Dumbest Criminal of the Week! Nice job, Alonso Jose Lopez!

Errrrr
Alonso Jose Lopez, a Vista Homeboys (VHB) hoodlum, is sitting in a California prison right now and probably wondering why.

Lopez had been sent to prison before and after his release likely thought that the experience made him wiser about avoiding police detection in the future.

But the 34-year-old was wrong and now he's captured an honor:

Yes, it's Orange County's Dumbest Criminal of the Week!

If you're hoping to duplicate Lopez's impressive feat, consider this following checklist:

1. Use your girlfriend's vehicle to rob a Laguna Beach jewelry store.

2. Do nothing to prevent eyewitnesses see you and your accomplices get into your girlfriend's car, eventually abandon it and flee after forgetting to grab the stolen items.

3. Leave inside the get-away vehicle your cell phone, identification card as well as your fingerprints on a zip bag of plastic ties identical to the ones used to tie up the jewelry store employees.

This week a California Court of Appeal based in Santa Ana considered and rejected Lopez's cries that he'd been unfairly convicted of robbery, burglary and street terrorism based on his August 2009 crimes in OC's best city.

Too bad Anaheim PD didn't catch this loser, we wouldn't have to worry about paying to house  his dumb ass.

Lopez?

Well perhaps if the laws against illegal immigration were enforced by authorities who are paid to do their job, then taxpayer money would not have to be used up on these criminals.

Get this man a Voter ID card. He will need it for the next time.

Christopher, that's a bit nonsensical to say simply on the basis of a hispanic name. It's estimated that 2/3 of our nation's hispanic population are not illegal aliens.

Are you acting stupid to make a point? Or is it unintentional?

Undoubtedly true!...from a red-blooded Mexican American born in Los Angeles...

Actually it is probably more like 3/4.

However, how hard would it be to get this guys immigration status -- either on the part of the cops or the media? It would be interesting and relevant to policy debates.

There is a decent chance the guy is here illegally -- I'd say around 30%. Why not inquire?

If your family has been here since 1790 are you still Mexican?  Actually, why not, just teasing, and making a little point. Most to all "Mexicans" I know are pleased and proud to be Americans and are not any more ashamed of their heritage than I am of my Scottish heritage (there's something just not right a bout a man that doesn't love the pipes).

BTW, any reason you believe that when he was arrested that his status wasn't verified?

That's really a stretch on the interpretation.

He strongly implies that crime is caused by illegals and that he believes the guy to be an illegal.
