Two men photographed each other stealing thousands of dollars from gambling machines. An armed man successfully robbed a pharmacy and was captured after he boasted about it on social media. A burglar spent time cleaning the house he was robbing and even restocked some groceries before he was discovered fast asleep in the homeowner’s bed. Two drunken louts stole a penguin from an aquarium and tried to release it into a canal once they were sober (the creature was returned to the polar enclosure, unharmed). Another man attempted to hold up a bank using a cucumber as a weapon. Two fellows tried to rob a bar where the town’s police department was holding a retirement party for one of its members. For every Moriarty, there are a thousand stupid criminals who get caught in the act, or who boast about their success on social media, or whose plans are so foolish that the police have little difficulty tracking them down. Throughout history, these criminals have been easily captured; some have even died during an ill-fated escape. New criminals are apprehended every day thanks to their own genius, their exploits captured on YouTube and Instagram. The World’s Dumbest Criminals records more than one hundred of the most ridiculous, absurd and bizarre crimes that have landed on the police blotter in recent years. Hilarious and outrageous, this book will make you shake your head and perhaps second-guess your own plans to commit petty larceny.

WARNING: The crimes you are about to read are true. The names have not been changed. These "World's Dumbest Criminals" make imprisoned psychopaths seem angelic in comparison. How did the worst racketeers conspire to spread their heinous True Crimes worldwide? Part of that story began in the USA. The USA was the origin of Nazi salutes and Fascist behavior through the work of an American socialist: Francis Bellamy, author of the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. The American Nazi salute was often performed by public officials in the USA from 1892 through 1942. What happened to old photographs and films of the American Nazi salute performed by federal, state, county, and local officials? Those photos and films are rare because people don't want to know the truth about the government's past. Public officials in the USA who preceded the German socialist (Hitler) and the Italian socialist (Mussolini) were sources for the stiff-armed salute (and brainwashed chanting) in those countries and other foreign countries influencing the worst reprobates, including: Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong, Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Kim Il-sung, Ho Chi Minh, Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Kim Jong-il, Benito Mussolini, Kim Jong-un, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara and more! They showed that Killing socialists is trademark socialism. Millions died. Yet, the "World's Dumbest Criminals" escaped justice and many continue to be glorified as "great leaders." Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (and their fans) self-identify the same way Hitler did: SOCIALIST. (Hitler and his supporters did not call themselves "Nazi" nor "Fascist"). "Socialism" was touted by the very word in voluminous speeches & writings by the socialists Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, the Kim thugs, etc. Soviet socialism joined German socialism to launch the socialist war (WWII) invading Poland etc. It led to socialism's many genocides. Who was worst: Stalin, Mao, or Hitler? Stalin shares guilt for genocides of Mao, Hitler & himself, and Pol Pot, and the Kim thugs and other socialists. German socialism and Soviet socialism joined to launch the socialist war (WWII), invading Poland and going onward. Stalin assisted Mao. It led to genocide under many other socialists. The importance of this book cannot be overstated. It is a microcosm of the amorality of what remains of world socialism. It shines a floodlight on the ethical vacuum that is collectivism and its overlords. America is following them into that hell.

From Midnight to Guntown

A former prosecutor's hilarious tales of the ne'er-do-wells and knuckleheads he helped bring to justice

As a federal prosecutor in Mississippi for over thirty years, John Hailman worked with federal agents, lawyers, judges, and criminals of every stripe. In From Midnight to Guntown, he recounts amazing trials and bad guy antics from the darkly humorous to the needlessly tragic. In addition to bank robbers--generally the dumbest criminals--Hailman describes scam artists, hit men, protected witnesses, colorful informants, corrupt officials, bad guys with funny nicknames, over-the-top investigators, and those defendants who had a certain roguish charm. Several of his defendants and victims have since had whole books written about them: Dickie Scruggs, Emmett Till, Chicago gang leader Jeff Fort, and Paddy Mitchell, leader of the most successful bank robbery gang of the twentieth century. But Hailman delivers the inside story no one else can. He also recounts his scary experiences after 9/11 when he prosecuted terrorism cases.

