Gotta respect this guys thirst for thrills. Life was to easy being a felon on probation who was still in the game of committing crime. Anyone could burglarize a vehicle that isn’t full of cops. But it takes the ultimate m̶o̶r̶o̶n̶ adrenaline seeker to see that car full of cops and take a Most Dangerous Game approach and say to yourself that you can steal it. It’s that kind of not letting people say you can’t mantra that has led to so many great things like I-Phones and all day breakfast at McDonalds. You don’t see people at the X-Games simply doing bunny hops do you? No, you see quadruple back flips while they’re on fire. That’s what this guy is. A man who’s looking to change the game who’s also going back to prison.
I would love to of been in that car while this guy tried get inside with all the cops in there. They probably saw him going to all the cars, getting rejected by everyone just praying that he comes to their car. Like an early Christmas present, this dude tries their car stuffed with police. A bigger laugh could not of been had in all of Florida when they had 20 guns drawn on him and they said “may we help you?” The man in question should of said that he was looking for his car and can’t remember what it looks due to doing bath salts. I feel like bath salts are still happening down there so it would of scanned. Better than saying that you’re a thief and are just trying to steal a car. That excuse never goes over well. Lesson learned
