Today's award goes to no less than twenty gang-bangers, rappers and idiots in Houston.
In March, two rappers, Emekwanem Biosah Jr, A.K.A. Maxo Kreme, and Warren Brown, A.K.A. NFL Cartell Bo, had a run-in with police while filming a rap video at Lakewood Park.
The rappers were filming at the park, which is next to Hillard Elementary School, at about the time school was being let out. Some students made it into the video.
Also in the video were about a dozen loaded guns, some of them stolen, according to police. The guns were being used as props and the extras holding the weapons were all documented street gang members and rappers, according to police.
When police arrived at the park, most of the people ran, leaving the weapons behind, according to police.
Some of them had open warrants and were arrested on the spot, police said.
Drugs were also found, police said.
The video was released two months later and has about 2 million views on YouTube.
Police said they used the video to track down and identify everyone in the video who was holding a weapon.
. . .
As of Monday, 11 of the suspects are either in state or federal custody. Nine suspects remain wanted for numerous open warrants.

Nothing like providing video evidence of your own crimes to the police, is there? I won't bother to post their video here, but if you're interested, it's available on YouTube. It opens with what appears to be footage of the police securing some of the aspiring rap "artists".
