CanUSA, land of idiot crooks

Yes, once again proving that stupidity and crime don't mix, we have this bozo from Ottawa.

While robbing a convenience store at knifepoint, he tripped and fell ON HIS OWN KNIFE, and is currently in critical condition.

Here's the story.

Thank you, Alison!

Scenarios like this are the main reason I decided not to turn to a life of crime. They would have released my name, I just know it!

seppuku is the only resolution for such a bungle.

This would happen to me.

Yes, but can he sue the store for the trippy thing he hit on the way out???

CanUSA is not the only place for stupid crooks. About a year or two ago here in Australia a home invader nearly decapitated himself on shards of window he had broken to enter a house, and subsequently bled to death at the scene.

I'll answer that. The laws in an awful lot of (probably most) states have changed to disallow civil liability lawsuits in cases where the plaintiff was committing a felony at the time.

Those "burglar fell through the skylight and successfully sued" stories were quite true, I've seen a couple dozen.

Legally speaking, in that regard it's gotten pretty tough out there for felons.

So no, in most states the lawsuit would be a non-starter.

I don't know why I just made such a big deal about that, but now it's in your brain cells so you're stuck with it.

(Grumpy: "Ha ha, no it's not! "

Yup, idiots are everywhere. This one sounds like an excellent nominee for the Darwin Awards.

Only an Honorable Mention for the Darwin Awards, sad to say, since he failed to kill or sterilize himself, despite a valiant effort. At least he wandered some way from the store and didn't bleed all over the scene of the crime like the thoughtless crim in Sue Denyhm's story.
