Teach what you know

So we don't have a long story for today, but that's alright, because we're all sorts of scattered. But enough about us. Let's dive right in to the good stuff.

What do you do when you confess to over 1,000 different burglaries? Well, if you're like most thieves, you start getting your mail and personal affects forwarded on to one of the local prisons, and you don't plan on seeing much of the light of day for years. Oh, and you get prepared to get friendly with your potential cell mates over the years.

So now, what do you do when you confess to over 1,000 different burglaries around LA, and the police have, thus far, found close to 200 victims? Well, why not try and get your sentence reduced? An LA burglar did just that by producing a "how to" video for the police, showing how he committed many of his crimes, and giving them a valuable training tool.

You know, this sort of thinking could catch on and spread like wildfire. Imagine some of the other uses. We could have arsonists making training materials for firefighters, addicts helping out the narcotics division, and gun makers working with homicide.

Of course, this isn't entirely new. After all prostitutes have been working hand in hand with politicians for years to make sure even gets screwed.
