Dumbass award goes to....

A woman walked into a Wal-Mart and tried to buy several iPads with her EBT card. Twice. Food stamps for iPads. Tracy Browning, a 38-year-old Louisville, Kentucky woman, allegedly attempted to purchase the Apple tablets using an Electronic Benefit Transfer card, then assaulted store employees and took off with the merchandise when it didn’t work. She was arrested when she tried to do the same thing at another Wal-Mart a few hours later.

According to Louisville police, Browning had previously been banned from all Wal-Mart locations for other incidents with the discount retailer. She’s been charged with robbery, shoplifting, and trespassing, and has been booked into the Louisville Metro jail. No word on what those prior incidences were, or if they involved theft or fancy electronics.

Please, let this be enough to get her banned from getting FS any more...  People like this don't need my help that badly.

But, if she is in jail, then who is taking care of her kids? 

The woman is a criminal, and has not one ounce of sense.  She needs a "handler" (for lack of a better word.)

I hate these kind of stories. I think it is very anti- food stamp bs...and no I am not a fs recipient.
