Get Out Of Jail Free Card

Posted on April 12, 2012 by


When Kimball Clark, 45, was dumped into theB67449_ebtpokey for dealing heroin, he was back on the streets in almost no time. A cop overheard him telling somebody during the course of his one phone call to “get my EBT card and go to the ATM and get the money to bail me out, get me outa here tonight,” according to an official report on the incident.

In Massachusetts, the welfare card, known as an EBT so as not to stigmatize the unfortunate recipient, can be used not only to purchase necessities, but also booze, smokes, lottery, and can even be used on cruise ships. And as this case makes clear, they can also be used to extract bail money from an ATM.

It’s almost enough to outrage even a Democrat.
