There are a lot of stupid people in this world. Some of them are stupid by nature, and some of them learn stupid over a period of time.
Charles Akin Rempe goes above and beyond the stupid. He’s not a person you want carrying a gun.
It sounds like a painful and tricky combination – a fish-hook gets stuck in your bottom while someone is trying to break into your home. So Charles Akin Rempe, 52, of Frederick, Maryland, fired several shots inside his home to attract the attention of police.
Rempe feared someone was trying to break into his house and got the hook stuck when he was trying to flee the perceived danger, police said. A loaded .45 semiautomatic pistol was found inside the house, a Frederick Police Department news release said.
Um, if Rempe had a loaded .45, why did he need to flee the alleged burglar?
