There are many kinds of thugs in this world. You might remember The Beagle Boys who were cartoon thugs. They were always trying to steal Scrooge McDuck’s fortune. Now that is an understandable kind of thuggery because there is monetary gain in stealing (sometimes) but, today, there is a breed of thugs in this confusing world who have no idea why they are thugs. Because today’s thugs are so uncertain of their purpose in life, it is imperative we support our police forces just as much as possible to protect ourselves from the sheer stupidity of the youth of today who have decided to follow the thug’s life.
I feel compelled to ask you to speak to as many educators as possible in an effort to convince them we probably should stick to “Common Core” and any other whacko system our far left educators have come up with to educate our youth because their systems are not working.
It’s good the system isn’t working because the kids are getting dumber and dumber, but fret not, oh teachers of the stony heads. You are unwittingly keeping us safe from the very same dumb-downed kids you think you are educating.
You keep teaching what ever it is you think you have been teaching because if these guys (mostly guys) get any smarter we will have done the policemen all across this great country a terrible disservice. I will do my best to help out by listing a few basic rules for dummy thugs so the police can catch a break on having to continually lock them up because of their idiocy. My helpful hints include about ten or twelve golden rules that should still keep us safe but maybe give the police a break from having to lock up every dumbass walking the street after midnight.
So here goes folks – Benjamin Swilley’s Tips For Dummy Thugs:
1 – Do not text and drive in ditches, on sidewalks or medians at the same time. You are not invisible.
2 – Do not smoke dope, drink alcohol (especially if you are underage) and drive a car with no insurance, with no tag lights, with no tag, with no tail lights, with headlights off and no driver’s license or with a fake driver’s license. You are not invisible.
3 – Do not stand on other people’s cars if you have your pockets full of Xanax and no prescription. You are not invisible.
4 – Do not strike a police officer and then turn and run straight into a tree. You are not invisible…… but, to tell the truth, the tree probably did not see you coming.
5 – Do not urinate in a downtown Athens alley if you have warrant out for your arrest. You are not invisible.
6 – Do not go to sleep on the commode in the Waffle House if you have an outstanding warrant for your arrest. You were very visible when the manager had to unlock the door so the police could haul your dumbass to jail.
7 – Do not call the police to come to your house because of a disturbance if you have a warrant for your arrest sitting downtown just waiting on you.
8 – Don’t try to run from the police when you’re in a stolen car and you choose to go down a dead end street. You are not invisible. In other words…..THEY SAWWWWW YOU!!!!
9 – Do not do push-ups in the Varsity parking lot while you are roaring drunk and you have warrants out for your arrest. You are not invisible.
10 – Do not drink booze from a flask in downtown Athens if you are a 20 year old gal who is too drunk to drop the flask back into your pocketbook before the policeman sees you drop it on the ground. This time you were really, really visible.
11 – If you are homeless, do not raise hell with people who are giving you a place to stay and then they have to call the police and then the police find you have outstanding warrants for your arrest and then – do not tell them you have no place to stay because they know that is not quite true because the police know a place where you can spend the night. You have gone way beyond being visible.
12 – If you are exalted members of the bar do not think you and your fellow barrister are so highly educated you can do no wrong so you decide to kick back in your downtown Athens office and fire up a joint with a lady friend. The policemen walking the beat may not have such finely polished and filigreed diplomas as you guys but these two had excellent olfactory systems and they followed their trusty noses right to your office. You were only temporarily invisible before the fine sniffers of the lawmen ferreted out the wrongdoers.
