Burglar Kills Goldfish In Order To Leave No Witnesses
so long and thanks for all the fish
Three teenagers broke into a Chicago home recently, stealing “video game system, CD player, 30 video games, 30 DVDs, a BB gun, jewelry and a safe,” and before they left, poured a number of different condiments (yes, like ketchup) into the resident fishbowl, killing the fish within.
“As a matter of fact, it’s a little disturbing,” Hernandez said. “According to the police report, he looked at the fish tank and said ‘We can’t leave any witnesses.’”
Disturbing? More like silly. This is a group of teenage boys. “Leaving no witnesses” is A-material in a demographic that still dominated by the dead baby joke. They’re already breaking into a house. A little animal cruelty on some pretty un-photogenic animals isn’t too far away on the disturbing scale.
But I could be wrong. We could be looking at the next Peter Wiggin. Or we could be looking at a kid who made a joke during his arrest that was funny enough to put on the internet.
