A 'Dumb' Recommendation

I was on Amazon Prime Video the other day and it recommended a TV series for me to watch.

It brought back what I consider to be a hysterical memory.

The series of note is called America's Dumbest Criminals. It used to air on Sky One over here in the UK sometime during the 1990's.

I can't remember watching a full episode. However, I do recall seeing something on there that made me laugh.

There was security footage of a man who tried to smash his way into a building by throwing a brick at the window. He launched the item at the glass only for it to bounce back and knock him out.

My memory of the aftermath is hazy, but I believe he was still KO'd when the police showed up to see what was going on.

With video technology the way it is nowadays, and with crime numbers on the rise, I am sure this sort of programme could have a renaissance of sorts.
