They’ll steal anything that’s not bolted down…

…Actually the bolts don’t seem to matter…

Blow-torch toting brothers stole a bridge in western Pennsylvania and scored over $5,000 by hawking the scrap metal, police said.

Benjamin Arthur Jones, 24, and Alexander Williams Jones, 25, both of New Castle, Pa., are accused of breaking up the 50-foot steel bridge with a blowtorch in September and selling 15 1/2 tons of its scrap mental.

Okay, I hate a thief. I’m on record as hating thieves. But (*snort*) you gotta admit (*chortle) that takes cojones

No brains – Pretty sure somebody’s gonna notice you suddenly acquired fifteen tons of salable scrap right around the time the bridge vanished – but lots of balls.

    The bridge cost $50,000. It was privately owned. Those thugs should swing.

    No, those thugs should have to repay the entire cost of building the bridge and have to work on the crew until the job is done. Then they should have to compensate the owner for any loss due to the absence of the bridge. And if they can’t do it in money, they should be required to do it in labor at minimum wage.

    Swinging does nothing but waste rope.

    There is a slaughter house in a nearby small town. Cattle gall stones are worth an incredible amount of money for some reason. There were $25K worth stolen from the slaughter house one day. A couple of days later a guy walks into the Post Office wanting to mail a package. The postmaster asks, “Whats in the package?” Our hero replies, “Cattle gall stones.” Guess who got a visit from the cops?

    Anon @6:50, I hear that.

    Can they swing afterward?

    After all, they’ve proven they’re unfit to live in human society.

    I won’t raise a hand to save them, Brass. Do as thou wilt.

To the stake with the heretic!
