Turd Burglar

Thief Steals Poop From Woman Walking Dog: The hunt is on for a turd burglar. Police in San Diego are searching for a gunman who swiped a bag of poop from a woman out walking her dog.

The woman told police that she was out walking her dog, Misty, on Monday night when a man in his 20s ran up behind her and grabbed the bag she was holding.

When the gunman discovered what was in it, he threw it down in disgust, pointed his gun at the 32-year-old woman and demanded money, San Diego police detective Gary Hassen said. He then aimed his .22-caliber semiautomatic at Misty and pulled the trigger twice but the gun didn't fire, Hassen said.

The robber ran to a waiting small, silver car and fled the scene, police said.

    1. Theif grabs poop, probably thinking it's a purse.

    2. Theif's gun then proceeds to not work.

    I'm surprised the guy's car started. If Linux had been involved, I'd be giving the cops your name.

    Momma always told me not to give a street robber any shit.

    He lost my sympathy when he tried to shoot the dog. Do whatever you want to people (or cats, for that matter), but you just don't shoot dogs.
