Just remember when reading these. The average person is stupid, and 50% of the world is more stupid than that.

The people who do things like punch windows and take phones are the stupid on the posters here. Don't be so fast to assume that you are a victim.

I would say it is anything but funny. If a man is angry enough to punch a window, what else would he do? John Townley is not exactly new to the police blotter. He has been in and out of jail and prison. I would think twice about brushing off people as “stupid”. A better used word would be dangerous.
