Thieves Steal Part Of 9/11 Memorial

August 26, 2008

One thing that really angers me, no pisses me off, is when someone steals something that doesn’t belong to them. When I worked as a police officer, it was my pleasure to put those people in jail. I really hope that happens in this case. It really pisses me off that the people who do this type of thing, give no thought to the meaning of the memorial and how many people they victimize because of their actions. In my opinion, they deserve to spend as much time in jail as the law allows, as well as a hefty fine.

For the second time in three years, thieves stole a piece of concrete rubble from the Pentagon, at the 9/11 Memorial in Napperville, Illinois. In 2005, after the first theft, city officials installed surveillance cameras at the memorial. Unfortunately, last week, the cameras weren’t working and didn’t catch the thieves on film, last Wednesday, when the theft occurred.

The concrete piece was encased in a heavy plastic protective covering, which the thieves broke to remove it. The theft was later discovered by a security guard and reported to police. A local anti-crime group in Napperville has offered a $1,000 for the return of the piece of concrete.

The memorial in Napperville was built to honor the men and women who were victims of the 9/11 attacks, including a Napperville native, Navy Commander Dan Shanower, who died at the Pentagon.
