They usually get in trouble for what they do and it makes headlines in the news. When that happens, we find the best of the best and bring you a little something we like to call, ‘People Are Dumb’.

This is a strange story out of Texas. Two crooks were getting away with a big screen TV they stole on a motorcycle. There were many pictures and may videos of this as well. Home surveillance shows the motorcycle pull up to the home. The thieves head to the back patio, look around, then they rip a TV out of a cabinet. Every step of this robbery was caught on video. You see them get back on their bikes with the TV tow, here they were sighted all over Brazoria County, Brazoria county deputies say they followed the thieves but lost them.  People in Brazoria county reported seeing them all over the area.

A St. Pete man tried to carjack undercover cop, police say. A Tampa, Florida man Donald Steven Dugray, 20, was running from the police tried to carjack a vehicle. Inside the car, he was trying to carjack was an undercover cop. Gulfport police tried to stop him on his bicycle that night after he ran a light. He took off and crashed into a sergeant’s cruiser. Dugray hit the ground, a loaded gun fell out of his waistband. He picked up the gun and ran away from police, then tossed the gun onto the roof of a nearby diner. Officers later recovered it, which had five rounds in it. Dugray was running from police, an undercover officer who was moving into the area to help. As the officer pulled up, Dugray grabbed the guy and said: “Get out of your car I need it.” The officer hit Dugray with the door and pulled his gun on him. Other officers then caught up to Dugray and took him into custody. In addition to attempted carjacking, Dugray was arrested on charges of carrying a concealed firearm, resisting arrest, fleeing police and tampering with evidence.

What do you do when you can’t keep up at work? Let’s ask Jason De La Cruz a United States Postal Worker. He rented a storage unit to put all the mail that he could not deliver. Jason De La Cruz was charged with delaying mail delivery by a postal employee. He pleads guilty in court. At first, he intended to deliver the mail when he found time, but got overwhelmed and fell behind. De La Cruz takes full responsibility for the crime. He said that the job just wasn’t the right fit for him. He didn’t steal mail, and when they found the mail, the Post Office eventually got it sent out.
