Facebook Fools – More Stupid Criminals

Facebook Idiot

Just when you think criminals couldn’t get any stupider, along comes Facebook to prove us wrong.

Coral Springs, Florida – It’s stupid enough to commit a crime that yields no financial reward, but contains an element of risk, right? But then, compound that stupidity by advertising it to the world, thus ensuring you will be caught. This guy obviously has an IQ that qualifies him for political office!

Meet future U.S. Senator, Steven Mulhall, 21, of Coral Springs, Florida. This intellectual giant decided to steal a nameplate off the door of a Judge’s courtroom door and then post it on his girlfriend’s Facebook page.

Mulhall posted the photograph of himself holding the stolen nameplate, which was pried from the door of Broward Circuit Judge Michael Orlando courtroom on Natalie Coma Toze Segura Facebook account, according to arrest records.

“The nameplate is like only $40, not that big of a crime, but what an idiot. He puts it on Facebook,” said Broward County Sheriff Al Lamberti. “Here he is flaunting it on Facebook. He violated the terms of his parole by stealing, from a judge he appeared before no less. He’s got multiple convictions for petty theft, so now this is a felony.”

Lamberti said deputies picked up Mulhall after verifying the suspect had appeared before judge Orlando. The judge’s nameplate was pried from the door around Feb. 23, according to the arrest report. A tip to Broward Crime Stoppers led authorities to Mulhall.

“The tipster gave us his address, name and the Facebook page,” Lamberti said.

Facebook – Idiots Welcome!

Cali, Colombia – Home of the Cali cartel, the infamous drug gang known for their ruthless and savage ways. You’d think criminals would be a little smarter down there, after all they’ve had a lot of practice right?

Well, in the neighborhood of Calima, north of the city of Cali, two morons decided to rob an internet cafe. Perhaps they should stick to businesses without internet access in the future.

Before drawing their weapons, they logged into their Facebook accounts to update their status, but forgot to log out! They rented two computers and browsed the internet before taking out their guns and robbing the place.

The cafe manager called the police, who arrived and discovered the Facebook account still open in the computer used by one of the idiots. From there it was easy to get his address and the cops were waiting when he got home. He’s now serving time in the local jail and his Facebook status has been updated from “single” to “in a….ah….how do we put this…..relationship”

Gresham, Oregon – A 14-year-old boy, whose name was withheld due to his age, critically injured another driver in a hit-and-run crash. If that wasn’t stupid enough, he went home and posted on his Facebook page “somehow the police haven’t found me yet”.

Oops! Oregon cops credit that status update with being able to locate and apprehend the 14-year-old.

Random, Brutal Attacks Are On The Rise

A Disturbing New Trend

Awareness of your surroundings, is probably the most important factor to avoid becoming the victim of an assault, robbery or any other street crime. A person who shows awareness and confidence isn’t an easy target and therefore most criminals will simply look for another victim.

However, there has been a troubling trend in the last year taking hold in cities across America, that may negate the benefits of awareness. Brazen assaults are taking place, involving groups of young men outnumbering and overwhelming their victims. These attacks are often taking place in broad daylight in busy areas with other people and witnesses nearby. The most disturbing aspect of these attacks? They are taking place for no reason other than for fun! Often times victims are not robbed, just beaten up.

Baltimore, Maryland – A recent example of this is a story involving a man fighting for his life in a Baltimore hospital. John Mason, a 32-year-old tattoo artist, was viciously attacked in downtown Baltimore last Friday afternoon, November 2nd. He sustained some serious head injuries and doctors have put him into a medically induced coma.

The attack took place at 1:30 in the afternoon. According to a witness, there were eight attackers and they didn’t appear to know the victim.

“Twice, he kept telling them he didn’t want to fight. He didn’t want to fight,” the witness said. “They didn’t care.”

“They didn’t know him at all. They was just looking for trouble,” he said.

He says it happened at the bus stop and one of the attackers kicked Mason more than a dozen times.

“At this point, it’s unclear what the motive was. We’re looking at a variety of possibilities.” said Anthony Guglielmi, Baltimore City Police spokesperson.

Police are looking through images from the many surveillance cameras located in the downtown area. This attack comes on the heals of the beating of a tourist earlier this year that was caught on video and got national attention.

There is no amount of awareness that can protect you from something like this. It’s time for Americans to seriously consider some form of personal protection. A small handgun is obviously the best option, especially when facing multiple attackers.

However, many people are uncomfortable with carrying a gun. An excellent alternative is a fogger pepper spray. This type of spray creates a fog barrier to prevent an attacker from getting close. It also works pretty well against multiple attackers.

