Robbing a bank? Don't warn everyone

At first, the story sounds funny. Looking at it a little more closely, however, it's really not.

Francis Coleman, a 40-year-old, unemployed machinist, has made headlines because he told a news station he was going to rob a Bank of America the next morning and that they should be there to tape the whole thing. Well, the news station called the police, and the police went to Coleman's house and arrested him.

But this really isn't the case of the dumb criminal; it's really the story of a man at the end of his rope, a man who made a bad decision that's now going to cost him, which makes this story even sadder.
