The PJ Tatler

Wherin we once again discover some criminals have the brains of a gnat...

I have in my about 15 year career as a journalist seen some genuinely stupid criminals. In fact, I have yet to see a smart one. My favorite is the guy who when pulled over for a broken tail light, and when asked by the cop if he knew why he was being pulled over said “No, but I bet it’s about the meth lab in the trunk.”
The cop’s response was, and I quote, “No, but now that you mention it…”

This genius takes the cake however…

Authorities are crediting clues found in the tattoos on the chest of a young California gang member with cracking the case of a 2004 liquor store killing that had once stumped investigators, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s homicide investigator Kevin Lloyd was looking through pictures of tattooed gang members in 2008 when he noticed what appeared to be the murder scene inked across gangster Anthony Garcia’s chest, according to the newspaper.

Brilliant…
