According to the complaint, [Daniel James]Murray opened an account at Zions First National Bank on May 19 with an $85,000 check….
On May 27, he returned to the bank and tried to withdraw $12,000, but lacked proper identification.
“Not to be disrespectful, but if I don’t get this money, someone is going to die,” Murray said, according to the complaint.
With this last line, I am torn between picturing Clint Eastwood, or Politeness Man.
A bank manager was summoned and Murray was allowed to withdraw the money without proper identification.
Murray would not accept a check and demanded bills no larger than $50, the complaint says.
“We are 94 million miles from the sun, and are in-between the sun and moon, and the eagle that flies between them and it’s a giant step for mankind. … I have traveled thousands of miles to be here and know things that are going to happen. … the banking system will fail and people will die. … there will be chaos in the world,” Murray said, according to the complaint.
He also reportedly made threatening statements against the President, which necessarily becomes the news headline, although his other ramblings are far more blogworthy. We’ll say it again: News sites and blogs work differently.
