Least Competent Criminals |  New World Order
Massachusetts state troopers initially found a few drug items in a search of the vehicle of Carrie Tutsock, 24, at a traffic stop in March along Interstate 91 near Hatfield, Massachusetts, but Tutsock and her two companions proceeded to worsen the situation. The troopers seemed satisfied with finding three drug pipes, a couple of syringes and several baggies of drugs, and began to write their report as a "possession" case, but en route to the state police barracks, a trooper said he overheard one suspect whisper to another, "I don't think they found all the stuff in the car." The police searched it again and this time found three digital scales with white residue, along with another 230 baggies of heroin, and the charges were upped to "intent to distribute."

In March, Foreign Policy magazine noted that someone had created a "hot male migrants" account on the photo-sharing application Instagram: "Someone is going through photos of migrants and refugees, saving ones of men thought of as hot." (Many of the men, of course, have survived harrowing journeys and even lost friends and family members while fleeing Syria and other war-torn lands. Wrote one Instagram user, of a man who had turned her head, "He's gorgeous. Am I going to hell for thinking that?") [Foreign Policy, 3-11-2016]
