Every day, untold numbers of homes are broken into. Some of them, as we’ve seen time and again, are broken into by people for whom planning is clearly not a personal strength. But it’s not every day we see planning of such poor quality that it results in a couple of guys breaking into the home of the city’s Police Chief.
Conner Hinton and Taylor Nuttal may both be only 17, but that’s almost voting age. If they can’t make good decisions by now then…ok, you know what? I’m not going to continue down the almost voting age good decisions line. I’ve seen how a lot of people vote and pressing on would just make me sound like an idiot. See? Good planning.
The arrests occurred shortly after Sugar Land police responded to a residential alarm in the 2000 block of Holly Glade Lane on Feb. 8 at 11:45 a.m. A backdoor was forced open and several boards were missing from a portion of the fence that backs up to a greenbelt. Nothing inside the house was missing.
A neighbor alerted authorities when she witnessed two teens climb the fence to Brinkley’s yard. Police located Hinton and Nuttal in a vehicle shortly after the break-in.
“They just chose my house,” Chief Doug Brinkley said in an interview with The Huffington Post. “I wouldn’t want to see them end in prison for the rest of their lives, but unfortunable that’s where they’re heading with behavior like this.”
Unfortunable? Is that a word? I can’t find it. Maybe somebody should have brought a dictionary to his interview. Bad planning, perhaps.
