You’re banned from confessing on YouTube!

By Mark O’Neill

A Leeds man, whom British police have described as “the city’s dumbest criminal” has been banned from boasting about his crimes on YouTube.

Andrew Kellett uploaded more than 80 videos to YouTube in which he boasted about what he had done and how he had done it. In effect he confessed to everything and did the police’s job for them.

But in an unbelievable move, the magistrates court in Leeds has now given Kellett an ASBO order (Anti-Social Behaviour Order) in which he is banned from “showing unlawful activities” online.

Basically, he is being told to stop confessing!    If he confesses one more time online, he will go to jail.

  1. The stupidity that some people posses, can be quite astounding (note : frightening) sometimes.

    • I have no idea but these days in the UK, it takes a serious crime, a serial offender or a dangerous person to go to prison.

      I know a few people who tend to get on the wrong side of the law on a regular basis and despite everything they do, they get a slap on the wrist, a fine, and they are back on the street again.

      It's probably a lot to do with the fact that their crimes are considered relatively minor (public disturbances, getting into a bar fight, etc). The prisons are seriously overcrowded so judges don't want to send someone to prison unless they have to.
