Tales of Criminal Stupidity
Criminal masterminds they ain't
Criminals have always been among us. Ever since there has been something to steal, or a person to defraud, there has been someone who just can't resist doing it. And there have been people who have made a successful career out of thievery and extortion: William 'Deacon' Brodie, Jesse James, Jonathan Wild, Al Capone, Bernie Madoff to name but a few.
But then there are the people in Crap Crimes. Banged up inside the covers of this book is a collection of the most incompetent, lazy, negligent and downright stupid felons history has encountered. Like the teenager robber who tried to hold up a liquor store and showed his ID when challenged about his age or the Dallas man who tried to cash a fake cheque for $360 billion. As Hunter S Thompson once wrote: 'In a world of thieves, the only final sin is stupidity.' Crap Crimes is the book of 'final sin'.
