"Thief steals woman's phone — then posts picture of himself smoking weed to HER Facebook page."

"The thief didn't know that her cell phone was linked to her Facebook account and set to automatically post pics."

There's no telling what your devices will do. It's why I do my damndest to keep my identity from the likes of Google.

To the thief's credit, he seems to keep his nasal hair under control.

Will the President tell us that if he had a son, he would look like this? A baby Choom?

Love those dumb criminal stories.

When it comes to TV, I do have a weakness for the dumb criminal shows. A couple years ago I got my truck robbed, since - I often leave it unlocked. Among other things, the thief took my GPS unit, which the cops found on him as he walked in the neighborhood. Of course it had my address programmed in for "Home". I got my stuff back 20 minutes after he stole it.

Another time I had some kids break into my house. The only house on the street with 6 dogs. Again the cops were there withing minutes before they could even take anything, and they were all caught running from the house. One left a nice Apple Ipod Touch behind in the yard. I still have it. I found it really thoughtful for a criminal to leave me a gift. You don't get that enough these days.

Extending the long line of stupid regarding the operation of cell phones which dates back at least to the murder of Michael Jordon's father, James R. Jordan. Here is how Wikipedia describes it:

While returning from a funeral, Jordan pulled into a rest stop near the intersection of Interstate 95 and State Road 74 just south of Lumberton, North Carolina to take a nap. Daniel Green and Larry Martin Demery spotted the car, a red Lexus SC400 coupe with the North Carolina License plate that read "UNC0023", Michael had recently purchased for him. Green and Demery shot Jordan to death while he slept in his car and then stole the vehicle. His body was found on August 3 in a swamp in Bennettsville, South Carolina, and was not positively identified until August 13. Michael Jordan retired shortly after, in part due to the loss of his father, with whom he shared a close relationship.

Green and Demery made several calls from Jordan's cell phone and as a result were immediately captured. They had taken other items from the car including two NBA championship rings given to Jordan, Sr. by his son. Demery was wearing a Michael Jordan T-shirt at the time of his arrest. Demery said that they had planned only to tie up their victim and that Green pulled the trigger for no reason. Both were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment for this and other violent crimes. James Jordan was cremated and buried at Rockfish AME Church in Teachey, North Carolina on August 15, 1993.

If he gets caught, Mommy and Daddy will bail him out within a day or two, and ... oh wait, I mean Mommy will bail him out. There's no Daddy.

I love these kind of things. It's always the same kind of stupid pictures. It almost always lives up to every stereotype - the black kid, the hotel employee, etc.

My favorite was a guy who (IIRC) lost his phone and it ended up in some little town in Mexico where they were having a festival. A redditor recognized it as a neighboring town from the pics and the guy got his phone back.

I didn't even need to ask what the thief's genre was.

...and now we're going to pay for his health care as well.

SOJO said...

@madashell :

No, I bet he already has his healthcare taken care of. It's the people that don't qualify for benefits because they work a crap job or even an okay job, but one that doesn't pay enough to afford healthcare, that will finally get access to it - and they deserve it.

Not that Obamacare is the best way to make it available, it's not. It's probably the most expensive way.

If she had location services turned on, the photos have embedded geotags. Presumably choomboy was at home or maybe a friend's. easier to zero in.
