I was discussing the nature of crime the other day with a colleague. I recently caught someone in a deception and was marveling at the stupidity of people who choose deception over honesty. We’ve all heard of the stupid criminal. It’s one reason why our jails are so full. They just don’t think things through far enough to cover their tracks.
Lucky for the rest of us.
Fortunately, most people are generally smart enough to realize that crime doesn’t pay. Even better, some of the most brilliant among us channel their energy into writing about the crimes they can imagine, and have fictional characters act them out.
