Stolen GPS Leads Cops To Thieves

Tue Jan 23, 2007 4:49 am

Hah... http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16725294/

So should they go to jail for stealing, or just for being plain stupid?

Yup, a perfect father-and-son role model!  Silly

Quoting MSNBC Article:
Town officials said the thieves did not even know what they had: they thought the GPS devices were cell phones, which they planned to sell.

Cell phones?? How the hell do you confuse a cell phone with a GPS device? And the son was only 13. What a sad upbringing  Yeah sure

Search Google for "handheld GPS" and look at a few images, you'll see how someone with little knowledge of the things might confuse them with modern phones.

"But daddy, this doesn't look like a phone!"
"It's got buttons on it and a display, so damn well shut up and get me more of them!!"

Jay Leno said tonight: GPS = Going to Prison, Stupid!
And (paraphrased) "which was more stupid? ...giving cops directions to your house or trying to talk into the GPS"
COBOL - Not a dead language yet!
