Makes sad sense to me and i hope micheal moore touches on this issue in his new movie "sicko"

CBS13) OROVILLE It's one of the busiest banks in town, but Tuesday, a transaction took place that left even police puzzled.

"It's certainly different than things we generally run into," said Lt. John Nickelson, Oroville Police Department.

Police say a 70 year-old Oroville man named Ale Embry went inside a Bank of America and gave the teller a robbery note, only it was a bit confusing.

"The note was not grammatically correct and the teller questioned him about it, so he told her want he wanted," said Lt. Nickelson.

The teller, sensing something odd, told her supervisor who called 911. Embry walked out, and into police custody, which turns out what he wanted all along.

"In fact, he wanted to get arrested. He told us he had some significant health issues, and he thought that was the best way to get them handled," said Brown.

That's right. Police say Embry, who had no prior record, wasn't after any money. With his health in decline and no insurance, he figured he'd be better off in jail. And that's where he sits.

In the meantime, Embry is getting basic healthcare behind bars.

The Butte County Sheriff's did not release the booking photo for Embry.
