According to a poice report, a man later identified as Curdett Jermain Jackson, 22, approached the 42-year-old man about 1 p.m. at a park on Bohler Avenue and asked for a few dollars. After the victim explained that he had only a few dollars for himself, the stranger left, then returned holding two bricks and demanding the money.

The suspect said that if the bricks didn’t persuade the victim, then he had a gun that would.

The suspect took $17 and walked away dragging a lawn mower behind him, police said.

Jackson was found on Moore Avenue, and the mower was on a porch nearby. He was booked into the Richmond County jail on charges of robbery by intimidation.

What was he thinking? A Robber mind

The $17 is going to cost the taxpayers $100K to process and jail this person, whose head is likely just as thick as the bricks he use to rob the person.

Sooner or later society is going to have to start charging these idiots for room / board & Medical. If the government considers Unemployment, SS, and other services Taxable Income, then why not the free stuff that comes with prison time?

This would not of happen if we had Obama Guns for the poor. ;-)
