The Smartest Dummy by Mark Anthony Given

 Just remember if we get caught your deaf and I don't speak English...

          THE SMARTEST guy I ever met in prison committed the stupidest crime you ever heard of. Late twenties, long brown scragglyy facial hair and kind of big, and although I never seen him speaking to anyone else, everybody pretty much left him alone.  He came to me to help him get his state time that he already did to count toward his federal sentence. That never works.  You can run your state time with your federal time but you can't credit any time in state custody to a federal sentence.  I seen he was like me in that I always had my head in a big fat text book.  I was reading landmark United States Supreme Court cases and he was studying math books. String Theory, Fuzzy Logic, Fermat's Last Theorem, Chaos Theory, I threw every bump in the road at him and he knew them all.  For all the school smarts he had he was still the dumbest criminal you ever heard of.  I guarantee you this is the dumbest federal crime you ever heard of and the only way I knew about it is he let me look at his PSI (Presentence Investigation Report). 
          THE SMARTEST DUMMY you never heard of according to the government's presentence investigation report came from a prominent family in North Florida, went to FSU, stood to inherit a small family fortune and his whole life unraveled with one hit of the Dragons Dick:  crack. Just hired by American Express in the IT department and in a matter of weeks lost it all, went to state prison for several years and when I met him in MOHAWK UNIT at FCI Marianna in north Florida in the late nineties, he was finishing a sentence for armed robbery of a federally insured bank in West Palm Beach.
          What warrant his placement in the World's Dumbest Criminals is the manner and means in which he executed his devious plan:  He drove up to the Drive Thru Teller and passed a note saying:  THIS IS A ROBBERY!  Give me all the money or I will shoot!" SWISHHH, SWOOSH the vacuum tube arrived at the teller inside and followed by a long silence....  I asked him what happened?  He said he set there until the place was swarming with cops and they ordered him out of the car with a dozen guns pointing at him....  Next to stealing the tags off of mattresses or sniffing bicycle seats at the local elementary school, that's a stupid ass crime...

My Appointment With the Devil by Mark Anthony Given


We may not pay Satan reverence, for that would be indiscreet,  but we can at least respect his talents. -Mark Twain
  MID-THIRTIES I found myself alone at a lonely interstate rest area in Florida in the middle of the night, having driven from  New Orleans for the last several days, I went from rest area to rest area withdrawing from Methadone, starving but couldn't eat.  Dying of thirst, but couldn't drink.  Throwing up, diarrhea, high temperature and worst of all, I couldn't sleep.  Beg for sleep for three or four hours and sleep for ten minutes and start all over again.  I was at probably the lowest point of my life.  And I still had an appointment with the devil.    And he's going to be here in a minute.....          THE DEVIL IS REAL.  I met him.  Twice.  I know you're not going to believe this but I don't care.  I ain't got a reason to lie to y…

I BUSTED OUT OF every juvenile home they placed me in when I was a kid. Industry, The New York State School for Boys, fifteen miles south of Rochester, New York where my parents were, was the largest juvenile reformatory in the Empire State. I thought of this escape hundreds of times throughout the years as the seminal moment I became bad. Not real bad mind you, but bad none the less. Still thinking I was Matt Helm or James Bond, I plo…

The One Man Crime Wave by Mark Anthony Given


TO HAVE ONCE been a criminal is no disgrace.
To remain a criminal is the disgrace. ―Malcolm X #malcomx ______________________________________________________
I JUST ROBBED the Hancock Bank & Trust in downtown Gulfport, Mississippi with my trusty twenty-cent Bic and blank checks I found on doorsteps out of Another Hot Grand (link below) and was driving down beautiful Highway 90 in West Biloxi Beach with patches of condos and now casinos and plenty of places to pull over and enjoy the sea breeze and smell of seafood.  They had almost completed the I-110 interchange linking Interstate 10 with the Gulf of Mexico.  Right where the cars are discharged onto Highway 90, is the original/first high rise ten or twelve stories upscale apartment building.  The owner lived on the top and I was told he won the building in a poker game.  It was said to have been built to withstand any hurricane and you can see it still standing after Katrina. …
