Man accused of trying to steal games during charity event
This little story made me smile and wonder why we don't have a Darwin Awards forum or thread.



Fifty uniformed police officers didn't stop a man from trying to steal video games and accessories from a Walmart in Maryland.

You have to admit....It was a great demonstration of stupidity for the children to witness, first hand.

I'm sure it helped the cops get their message across. Lolz

It probably would have been easier just to carry the items and run out the door fast. The sad reality is that he'll get incarcerated and the cost of jailing him will be much more than the video games are worth.

Since he's obviously stupid, is it any wonder why he can't get an honest job? His parents and teachers should explain how they let him fail so miserably.

Just an observation but the linked article contains a photo and in that photo his left ear is partly yellow. Is that the egg on his face that he didn't quite manage to completely remove before being photographed?

A very good point. I saw a statistic that stated it "costs" $30,000 a year to keep someone in jail. Crime apparently does pay, the prison, much dollars.

Methinks it's a trick of the light. Pretty crappy photo.

But the real point is that crime is crime. Get real in your assessments of the dirty deed and what his punishment will be. He, of course, will not go to prison--maybe a few days in jail, but not prison--for what he did.
(I assume that the widespread downloadding of pirated music tends to dim the concept in some individuals of what is worthy of being a crime or not.)

I do realise that. When you remove something from a shop it is theft, when you download something from the internet it is not. I download movies all the time, never stole from a shop though. Well, I did once when I was 10. I got caught the 1st time I tried it, learnt my lesson and moved on. I stole a snickers.
