Idiot of the month (so far)
Three Simple rules for the perfect crime.
1. Take the money
2. Head to Mexico
3. Don't brag on Facebook
Oh Maxi Sopo, so close to a full house and a life time in the sun, but how little you must know about the power of social networking.
Maxi Sopo, a fugitive on the run has been caught out by the newly diagnosed status update obsession (In my head I'm a doctor), a disorder that convinces the writer to inform anyone and everyone anything and everything all the time. Even it seems that your a wanted con and you are "living in paradise" and "loving it". The terminal need to add friends, including one who is in cahoots with the Justice department, has flung him straight into the loving arms of Mexican prison.
He was caught after a quick simple friend search showed him standing infront of a BMW backdrop and sprouting such classic updates as "LIFE IS VERY SIMPLE REALLY!!!! BUT SOME OF. US HUMANS MAKE A MESS OF IT...REMEMBER AM JUST HERE TO HAVE FUN PARTEEEEEEE."
I know what you're thinking, what a way with words.
Wanted for financial fraud in Seattle, Mr Sopo went on the run, hiring a car and crossing the border like many a fugitive hath tried. It's a well known fact that the American justice system has been scanning social networking and video sites for years to hunt down people doing naughty things. Some say invasion of privacy, I say idiotic to post it online. The outcomes from this blatant snooping have been mixed but with the caliber of criminals getting lower and the need to blow ones own trumpet getting higher, never has it been this easier to catch wannabe Biggsys.
All that needs to be said is kudos to the idiotic criminals that make the lives of Police officers that little bit easier. Never change.
