20 Amazing Photos from the 2011 England Riots

Burglar arrested after leaving his Facebook account logged in at the crime scene

bugglaratfacebookHow dumb can you get? Really, really, really dumb. Jonathan Parker, a PA resident, decided to rob a house outside of Martinsburg in Berkeley County, WV. But that’s not the dumb part. Ready for this? He checked his Facebook account on the victim’s computer and left it logged in! The Martinsburg Journal (sort of my home newspaper, unfortunately) reports.
