    Another crime maybe not too well thought-out. “Whattaya mean we gotta cut the plastic off of 800′ of wire? And then the 18 ga wire will be worth $117.00? Dude, don’t ever call me with an idea like this again…” LOL

      Right on Bill…… hahahahaha….LMFAO. That must have been a real pain in the arse
      to load as well. Geezus, what a couple of bozos. AND, 21 & 33. These
      two idiots will NEVER amount to anything.

    Hi-tech wire stolen by a couple of clowns

    operating on low voltage.

      What in the hell did clowns ever do to you? Calling these clowns a couple of clowns is an insult to clowns, you clown.

        I resemble that remark, sir.

          Lol. Glad you have a sense of humor! You may be judging these two a little harshly. They may have a future in Augusta. The people we pay to run our government could very easily turn $20,000 worth of wire into $100 worth of scrap. My favorite is the clown who cut the copper oil lines off the tanks at a school in Machias and let 275 gallons of fuel run unto the ground to get the $2 worth of copper tubing. He is probably in the legislature now.

            $2 dollars is $2 dollars.

    They will serve some time and then go under the “safety net” that we have provided for them. That will form a base to support further crime and and reaping of state & federal benefits. While out they will have more children requiring futher support from those that actually pay taxes. If they manage to get a job ( or make up one such as child care with just enough income to qualify for maximum benifits) they will get a check from the Federal Government when they file “income taxes” for up to $8,000. They continue to steal from us and the police tell us when we call that they will write up a report but don’t have the resourses to come to you. That would include stealing $2,000 of copper pipe from property you own but did $20,000 or more damage. Some of the current politicians claim they are victims caused by “corporations” and they deserve all the taxpayer (whoever is left) benefits without any accountability. Arnachy is coming.

      … what?

    • Bill Cat

      Assume much? Sounds like a whole hatful of petty resentments right there, pally. LOL

        Resent stealing, yup. Resent those that derive scams to steal from program designed to help others such as tax credits (From EIC, child credits, for the poor to federal and state programs for businesses), yup. Resent the fact that my insurance will go up as a result of these thefts or some poor uninsured homeower is out thousands of dollars when they strip the home of pipes, yup. Petty & hateful? That is your opinion to which you are entitled.

        • Bill Cat

          Billy, you sure have mastered the sunny side of life, partner. LOL The type that’d get a gold watch and gripe about the color of the band. Just out of curiosity — do you approve of anything?

          • Anonymous

            Don’t see how you got to griping about a watch and not approving anything from resenting crime? That is a big leap. Crime is not the sunny side of life. Be assured it is sunny where I live. :-)

          • Bill Cat

            No doubt you’re sure you’re right when you think you’re right, Billy. Can’t have a battle of wits with an unarmed man, so I leave you to warm and happy days..

          • Bill Cat

            Billy, pardon my last response — too much coffee, I guess. LOL You’ve got a point and you have a right to it. Your original post seemed a bit self-righteous and handed down from a high horse — rubbed me the wrong way entirely. Crime is no joke, but it is part of life and not all of us choose to be rigid and inflexible in that law & order point of view. Enough said.

            We live to post another day.:-) Often what we interpret from an online post is not what the poster has intended.

      Obama won.

      Dems retook the State House.

      Get over it.

        Not concerned with which party has taken control or who has been elected. I am more concerned with the law politicians implement and the future we wil leave our children. Did you “get over it” when the Republicans took the State House or did you work to change things? I will continue to work to change things just as I have through every adminstration. When we have people willing to cause huge damage for a gain of a few bucks whether they are corporations,petty thieves, politicians etc I say we are in big trouble if we aren’t willing to speak up.

    That’s an arrestingly specific valuation: not $10,000, ten thousand AND TWENTY dollars.

    Copper and metal thefts really tick me off, for some reason. When people steal your basic “stuff” that you have around the house or business, then we are going downhill fast. These people are striking at the heart of orderly society.
