The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is Feliks Goldshtein. He gets the award for the following-

A man may have tipped his intentions when he stood in line at an Ohio bank wearing a ski mask before staging a holdup. Police in Stow near Akron say 24-year-old Feliks Goldshtein of Highland Heights was arrested minutes later on Thursday following a brief car chase.

Police say the teller asked the man to take off the mask before being served. At that point the man displayed what turned out to be a toy gun and told the teller to give him all the money. He made off with an undisclosed amount.

Police Captain Rick Myers says it's unusual for a masked robber to wait in line at a bank.

Bank robbers can be polite too. He didn't want to cut in line!

Feliks Goldshtein didn't get away with the dough but he did become today's Knucklehead of the Day.

At least he was honest about his intentions. Liberal Democrats in government don't even bother wearing a mask when they rob the tax payer.

See how structured some people are? They wait in line for everything, so why do anything different for a bank heist? And about that name: Did he change the spelling because he got tired of people pronouncing it wrong?

I dunno. I just moved from around Stow. It's pretty dang cold back there! I could see wearing a ski mask nearly everywhere!

It's a tragedy and you must be ashamed of yourselves for laughing at this person. You know nothing about this person, and yet you cast the stone at him. His family came to this country and sacrificed so much for him, he went to college, he was a good person, and something snapped in him, he was going through a very tough time.
