Should we be shocked by the drugs?

Meet Christopher Lamarque Miller. He might have one of the biggest bullshit cop-out excuses in bank robbery history. You see, Miller played some college football at Missouri State, not exactly a school pumping out NFL talent. But Miller had dreams. The guy is now 27 and still hasn't gotten over the fact that the NFL never came calling. How upset? He admittedly went and robbed a bank to get NFL rich. Not kidding. JUMP!
Via: Police are seeking information about a man who robbed an Orlando Bank of America late Thursday morning. Surveillance images at the bank on Conway Road show the man holding up a paper that stated, "Give me all big bills no bands no one gets shot." True, there's no logo on that baseball hat, but it was impossible to pass up this guy's bank robbery poster. Did he hyphenate "bonds?" Scared to turn in this punk? We will: firstname.lastname@example.org

Police said Brian Sweeney walked into the Citizen's Bank at 1440 Central Avenue, and then handed the teller a note demanding money. He was given $500, then left the bank. Wait, that has to be a misprint. $500? That's it? A couple weeks of minimum wages vs. multiple years in jail? We read up on this guy. He was living in a Super 8. Seriously.
Remember the Red Sox fan last week we wrote about who decided to rob a New England bank without wearing long sleeves to cover that sweet Sox tat? Yeah, well police eventually arrested Ramon Felix and he had a court date yesterday in which he was, ironically, wearing long sleeves. Nope, the tat wasn't visible. The guy is a known doper and was caught in a drug rehab facility. He's like the Ryan Leaf of New England with a Sox tat. Sad, sad story. (via Sun-Chronicle)
