"If you build it, Dumb will come!"

Boston, Mass., police set up a sting operation that succeeded in recovering more than 230 stolen items, and helped them obtain 24 arrest warrants. It was all accomplished with the creation of a phony jewelry store, “MIB Jewelry” (MIB: “men in blue”).

Undercover officers opened the store after spreading rumors on the streets that the store would be a friendly buyer of stolen goods. They upped their odds of success by busting eight other stores that fenced stolen goods, which would have been competition for the new store. When asked if they ever worried that thieves would figure out the meaning of the store’s name, Police Commissioner Edward Davis’ replied, “We don’t catch the smart ones.”

A THOUGHT: So, if you’re a smart criminal you get a free pass in Boston?

Chase began writing several years ago, but never published anything until the "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?" blog launched in August of 2009. Chase simply got tired of standing around and just observing all of the craziness in the world, so this anxious writer sat down and wrote the first "Are YOu Friggen' Kidding Me?" article on August 19th, 2009. Now, any time something makes Chase say, "Are You Friggen' Kidding Me?", the issue get's transformed into an article. Chase is currently single, homeless and living under a bridge in South Florida.
