Can they really be that ^&*%ing stupid!?

(1) Robert Michael Phillips was arrested in West Palm Beach, Florida, in February and faces a series of charges after police witnessed him allegedly conducting drug transactions and found heroin in his pocket and crack cocaine in his vehicle. (His rap sheet includes seven convictions and a prison stint.) On his February police intake form, under "occupation," Phillips stated, "drug dealer."

(2) John Balmer, 50, was arrested at a Kmart in Hudson, Florida, in January as he attempted to pass a bag (allegedly containing marijuana and methamphetamine) to another person in line. Balmer was wearing a T-shirt that read, "Who needs drugs?" above lettering that read, "No, seriously, I have drugs." [Palm Beach Post, 2-6-2015] [Tampa Bay Times, 1-6-2015]
