Stupid Criminal Commits Bank Robbery in Front of Uniformed Cop!

Bad Idea: robbing a bank
Really Bad Idea: robbing a bank without a weapon
Priceless: robbing a bank without a weapon, right in front of a uniformed officer!

Add this to our ever-growing list of stupid criminals on Neatorama:

Langston Robins, 21, is accused of walking past an off-duty officer and then trying to hold up the Metropolitan Bank on Wednesday in Little Rock.

"As far as we know, the robber didn't have a weapon. He just walked up with a note and laid it on the counter, right in front of the uniformed officer," Little Rock police spokesman Lt. Terry Hastings tells KATV-TV.

Police took Robins into custody after a foot pursuit.

"I just don't know why he didn't see a uniformed police officer standing basically right in front of him," Hastings tells the Associated Press. "My guess is he's just not the brightest of people."

Here's the video:

I find it odd how calmly he reacts when the cop first apprehends him, I'd have expected someone to be so stressed out that they'd jump six feet in the air when touched unexpectedly in a situation like that. I wonder what his mental state was like through all of that? I'm not at all suggesting that "oh, he was clearly on drugs," just wondering if maybe he was -so- mentally freaked by what he was doing that much of his brain just, I dunno, shut off or something? Maybe that might explain how he could have -looked- directly at the cop earlier on in the clip and yet still gone through with his attempt?
