Another reason to be glad I’m Canadian: “Mr Crutchfield told police that he shot the postman as a way of escaping medical debts of $90,000 (51,000).

He said he feared losing his home and thought that living in prison would be better than surviving on the street.

“He was saying that he wanted to be cared for by the federal government, that he was in poor health and wanted to be taken care of,” Atlanta postal inspector Tracey Jefferson said.”
