Stupid criminals hold up 'live radio broadcast'

This one I just couldn't pass up for blogging. Just how dumb can one be? Would love to see video for this stunt!

Two would-be robbers in Brazil, who must surely qualify for the title of the worldÆs dumbest criminals, burst into the studio of Rßdio Verde e Rosa in Alto Paranß at 1.30 am on Sunday morning. Romualdo Fernandes, 35, and a 17-year-old teenager demanded money, but apparently didnÆt realise that their victim, Tiago Amorin da Silva, was talking live on the air at the time. Over 100 listeners called the police, who immediately went to the radio station and arrested them.
