graffiti crimeWe are by no means ever suggesting that someone turn to a life of crime, but rather are simply trying point out a couple things you might want to consider if you ever find yourself in position where you have to commit a crime.  Rule #1: Do not leave any evidence behind.  This is particularly important if you don’t want to get caught.  Rule #2: Do not leave your calling card behind like in a Batman episode where the bad guy leaves Batman a note claiming responsibility or with a riddle in it or something like that. Rule #3: Don’t get caught using or playing with anything that you have stolen…and this rule is especially important if there is a chance that person you stole from would see it.

Well, unfortunately for a young man in Palm Beach, Florida he didn’t follow the simple 3 rules laid out above.  He broke rule #1 when he did leave some evidence behind.  He broke rule #2 when he did leave a calling card behind in the form of graffiti on the wall saying “Speedy Wuz Here.”  As you can imagine, law enforcement didn’t need to burn the midnight oil on this one, rather they just pulled up Facebook and saw the young man’s nickname was Speedy.  Coincidence you might say?  Maybe?  But the most damning piece of evidence was not the Facebook name but rather the breaking of rule #3.  The police found the stolen basketball hoop in front of the young man’s house.  The problem was amplified for the fact that his house was only 4 houses down the street from the house he stole it from.   Can you say oops, I think I might need a bail bondsman?  Read the original story below.
