What a thickie.
A teenager on probation for car theft has been arrested after court documents relating to that car theft were found alongside identifiable personal items in a second stolen car. These items were subsequently collected from the police station by the suspect, who arrived in a third stolen vehicle. Carnell Eugene Butler, 18, "now …
""Infiniti" is supposed to be a high-end 'Mark' / 'Badge' brand identity, and Datsun Nissan would prefer that it not be prefaced with their low-rent econobox corporate identity."
If you're going to get all technical with this sort of thing, the word you're looking for is 'Marque', not 'Mark'.
We don't have the "Infiniti" brand in the UK so it's an easy mistake to make if the writer's British.
[Edit] Turns out we do have that brand here although I don't know if I've ever seen one on the streets. In my defence, I'm pretty out of touch on the whole car thing.
More accurately shameless indifferent to the crimes they commit, a complete lack of conscience. Rather than crazy stuff like three strikes laws, there should be testing for psychopathy laws and those individuals who genetically lack a conscience through social cerebral defect should be treated differently. the likelihood of them repeatedly committing crimes instead of being a probability is much closer to being a certainty and this should be reflected in their bail conditions and post prosecution rehabilitation, should they fail to rehabilitate it should mean either no release or very tight monitoring.
Kid's probably totally harmless, simple exposure to mainstream media rags his parents carelessly left laying about the house in conjunction with playing GTA games at too young of an age has left him thinking that stealing cars is a sporting activity.
He doesn't realize only bank robbery is actually sporting.
If adults weren't continually making this world a totally retarded nightmare to live in, kids wouldn't act nearly as stupid as they do.

I entirely agree!
P.s. those chaps with the skulls on their hats gave us a bad name - glad we're finally back!
Clearly from the shallow end of the gene pool

Too true. A mate, who hails from Merseyside, once regaled me with the tale of a local plod who'd won several awards for crime clearup.
His revolutionary crimebusting technique was to do a tour of the local supermarkets and run a PNC check on every vehicle parked in a disabled bay without the relevant badge. Apparently this netted him a good supply of nicked or uninsured vehicles, owners with outstanding warrants, stuff like that.
A point commonly trotted out on the "reality TV" cop shows is that the job would be a damned sight more difficult, were it not for the convenient fact that criminals tend to be so stupid that they effectively catch themselves.
Many years ago i worked in an Off licence. One Sunday a bottle of our best burgundy (£31 in early nineties) went walkies. We checked the CCTV and identified a probable punter. I had two staff who had lived in the town all their life. Both of them said "oh yes. That is blah." Plod went round to his house and the empty bottle was on the draining board.
He was duly pinched, hauled up before the beak and pleaded guilty. He had to pay it back at £2 a week.
Whatever, onwards ...
I seem to remember a very similar case in Manchester when I was getting my A-levels in the 1970s. Stupidity is common across the entire human population. I'm certain Sam Clemens had something pithy to say about that, but I can't be arsed to look it up.
He's got a rival in this dim-witted chap who turned up to court, on a charge of supplying cocaine, where he was found innocent. However, he had cocaine in his personal effects at the time, and was up before the beak again, where he plead guilty. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/oct/16/man-jailed-after-turning-up-in-court-dock-with-large-amount-of-cocaine
"Is Mr Butler non-white?
Was the policemen's intuition guided by that?"
No, his intuition was guided by the fact that he had proof that the guy stole two cars, and found a set of car keys on him when they arrested him. He knew where he lived, and if that's far enough away it's likely that he drove to the station with the car matching the keys, so just walk around pressing the remote locking button and see what happens.
" According to your link, he was born in 77"
Yep, sorry about that. Thought I'd withdrawn it previously.
On an aside, whilst looking for the arrest record, it became apparent that his is a relatively common name in a relatively small geographical area. And the police appear to be familiar with it.
I suspect the former; apparently the habit of leaving keys on the sun visor has actually increased in recent years. Drivers carry the alarm/locking keyfob but leave the keys in the vehicle. It is this habit which has led the automotive industry to develop folding keys and keyless ignition systems, all becasue 'merkins don't like to spoil the cut of their trousers with unsightly keys...
"Sorry, something smells a bit off. Why did he have the keys to a car? Was the owner equally stupid and left the keys with the car or were the keys part of the loot from robbing the house?"
I think it's clear that he nicked them from the house.
"additional two counts of burglary of an occupied dwelling."
Oh man, I lived in St. Pete for 10 years, doing both mobile computer repair (mostly businesses and schools) as well as IT at a small private party college. To help understand the west central Florida population: the entire area was settled by folks from other parts of the US, who screwed up and needed to start over. What a strange, jacked up town. So glad to be gone.
