    I love the holdup note! (From the article):

    “Hay Bro r Sis I Don’t wont eny (expletive) just give me what I want AND you wont Get hert OK! Thank you,” the note read, according to police.
    The clerk asked, “What is this?” and the man said, “Just do it,” according to the police affidavit.

    It reminds me of the scene where Woody Allen is trying to rob a bank in “Take The Money And Run”:
    Bank Teller #1: Does this look like “gub” or “gun”? 
    Bank Teller #2: Gun. See? But what does “abt” mean? 
    Woody Allen: It’s “act”. A-C-T. Act natural. Please put fifty thousand dollars into this bag and act natural. 
    Bank Teller #1: Oh, I see. This is a holdup?

    He could have copped a defense often heard in these threads- point out that in history, some laws have been unjust, ergo it is sheeplike and stupid to blindly follow any law for the sake of obeying the law (or expect others to do so), and claim that whatever you did was in fact an enlightened and noble act of civil disobedience. Direct references to the American civil rights movement and slavery optional.
