Only in Iowa… Apparently it’s not robbery as long as you dress funny and ask nice. A man who wore a paper bag on his head and socks on his hands walked into a convenience store and greeted the cashier by saying either “Happy Halloween” or “Trick or Treat,” and then in a soft voice, asked her to give him “the money.” He was convicted of second-degree robbery, but on appeal had the conviction overturned because, according to The Court of Appeals, the legal definition of robbery requires physical contact, a threatening gesture or at least “nonverbal physical movement.” (via)
