Crooks are stupid Part 2

 It's amazing (and entertaining) to see just how dumb people can be after doing something illegal. Recently CBS News had a spotlight on several dumb crooks. Here is part 2 of the "Winners" ;

1) Bank robber calls ahead
In March 2010, 27-year-old Albert Bailey of Bridgeport, Connecticut and a 16-year-old accomplice attempted to streamline a bank robbery by calling ahead.That's right. This brilliant criminal placed a call to a branch of the People's Bank in Fairfield, Connecticut, requesting that $100,000 in large bills be gathered in preparation for his arrival. Rather than doing that, the employee hung up and immediately called 911. Good thing the robber tipped him off. Credit: Fairfield Police Department

2) Man carjacks in jail parking lot

In March 2008, 23-year-old Frank Singleton had just been released from Palm Beach County Jail on a misdemeanor trespassing charge, when he decided to carjack a woman in the prison parking lot. As a result, he went from getting out of jail to being thrown back in for six years. Credit: Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office


3)  Robber steals money, leaves ID
In June 2013, a 26-year-old man, named Zachary Tentoni, snatched a Boston woman's wallet as she walked near Harbor Middle School in Dorchester, Massachusetts. In the process, he successfully got away with her ID and $40. He, however, dropped his birth certificate and a note from his mother in the scuffle at the scene, making it pretty easy for Boston authorities to track him down.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
