I’m thinking about committing a crime… and they already know about it!

According to news reports, Chrystopher-Lee Schaeffer, 21, and a 16-year-old friend were found asleep under a dog blanket on the roof of a news agency in Ipswitch, Massachusetts.
Police were called to the news agency when the owners reported a possible break-in at approximately 2 a.m. When the cops got there, they found the guys asleep and surrounded by various magazines, drinks, food and dog snacks. They had apparently not broken into the news agency, but had taken the items from a storage shed loaded with store supplies.
The 16-year-old was sentenced to community service. Schaeffer pleaded guilty to one count of entering the premises with the intent of committing an offense and one count of illegally being on or the a premises. Schaeffer’s lawyer said he was a good kid and he had no idea why they thought it was a good idea to take the dog food.
Schaeffer was sentenced to perform 50 hours of community service.
So 13 years to the day after he was acquitted of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, the jury in the robbery/kidnapping case deliberated for 13 hours and came back with a guilty verdict for OJ. Now OJ might spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Do I think he should spend the rest of his life in prison? Of course. However, if it is the current 12 crimes that he was convicted of that we’re talking about…I have to reluctantly say no.
I don’t know if OJ is incredibly stupid or just obnoxiously arrogant. Maybe it’s both. He got away with a double murder, so why wouldn’t he think that it would be fine to gather up his thugs and go manhandle these sports junk dealers? He didn’t bank on them reporting it to the police I guess.
The thing is, I guess I just don’t think what he did this time is bad enough to warrant a life sentence. It wasn’t nice and it certainly was criminal, but if the judge (who btw seems to hate OJ) is fair about it, I really don’t think that he’s going to get life or anything like it.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see. I’m glad he didn’t get off scott free this time, but if the punishment fits these particular crimes, I think it’s just wishful thinking that he’ll be a very old man and still be in jail.
In Bonita Springs, Florida, a man was recently arrested for soliciting a prostitute. That’s not unusual, I guess.
The prostitute that he picked up was an undercover cop. Again, not that unusual.
The thing that sets Fausino Diaz Hernandez apart is that he offered to pay 2 cents for sex. 2 pennies. You’d have to wonder what he was expecting to get.
Anyway, even Hernandez realized at some point that 2 cents wasn’t enough, so reportedly also offered the woman cigarette lighters and a bike in exchange for some sexual favors. FAIL.
He was, of course, taken to jail.
In Madison, Wisconsin, thieves knocked down a fence and broke into a home through a window to steal a 300 pound safe.
The valuables stored inside the safe? It was grandma!
The ashes of Silvia Postell were inside the safe. Her husband Roy and other family members desperately want them back.
Roy had planned to have his ashes mixed with Silvia’s when he passes away and is offering a $1,000 reward in hopes of getting them back.
The robbery took place in broad daylight, yet no witnesses have come forward.
Come on people… Someone had to have seen something.
Looks like my stupid criminals category got wiped out with the database crash, but never fear – there are plenty of idiots out there living a life of crime.
Today the Arizona Daily Sun reported a robbery at an ice cream store by a couple of criminals who weren’t too swift.
First they tried to rob the store with a fake gun. The clerk noticed the gun was a toy and didn’t give up the cash, so one of them tried to reach into the cash drawer and just take the money anyway. That was a bad idea…
The clerk slammed the cash drawer shut on his hand and called the police.
After freeing his hand, the robber and robber #2 fled the store and left in a car driven by a third idiot. All three were later arrested and the car was seized.
