Australian woman attempts to steal a car

Car theft is not uncommon. In fact it happens everywhere in the world. Now the reason why one car theft has caught international attention is due to the hilarious nature of the lack of logical planning from the would be thief. A woman from Ballarat, Australia, located 110 km NW of Melbourne, rented a car for a day in February 2016 and then decided to never return it. Whether it was intentionally planned or not to never return the car is not for me to judge. But the logic that she attempted to steal a car from a rental business, which requires a valid driver's license and credit card that has all her personal information on it is illusive to me. Car thefts normally operate with the conditions of secrecy, of trying to leave no evidence of being identified, but leaving your home address at a car theft scene is literally the dumbest thing you can do. And to add oil to the fire, the woman was seen throwing a rock at a police car and then tripped on a bin while trying to run away only to resist police arrest when caught. She later damaged the police car door by kicking it and later hit an officer in the face. Her lawyer stated his client only had one minor prior and was not using drugs. She pleaded guilty to the theft in addition to four other charges which includes resisting arrest and criminal damage. Her punishment, 10 months of community corrections order without conviction, with orders to complete 50 hours of community work and instructions to complete programs aimed at reducing re-offending. I don't feel I have the right to judge the leniency or severity of the punishment, but I will say that she is lucky she committed the crime in Australia.
