Karma is a b*tch, and can bite you in the butt!
Sooner or later, you are going to get as good as you gave! You have to wonder if this guy thought this was the best way to reap the rewards of his past actions! Another case of the bad guys playing the system for all it's worth!
Fugitive surrenders to get cancer treatment; sheriff doesn't want to pay

A man who eluded Rock County authorities for six years turned himself in earlier this month because he realized he needed treatment for cancer.
But the sheriff didn't want taxpayers footing that bill, and asked a court to order the inmate released, so someone else would pick up the tab.
According to the Janesville Gazette, it's unclear who that will be, but that Anthony S. Darwin, 30, was in surgery in Madison Thursday regardless.
A doctor who initially treated Darwin at Rock County Jail testified at a emergency court hearing that he has testicular cancer and called his prognosis bleak, the Gazette reports.
Darwin, of Beloit, had pending charges of aggravated battery, bail jumping, battery, robbery with use of force, substantial battery and identity theft going back to 2004 when he turned himself in Jan. 10.
I'm torn between two thoughts on this one. I'm feeling bad for the guy's condition, but have to ask myself if he felt bad when he committed the crimes against other people! Probably not!
I can't help but think that is a little bit of payback from a higher authority! My sympathy is gonna be pretty slow in coming, ya know?
Coffee in the kitchen today. It's starting to rain outside!
