Japanese Boys Learn Crime Techniques From YouTube

Who says that the Internet doesn't teach kids things? On YouTube, there are "How to" videos for just about anything and everything under the sun. My favorite is "You Suck at Photoshop" (and I do too!).

Well, here's the story of two boys who have learned how to be criminals from YouTube. From Mainichi  News:

Two teenage boys who broke into cars by mimicking techniques posted on video sharing site YouTube have been arrested, police said. A 15-year-old and a 16-year-old, students of a private high school offering correspondence courses, stand accused of theft. Both have reportedly admitted to the allegations, police said. According to the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD), the duo teamed up with another 16-year-old boy to break the window glass of two cars at a parking lot in Tokyo's Hachioji by burning them with a powerful lighter sometime between Sept. 12 and 13.

What the? OK... So I did a simple YouTube search for "How to Break Into a Car" and, sure enough, here is one (there were lots of them!).... Please don't try this at home!

Now, if there were just a Youtube video for "How to Win a Million Dollars" I'd be in Fat City!

I like the fact that the video advertises the very tool you need to break into a car...
