If They Were Smart, They Wouldn't Be Crooks...

Joseph in IL sends in a story of a stupid *and* unlucky criminal. Let's all take a moment to laugh at him, shall we?

Suspected burglar falls through ceiling, lands near police
Authorities say a man's plans to break into a Houston store fell through, after he crashed through the ceiling and landed in front of police.

Houston police say the man climbed a tree and onto the roof of a Family Dollar store early Sunday morning, then managed to break a hole in the roof and enter the building.
Again, I find myself trying to understand this person's "thinking". Why on earth would you think it's a *good* idea to break into a building via the roof? Are you unaware of gravity? What, precisely, was the plan *after* gaining entrance? Magically float down to the ground?

I guess it's a good thing that these criminals are so dumb. I'd hate to face intelligent criminals, because they might try to gain unauthorized access to our credit cards and bank statements. I guess it's better they hatch ill-conceived plots that involved the willing suspension of gravity rather than shoving a gun in someone's face.

You know, maybe we're better off with Guido the Amazing Flying Criminal...

That is all.
