A US man, Raymond Carl Knudson, robs a bank in Gresham, Ore., then confesses to police within minutes to protest the recession. He was inspired by a film about the 2007 economic crisis.

Knudson, 50, entered the Bank of America branch on April 6 and gave a note to a teller reading, “Give me all the money no marked bills no die pack.”

He then drove directly to the Gresham Police Department with his pilfered $425 and confessed to the crime.

Police said Knudson told them he took the money because he had viewed “Inside Job,” a documentary about the causes of the 2007-2008 global financial crisis.

On June 25, he pleaded guilty to the crime.

Knudson faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced Sept. 10.
