They Just Don't Make Ninjas Like They Used To

Laguna Niguel, CA

Timothy M. Clinch, 31, was arrested after allegedly breaking into a house in Laguna Niguel and threatening a woman with a samurai sword.

The woman went downstairs when she heard a suspicious noise and was confronted by Clinch, who put the sword to her throat. He then goes on to tell her that her husband, who was asleep upstairs, was tied up in the living room. When he was confronted with the reality of that, he told her, "Oh, so your husband thinks he's a fucking hero?" and ran outside to go look for him.

So she locked him outside and called the cops.

They found him hiding under an SUV when deputies saw his hand sticking out from underneath it.

I think little Timmy took too much Nyquil.

Oh dear. Poor, poor ninjers. Bet they kicked him plumb outta the club fer that.

On question about the tag you've assigned this entry - "stupid crime" - how do you differentiate? Where do you draw the line between stupid and sneaky or clever? Would we even know what had happened if it were truly sneaky or clever? I feel a philosophical discussion coming on. And that's not just the Nyquil talking.

If you did something and got away with it, you probably did it right.

Robbing a bank = Crime

Robbing a bank wearing a motorcycle helmet with your name plastered on the front = Stupid Crime

Stealing an ATM = Clever Crime

Failing to steal an ATM because you wrapped a chain around it and attached it to your rear bumper, yanking the bumper off the car because the ATM was too well secured into the wall, and then taking off without bothering to take the bumper, which has your license plate attached = Stupid Crime

And as to your note on sneaky and clever, I can only say this. The best crimes are the ones you never hear about.

Does anyone know where George Bush was? This sounds right up his alley.
