34. I wonder if sometimes it's a case where an elder decides to commit a crime and go to prison -

because that's the only way to be sure of a roof over their heads, regular meals - such as they are, and at least minimal health care. I read a news story about that once. Little old elderly dude robbed a bank at gunpoint, then sat down quietly to wait for the police. He'd decided that was the only way to be sure of even nominally being looked after in his sunset years, because otherwise he was destitute.
