Some ideas should just register as idiotic the second they pop into your head.
For example, take Michael Turley's alleged idea to have his nephew run around one of the most populous cities in America pretending to be a terrorist.
-Michael Turley Allegedly Put His Own Nephew Up to the Task of Pretending to Be a Terrorist
-Michael Turley Wanted to "Test" Phoenix Cops -- With a Kid Dressed as a Terrorist Running Around With a Fake Grenade Launcher
For some reason, Turley went through with this plan, according to police, and it resulted in this YouTube video.
Turley now faces several criminal charges.
