You're Gonna Need a Bigger Rock: Would-Be Burglar Foiled by Pharmacy's Super-Glass

Categories: Crime

Dallas PD just sent over the video above, captured at 5 in the morning on April 3. It shows a burglary suspect using a large rock to try to bust through the door of Bioscrip Pharmacy, at 2909 Lemmon near Highway 75.

The suspect is a poorly dressed white male in his mid-30s who desperately needs to hit the gym and gives up on relatively simple tasks very easily.

Wait, is that me?

At first I thought the guy was an employee closing up for the evening because he didn't seem to be in any hurry. The point where he tried to smash the glass wasn't obvious to me at first since he casually gathered his stuff from the chair after only the one try?

I'm pretty sure this is a medical office that specializes in the treatment of HIV and AIDS and the pharmacy caters specifically to those clients needing outrageously expensive prescriptions that our fucked up healthcare system in the US makes unaffordable to many people and our financial support system to help provide those drugs to people that will literally die horrible deaths without them massively underfunded and basically completely dry of money.

In other words there is a very likely chance that this was not some common criminal trying to steal some oxy but a very sick and desperate man out of options.

Those darn rich pharmacists shouldn't put impact-resistant plastic in their doors. It makes it so difficult for the sick HIV patients to break and enter. Let's catch the poor fellow and put him in our prison health care system. That way, we can all help to pay his medical bills. And by the way, shouldn't we help out the other thieves that break into convenience stores to steal cigarettes? After all, they fell into their addiction because of the Marlboro Man.

If this guy has HIV and was diagnosed in Dallas, he knows about Ryan White and ADAP coverage.  A person with HIV has to try to stay out of care in Dallas County.  By try, I mean intentionally avoid the people whose job it is to get people into care and sign them up for assistance.
