    Copper Criminals Circling The Drain

    Dozens of vans have been stolen in search of the metal. Once stolen, the van’s contents are stripped to take to the scrap metal yard. After the thieves stash the cash, they leave the van, often in the heart of Liberty City.The owner of Island Plumbing, Luis Bergouignan, has had seven of his vans stolen in the last few months. He said after the copper; they go for the tools and equipment.
    “We’re losing about $10,000 worth of equipment. They are probably getting a thousand at most. It’s quick cash to them, whatever they can pick up for it, that’s what they get,” said Bergouignan.

    Juan Reyes, another employee at Island Plumbing agreed.
    “Bottom line -its people that feel that it’s easier to steal than go out and work for it,” Reyes said. “It kills us, that’s the bottom line, it kills us.”
    Welcome to the new America that put Obama, and his policies back in office. This is the mentality of the people in today's society.

    Endemic of todays reality in Obama nation is this from the article...

    Despite catching the thieves red-handed, those responsible received no jail time. What angers Bergouignan and Reyes most is the impact these thefts have on their company.

    Crime exists: Obama's fault. Theft is a new development of the liberal world, it certainly hasn't existed since, you know, always.

    Darn rights

    I blame Obama for the theft of man hole covers in Calgary, copper pipes from many construction sites. Even the theft of the power lines for the trains in the UK

    It is all Obama's fault

    Crime never existed under GWB, theft was none existant. Jails were empty, and the US was a wonderland
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metal_theft#United_States

    Cities across the United States have become targets for metal thieves. Manhole cover thefts increased dramatically between 2007 and 2008, with Philadelphia as one of the hardest hit targets. Other cities dealing with this trend include Chicago, Greensboro, North Carolina, and Long Beach, California.[43]

    Copper wire thefts are also becoming increasingly common in the U.S. With copper prices at $3.70 a pound as of June 2007, compared to $0.60 a pound in 2002, people are increasingly stealing copper wire from telephone and power company assets. Gangs have been created, a black market for copper wire has emerged, and men even have been killed in power plants while trying to obtain copper wire.[44] Other sources of stolen copper include railroad signal lines, grounding bars at electric substations, and even a 3000 pound bell stolen from a Buddhist temple in Tacoma, Washington, which was later recovered.[45]

    Obama must expand the Federal government until he can have direct control of the Miami Police Department!

    Yep, yep....go ahead and yuk it up...This is the new normal...Can't even call a plumber without an armed guard to watch the truck because of people stealing it, then when they get caught red handed, they serve NO JAIL TIME. That's just wonderful...I know, they have it tough because of "the man".... It's hard out there because of the evil 1% forcing them to steal instead of just stroking them a check for breathing....Or better yet, they are just misguided, lost OWS'ers that were tired of ****ting on cop cars so they thought they'd build themselves a bathroom....

    What a crock.

    Nothing bad under Obama.....I get it.

    The reason people are laughing at you is you posted stupid ****. This stuff has been going on forever. My dad used to bitch that if he left the back of his work truck unlocked all the wire was gone, and this was back 30 years ago....

    The fact that you want to blame everything you see on Obama is not just hilarious, but kinda sad and revealing.

    Good job! Bitch about Obama not only not doing something you would disapprove of, but because you imagine he might have, even though you have no evidence to base that imagination on.
