FILE - In this Wednesday, April 9, 2014 file photo, detained Somali women sit inside a makeshift cell before being fingerprinted and screened at the Kasarani sports stadium, Nairobi, Kenya. Kenya deported 91 more Somali nationals to Mogadishu on Thursday, April 17, 2014, the second wave of forced deportations that UNHCR warned could be endangering Somalis in need of protection from militants. But it is because of the steady drumbeat of terror attacks blamed on al-Shabab and its sympathizers that Kenya is now carrying out a massive security operation that threatens to open the country’s ethnic fault lines. Police say they are not targeting Somalis but instead are hunting terrorism suspects and illegal aliens. But rights groups say Somalis are bearing the brunt of police actions, including monetary shakedowns and physical and sexual abuses. Most Kenyans applaud the operation. (AP Photo/Khalil Senosi, File)

FILE - This Feb. 9, 2013 file surveillance photo provided by the FBI shows 73-year-old Walter Unbehaun, an ex-convict from Rock Hill., S.C., during a bank robbery in Niles, Ill. Unbehaun allegedly told investigators he intended to get caught so he could live his final years behind bars. On Thursday, April 17, 2014, Unbehaun is scheduled to be sentenced in Chicago. In 50 years, he has spent just six out from behind bars. His case highlights a wider societal dilemma about what to do with an increasingly elderly ex-cons, many of whom spent so much of their lives inside prison that they, like Unbehaun, can't cope with life on the outside.