Women In Beirut Stock Up On Pepper Spray, Stun Guns

The Crime Ridden Streets Of Beirut

Beirut, Lebanon – For years, Beirut has had a reputation as a dangerous place. The smoldering burned out cars, neighborhoods of dilapidated buildings, streets of rubble and Muslim terrorists have really put a damper on on the tourism industry.

Take all of those negatives and throw in the fact that the prevailing culture and religion permit, and perhaps even sanction violence against women and you have a recipe for disaster.

This helps to explain why women in Beirut have taken matters into their own hands. They’ve taken it upon themselves to be responsible for their own protection. Women are buying up self defense products like pepper spray and stun guns in record numbers.

Shop owners are starting to see personal protection devices like key-chain pepper sprays, 1 million volt stun guns disguised as cell phones fly off the shelves.

The security situation is already less than sub par in the country and recently, reports of increased harassment of women has many females on edge and living in fear.

One shop owner, who prefers to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals from criminals, says that between pepper spray and stun guns he is currently selling about 30 defensive weapons for women per week; although, he adds, “it is usually guys buying them for their girlfriends or wives.”

Many women have been attacked in broad daylight and in full view of witnesses. Women who have purchased personal protection devices say they feel empowered and no longer live in constant fear when walking to the local market or running errands.

Self defense classes have also been seeing record attendance in recent months.

This story illustrates why it’s important for people, especially women, to take control of their own self defense. Even in a law-abiding country like the U.S. the Police can’t be everywhere and protect everyone. So it’s important for people to realize that they need to have a plan when confronted with a threat. That plan should include efforts at prevention like awareness and avoidance. However a good plan should also include efforts at self protection like martial arts training, pepper spray, a good handgun or some other form of protection.

More Stupid Criminals

Father and Son Morons

British Colombia, Canada – Jesse Blue West and his son Dustin Moir, were arrested for murder. These geniuses spoke openly in the back of a police van about the murder and who should take the fall while knowing they were being taped.

“Watch what you’re saying, we’re being recorded,” said West, as they continued to discuss the crime in detail!. The case is being tried as we speak, but it doesn’t look good for these two buffoons.

No Getaway Car? Ask Your Victim To Call You A Cab

Staten Island, New York – Ronald Baker, 19, and an accomplice knocked on the door of an elderly couple and forced their way in when they opened the door. The criminals brandished a gun, and Baker forced the couple to the ground, and did the same to their daughter when she came downstairs.

The suspects ransacked the house, taking four watches, jewelry, a knife and an undisclosed amount of cash, whose total value exceeded $15,00. Before leaving, the suspects got the name of a cab company from the victims and called for a car to pick them up.

The victims had been shut in a closet “secured by a chair” but they managed to get out. They called police, who then contacted the cab company.

The Police were waiting for Baker at his destination and they caught him after a brief chase. Baker was charged with burglary and robbery, and his accomplice was caught later.

Zachary Pace

Pinson Alabama – 24-year-old Zackary Pace left Jack’s Restaurant after his shift ended, only to return minutes later in a pathetic attempt to rob the place. After finishing his shift he returned almost immediately armed with a gun, a mask on his face and wearing the same clothes he had on when he left! Apparently he didn’t fool any of his co workers.

His attempt at disguising his voice was apparently so bad that his co-workers told him to stop joking. Pace got away with an undisclosed amount of money, but his stupidity doesn’t end here. He showed up to work the next day as if nothing happened, just as police were conducting interviews about the robbery. He was arrested and charged with first degree robbery.

Spraytech – The Latest Pepper Spray Phone Case

Spraytech iPhone Case

Phone cases come in a multitude of shapes, sizes, designs and colors. They also come in many different models for self defense. Like the iPhone Knucklecase, the SmartGuard, and the Yellow Jacket.

Well, the newest cell phone case is called the Spraytech. Unlike the SmartGuard case, which acts as a holder for a specially made pepper spray canister, this one actually dispenses pepper spray. The pepper spray is incorporated into the back side of the case and is less bulky than other pepper spray cases. The nice thing about the Spraytech is that it looks just like any other iPhone case.

Turn Your iPhone Into A Self Defense Weapon

It comes with one pepper spray cartridge, but refills are available for purchase. The Spraytech also comes with a test cartridge included. Test cartridges are filled with compressed water and are great to practice with.

There are multiple safety mechanisms to prevent accidental firing. As of this writing, they are available for iPhone 4 and 4s but other models are coming soon.

Because iPhones seem to be a popular target with thieves, the Spraytech seems like a great idea. Any personal protection device is only effective if it can be deployed quickly, at a moments notice. Since many people carry their phones in their hand while walking, the Spraytech can be deployed before the criminal has a chance to react.
