There is a fine line between guts and stupidity. Stupidity is much more entetaining.
Thanh Viet Jeremy Cao of Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif. pleaded guilty of filing 22 false claims against a number of harmless people. Among these harmless victims were: SEC attorneys, U.S. District Court Judges, U.S. District Court Magistrate Judges, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of California, Assistant U.S. Attorneys, U.S. Secret Service special agents and special agents of the IRS. Each lien alleged that the lien victims were “debtors” of Cao for hundreds of millions of dollars.
Why didn’t he just file some against professional assassins? He would have gotten more attention.
