How Did This Incompetent Crook Impale Himself On His Own Knife?!

Criminal hands locked in handcuffs. Close-up view

Thanks to Dagny for finding this particular gem:

A 53-year-old man stole a knife from a Lowe’s Home Improvement Center, then died after he impaled himself on it as he ran from the store, the Plant City Police Department said.

Police said they received a call about 6:40 p.m. about a shoplifting in progress. Store officials told them a white male subject — identified as Jerry Ellis Word, 53 of Lakeland — had entered the store, 2801 James L. Redman Parkway, removed a knife from its packaging, then hid it on his person. Word then left the store without paying for it.

When he was confronted by store personnel, Word brandished the knife at them, employees said.

He ran southwest toward Parks Springs Apartments,  300 Park Springs Circle. While fleeing with the knife, however, police said Word somehow impaled himself on the knife.

Every time I wonder how the forces of law and order can contend with so much crime, I gain a better understand after reading stories like this. So many of the criminals are just so dumb.
