Stupid Is as Stupid Does

From Louisiana comes this tale of young criminal masterminds:

Two people are accused of committing murder during an armed robbery in Ouachita Parish. According to court documents, it happened on Brown Street in Richwood on July 29, 2020.
Louisiana State Police say they were notified of an alleged homicide around 5 p.m. that same day. LSP stopped a speeding car on La. Highway 17 in Franklin Parish.
The driver was identified as Michael Dewayne Mitchell Jr., 18. During the stop, police say they noticed the smell of marijuana. They say Mitchell admitted to smoking marijuana and a search of the vehicle was conducted.
It was then that police found the body of a man in the trunk. The victim was identified as Michael Robinson Jr., 23, of Monroe.
Police say Mitchell then confessed to taking part in an armed robbery which resulted in the victim’s death.
Records state that he implicated another man, Cameron Powe, 19, saying the two of them robbed the victim in Richwood. Powe is accused of shooting the victim during the robbery, killing him.
According to police, Mitchell said they then loaded the body into the victim’s vehicle and planned to leave the victim and the vehicle at a site in the Winnsboro area. Mitchell was stopped before he could get there.

You know, when I highlight stories like this, I hesitate to point out the obvious lesson, for fear that I might be giving criminals advice on how better to get away with felonies. But then I rememember that these idiots are probably illiterate, so there is no harm in saying this: If you murder somebody and you load the victim’s body in the trunk of the car so you can dump it, obey the speed limit on your way to the dump site.

Also, don’t smoke weed on your way to dump the body.

These amateurs just never learn . . .
