wallet.
Quality convicts come in all shapes and sizes.

    Whoa, another wheelie -- December 10th, 2010: "SAN DIEGO – A 71-year-old terminally ill man has been sentenced to 21 years in a California prison for rolling his wheelchair into a San Diego bank and holding it up with a replica BB gun. Judge Jeffrey Fraser said Friday that Peter Lawrence could theoretically get out of prison at age 90, when he would no longer be a threat to the public."

    Dear JS, What an amusing story! Loved your lines about "Run, Forrest, Run!" and "Go Wheeling." Sadly, it may be that this man wanted to go to jail as he knew he'd have food and shelter there. It happens often, but not in the manner described here. Very interesting. Love, Carolyn

    Stupidity has no limits. The idiot probably has a future in politics, or the circus. Jerry

    Well, I think the police deserve to have it easy in catching the bad guys ;) this made me smile, thanks! Stuff like these you sure can't make up, & all those other funnies who practically turn themselves in via their selfies on FB & Instagram, The pros of social media! You know what? It's always a pleasure to read your stuff, hopefully I do get to read more of yours, and thank you for reading mine & leaving inspiring views! I think it is better to keep off TV & news, they cause stress too much.
