Adding Insult to Injury

Louisville police have arrested an individual on charges of attempted murder, assault, and robbery.  Nothing strange about that.  People get arrested in Louisville every day.

The attempted murder charge seems to come from an incident where the suspect and an accomplice robbed and shot a man on the street.   Again, while tragic, nothing out of the ordinary for Louisville there.

However, the story gets weird after that.  A couple of days later, knowing that their victim was still in the hospital and that his home would be unguarded, they burglarized his house.

Talk about big brass ones.  These guys are either masters of planning or complete morons.

First, you mug a guy then shoot him six times.  Then, taking advantage of his condition, you rob his home.  No thoughts that maybe doing so many things to one guy might make it easy for the police to tie it all up in a nice little package for the prosecutor.

Where do people come up with these ideas?  It would never occur to me to tell someone "Carry your gun when you walk down the street so that someone doesn't rob you and then burglarize your home while you're laid up."
