    I’d love to read about these scumbags getting electrocuted while stealing wires.

    When I worked for GE the boys with Georgia Power and Alabama Power would send us pictures of geniuses that thought that a pair of linemen’s plyers had enough insulation for them to cut cables as a power substation. The results were impressive! Limbs blown or burned off. Total bodies charred. Like they say “Stupid is as stupid does!”
