I have long favored a Stupidity Law. Whenever someone does something stupid not covered under another law, authorities could use the Stupidity Law to prosecute. It may be too late to stop Donald Trump, Justin Bieber or Kanye West, but it might be a deterrent in the future. We can only hope. Here are some incidents, which might fall under the Stupidity Law:
South Yorkshire Police (England) posted that someone crashed their new Ferrari 430 in a single vehicle collision within one hour of purchasing it. According to the post, the driver "Lost control, went airborne & burst into flames." The car was a Scuderia, one of just 499 in the world, worth $288,000.
In Memphis, a rapist left his dentures behind at the crime scene with his name written inside. Unfortunately, it was placed in a rape kit and forgotten for more than a decade until last summer. They reopened the kit and ended up arresting the assailant for rape. Violation of the stupidity Law should be added to the charges.
An unidentified person set up a gun display in a Walmart store telling customers to "Own the school year like a hero." Walmart said it was a prank.
An Army general sent sexist texts to the wife of another soldier. He was suspended. Have we learned nothing since Anthony Weiner?
U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price used costly private charter planes for government business. He later resigned under pressure.
