It’s been awhile since I sat down and put thought to words. In that light I have stumbled upon a subject that is near and dear to my heart, Stupid Criminals. The subject has endless possibilities, as the criminal element is exactly that. Some as we know, more or less than others. To kick off the topic, we are leaving the good old U.S. of A., for as we know our country does not hold the individual claim to fame.
ILLITERATE BRIT ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDER AFTER SPELLING ERROR
Jaqueline Patrick not only failed to proofread the note she forged after serving her husband Douglas a cocktail spiked with antifreeze, but she didn't manage to achieve her murderous mission either.
The fumbling 55-year old felon aroused the suspicion of medics and police after she produced a "good-bye cruel world" suicide note allegedly written by her sickened victim in which the word "dignity" was misspelled "dignerty".
In a subsequent interview a sharp detective asked Mrs. Patrick to spell the word for them, at which point it became obvious she was the author of her husband’s last testament.
That telltale error saw her ultimately jailed for up to 15 years and also put away her 21-year old daughter for her supporting role in the stupid crime.
The two criminal masterminds further implicated themselves when they neglected to delete several incriminating text messages discussing the plot to kill Douglas Patrick with a poisoned Christmas drink.
