    So sad, so stupid - I'd love to think that he'll see his own picture on the news and really get a scare.

    You'd think you would do something to disconnect the camera first, eh?

    He even had the presence of mind to smile for the camera. Its just these stupid mistakes that get people caught. Just makes life easier for the police. The big question, why he didn't finish the job of taking the camera? :eek:

    ...Ok, I'm done laughing now. What a numbskull. Did it ever occur to him that this might happen? Sheesh, 4 million years of human evolution down the drain...

    Well, perhaps a non-camera-stealing criminal would spray the lens with paint or knock it down. Since he's reselling the ill-gotten gain, he needs to be careful not to do any damage to them.

    He can use the picture for marketing purposes: "See how good the picture quality is? Especially when you get up real close. Not too bad, eh?"

    I (heart) idiots. :)

    LOL that is the very next thread I visited. Maybe you should get into the fortune telling industry.
