  • How low can they go?

    My backyard neighbor's nephew, aged 17, died of leukemia, quite suddenly. While his grieving parents where at the funeral parlor thieves broke into their home stealing everything they could get their filthy hands on, including the poor mother's wedding ring. They apparently consult the announcement pages of the newspapers for deaths and find the addresses of the next of kin, who they know will be out...

      It sounds like it's time to place some fake announcements and set up a sting operation.

          That's sick...and it was so close to your place, so be careful yourself.

            It's been a long time since I heard anyone say that.

              Sorry to hear that. :crap:

              Here in the south, a couple of friends stays at the homeplace during the funeral. Traditional, for reasons other than security, but it works for that, too. My now-85YO mom always took her Smith & Wesson AirLite Ti. :boxer:

                That's badass... but a bit of a kick for an old wrist.

                      This reminds me of an incident about three years ago. I was at the wedding of one of my friends near Washington, DC. During the wedding, someone entered the room in the church where the bride and the bridesmaids kept their purses and robbed them of all of their cash. We didn't realize what happened until the drive to the reception where we had to stop to board a ferry and we realized that none of the bridal party had any money for the ferry trip. Fortunately all the groomsmen (in which I was one) had our wallets with us at all times and we paid for the ferry.

                      I don't think the church ever discovered who was responsible.
