a comprehensive directory of rhodes scholars, entry #281.

From my former hometown’s crime blotter comes the report of an arrest for multiple snatch-‘n-run gas station robberies.  What makes this otherwise unremarkable entry worth mentioning is the picture of the young choir boy in question:


If there’s something you can do to yourself that virtually guarantees you won’t ever be employed in any sort of environment outside of an illegal chop shop, it’s a pair of freaking devil horns tattooed onto your forehead.

Also: grabbing a handful of $20 bills from the till at the gas station?  Not only is that a low-profit, high-risk sort of crime (he’ll be spending several years in the Greybar Motel for what couldn’t have been more than a hundred bucks or so), but it’s also not particularly evil.  Maybe he set his own bar a bit too high with that ink on his noggin.

    I dunno. Look at the guy. Somehow the horns are _appropriate_ for him. Now you don’t have to wonder if the guy is a bit less than saintly, it’s evident. Saves a lot of time and grief.

    He’s a Nazi lowrider, those tats are one of their trademarks… So are low rent crimes, stupidity, and general dirtbagishness….

    Eldest Daughter, who works in a convenience store, had someone try the old “snatch and grab” from the till. She hiked herself up on the counter opposite the register, slammed the drawer shut on the would-be thief’s paw with her feet, and proceeded to hold him that way until the police arrived.

    The only dumber tattoo than that I ever saw was the Chevrolet logotype on some doodah’s neck, above the top edge of any possible collar. I mean, I could see Harley-Davidson, or Grumman, or Boeing…

    Looks like a wannabe badass, but doesn’t really have the moxey for it.

    Were I running the War against Good and Evil, then I could play this guy from either side. I could, as an Evildoer, play a bunch of these mooks to lull Good into a false sense of security. Or, playing Good, then items like this definately take the scary out of the Dark Side.

    Then again, if I were playing evil I’d have the Number of the Beast set to something innocuous, like Pi, and market the crap out of 666 to make sure everyone was looking the wrong way.

    Just making conversation.
