Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The Knucklehead of the Day award

For the second day in a row, we have another less than brilliant criminal. Today's winner is Anthony R Roberts of Hialeah Florida. He raped a woman in Davie Florida this week but also had his victim make out a check to him. Mr. Roberts was arrested after he tried to cash the check. What a Knucklehead, he now faces life in prison.

Davie -- Police say a man who broke into an apartment and raped a woman at gunpoint Wednesday night was so brash he forced his victim to write him a check for $1,400 -- in his own name.

Officers arrested Anthony R. Roberts minutes after the crime at a check-cashing store two miles from his victim's home. He had ordered the woman to make out a check to "Anthony Roberts" and write on the memo line that it was "for electrical work," according to a police report.

"I don't know what the guy was thinking," said Davie police spokesman Lt. Bill Bamford. "I don't know if he thought that he put her in that much fear, ... [but] to walk into a check-cashing store like nothing happened, like she paid him for a job. That's one of the lowest forms of life."

When Roberts, 25, presented the check at the Check Cashing Store on South University Drive, a clerk got suspicious. The clerk called the phone number on the check to make sure it was legitimate.

A police officer investigating the rape answered the call at the woman's apartment. Police cruisers swarmed the Check Cashing Store, and Roberts was taken into custody after a short foot chase.

The Hialeah man is being held without bail on a host of charges, including sexual battery with a weapon, kidnapping, home invasion and aggravated assault.
