Before I go on with the post, I want to thank everyone for the comments. I wasn’t sure how a blog like this would go over but the reaction has been nothing but good! If you’re a BE member expect a little surprise if you commented. If you’ve voted for me in BOTB, I thank you as well. Keep the comments coming!

Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris
This pair was stopped when Norris couldn’t keep from bragging about his role in the 1978 murder spree to an old prison pal, who turned around and told the information to his lawyer, who then in turn gave the information over to the local police.
As you can see, sooner or later the criminal makes a careless mistake that can lead to their arrest. It can be something as simple as bragging about a crime, to something as simple as a traffic stop.
