Re: Thieves

I am also grateful that the thieves have been apprehended. It's been a long time coming.

I hope that we keep in mind that the police are very underpaid and sometimes
not paid at all. At times I wish there were a way to pay the existing police more,
directly from donations (as opposed to hiring private security).

Also (and this one is harder to get) almost all of the vacationers and most of the
part timers are seen by those with less (and there are a lot of them) as being very wealthy,
i.e. able to replace stolen goods easily. I don't know how much of the data loss on
stolen computers they relate to.

I am not trying to condone the stealing, just trying balance the whole thing out a bit.
