Accessories to Crime

Two completely unrelated stories feature handicapped "criminals":

The first is from California, where police say a man in his 60s robbed a bank and made his getaway on an electric wheelchair. After robbing the bank with a black handgun, he made his way through traffic on a major thoroughfare, where witnesses saw he had both legs wrapped in bandages - the right one sticking straight out in front of him as he weaved past their cars. Police are searching for a white van in which he may have made his getaway. They are uncertain as to whether the wheelchair was a prop or if the man is really disabled.

Clear across this great country, in Kentucky, our Australian friend, Sire, came across an interesting little piece: police ticketed a handicapped man for reckless driving!

To protect and serve, indeed.
