Copper Thieves Killed Cutting Into Power Lines
A whole new meaning to 'cop a feel'

Nationwide, police report copper thieves stealing wires from air conditioning units, exposed pipes from underneath homes, vases from graveyards in Sumter, S.C., and bells from a church in Yonkers, N.Y.

At least seven men in five states have been fatally electrocuted since July while hacking through power lines to steal wire made of copper, which has been commanding near-record prices, police say.

This is just The Almighty's little way of proving;

1. He meant what He said about 'Thou Shalt Not Steal'.

2. He really does have a quirky sense of humor.
