"Here's a tip: If you steal a car and then rob a bank at gunpoint, don't brag about it on YouTube.

Unfortunately, this bit of seemingly obvious advice came too late for 19-year old Hannah Sabata, who was arrested on Nov. 28th.

Sabata, of Stromberg, Neb., faces charges in connection with the robbery of a Cornerstone Bank branch in Waco, Neb., on Nov. 27th, according to CBS news affiliate KOLN. What tipped off the police to the suspect? The text she sent to her ex and the YouTube video she posted, which featured her bragging about the crimes she'd committed and flashing a large wad of cash."*

It turns out that bragging about robbing a bank at gunpoint in a Youtube video is not the best idea. Understandably, Hannah Sabata, "The Chick Bank Robber," was arrested after being identified in her brag video. Why did she do this? What made her think it would work? Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss this bizarre crime story with comments from Lucas Lilieholm (Producer, TYT on Current).
