Some evenings, we watch the American TV show Cops. It is a documentary on police work in different cities in the USA. We are often appaled at how stupid some criminals are. On the other hand, if they were not stupid, I guess they would not have become criminals in the first place. it takes a certain kind of stupidity to commit crimes of the kind shown and getting caught. Earlier today, we also watched a documentary about a man who killed his wife. He was very stupid, trying to fake an alibi, but making numerous mistakes in the process. One part of the fake alibi would be that he would have purchased dinner to both himself and his wife, but the man selling dinner to him remembered, and the receipt from the restaurant proved, that he had bought food for just one person. Later on he returned twice to the remote place where he had buried the dead wife. The only good thing about these crimes is that it makes good TV.
