2012 has been a year full of surprises, tragedies, good music and everything in between. From the presidential election to the shooting death of Trayvon Martin (and others like him), over the last 12 months Hip-Hop Wired has tried to offer our readers a variety of appealing news stories that run the gamut in subject matter, but it's always good to find a few ones to make you laugh.
It's this reason that we wanted to take a comical trip down memory lane and look at some of the dumbest criminals that's we've covered this year. Yes, the “bath salts” epidemic of 2012 (never forget) was pretty high on the crazy meter but after combing through a bevy of other news clips, we were able to unearth 10 more bizarre examples of criminal life riddled with struggle.
So, before we can officially usher in 2013, and in honor of the first installment of our 2012 Hip-Hop Wired Struggle Awards, check out some of our favorite “Cmon Son: Criminal Struggle” nominees.
