How stupid can you get? Some family stole a bunch of stuff and boasted about it on national TV, then got busted. Jesus. It reminds me of the time my sister's credit card number was stolen online - they caught the thief because he had his ill-gotten gains shipped directly to his house.

When I worked in retail, we used to see shoplifters all the time. When I first started the job, I asked my boss how to spot them. "It's easy," he said. "They act in a suspicious manner." And they do! I guess if you're lazy and stupid and venial enough to think thievery is preferable to an actual job, it doesn't occur to you to try to act normal when trying to get away with it.
