    "jbirdnc, how can you tell by a head shot whether a person is or isn't a productive member of society?"

    Well, I'm not Jbirdnc, but I'd say having a prior for drug abuse (http://webapps6.doc.state.nc.us/apps/offender/offend1?DOCNUM=0696776&SENTENCEINFO=yes&SHOWPHOTO=no&numtimesin=1)and outstanding warrants for ARMED ROBBERY and other charges kinda means he's not gonna be the next humanitarian of the year award winner.
    ....Oh wait...he is doing something productive, keeping the judicial/prison system busy.

    Well, let's see... How can I tell this person isn't a productive member of society? Well, I base that simply on 1. He's out robbing banks. 2. If this "mugshot" wasn't from his most recent police booking, it's from a previous crime. 3. That ISN'T a highschool annual photo.

    If example #1 isn't enough to warrant his lack of positive productivity to our society, then so be it. Maybe we can blame the media for the inappropriate photo used to describe a local bank robbing felon. Perhaps this individual was misunderstood? Maybe he's a good guy, who happened to make a brief error in judgement while temporarily terrorizing the poor bank employee to give him money that doesn't belong to him?

    That's funny! Ha ha ha...he left fingerprints at the bank. Oh man...I bet he placed his hand on the counter while making the 'withdrawal'. Hey, i'm sure the LEs got a kick out of that one. At least it was a peaceful robbery.

    He thought he was getting away but wait - he touched something. A finger-print was left behind. Another dummy story. He will have time on his hands in prison.lol

    Judging by his "glamour/mug shot" he looks like a very productive member of our society, whom is "regretful" for his actions.

    I visit this bank daily. Scary info, as it's been robbed several times over the past couple years as I recall. Glad to know this idiot is off the streets, if only temporarily.
