WTH is wrong with someone that they would rob a meals on wheels volunteer employee?

Some people have no shame, no morals, no ethics and no self worth. Lets catch them and put them in the center of downtown tied to posts for people to throw things at...mainly bricks, knives and manure.

When are we gonna have enough of this crap?

We sure can't focus enough on this.Stay away from areas of the city.Thugs don't care that people are taking care of there elders. It's a sorry state of affairs when they do this in this city or anywhere else.
