    Real life 'Shawshank Redemption': Ex-con robs Milwaukee bank, hoping to be sent back to prison

    At that hearing, the ex-con and Vietnam War veteran pleaded guilty to attempted robbery of a financial institution. Gallagher, 68, had heard that health care in Wisconsin prisons was superior to other institutions and better than the care offered through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

    "I've never heard anyone rob a bank so they can get to prison so they could get health care," James Griffin, the assistant district attorney prosecuting Gallagher, said at the plea hearing. "It's a sad comment on the situation of health care in America. ... That a guy's got to rob a bank to get health care is unfortunate, to say the least."
