Malachi Love-Robinson, the Florida man who spent much of his teenage years posing as a medical doctor, is again in trouble with the law.


According to police records obtained by CNN, 23-year-old Love-Robinson is now facing charges of grand theft and fraud related to allegations he stole from his employer.

From CNN:

According to a probable cause affidavit from the Delray Beach Police Department, Love-Robinson, a contracted employee for a shipping broker, is accused of stealing from his employer in early 2020 by rerouting payments from the business to his personal accounts, causing a total loss of $10,129.81.

According to the affidavit, Love-Robinson’s employer showed police screenshots of text conversations where Love-Robinson allegedly stated he “f***ed himself” and that he was “doing everything [he] can to make it right.”

“I don’t want to go to jail,” another text message said, according to the affidavit. Love-Robinson later told his employer he had refunded the money, but the employer told police no money was ever received, the affidavit said.

Love-Robinson was arrested and jailed in Palm Beach County, Florida last week on the charges, but has since been released on bond. Formerly known as “Dr. Love,” he was last behind bars in 2019 while serving a prison sentence for pretending to be a doctor and defrauding an elderly ‘patient’ out of $35,000.

When he was 17, Love-Robinson was caught walking around in a hospital in Florida wearing a doctor’s lab coat and reportedly checking patients. By the time he was 18, Love-Robinson went as far as opening his own clinic in Florida, where he was arrested in 2016 for practicing medicine without license.

He’s also been nabbed by cops in Florida and Virginia over the past few years on charges related to identity theft, obtaining money by false pretenses, and using false statements to obtain credit.

Every time a Karen or Kyle is caught racist-ing white commenters come here to specifically suggest they’re mentally-ill, an addict or broken and in need of counseling. Even some Black commenters try to say the reason for racism ‘must be craziness’.

Now, I’m not limber enough to bend backwards like the Matrix but I can ‘look for any reason but the obvious too’: This seems like there’s more going on here. Like, he’s obviously got Ingeniousness Turned Deviousness by Circumstance Syndrome. I mean, it’s clear this kid has ambition, some smarts, creativity and stick-to-itiveness. Imagine if he’d been born into a family of privilege where his parents sent him to specialty camps to expose and nurture his creativity then lessons to hone his skills. Or where at 9 years old, his Dad’s pal took him to work at his company and promised him a job someday. Or Granddad left him generational wealth where he could have backpacked around Europe at 17 to ‘find himself’. Even if racism had only briefly and minimally shaped his life and he’d been born middle-class and white, he’d have been put into Junior Achievement to start and run a business in high school. Or one of those kiddie investment clubs where success is rewarded by some local millionaire funding the kid’s real dollar moves. As the whites and fake saints would say,”I hope he gets counseling and the help he needs!”
