There have been two local youth sports concession stands broken into in my area and it just makes me so ANGRY! My grandkids, as you may know if you've read some of my past discussions, are involved in sports including Little League baseball and midget football and I know how hard the kids, the coaching staffs, and the parents work to make these programs fun and successful. I've done some grumbling about fund raising projects but I know everyone involved puts lots of time and work into these projects and I've worked the concession stand myself to help out even though I'm "just" a gram. It's just so disgusting that some low-life would steal from kids like this! In each case there was equipment such as microwaves, coolers, friers, slow cookers and various utensils plus canned and bottled drinks and some frozen food and candy. Luckily there was no cash to take! Now these poor kids and their parents and coaches have to start all over again to get new equipment because the concession stands are someting they really need to raise funds for their equipment and uniforms for the participants. Anyone else have a similar tale of scum of the earth types like this stealing from kids or from some charitable organization? Annie

Yes, anniepa, I have heard of a couple of such incidents happening like that in my town over the past couple of years, and it is appalling. Ther are those among us who don't care who they take from, be it kids, the elderly, even the poor. It is just a sad mark on our society and I don't see an end to it any time soon.

Ugh! That is sick. I hope they catch the clowns responsible for it. Now as for other things like this, I do remember a few cases of people stealing from the Salvation Army bell ringer pots. /facepalm. Sigh... -_-
