Schmuck of the Week

Brandon Campbell, who robbed homes wearing GPS monitor, convicted due to pop-can DNA

Last November, when we first wrote about Brandon Campbell, we declared him an ideal Schmuck of the Week candidate. Too bad news had broken about his moronic crimes -- robbing homes wearing a GPS monitor -- long before Friday, when our latest Schmucks are announced.
