First Rule Of Robbing Banks: Don’t Brag About It On YouTubeBy: Zach Walton - December 5, 2012
A lot of criminals could be categorized as less than intelligent. The Internet has made that more apparent than ever as idiots around the world are posting their criminal exploits on social media. Today’s dumb criminal went the extra step and filmed herself on YouTube right after stealing a car and robbing a bank.
Hannah Sabata, 19, of Nebraska, is like many teens who use YouTube to share daily exploits and connect with like minded people. Her account was updated with a new video last week, however, that featured Sabata bragging about her recent adventure that involved stealing $6,000 from a bank.
The video is still up on YouTube for your viewing pleasure with the following description:
I just stole a car and robbed a bank. Now I’m rich, I can pay off my college financial aid and tomorrow i’m going for a shopping spree. Bite me. I love GREENDAY!
Hey, we all have mountains of student debt, but robbing a bank isn’t going to fix anything. In fact, it’s probably going to make things worse. She might have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for the little fact that she filmed a seven minute video showing off the stuff she stole.
After the video went public, loads of viewers called the local sheriff. She was arrested and is now hopefully reevaluating her life choices.
This is the kind of stuff that makes me lose faith in humanity. Robbing a bank is one thing, but bragging about it for seven minutes on YouTube is a whole new level of stupid. The real insult, however, is that the video exposes you to seven minutes of Green Day music. She didn’t have the decency to pick any of the band’s somewhat decent songs.[h/t: NY Times]
