Gosh, this is a rich and hearty serving of stupid:

Retired police chief John Comparetto was attending the meeting of 300 officers when he was allegedly held up at gunpoint in the men's toilets.

He handed over money and a phone but then he and some colleagues gave chase as the suspect tried to flee in a taxi.

They arrested a 19-year-old man over the incident near Harrisburg.

Mr. Comparetto described the suspect as "probably the dumbest criminal in Pennsylvania."

Actually, chief, he may be the dumbest in all of these United States.

The punch-line to this story is just beautiful ... wait for it ...

When a journalist asked the suspect for comment as he was led from court, he said: "I'm smooth."

He's smooth. And you thought George W. was America's dumbest criminal.
