SIDEBARLaughs

They say "Crime doesn't pay" which is true, but you have to wonder why these inept would-be criminals even tried!

Like the man attempting to hold-up a bank and wrote the stick-up note on the back of HIS OWN deposit slip.

Or how about the couple on a nationally-syndicated court show that questioned the victim in the courtroom: : 
"Well, If you knew we were liars and thieves, why did you trust us with your property?"

Or the guy went into the bank, handed a teller a stickup note, only to be told to wait for the next available teller, which he did patiently-stocking mask and all-until the police called his number and let him away in handcuffs.

Or the color-blind counterfeiter who made BOTH sides of the bogus bills the same color?

and our personal favorite...the man who broke free from police and led them on a 30 block chase through the city streets.  When the suspect came to a dead-end he scaled the tall fence...only to find he had just climbed the fence INTO the County Jail!
