Stupidity exists on an endless spectrum. This boundless field can make it difficult to accurately measure just how half-witted someone or some act can be. There are people who don't wear a seatbelt or will text while driving.
Those acts are stupid because they put people at risk of injury، be it yourself or others. There are also people like 25-year-old Jonathan Rivera. According to the Associated Press، Rivera showed up to court in Hartford، Conn.، to answer a charge over a stolen car — and got there by driving a stolen car.
Rivera was charged with first-degree larceny and tampering with a motor vehicle. That theft occurred back in February.
While Rivera was at court talking with a judge about that charge، parking officers were scanning license plates in the courthouse parking lot. They spotted a car that had been reported stolen، so officers waited for a driver to return. Police say Rivera was arrested as he tried to drive away.
Two new charges were added — second-degree larceny and taking a motor vehicle without the owner's permission. Maybe he's going for a hat trick، or، if he wants to keep things simple، steal a car straight from the courthouse parking lot.
