Long weekend round-up

So I've been busy having nothing to do with crime for three days, how about you? I did poke around the internet a little for today's post, though, to see what other people are up to.

First, we have a fellow I'm sure psychologists would say has some kind of guilt complex, and therefore wants to be caught. How else do you explain a serial car burglar who tases himself and puts himself in handcuffs?

In Texas we'd probably be okay, but those crazy New Yorkers need signs to tell them when not to get hit by cars. Trouble starts, though, if those signs start telling people to Walk and Not Walk at the same time....

I hear a lot of excuses in court, a lot. But I've never heard anyone try the "No, it's okay, I'm Batman" defense. Wonder if it'll work.

Here's another "glad I live in Texas" story, because I know it wouldn't happen here: family escorted off their own property after squatters (in Texas: burglars) call the cops. I guess that changes the saying to, "My home is your castle."

And finally, something that reminds me of my kids. No, don't worry, they don't drive. They do, however, hide in very obvious places and giggle like mad because they think we can't see them.
