US bank robber turned in by sons

Oh those fucking little ingrates.

Illinois bank robber William Alfred Ginglen's son Jared recognised his father from bank surveillance video posted on a police website - and after consulting his brothers, turned him in.

I love my father. Very much. If he robbed a bank, I really don't think I'd tell anyone. Would I take some of the stolen money? Umm...let's read on.

His three sons say they were just putting into practice the lessons he taught them - and they hope he will understand.

Yeah, I'm sure while he's rotting away in a jail cell for the rest of his life, getting his ass kicked by some guy nicknamed T-Bone, he's going to say to himself, "Boy, I raised those sons of mine right."
If my father shot somebody during the robbery, than yes, maybe I would turn him in. Maybe. I don't know if I could. My father put up with a lot of my shit over the years.

Al Ginglen, the former marine and grandfather of seven had robbed at least seven banks to pay for a crack cocaine habit, prostitutes, hotel rooms, and a long-time girlfriend with a daughter.

Whoa, Daddy's got a brand new bag.

Conveniently for prosecutors, Ginglen had kept a diary during his nine-month life of crime, during which he stole nearly $60,000 from banks in the state of Illinois.

To bad his father never taught him not to WRITE DOWN CONFESSIONS!

Now that I think about it, my father called the cops on me three times when I was a teenager. Fuck it, he'd be on his way to the jailhouse too.

this is truly a fucked up story, sounds like a red state issue with a white hood involved and a confederate flag on the hood of the car, kind of story.

Yeah, one might think if it weren't for the bank robbery this would have aired on Jerry Springer
