    Burglary Suspect Picks Bad Hiding Place



    Jan 12, 5:36 AM (ET)


    SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Brian Valentino sure picked the wrong hiding place to elude police. The 33-year-old burglary suspect was being transported yesterday to the Onondaga County jail in Syracuse when he kicked out a back window of the police car and dove headfirst through the opening.

    Still handcuffed, Valentino ran a short distance and ducked into a building, where he ran down a hallway and hid behind a door.

    There was one problem. His hiding spot was inside the headquarters of the county sheriff's office. Apparently, Valentino didn't notice the big yellow star on the entrance.

    A retired deputy working part time in the building noticed the snow-covered, handcuffed man dash into the lobby. He followed him down the hall and held onto Valentino until the officer he escaped from arrived on the scene.

    Valentino now faces additional charges for the escape attempt.

    If criminals were smart, they wouldn't be criminals.

    Now you're giving too much credit to politicians.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    That's the problem with criminals....most of them are extremely smart. And that is part of what makes some of them so dangerous.

    Smart criminals don't get caught...they also don't go around bragging about their crimes. They are not driven by ego or addicted to the rush of 'living on the edge', they are professionals. They are only dangerous if you back them into a corner. Not that I know anything about the subject...just my thoughts.

    I would say they're dangerous because once they're dinged a few times, they have nothing to lose, can't get a good job, if any, and become desperate the rest of their lives.

    I find most of them to be poorly educated, raised, susceptible to addictions, come from bad neighborhoods, and mentally ill, generally speaking.

    White collar criminals? Another story I suppose.
