No, This Guy Might Be the Worst Person in the World
Do not be surprised if this downtown Dallas crime story begins to sweep the nation -- hell, it's already up on a Minnesota NBC affiliate's Web site. It's a crime made for TV: Just before midnight yesterday, an 18-year-old ROTC cadet on his way home to Mississippi suffered a seizure in front of the downtown Greyhound station, during which a man walked over not to help the kid, but to ... yup, pick his pocket. And a surveillance camera caught the whole thing -- including the arrest yesterday, when Frank White returned to the scene of the crime. --Robert Wilonsky
