    Man electrocuted in botched copper wire theft, police say - CNN.com

    They didn't read the section of the manual where it says, "Caution, stealing electrical wiring out of abandoned buildings can result in getting the shock of a lifetime."

    When I worked for a power company I heard of more than one person having to be removed from poles that were electrocuted while trying to steal copper from overhead power lines that were still energized. I also had to do a lot of investigating accidents for the legal department. Some of the cases I helped with you would not believe and were Darwin cantidates for sure.

I see the power of bottom feeder griding up now. The tax payer are going to be shock when they find out how much we are going to be burnt. His wife wired out and could not shunt her mouth. O well.... at least he can't upload anymore wire nuts.

    Happens around SPFLD. IL all the time and we have a very small Hispanic community. Has all to do with druggie thinking and not origin. That said if you grew up with out electricity it could be a new concept.

    I really is hard to drum up any sympathy for this couple. The only ones I feel for are the children, be they "anchor babies" or not.
