You would think that if a person took the time to plan and carry out a criminal act that they would do everything possible not to get caught. Well, that is not always the case. Let me tell you a few stories about criminally social individuals who cannot help themselves from over-sharing. There is a Nebraska woman who shared in a big way. After stealing a car full of drugs and robbing a bank, she posted a YouTube video detailing the entire incident and her reasons behind it. She made a point to hold up the drugs and car keys for her audience. She also fanned the bank’s money and gave the exact dollar amount, for those who wanted to know how much she took. There was only one phrase repeating in my head as I watched the video. “Really? How stupid can you be? Dumbass.” With gas prices as high as they have been in recent years, siphoning fuel from others has become more common but would you siphon gas from a police car? A man in Kentucky didn’t mind. As a matter of fact, he thought it was so funny that he snapped a photo of his crime and posted it on Facebook. He’s one siphoning hose away from no brain cells. Then there is the classic computer thief. You know, the one who steals a laptop and logs onto social media sites to tell the world what he has done. Even better, a woman in Virginia came home to a seemingly normal house only to see that her laptop was open and the thief’s Facebook page was on the screen. The lesson here is to always log out of your account before raiding the rest of the house. The stories are endless and I could tell you incident after incident, but I think you get the point. Every day there is something new on social media that makes me question our existence. How has man survived this long? I think with each generation, we lose brain cells or something. It just leaves me wondering what made these people do these things? What it their mind told them that these crimes were okay? Next time you see a “dumb criminal”, don’t forget to snap a picture or a video so that the over sharing may go
