Instapundit highlights a sad bank robber - trying to get money to deal with student debt.
With a plastic Star Wars toy gun in his pocket, Hubatch told police, he wrote a note demanding $500 and told a teller not to stall because he didn't want to hurt anyone. He said he also wrote that he would shoot anyone who followed him to his car, noting to (detective Tom) Helgren that he put in the reference to the car to throw people off because he doesn't have a car.
He told Helgren he has $250,000 in student loans that he can't pay. He said he asked for $500 because he thought Summit would not care about $500 and would simply give it to him.
