This book does show just how dumb a crook can be. But if you look hard enough you can find stories of the police being just as dumb. Thank you
If you like stories about dumb criminals then Professor Birdsong’s 147 Dumbest Criminal Stories: Florida is the book for you. Some of the stories were funny and I agree with another reviewer that it wasn't just criminals that were dumb. The book was a worthwhile read for half hour or so.
Even funnier because people, ie, criminals, can be so dumb! After laughing myself silly, I shared several of these tales with family and friends.
