Sorry DeltaFoxtrot, I don't buy your excuses for this crime. They obviously had
enough money for equipment to cut off the statue. They obviously had enough
money for a truck to haul it away. People steal things because they lack moral
integrity. If the economy were good, they would just steal better things.
The only way to stop things like this is to fix our economy. Put people back to
work and get the prices of metals down. Copper is going around 3.20 because of
all this economy mess. That's why people steal these things. There have been
reports of people melting down old pennies because the copper in them is worth
far more than the 1 cent face value.If we don't fix the economy
don't expect things to get any better.
How low can you go? Ask the people who stole the statue. Whether it be from a
cemetery, autistic center, blind center, park etc. it does not matter. Wrong is
wrong. I truly believe that some of the recycle places are not being honest when
taking recycled metals from people. I know that they say they do but not all of
them, I believe are being honest. Hey, if they don't take metals from someone
then they lose also. This needs to be stopped and it needs to be hit from all
sides. This is beyond disgusting.
