HAMN HITES HITMAN FOR MURDER, LEAVES GLOWING GOOGLE REVIEW, NOW UNDER ARREST
Sometimes there just isn’t any more room in my vaguely diminishing capacity to suffer even more disenchantment with just how stupid people can be. And this time, I appear to be totally depleted. Because for one, we’re talking about murder. And two, we’re talking about the cowardice of a man who simply paid a hitman to do it for him. And, of course, there’s a third thing. The first two are bad enough, though they don’t hearken in any particular way towards stupidity, but instead damnation. But when the cops place you under arrest for leaving a positive Google Review for the hitman who did the deed(s)? Yeah, now you’re getting it. And you can’t fathom that level of stupidity either.
WAS LEAVING A HITMAN A GOOGLE REVIEW A CASE OF A GUILTY CONSCIOUS? OR SOMETHING ELSE?
So a shrink would say that this is likely a case of the subconscious desperately seeking a way to get caught. And while I don’t know much of anything beyond these details about the now under arrest Erik Maund, I’d have to call bullshit on that psychological assessment. To me, leaving a golden Google Review for your hitman for murderous services rendered is more of a juvenile strut of celebration. And while I’m old enough to still find online reviews much less than a reflex myself, I can’t say this is just a generational thing. It’s just plain old-fashioned stupidity beyond my ken to appreciate. Like, ever.
HITMAN HIRING PENULTIMATE STUPIDITY AND NOW UNDER ARREST IS ONE ERIK MAUND
So it was that Austin police placed Maund under arrest when they got wind of the hired murders after the fact. Yes, murders. Maund paid a group of professional killers to take out his ex-girlfriend as well as her (other) former boyfriend, Holly Williams and William Lanway, respectively. They were found dead a year ago in Nashville, Tennessee. After the dirty deeds were done (presumably not dirt cheap), Maund went and posted a positive Google Review for one of the (alleged, to date) hitman’s security companies, Speartip.
Well, crime doesn’t pay, as the saying goes. Well, the hitmen got paid, yes. And their client’s depthless stupidity now has them all facing life in prison. Now I’m headed for a stiff drink and another listen to AC/DC’s Greatest Hits. I’ll start with Hell’s Bells.
