Criminal activityI received this disturbing email from our neighborhood group list today:
Who are these people who are stealing from those who are already down?
Stealing is a crime, but the penalty depends largely on what is stolen and how much it costs. Thus, under the law, stealing an automobile is a different violation than stealing cable television. And stealing a candy bar carries a much lower penalty than stealing millions of dollars from the company pension fund.
Stealing of this type has a special name: looting. And looters, in my humble opinion, should be shot on the spot.
