The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Thomas Rolle. He gets the award for the following.

TAMPA, FL -- Tampa police say robbery suspect Thomas Rolle probably ought to to find a new line of work because he's not a very observant crook.

Police say Rolle saw an easy mark to rob outside Lee's Grocery on Central Avenue, a 68 year old man in a wheelchair. But Rolle apparently didn't see the police car parked a few feet away.

According to a police report, Rolle robbed the wheelchair bound man in broad daylight right in front of two Tampa police officers. The report adds, "The suspect robbed the victim by snatching money from his front left shirt pocket. During the robbery, Officer B. Bishop and MPO J. Dausch observed the confrontation and exited their vehicle. The suspect attempted to flee at which time he was immediately taken into custody.

Rob a wheelchair bound man within a few feet of law enforcement officer is all it takes to make Thomas Rolle today's Knucklehead of the Day.

At times you can chuckle about the stupidity of these criminals.
This stupidity, coupled with say with a desire for another hit of drugs is what leads them into robbing a convenience store at midnight, knowing there is no more than twenty dollars in the till, shooting and/or killing the clerk, all the while being captured on video.

Stupid, yes, potentially very dangerous; that is also a yes.
