 Although this is not a funny issue, as many are suffering terribly in Spain at the moment, this story does have a comical edge!

many at time have we heard people jokingly saying "We're better off in prison, free rent , free food, free everything". Well someone figured that would be the best solution to his problems....

Read this news article on a man who attempted to hold up a bank in Malaga, with the hope he would get sent to prison! People do crazy things in desperate times!

In London, it has been the way some people, mainly vagrants in the winter, have done things for years.
I dealt with several such cases in the 1960's.
I remember one guy, he smashed the window of a tailors, put on a jacket and waited outside for the police to arrive.
One o f my first arrests was an guy who appeared drunk when he saw me. I asked him if he was OK and he said he was drunk and wanted a bed for the night. It was a cold night.  I told him he was not drunk. He said if I took him to the police station he would be drunk when he got there. I took pity on him. He convinced the sergeant that he was rolling drunk. Five shillings or one night was the penalty at court the next day, and of course he had done the one night.
