Absolutely, Newt. Yeah, I don't condone kidnapping nor rape, either. But the problem with the criminal who gets caught is his poor intelligence.
YouTube is full of people demonstrating just how stupid they can be. I won't give examples because there are just too many videos showing it.
On the other hand, there are a few crimes/criminals that DO demonstrate superior planning and skill. (I'm sure there is a bit of luck needed, too. There's risk involved with everything.)
Thirty years ago, in March 1990, 13 works of art were stolen from the Gardner Museum in Boston. The theft was valued at $500 million, and no arrests have been made and no works have been recovered.
My favorite mystery is interesting, too. An unidentified man hijacked a Boeing 727 between Portland and Seattle in 1971. You've heard of D. B. Cooper? He extorted $200,000 in ransom and parachuted to an uncertain fate. His case remains the only unsolved case of air piracy. Did he get away with it or did his parachute jump kill him? Where's the body?
Successful crimes are not always the result of great planning or skills. I would point to the O.J. Simpson insanity as a blatant case of a successful crime in spite of gross stupidity.
