SOMETIMES CRIME REALLY DOESN’T PAY AND CAN BE FUNNY.

I had promised myself that no matter what the story today, my first post of the new year was NOT gonna be about the usual crime thing. There’s going to be more then enough in the year ahead, as there is every year.  So no blood and mayhem to start happy to say.  However, there are the goofy things crime related that just can not be resisted.

On page three of the Telegraph this morning, the wife pointed out an article that got her giggling.  The Telegraph as usual doesn’t have a link to the story.
And btw, I tried looking it up in Darwin Awards and couldn’t find it although I know it’s there.  So I went to the papers link for “Science Dept” which they do list, but still no link to this.  Typical Telegraph.  So, you’ll just have to take my word for it, I didn’t make this up.


TWO BELLGIAN BANK ROBBERS HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE DARWIN AWARD AFTER KILLING THEMSELVES WHILE TRYING TO BLAST THROUGH A CASH MACHINE.

The pair used so much dynamite that they destroyed the entire bank building - and themselves with it.

Well I thought that was pretty funny and soon found myself on this site.

Where I discovered ...

Big Macs, spoons and prison break-ins! It’s the top 10 stupid criminals
By Chris Wilson

Two stories caught our eye today, both involving criminals who are clearly one sandwich short of a picnic.

First, this tale of gun-toting robbers who held up a McDonald’s in Stockholm only to get away with just four Big Macs.

Then there was the Welsh burglar who wasn’t flattered by the mug shot police circulated of him following a break-in that he sent an ‘improved’ pic to them and they duly tracked him down.

These two incidents bring to mind a raft of other ‘stupid criminal’ stories, here are some of the best.

1. Earlier this month Andrew Burwitz from Appleton, Wisconsin was charged with reckless endangerment and endangering safety by reckless use of a firearm after attempting a drive-by shooting at the home of his ex-girlfriend’s family. Only he forgot to wind down the window of his car first. The idiot.

A break-in suspect was arrested after falling through the ceiling of a London sandwich shop. The robber, who must have been really hungry, was found by police after the alarm went off and was charged with two counts of breaking and entering as he fell through the roof of a neighbouring shop too.

Talking of falling through roofs, this character manages to do it twice too, in rather spectacular fashion.

Embedding was blocked on the You Tube connection but if you click on it there is a link to You Tube to watch the video.

Do watch it its hilarious!

Enjoy!

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
