Remember how there used to be a time when people would commit crimes and then, like, try to cover them up? Well, those days appear to be rapidly fading away, especially with teens. They post pretty much anything to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Doesn't seem to matter if it's illegal. Well, the good thing about combining a dumb narcissistic teen criminal and technology is that it makes the cops' jobs a lot easier. Nineteen-year-old Hannah Sabata, who I'm going to take a wild guess and say isn't a Mensa member, was arrested after posting a video of herself on YouTube in which she admits to robbing a bank. Just to make things even easier for law enforcement, she titled it, "Chick bank robber." Thanks, Hannah! All that was missing was for her to walk into the police station herself.
Hannah sits on the floor of what appears to be a bedroom, flashing drugs in front of the camera and holding a series of flashcards detailing how she robbed a Nebraska bank and stole a car. She holds up a big wad of cash in front of the camera and flashes a sign saying:
I just stole a car and robbed a bank. Now I'm rich, I can pay off my college financial aid and tomorrow I’m going for a shopping spree.
This chick got into college?!! Guess Hannah didn't take "Common Sense 101." Scarily, Hannah is apparently a mother, and complains that the state took away her baby. This video will surely help matters, Hannah. That's sarcasm, though I'm guessing you probably wouldn't know that.
Hannah has been arrested and charged with robbery. The prosecution reportedly intends to use the video in court. Oh yeah, one more thing. You'd think it would be difficult for a video about a blonde teen girl bank robber to be boring -- but the video is yawn-inducing. I guess I could see if she did all of this for some kind of bank robber classic like Bonnie & Clyde. But this grainy, jumpy video that takes forever to get to the point? Not so much.
It's clear that the present generation just can't do anything without letting the world know about it. In the case of crime, that's a good thing. Keep it up, kids. We want to see your stupid crime videos. Jail awaits!
