I’m sure you've heard the saying, “Criminals don’t have to be geniuses.” And that’s true. But if they’re too dumb...they get caught.
The other day I was driving Ariel to her violin lesson (Luke had the van and Ariel doesn’t know how to drive a stick-shift). We turned left at an intersection next to a private school. While waiting to make my turn, I noticed that a house across the street from the school had an EPB (electric and cable company) truck and a police car in the driveway. Hmmm. That’s odd.
I put it out of my mind and went to violin lessons. After the lessons, we retraced our route home. As we neared the intersection, I noticed a policeman was directing the traffic. Even odder...
I looked over at the house. Now a police car was pulled diagonally across the lawn. In the driveway was a big vehicle. Plastered on the side was the logo: Anti-meth enforcement. Right. It was a meth house.
A meth house across the street from a school—how stupid is that? Doesn’t that up the felony status and jail time? Hello!? Couldn’t they find a “safer” place?
And even stupider still, the meth house was only two doors down from the house where the local police officer of the K-9 unit lives—his dog lives with him! Can you say “uber-stupid?” One walk past that meth house and the dog would have had a conniption.
Nope, criminal don’t have to be geniuses. But it sure helps us if they’re idiots.
