Common Sense Lesson #156

texting.jpgAt first, I kind of thought the Common Sense Lesson here was “don’t text message the cops when you’re looking to sell some drugs.” But it turns out that’s not actually the lesson. Yes, this is exactly what West Virginia’s Joshua Wayne Cadle did last week, mind you. The 19-year-old wanted to send a text message to friend, asking the friend if he was interested in buying some weed. But unbeknown to Cadle, his friend’s phone number has been reassigned to the State Police, so it was a state trooper who received the text. That trooper set up a meet and Cadle was arrested when he showed up.

So the Common Sense Lesson here is actually that you should always be sure that your Contacts List is up to date.
