How NOT to support Virginia Tech

Last Friday April 20 was Orange and Maroon Effect Day across the country. What normally is a day where VT students and alumni don their school colors to show support for their athletics teams became a nationwide event where students from other schools also sported the Hokies colors. Great idea right?

Well, yes, unless you decide to rob a bank while wearing orange and maroon.

Robert Kirk Newton walked into a First Citizens bank in Carolina Beach, North Carolina and handed the teller a note demanding all the money. The teller gave him $2500 and a red dye pack in a paper bag. The red dye pack exploded right away and the police caught Newton within minutes on the Fort Fisher-Sourthport Ferry.

We can’t tell from the photo but we hope the red dye didn’t stain his shirt — that would have totally ruined his tribute.
