An Olympic Punishment

Ben Franklin Schumpeter VIII

My inspiration for this story came from this Youtube video, Subway Long Jump.  
---------------------------------------------------------

Jamon Cardom Smith was arrested two months ago at the Wall Street station for jumping the turnstile of the New York City Subway system and for not paying the subway fare.  It was his fourth arrest this year for the crime.  When questioned by Judge Wayne McDonald why an employed well paid stock broker like himself would jump the turnstile, Jamon replied, “Because it goes against my Wall Street training to pay for something that I can get for free.”
