Bozo criminal for today comes from the International File in Beijing, China where an unidentified bozo burglar was rifling through an office on the 22nd floor of a high rise office building when he heard security guards approaching. Thinking quickly, he grabbed a computer cable, tied it around his waist and jumped out the window, hoping to climb down the cable to the 21st story below. Maybe he should have done some measuring before he jumped. The cable was too short to reach the floor below and he couldn’t get a good enough grip on it to climb back up to the 22nd floor. So there he was, stuck, hanging by a computer cable outside the building. For two hours before he was spotted, rescued and arrested.
