The Economic Crisis Makes People Desperate...

...and just plain stupid.

Meet Nazim Medzhidov. He is the manager an outlet of the bargain supermarket chain, "Kopeika," located in SW Moscow. He is 33 years old, and he is facing up to 12 years in prison. Why?

Well, according to the Moscow Times, on March 3 robbery, Nazim robbed his own store, which could have worked out, but Nazim put a gun to his own employee — who had no trouble recognizing him, because Nazim didn't think to wear a mask of any sort. Nazim was trying to get away with 4 million rubles ($116,000).

Congratulations, Nazim, for somehow not receiving a Darwin Award in your 33 years of life. And good luck with Russian prison!
