No One Here Gets Out Alive

This came across the Fox News crawl during their weekly "The Cost of Freedom" investing shows on Saturday ... it's one of those "Stupid Criminal" stories that just grab you:

Reuters: Two chinese thieves accidentally gas themselves to death with cyanide while robbing a gambling den. Five victims also die. Three of the robbers accomplices survived and have been sentenced to death.

Five victims, five perps. Symmetry is important.

Cyanide gas as a close-quarters robbery weapon ... only in a country where controls make it difficult for hard-working criminals to get their hands on "safe" weapons like guns.

You would've thought big sticks would have been easier and a lot safer! :)

This seems like something you would find on "World's Stupidest Criminals". As Haddock says, sticks probably would have been better, but then again, these guys may have beaten themselves to death instead of their victims! ;~)
