Dave Moreland's Bozo Criminal of the Day - The world famous daily report on dumb crimes

Bozo criminal for today comes from the International File in London, England. Bozo Kenneth Curtis made a couple of crucial errors in his attempt to steal some cash. First, his target for mugging was the British Justice Minister, who had her own personal bodyguard with her. When our bozo tried to grab her purse, her bodyguard immediately gave chase. Thinking the best plan was to get out of there as quickly as possible, our bozo jumped on a bus. That was his second big mistake. The bus was full of police officers who where on an exercise to ensure safer neighborhoods. This neighborhood just got safer. He’s under arrest.

Bozo criminal for today comes from West Palm Beach, Florida, where bozo Frank Sampson was released from county jail after being locked up on a misdemeanor trespassing charge. And it was when he was released that his troubles really began. He immediately ran out to the court parking lot and, apparently wanting to get away from there as quickly as possible, tried to carjack a vehicle by forcing the driver out of the car. It was only once inside that he discovered it was a manual transmission and, you guessed it, he couldn’t drive stick. He was still trying to get it into gear when several officers arrived and escorted him back to jail.
