When you read about a native of Wisconsin so desperate to get out of student loan debt that they rob a bank, then tell the police they will confess only if promised a long jail sentence, or they will clam up, and if release, do t again, you have to ask WTF?
A man who wore a three-dimensional Bucky Badger hat when he allegedly robbed an East Side credit union last week told police that he wants to go to prison and needed the money because he has $250,000 in student debt.
Randall H. Hubatch, 49, of Madison, was charged Friday with armed robbery for the Jan. 11 robbery of the Summit Credit Union, 1799 Thierer Road. What stood out about the robbery was Hubatch’s choice of apparel, which included the Bucky Badger hat.
“If the district attorney agrees to send me to prison for a long time, then I will confess and plead guilty,” Hubatch told Madison police Detective Tom Helgren after his arrest on Monday, according to a criminal complaint. “Otherwise, I have nothing else to say, and if released I will do it again.”
Hubatch told police he is “slightly autistic” and diabetic and can’t afford his prescribed medication.
An online UW-Madison directory lists Hubatch as a lead custodian at Union South on the UW-Madison campus. University spokesman John Lucas said Hubatch is not a current student but earned a bachelor’s in English in 1998 and a law degree in 2004.
I guess the dude wants free room & board, free meals, free healthcare, and free sex of course, and lots of time so he doesn’t have to pay back the undischargable loans? Guess he doesn’t think the new student loan racket or Obamacare are either a good deal if he is willing to go to prison to get healthcare and avoid paying back loans.
And if you are going to call me crule for being this insensitve to this poor guy’s predicament, seeing that the guy is not all there, then I have to say that Wisconsin school’s law programs must let any idiot in. Actually, come to think of it, when you have the current school loan laws we have straddled secondary education bound people with, who cares? Certainly not the law program at any school, and definitely not the one at the school this genius attended. And for that matter I can not see why any school would even work too hard to make sure people are qualified or earn their degrees, unless it is to keep them in the system as long as possible, to collect the cash. know what I am saying?
