iPhone Robber May Need Real Life 'Jailbreak'
The iPhone may be one of the world's most popular smartphones, but that apparently doesn't translate to all of its owners being equally as "smart" as the phone. Case in point: Jerome Taylor, who discovered during this holiday weekend that the iPhone makes a terrible "weapon" with which to rob an Indian restaurant in Connecticut.
An incredible story widely reported over the Christmas holiday, Taylor donned a mask and entered the dining facility through a service entrance where he proceeded to demand money from the staff in back. Trying to pass off his iPhone as a gun, Taylor's efforts were thwarted when the cooks whipped out a fleet of kitchen knives and refused to give in to the demands for cash.
Surrounded by butcher-knife-wielding chefs, Taylor immediately backpedaled and revealed he was carrying the Apple smartphone, not a pistol. He went on to apologize repeatedly and admitted that he was in a tight spot and needed money for his child.
According to MSNBC, the restaurant staff "said they felt bad for Taylor and didn't want police to pursue charges." Authorities, however, showed little holiday spirit toward Taylor, who was promptly charged with interfering with police, first-degree criminal attempt to commit first-degree robbery and criminal attempt to commit sixth-degree larceny.

Tough ****. He should be fined to the full extent of the law. Too bad it's Xmas. Like for real, what are you saying? I should do that because my parents won't give me my tv. Frig man. Clearly he's not smart enough for a mcdonalds job because even ppl that work realize it's better to have a job instead of using Ur iPhone as a weapond lol. Dude if you can afford an 700$ phone then afford paying the months bill which is 70$ (for me). I can't even finish my sentence this guy is so dumb. And the workers go cry me a river. I bet b4 they realized it was a phone they were all scared and trippen. Screw this guy.

Apparently he wasn't in a tight enough spot to afford an iPhone.
This is why this world is doomed. Because of stupid people like this that inherit this planet.

What a moron. It's obvious once he knew he wasn't getting any money that he would say some lame thing about needing money for his kid just so he wouldn't get stabbed or go to jail. Police actually did the right thing lol, what a sucker!

Yes, I would mistake an iPhone for a gun on a normal day. He should have just printed out a picture of a gun and cut the shape out. Would've looked more like a weapon.
