"Prosecutors say a man stole $88,000 from a bank vault. The FBI caught him after he flashed stacks of bills on social media. [...]  If you're systematically stealing money from a bank vault, it may not be a good idea to post the evidence on your social media pages."

A man allegedly teaching his dog to drive was arrested after leading troopers on a high speed chase



A man was arrested Sunday after leading troopers on a high-speed chase with his dog sitting in the driver's seat, a spokeswoman for the Washington State Patrol said.

The man from Lakewood, Washington, hit two cars on separate occasions and failed to stop both times, leading state troopers on a high-speed chase up Interstate 5, the spokeswoman said. No major injuries were reported in either crash.

"He was driving very erratically. So erratically that multiple people called 911," trooper Heather Axtman told CNN.

The suspect was driving "absolutely recklessly," and a pursuit ensued at 109 miles an hour, she said. One of the troopers attempted to corner the suspect's car, looked inside and realized a pit bull was sitting in the driver's seat while the suspect steered, Axtman said.

As he was trying to evade troopers, the suspect drove onto Centennial Trail, a trail for pedestrians and bicyclists in Snohomish County known for being busy, according to Axtman.
"The fact that there wasn't anybody on the trail is nothing shy of miraculous." Axtman said. "We are very thankful."

Eventually troopers were able to use spike strips to end the pursuit. During the arrest, Axtman said the suspect gave them one explanation: He was "trying to teach his dog how to drive."

"I wish I could make this up," Axtman, who is also a public information officer, said. "I've been a trooper for almost 12 years and wow, I've never heard this excuse. I've been in a lot of high speed chases, I've stopped a lot of cars, and never have I gotten an excuse that they were teaching their dog how to drive."

The Washington State Patrol charged the man with reckless endangerment, hit and run, driving under the influence and felony eluding. His bond was set at $8,500 and he is set to appear in court March 30.

As for the dog, Axtman said the "very sweet girl" was taken to the animal shelter after her owner was arrested.

Update to the above:
Upon further examination, after the arrest, the dog was tested, and found to be under the influence of LSD, Crack Cocaine, Methamphetamine, and had a BAC of 0.40... also found were marijuana blunts, one tucked behind the dogs ear....

the dog kept repeating.. " Dude, all I want is a couple cans of Wolf's Tooth Dogfood..the Dirty Filthy Hippie flavor, but Raccoon flavor will do.. I got the munchies sumpin' feirce..."

WTF is wrong with people? Damn attention whores!!!!

https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/07/us/california-fire-el-dorado-gender-reveal-trnd/index.html

A gender reveal sparked a wildfire in California that's grown to 7,000 acres


As multiple wildfires burn in California, one of the fires was started during a gender-reveal party, officials said.

A "smoke generating pyrotechnic device" used at the party caused the El Dorado Fire in San Bernardino County, Cal Fire said in a press release.

The fire started Saturday at 10:23 a.m. at the El Dorado Ranch Park in Yucaipa and spread from the park north on to Yucaipa Ridge, according to the release.

It has since grown to 7,050 acres as of early Monday morning, the Cal Fire incident website shows.



Evacuations have been ordered for the communities of Oak Glen, Yucaipa Ridge, Mountain Home Village and Forest Falls. An evacuation warning is in effect for the Yucaipa bench area and Yucaipa Community Center is being used as a temporary evacuation facility, according to Cal Fire.

More than 500 personnel have been deployed to the fire, along with 60 engines and four helicopters, according to the website.

Overnight weather is expected to remain hot and dry with a relative humidity of 20%, San Bernardino National Forest said in it's evening update on the fire. Winds will also continue at three to five miles per hour with gust up to 10 miles per hour, resulting in "active fire behavior throughout the night."

No charges have been announced in the blaze.

I suppose at this point that MAYBE someone cares, not me. Another child born to idiot parents.

Please pardon my language.

Unfortunately, stupid people do stupid things, and that is likely to continue.  What is more unfortunate is the lack of preparing for and prevention of what is, certainly, inevitable.

I believe that it's fairly difficult/impossible to prepare for every instance of stupidity and stupid behavior. Just when you think that you're prepare for idiocy along comes a more idiotic idiot to throw a wrench into the works.   

Case in point. Look at what's happening today in this country. Who could have anticipated and prepared for this?

Well I guess it depends on what exactly/specifically that is happening in this country that you are referring to. If it is the pandemic..then....
