Dumbass Quote of the Week

I have not awarded a Dumbass of the Week certificate for a little while. I just caught this little gem in a story about another non-jury trial and execution, this one in southern Indiana.
SHELBYVILLE, Ind. - Police on Thursday stormed a convenience store and killed a gunman who had tied a vacuum cleaner cord around his hostage's waist to prevent her from escaping, authorities said.

* * * *

Smith [the hostage] said the gunman apologized as he tied the cord around her waist and gave her a necklace for his 13-year-old daughter. "He was really an OK guy to me, besides holding a gun to my head," she said.

Yeah, lady. Other than that gun to the head part, he was real swell.
