Deputy Yoandy Miranda told deputies that he left town for a couple of days and when he got home, he noticed someone had entered his locked bedroom.
He said someone was also inside his patrol car, but nothing was stolen from the home or car.


And he didn't immediately suspect the nephew?

Lima was arrested and charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle, grand theft of a firearm, openly carrying prohibited weapon, theft of law enforcement equipment from an emergency vehicle, burglary of a conveyance, armed burglary of a dwelling, impersonating a law enforcement official, and giving a false name to a law enforcement officer.

Woah!  No where in the article did they say he also had the uncle's gun until this part.  Shouldn't the gun be locked up separately??  How does this nephew have keys to everything???

Bonus points if he used the name James "Sonny" Crockett.

The car keys are most surprising, did the uncle not take his keys with him when he left? Are the patrol car's keys kept separate for some reason? Maybe it's just me but I take my keys everywhere.

Regarding the gun charges, it's possible they are referring to guns that might have been stowed in the vehicle too, not just in the guys room. Patrol vehicles will often have a long gun of some sort in the back.

C. He goes around solving crimes and arresting bad guys with his wisecracking partner, a 70 year-old Asian man he helped escape from a nursing home, played by Jackie Chan. Then he gets the car and uniform back just in time before his uncle gets home. I call him the "Weekend Cop," in theaters March 2018.

No reason to take your car keys with you on vacation if you're traveling without it. Especially if you're going swimming.

I guess, I just never see a reason to separate keys from my key ring. Maybe if you carried too many?

I am sooo conflicted on this one.  On the one hand, 18 year old kid does something stupid without thinking and gets busted.  If he has no priors, I'd give him a bit of a slap on the wrist.  < a year in jail plus a ton or two of community service.  On the other hand the laws he broke are very serious so maybe he deserve multiple felony convictions and a 10+ years in the slammer.  But really those laws have people with malice aforethought and nefarious motives in mind while I'm convinced this was a 'kid' just goofing around and making some bad (really really bad) choices without fully realizing the seriousness and possible consequences so sentencing him the way these laws on paper indicate is over the top in this case.  On the other hand, how freakin' stupid can you be?!  My gawd, someone could have been seriously injured or killed, possibly him.  Darwin must have been all busy with hookers and blow that night, 'cause there ain't no other reason that kid is still walking this earth.

I admit I feel a bit torn too. I mean I remember thinking differently at that age, but then again I never ever would have considered doing something like this. Is it that different for some people, that they really can't tell how bad an idea some things are? Should laws even take it into account? It's hard to ignore how seriously bad it could have gone.

Four unrelated thoughts:

I don't see anything about traffic stops, so I think subby gets 3 points off for insufficiently clever exaggeration.

Can you really pass as a Florida Cop with a neckbeard like that?

Props to Deputy Miranda for not covering his nephew on this.

What happened to the subjects at the convenience store? Hopefully, they were released with no charges and an apology unless there was some independent evidence of what happened.  Seems like this could fark up the charges regardless.

FTA:

He said he stole Miranda's patrol car, dressed in his MCSO uniform and conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle.
Lima told detectives that he picked up a friend who rode with him in the patrol car and that his friend recorded video of the traffic stop.


He's going to need a good lawyer, they've got video of the traffic stop.

Should laws take the mindset and intentions of the accused into account?  Yes, I think they should.  More importantly I think western jurisprudence does take this into account.  That's why nearly every law on the books has a range of possible punishments, not just a single 'you do this you always get punishment x'.  That's so judges can take into account such things as the person's intentions and mindset, and the actual consequences of the actions.  That's why a person caught driving drunk doesn't get punished to the same extent as someone who drives drunk, crashes and kills someone.  I think that point of view needs to be considered in this case.  Yes, things could have gone horribly, horribly wrong. But, they did not in fact go horribly. horribly wrong.  In fact, no one might have been the wise of the kid had been more careful in covering up his tracks back once he got the car and the uniform back home.  This kid needs *some* serious punishment, but the decades in prison that come with the laundry list of things he's been charged with just don't seem right.  I would really lean towards some short jail time plus a very long probation and a large amount of community service, and some kind of fine.

Yeah, it has to be significant, but not enough to ruin his life. If he actually did get like 10+ years, he's not coming back out as a productive member of society in all likelihood.

Probably he meant no real harm, but was just extraordinarily dumb.

Why don't we, as a society, have a "you're too stupid to be allowed to coexist with the rest of us" threshold?

We have it for evil, but not for stupid. I think this is a mistake, and that we should definitely have it for stupid as well. Anybody THIS dumb is completely farking useless, and always will be.
