Stop Me If You've Heard This One Before

It's not that I want to blog about every violent, law-breaking scumbag that's out walking the street, thanks to the compassionate and "progressive" Massachusetts criminal justice system, I mean, really, who's got that much spare time?

But, these scumbags crossed the line.

The state line, that is.

HAVERHILL, Mass. -- Two men were arrested Wednesday after an attempted armed robbery of a Brinks armored truck at a Bank of America ATM.

Isaac Sosa, 18, of Lawrence, and Christopher Delarosa, 19, of Billerica, approached the guards while they were making a pick up at the ATM, police said.

One of the men tried to take a bag of money from one of the guards, but a struggle ensued.

Police arrived on the scene and the two suspects fled over the state line into Plaistow, New Hampshire.

The two men were stopped by police and arrested.

And, now, the entirely unforeseeable punchline, brought to you this evening by the No Looking Backwards Department of Shocking News Developments.

Both were charged with being Fugitives from Justice from the State of Massachusetts and their bail was set at $350,000 cash each.

But, they promised the judge they'd behave themselves and show up in court when ordered to do so. What's this world coming to when you can't even take two fine, upstanding young men as these at their word?
