Just When You Thought You Heard It All News (6-20-2014)

Lots of shallow women love this guy. Forget the fact that he's a career gangster, and forget the fact that this is a mug shot photo. He's so handsome (or so they say), but none of that matters.

Jeremy Meeks is the most wanted felon in Northern California, wanted by the ladies, that is.

Meeks is a repeat offender, and he's currently charged with six felony counts of street terrorism and weapons charges in Stockton. But that doesn't seem to faze his admirers on Facebook.

More than 13,000 lonely women, or maybe even men, who knows, with no good sense, no morals, and bad judgement, commented on the mugshot posted on the Stockton Police Department Facebook page.

You can go read the comments for yourself, but here's a sampling of what you'll find.

"how do you register for conjugal visitation rights is what i really want to know"

"i want this for christmas. Lol roadtrip to cali?"

"He can kidnap me anyday... Hold me against my will lol"

Someone even created a fan page.
I heard Charles Manson has one too!

Some people are just plain old stupid, and then there are these two geniuses.

 Shooting yourself with a gun you smuggled into prison won't get you lawsuit money or a reduced sentence.

We know this because Deshandre Billups and Kirk Cartwright know this. The two Florida inmates, along with five others, were arrested Tuesday in what authorities describe as a plot to sue the Florida Department of Corrections.

The department began its investigation in March after Billups and Cartwright were shot with a .25-caliber Beretta inside the Columbia Correction Institution in Lake City. Cartwright, 33, and Billups, 26, told guards that they were shot by an unknown assailant while they were praying in their cell. 
They should have prayed for some brains!

With the help of friends and family members and a third inmate the suspects allegedly smuggled the semi-automatic pistol into the prison through the mail, according to The Florida Times-Union. They allegedly had plans to shoot themselves and sue the prison system in an effort to settle for reduced sentences.

Authorities say they regularly snuck cellphones and drugs into the prison. They face five new felony charges, including firearm possession and several counts of contraband possession for the cellphones. Cartwright was already serving a life sentence for murder and Billups was serving 20 years for armed robbery and burglary, so they apparently thought that they had nothing to lose. But they'll have plenty more time to think about it.

The third inmate who allegedly helped them, 21-year-old Tony Underwood, is charged with introducing contraband into the prison. He's serving a six-year sentence for burglary and grand theft. Cartwright's girlfriend and Billups' mother were arrested Tuesday on charges stemming from the investigation. Arrest warrants have also been issued for Cartwright's sister and Underwood's girlfriend.

And in other dumb criminal news..........

Michigan authorities say a man tried to throw a football loaded with drugs and cellphones into the yard of a state prison.

According to state police Trooper Toby Baker, Sunday's throw in Jackson came up short with the football landing between two fences and not in the yard where prisoners exercise.

An officer at the G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility saw the man throw the football, and he was taken into custody.

The ball contained heroin, marijuana, tobacco, three cellphones and chargers.

C'mon! Everybody knows that if you're going to throw a ball full of heroin, marijuana, tobacco, three cellphones and chargers that you should at least use a basketball..

Baker says the man is facing possession of illegal drugs with intent to deliver, smuggling and trespassing on prison property charges.
