Dumb and Dumber Awards 2009

For the Defense Dumb and Dumber Awards for 2009

This is a new feature of my blog. All facts are taken from public records. Some criminal acts are not based on any intelligent assessment of risk. The Dumb and Dumber Awards seeks to honor those who crimes will also cause a chuckle. We hope.

Third Dumbest Criminal Act for 2009

Defendant walking down the street sees a bum laying on the sidewalk. As he approaches the bum asks to buy some dope. Defendant offers a $10 rock of meth. Bum agrees and gets out his 10 bucks. Defendant grabs the $10 and runs. Whoops the bum is a cop playing buyer in a buy bust operation. After a two block chase police converge on hapless defendant

Second Dumbest Criminal Act for 2009

Defendant sees a bike leaning against a wall. Thinking he can take it and cash it in for drugs he hops on and rides away. Only problem: the bike belongs to a cop in the middle of a bust. When he looks up and sees defendant pedaling away he calls for help. Duh.

Dumbest Criminal Act of 2009

Defendant after a night of holiday partying joins a crowd of people torching discarded Christmas trees. When its his turn to torch he spots a tree leaning against a light pole and torches it. He is immediately surrounded by police. He wonders why until he notices that the tree was discarded in front of a police station. Moral: if your going to pull a prank don't do it in plain view of the police.
