Friday Funnies...

Joseph in IL sends in this video capture of the world's dumbest car thief...

The worst getaway ever
Just watch this video of a driver attempting a hit-and-run in Chicago. You've gotta watch the whole thing. Don't give up too early, because you will miss … well … just watch.

We pick up the scene just after the driver of the black SUV allegedly hit the white cab.
No, you've really got to see this imbecile:



Let's see. First he hits the white Camry cab. Then he hits the white Crown Vic cab. Backs into the red sports car. Hits the white Camry cab again, and then plows into the Caddy SUV, hard enough to rip off his front bumper. Four vehicles struck, two of which were occupied at the time - that's four counts of malicious destruction of property and at least two counts of assault with a deadly weapon (the vehicle) on top of grand theft auto.

And it's all caught on video, so this guy's going to do some serious time when they catch him...

That is all.

In Chicago? They'll probably appoint him to manage the taxi license department.

"And it's all caught on video, so this guy's going to do some serious time when they catch him"

"in Chicago."

These two lines seem contradictory.

I see one problem with your assessment (beyond the "Chicago" one others already mentioned): The cab driver came at him with a weapon, probably after making some threatening statements. Even then, he didn't start running into other vehicles until the cabbie made a pretty good effort at breaking his window. Heck, that's enough to get the cabbie legally shot (or run over) in some states!

IOW, "hit and run"? Yeah, maybe. But the cabbie is the one who attempted assault with a deadly weapon. The guy in the black SUV gets to claim "I was afraid for my life, your Honor!"

There's is a big difference between "capturing on video" and "capturing the individual responsible".

Jake and Ed both bring up a good points...

Stolen car and the driver was arrested a little while later after hitting a tree.

The thief did quite well, considering it was probably his first time driving. Inner city 'youths' tend to not learn how to drive. If you drop out of school early, or can't pass the written safety tests, no Drivers Ed. Welfare hasn't quite trickled down to free cars yet.
