Stupid Criminal Stories #17June 17th, 2011
A man named Rodney Knight broke in to the home of Washington Post journalist Marc Fisher and stole two laptops, $400 in cash, and a winter coat. That alone does not qualify him for the coveted Chad’s News “stupid criminal” tag. What does qualify him is that, using one of the stolen laptops, he posted a picture of himself (with the coat and cash) on the Facebook page of Fisher’s son. Knight has been sentenced to 44 months in jail for the burglary and an unrelated charge of carrying a pistol without a license.
