The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Vases Stolen...

I know it's not the usual sort of crime I post about- but you're stuck reading it now.

Police are investigating 28 stolen vases, taken from the graves of Veterans in Crownsville Md.

I've just got to come out and say it, it's almost a sure thing that these are being taken to be sold off for scape metal- there's no other reason why any stranger would want them, and the chances of someone being related to all 28 vets is extremely slim.

So, they've clearly got some low life asshole over there in Md, disgracing the entire town, and bringing shame to generations of his/her/their families. I can only hope that guilt eats away at the responsible person, as well as some sort of nasty infection- starting with his/her/their appendages. The entire idea of showing such complete disrespect for someone who served to protect the rest of us is nothing short of unforgivable.

Cemetery officials said the vases started disappearing in April and that 28 of them have been taken.

"When they start stealing the vases, they start hurting the families. That's pilferage. All they wanted was money for these because they're not worth anything to anybody unless you cash them in for salvage or something," said Bob Hooper of the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs.
