He'll be on the hook for $45,000 in damages, and do you know how much copper he'll need to steal to pay that off?  That's about 14,062.5 - 16,544 pounds depending on what the price is when he turns it in.

why don't we just add copper to meth and avoid this whole thing?

I came in to work one day a few years back to find many of my co-workers gathered around the Northeast corner of Building Two.

Over the weekend, some genius had torn out about 15 feet of 2 1/2 inch copper pipe off the wall. They didn't cut it, they actually cold-worked the pipe back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, until it broke free.

Now, I'm not really sure how long it took them to do this but you KNOW they had to be sweating their asses off by the tie they were finished, and for what they got they could have made working minimum wage at McDonalds.

Oh well, at least they didn't get electrocuted.

GIS 'copper thieves electrocuted' for plenty of pictures of crispy critters who tried to heist live electric cables.

Billy Ray Owens, 51, of Whittier was hospitalized in critical condition after he was found unconscious Sunday morning at the utility equipment site in the 9900 block of Beverly Boulevard, Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Robert Smith said.

I am shocked by the fact that it happened in such a nice upscale area in LA as well.

I don't see watt the problem is with meth addicts stealing copper. I mean it's not a bright idea, and we'll surely CU in jail later on for breaking any one of Omh's laws, but in the meantime, this shouldn't be met with much resistance.

My dad worked for a power company and once found a guy who had broken into a substation and tried to steal copper wire. He was one crispy critter. His friends were kind enough to leave him to die. Alas, he lived and then sued the power company.

I don't like those thieves. They don't know who's on home respirators, etc. Couldn't we use cop math and charge them with attempted murder any time they try it? If they can sue afterwards, make sure they're doing it behind 5-10 yrs in the joint first to cool their heels.

I agree with you. They were so bad they hertz. I can't say I am amped about doing any more.

Doesn't seem fair to make him pay damages. He was already over-charged.

I agree... I use a breathing machine when I sleep... And so I have a battery backup on the damned thing..

Why do they even bother to resuscitate these people and/or take them to the hospital?
 
2013-10-17 03:07:29 PM  
If your first name ends in "y" and your middle name is Ray or Joe, the odds of being electrocuted while stealing copper wire skyrockets.

Ran into a character I knew who made previous headlines from his copper-wire swiping mishap, claimed his was a "misunderstanding".  The state picked up his hospital bills(medevac'd to County), he's now on disability(!) the one interesting detail, I thought he said it was something to do with his fillings, but it knocked out all his teeth

WalMartian Twern't me.

Maybe I'm going about this shiat all wrong.  I have a $50/day painkiller habit, but instead of stealing and being a lazy sumbish, I work overtime on the jobsite and work sidejob remodels on the weekends in order to afford it.

*Shrug*
