KANSAS CITY, Mo. An economist on leave from the federal agency that insures bank deposits has been charged with the April 11 attempted robbery of a Kansas City-area bank.
Jeff Walser said he had a bomb in his briefcase and demanded money at the Bank of America branch in Independence, but did not take $41,000 brought to him by an employee, according to an indictment filed Tuesday.
Walser, 51, surrendered to police and was being held in federal custody, the U.S. attorney's office said.
Walser told police that he has health problems and was "alone, discouraged and tired of working" and that his plan was to be arrested and not tell police he required thrice-weekly dialysis treatments to survive.

He had medical issues and was lonely.
Or is that only for people who are busted for downloading or trading child porn?
Gee maybe that’s a way I can obtain medical treatment. (sarcasm intended)
I wouldn’t wish dialysis on anyone.
Guess your name isn’t Wanda Sykes.......
I hear ya, have a sis-in-law that did it for years, not sure how the Judge will see it tho.
Maybe he can cop a mental defect plea but I doubt it. He may end up milking cows at Lompoc if he’s lucky, they enjoy company. :-)
I feel sorry for him. I hope someone can help him get his head on straight.
@ least he's not running the FDIC like the bank robber who's running Treasury.
Trying to cover for George Bush, I see.
Hey, he was just doing it the old fashioned way, after he’d seen That One doing it the new fashioned way.
