SHREVEPORT, La. â€” A masked gunman walked into a gas station and demanded money, apparently not noticing that the line at the counter included a uniformed police officer.
L.J. Scott, a member of the Police Department’s armed robbery task force, told the would-be robber to put his own hands up.
It’s criminals like that who were the basis of one of my favorite comedy-type books: America’s Dumbest Criminals. After all, criminals done in by their own stupidity just never get old… :-)
