The stupid. It burns!

Most of the time when I tell someone they’re stupid I don’t mean it literally, but rather that they’re acting in a stupid manner. That’s not the case with this would-be robber. He’s definitely literally stupid:

18-year-old Ruben Zarate, entered a muffler shop in the 2600 block of North Laramie Avenue yesterday and declared a robbery. He allegedly waved a gun around and demanded money, according to police.

When he was told the money was in a safe and that the manager who knew how to open it was not there, the suspect had a brilliant idea; at least he thought it was brilliant.

He gave the shop employees his cell phone number and asked them to call him when the manager arrived so he could open the safe for him.

He left and the employees opted to call 911. Authorities stationed plain clothes officers in the shop and called the would-be robber back.

Zarate, showed up again, and waved his gun around again, but this time was shot in the leg by an officer.

That’s just amazing. On the plus side you can at least say that he’s a very trusting fellow.

  1. I read somewhere that the average criminal is less intelligent, and less attractive, than the average non-criminal.  Makes sense- but who is responsible?  That’s the $64,000 question…

    It’s obviously true—just look at pictures of politicians.

  3. POLICE ALWAYS GOT A WAY COVER THINGS UP N MAKE PERSON LOOK SOMETHING THAT THERE NOT.YOU REALLY KNOW YOUR FACTS BEFORE YOU TALK.
