A new low for stupidity

April 4th, 2009 at 1:00 pm by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

Police in Maine, USA, say seven teens and young adults have been arrested after a video was posted on YouTube that showed them setting off Molotov cocktails inside a vacated building and then rolled credits naming those involved. …

Police say the video, which has since been taken off the video-sharing website, showed the faces of the suspects as well as text naming those pictured. Each is charged with arson and burglary.

They should get extra jail time just for the stupidity.

    Then there was the woman who was locked up inside her car because the electronic controls had jammed. She rang the Police for help to get out.
    The operator said Pull up the little button by the window…OK done that….Operator lift the handle on the door and push…Thanks the doors opening.

    …and we wonder why in some species, parents eat their young.

    But more to the point, do we really want to give clever criminals who are by implication harder to catch, relatively shorter sentences?
