Busy little minx, isn't she?

A woman in Louisville was arrested today for committing eight robberies since Saturday.  Her targets included a gas station near where I work, as well as several restaurants in the area.  She apparently robbed several places, then changed her hair style and color, then robbed some more.

Just imagine if she'd put all of that thought and effort into finding gainful employment.  The mind boggles at how much better off she'd be if she'd gotten a job and stuck with it instead of becoming a full time guest of the criminal justice system.

This points to one of my opinions about life:  Most of the crime is committed by a dedicated corps of dirtbags.  Most people are too busy getting through job, family, school, or whatever to be such a nuisance to their neighbors.  There will be a few pikers who occasionally flout the law, but the majority of the time police spend investigating crimes is dedicated to the problems caused by a small minority of our citizenry.  Just my opinion, but I keep seeing things like this to back it up.

Kind of a reverse Threeper then?

Sounds like she's been reading too much of the Stainless Steel Rat series.
