I know this isn't the first case of this, and I'm sure it won't be the last, but it makes me sad and sick at the same time:
Verone said he asked for $1 to show that his motives were medical, not monetary, according to news reports. With a growth in his chest, two ruptured disks and no job, Verone hoped a three-year stint in prison would afford him the health care he needed.
I hope he *does* get the health care he needs and is able to be safe, and become healthy, while in jail. Disgusting that it should come to this, though.
