Social networking irresistible to home invaders 11/09/10

Myspace? You better have a ska band, buddy.
Apparently the warm, inviting glow of a computer screen distracts home invaders from their looting long enough to log on to social networking sites, see what their friends are up to and poke a few people before smashing some lamps and rifling through drawers.
I know that the compulsion to log in and see if someone has posted on your wall can be overwhelming at times. However, I feel certain that if I was committing a crime, I would probably be very focused on the task at hand and try my best to avoid going to jail.
You have to wonder what these computer geniuses posted as their status updates before getting busted:
"Put in requests now--about to gank some shizzat from this house I'm robbing for realz."
"Party people, going to pawn shop then let's meet for an appetizer tower at TGI Friday's ---jalapeno poppers on me."
"What's more valuable? Hummels or Precious Moments? Post your responses ASAP!"
"LOL. I THINK I BROKE INTO A HOUSE OF FURRIES! SO CREEPY!GONNA GRAB THE PLAY STATION AND BUST OUTTA HERE"
"Hey everybody, my ska band is playing at The Town Pump this Saturday nite @ 9pm. Oh crap."

  1. Wow. Who knew that thieves found that as enticing as female pheromones in a moth trap.
