For want of a $130…

Today’s post won’t take that long to go over, it’s just about a real winners in society. Firstly, Mr. Emmanuel Franklin decided to fake his own kidnapping to scam his own mother out of $130. The story isn’t very long and this excerpt is quite literally almost all of it:

Franklin reportedly told his mother that if she didn’t put the money in a mailbox of his choosing, that he would be murdered by kidnappers.

The mother told Sumter County deputies she received a call from her son and a man she didn’t know, and relayed the incident to them.

Genius #2 decided to attempt to steal a commercial plane (American Eagle twin-jet) to attend a rap concert. Mr. Zemarcius Scott wanted to steal and fly a plane from Texarkana, TX to Chicago and see whomever Famous Dex is. The best portion of the story is the last few sentences of it:

Police said he told investigators he thought piloting the plane would involve little more than pushing buttons and pulling levers.

He has no training as a pilot.

In December, he was found mentally competent to stand trial.

These two individuals are true winners aren’t they?
