World Dumbest Criminal Or World Dumbest Editor?

Security Today declared "World’s Dumbest Criminal of 2015 is Caught on Camera At ISC West"

There was only one problem. The 'crime' was staged.

It even looked staged:

The 'editor' noted:

"I had to watch the video twice to make sure I saw correctly. The thief had the audacity to wear his ISC West badge with his name and company he was representing. I don't think he'll be back anytime soon."

Unfortunately, he did not see correctly. It is always a good idea to verify before publicly accusing people of being criminals.

Pelco explained:

"We staged multiple incidents at ISC West so we could demonstrate how easy it is to find and export video from an incident using our new VideoXpert VMS. Because its UI is very intuitive, we allowed customers in the booth to see and drive real scenarios finding and exporting video from an incident. The clip we posted was the end result of one of those incidents (with some music and text to make it interesting)."

Well played, Pelco, well played.
