12 Security Footage Heroes

Surveillance cameras help police catch bad guys all the time, but more importantly, they help store owners upload the most hilarious acts of the dumbest bad guys known to man. The cops can deal with hunting down those masked (sometimes unmasked) wrongdoers, arresting them, and filing all that paperwork while we just get to sit back and laugh it up. They’re just the perfect guilt-free laugh. Normally, laughing at someone falling over, hitting their head, or dropping trou would be considered “punching down,” but we can freely howl at these dummies since they were committing a crime!

Coyote attempt their dastardly schemes only to be blown to bits by their own hair-brained contraptions. Hilarious. And now, thanks to countless security cameras and the internet, we get 12 of these real-life bozos caught in criminally hilarious acts.
