Since when is it wrong to dress up like your dead mother?

A guy in New York has been fooling people for years by dressing up like an old lady and collecting elderly benefits in the name of his deceased mother. So he dressed up like an old woman and had a guy pose as his nephew for six years, who hasn't had those periods? He got away with $115,000 dollars (equivalent to 70,633 British pounds) meanwhile bank robbers wielding assault rifles get away with more every day! This guy did something nonviolent, clever, and disturbing. To me, that's always a good mix.

What got to me was the way the cops talked about his disguise. They seemed shocked that he wore a wig, lipstick, big sunglasses, and scarf around his neck to cover his adam's apple. Yeah, that's not a shocker. Any man dressing up as an old lady would need those items most likely. You wouldn't walk into a bank with a walker and shawl and think that's enough to fool people. The guy did what he felt he needed to do, what you should be concerned with is how he went unnoticed like that for six years!

Now presumably because of everyone's embarrassment, this guy and his accomplice are facing up to 25 years in prison. Just for being like Norman Bates and wanting to keep the memory of his mother alive in the world! Then you have Donte Stallworth, wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns, who killed a guy while driving drunk and is looking at 30 days in jail. What kind of world do we live in, where a man dressed up like a bat, gets my press?!
