There is a reason why people become criminals and for most the reason is simple they’re not very smart. Donâ€™t believe me take the story in Thursdayâ€™s paper about burglars breaking into pop machines. Rational people wouldnâ€™t think pocket change is worth committing a felony and the chance to spend five years in federal prison. Not to mention the physical effort and tools necessary to break into an iron box that dispenses pop and on its best week could hold twenty dollars in change. I mean wouldnâ€™t you think a little larger if you were going to bet five years of your life on the spoils of your crime. Even if they did hit the jackpot and scored several hundred dollars in change and didnâ€™t get a hernia hauling it away where you going to cash it in, laundry money for the next six months? I said they were not very smart not lazy, there are a whole lot of legal ways to earn twenty dollars with a lot less effort and planning. The sad part though they didnâ€™t get much money for their crime they did cause thousands of damages to the machines. These Dickinson criminals are typical of the criminals who I have encountered working at a newspaper over the years. The funny thing is they always plead not guilty no matter how strong the evidence. They usually seem genuinely sorry, not for the crime just sorry they got caught. I guess there is a dumbest criminal show on television, which I am sure there are plenty of real life examples like the latest Dickinson bunglers to keep the series running as long as they wish.
