You have the right to remain stupid

For those of you who think there's no such thing as persistence anymore, take one look a the case of Kevin Holder, the Nebraska man who was arrested this week for the 226th time. A lesser man might have given up on crime after the first 150 or 200 arrests, but not Kevin, who seems convinced that if he keeps engaging in criminal mischief, violating restraining orders, assaulting people, resisting arrest and possessing cocaine and marijuana, eventually he'll get at least one of them right.

Kevin's predicament raises several salient points:
  1. That proposed "225 strikes and you're out" law is sounding pretty good about now.
  2. If Kevin keeps going he's bound to break the arrest record set by Otis Campbell of Mayberry, whose record is already in question due to the fact that he usually arrested himself, and was fictional.
  3. There really needs to be more to do in Nebraska.

You have got to be kidding. How does this guy "get away" with all this? Yeeesh.

There seems to be a whole lot to do in Nebraska. And I'm feeling like a model citizen right now. Thanks!