The pitch went like this: Chris Butler, a retired cop, ran a private investigator firm in Concord, California. His business had a fascinating angle—his firm was staffed entirely by soccer moms. In fact, Butler employed PI Super Moms: attractive, organized, smart, and trained in investigative techniques, self-defense, and weaponry. This American Life host Ira Glass described them as “MILF: Charlie's Angels." When this story came across Pete Crooks's desk when he was working at Diablo magazine in 2010, he was instantly hooked. He'd heard a little bit about Butler and his super moms in the news; they'd been featured in People magazine and on Dr. Phil. What Butler's publicist was offering was too tantalizing to pass up: an opportunity to ride along with Butler and a few of his sexy PIs as they prepared to start filming a reality TV show. But after the ride-along—and after he started receiving mysterious emails from one of Butler's employees—Crooks started to realize something didn't seem right. After doing a little digging, he discovered the “sting" he'd seen only had one real victim…him. The PI bust had been a setup. Crooks wasn't a hardboiled crime reporter. He did lifestyle pieces for a regional magazine. The more he learned about Butler's operation, the more he realized he was in far over his head. But swallowing his fears, he decided he was going to write an expose on Butler and his entire organization. He soon found himself deep in the underbelly of fake sting operations, wannabe celebrities, police corruption, drug-dealing, reality television, double-crossing employees, and more twists and turns than a dozen crime thrillers.

A brilliant, no-nonsense profile of the criminal mind, newly updated to include the latest research, effective methods for dealing with hardened criminals, and an urgent call to rethink criminal justice from expert witness Stanton E. Samenow, Ph.D. “Utterly compelling reading, full of raw insight into the dark mind of the criminal.”—John Douglas, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Mind Hunter Long-held myths defining the sources of and remedies for crime are shattered in this groundbreaking book—and a chilling profile of today’s criminal emerges. In 1984, Stanton Samenow changed the way we think about the workings of the criminal mind, with a revolutionary approach to “habilitation.” In 2014, armed with forty years of additional knowledge and insight, Samenow explored the subject anew, explaining criminals’ thought patterns in the new millennium, such as those that lead to domestic violence, Internet victimization, and terrorism. The arenas of criminal behavior have expanded, demanding another updated version, which includes an exploration of social media as a vehicle for criminal conduct, new pharmaceutical influences and the impact of the opioid crisis, recent genetic and biological research into whether some people are “wired” to become criminals, new findings on the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral therapy, and a fresh take on criminal justice reform. Throughout, we learn from Samenow’s five decades of experience how truly vital it is to know who the criminals are and how they think differently. If equipped with that crucial understanding, we can reach reasonable, compassionate, and effective solutions.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In the first and only inside account of the Mueller investigation, one of the special counsel’s most trusted prosecutors breaks his silence on the team’s history-making search for the truth, their painstaking deliberations and costly mistakes, and Trump’s unprecedented efforts to stifle their report. “Weissmann delivers the kind of forceful, ringing indictment that Mueller’s report did not.”—The New York Times In May 2017, Robert Mueller was tapped to lead an inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, coordination by foreign agents with Donald Trump’s campaign, and obstruction of justice by the president. Mueller assembled a “dream team” of top prosecutors, and for the next twenty-two months, the investigation was a black box and the subject of endless anticipation and speculation—until April 2019, when the special counsel’s report was released. In Where Law Ends, legendary prosecutor Andrew Weissmann—a key player in the Special Counsel’s Office—finally pulls back the curtain to reveal exactly what went on inside the investigation, including the heated debates, painful deliberations, and mistakes of the team—not to mention the external efforts by the president and Attorney General William Barr to manipulate the investigation to their political ends. Weissmann puts the reader in the room as Mueller’s team made their most consequential decisions, such as whether to subpoena the president, whether to conduct a full financial investigation of Trump, and whether to explicitly recommend obstruction charges against him. Weissmann also details for the first time the debilitating effects that President Trump himself had on the investigation, through his dangling of pardons and his constant threats to shut down the inquiry and fire Mueller, which left the team racing against the clock and essentially fighting with one hand tied behind their backs. In Where Law Ends, Weissmann conjures the camaraderie and esprit de corps of the investigative units led by the enigmatic Mueller, a distinguished public servant who is revealed here, in a way we have never seen him before, as a manager, a colleague, and a very human presence. Weissmann is as candid about the team’s mistakes as he is about its successes, and is committed to accurately documenting the historic investigation for future generations to assess and learn from. Ultimately, Where Law Ends is a story about a team of public servants, dedicated to the rule of law, tasked with investigating a president who did everything he could to stand in their way.
