Common sense is apparently hard for some criminals. Take for example, 22-year-old Derrick Mosley, who reportedly attempted to rob an Oregon gun shop on Thursday armed with a baseball bat.
According to various news reports, Mosley strolled into Discount Gun Sales in Beaverton, Ore., with his baseball bat and criminal intent. He reportedly smashed a display case and attempted to steal a firearm.
The manager of the gun shop drew his own firearm which, unlike the one Mosley attempted to steal, was loaded. The manager trained his gun on Mosley and ordered him to drop the bat, the unloaded gun he was trying to steal and the 9-inch knife he was carrying. The first smart thing the crook did that day was comply with those commands.
The gun shop manager was still holding Mosley at gunpoint when the sheriff’s department arrived. The would-be robber was arrested and charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree theft, unlawful possession of a firearm and second-degree criminal mischief. His bail was set at $250,000, KATU reports.
Additionally, Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell also found Mosley guilty of “the mental crime of thinking a bat would be an effective tool for robbing a store full of guys with guns.”
Brought a bat & knife to rob a gun store. Didn't really think that one through did ya...dumb-@ss? Lemme guess...next stop was going to be: Rob the doughnut shop next door to the police station? Was that before or after peeing on the electric fence?

The Cop pushed his "Panic Button" on his radio and within a few moments half the Deputies in the county as well as 8 Cottonwood city cops surrounded him...

Here is the song I danced with my son at his wedding. The Mother/son dance. I cried.


Yeah, I cry pretty easily.

Turkish officials clear bird of spying for Israel
From Associated Press
July 26, 2013 11:08 AM EST
ISTANBUL (AP) — A bird of prey found in a Turkish village has been cleared of local suspicion it was aiding Israeli spies.

The private Dogan news agency reported Friday that villagers in a rural town in central Turkey found the kestrel this week and delivered it to local authorities after discovering a leg band marked "24311 Tel Avivunia Israel." Such bands are often used to track bird migrations.

Authorities confirmed in a statement that they released the bird into the wild Thursday after x-rays performed at a veterinary hospital found that "there was no other device" attached to the bird aside from the leg band.

Dogan, which published a copy of the x-ray record, says medical staff labeled it "Israeli Spy." It was not immediately clear whether the label was tongue-in-cheek.
