After this shoplifter in Illinois gets busted stealing from a grocery store, he makes things much worse for himself by causing a crazy scene.

Make Arrest Much Worse By Causing A Ruckus After Being Busted

I believe for many criminals, things could've been much better if they were smart enough to quit while they were ahead. For example, if you get busted committing a crime, do yourself a favor and quit while you're ahead. Suck it up like an adult and don't make a scene. If you cause a ruckus, it's just going to get you into more trouble.

According to, 

The incident occurred at a Jewel grocery store in Homewood, Illinois. A shoplifter was busted by employees for trying to steal merchandise. The value was about $130 worth of goods. Instead of taking responsibility like a grown-up and getting through the problem easily. This dumb criminal decided his stupid crime was good enough to fight for. That was definitely the wrong decision.

Once he was caught stealing, the suspect started to threaten the store employees. He grabbed a garbage can and whipped at the security. As the police started to take him away, he began fighting the officers. During the brawl, he tore down a floral display on purpose. He told police that he was carrying a weapon and threatened to shoot people with his gun. If you haven't noticed, he's just making things more difficult for himself.
