We have a real criminal training crisis in this country. Story after story appears about dumb criminals getting caught for dumb crap. Nobody’s pulling exciting ‘Die Hard’-level crimes anymore. We obviously need a multipronged, government sponsored (this guy for Crime Training Czar!) effort to teach these unfortunates how to be successful in their chosen field. And with expensive, overcrowded prisons, we need to ensure they don’t go to jail.
Do it for the children!
Police in Connecticut say even they were surprised by the actions of these criminals: two would-be robbers called a bank ahead of time to get the money ready and were arrested at the scene.
Fairfield police say they arrested 27-year-old Albert Bailey and an unidentified 16-year-old boy on robbery and threatening charges Tuesday afternoon at the People’s United Bank branch on Stratfield Road.
Sgt. James Perez says the two Bridgeport residents called the bank and told a worker to get a bag of money ready. Perez says they showed up at the bank 10 minutes later, but police had been notified and arrested the suspects in the parking lot.
Perez told the Connecticut Post he classifies the suspects as “not too bright.”
