    2 candidates for the Golden Moron

    Didn't kill themselves, so no Darwin Award, but these two stories are definite candidates for a Golden Moron. I would have loved to hear the arresting officer in the 2nd story.


    Police: Teen accused of trying to rob undercover officers


    YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) -- A Westchester County teenager is facing a long list of charges after allegedly trying to rob two men and finding out they were undercover police officers.

    Yonkers police said the officers were in their unmarked car, doing overnight surveillance work, when Michael Garcia, 19, reached into the driver-side window, grabbed an officer and demanded money.

    Police said the two officers got out of the car. They say the unarmed suspect punched and kicked them while trying to avoid arrest. After the fight, all three men were treated at hospitals.

    Garcia is charged with attempted robbery, assault and resisting arrest.

    The name of his attorney could not immediately be determined.

    Police: Motorcyclist flipped bird, popped wheelie, crashed


    COPIAGUE, N.Y. (AP) -- A Long Island man who flipped his finger at a police cruiser and then popped a wheelie on his motorcycle is recovering from injuries after crashing.

    Suffolk County Police said Frank Patti, 26, of West Islip, rode by the police car at a service station in Copiague at 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Police say Patti made an obscene gesture to two officers in the car, popped a wheelie and then sped away.

    Police gave chase.

    When the motorcycle turned into a parking lot it crashed into a police car that had joined the chase.

    Police said Patti was treated for minor injuries at Southside Hospital. He's charged with fleeing police, resisting arrest and several traffic violations.

    He was being held for arraignment Monday. Police did not know if he had an attorney.

    I really, honestly think some people go to a special "stupid school" with all the dumb things they do!

    I suggest that if you can find in your inner self the will to inflict violence on someone who is trying to victimize you, and can back up that iron will with all the force that you can muster, you will most likely be successful.

    The first one happens way to often... its happened to me personally twice in the last year. Its just to be expected dealing with those types of people.

    The second one happens often too, motorcycle chases almost always end up in a crash... how it started is what makes it a classy story.

    Thank you Lord for putting a smile on my face. Just when you think things are bad the Lord takes what was meant for evil and makes good come from it. Nothing like a BG getting an attitude adjustment.
