And used a Camaro instead of a Ford.
If you’ve ever watched documentaries, read books, or simply done research on the Bonnie and Clyde story then you’ll know one very pivotal thing about their adventures. Essentially, Bonnie and Clyde were narcissistic criminals who murdered and pillaged everywhere they went and eventually got what they deserved. Well, recently there has been a case in which two lovers engaged in some highly dangerous and unlawful behavior leading many to draw connections between the couples. Now having been caught, the two are facing hefty sentencing. But what exactly caused the media to call them the modern Day Bonnie and Clyde?
It all started on March 29 of 2022, when Andrew Poindexter and Erann Ohse, residents of Fredericksburg and King George County, for some reason or another, were pretty mad at Ohse’s ex-boyfriend which is why they decided to carry out an act that was truly horrifying. Adorned with black ski masks, the pair loaded up some handguns and extra magazines in anticipation of their crime. Once there, they attempted to break down the door but ultimately were unsuccessful.
You would think that after being unsuccessful at breaking down the door the couple might have simply given up, likely resulting in no charges being pressed. However, these individuals seem to be pretty stupid. After firing 10 shots into the bedroom window of the ex-boyfriend, and injuring a girl by shooting her in the shoulder, the couple took off on a 120 mile an hour cop chase in their Chevy Camaro, and managed to escape. However, they were later found standing around outside of their car in a cul-de-sac in Hanover county.
There’s one simple reason to disagree with the characterization of these dumbasses as the modern day Bonnie and Clyde. That is, simply, Bonnie and Clyde got away with it for more than a few hours and were at least smart enough to stay on the move from time to time. These two got away from the police after committing some serious crimes and didn’t even bother hiding. Nowadays, they’ve pleaded guilty to their charges and will likely face some serious penalties, especially since their main charge was attempted murder and secondary charges including evading police. However, the main thing that we’ve learned from this case has got to be that you just can’t fix stupid.
