I'm of the opinion that our legal system is not flexible enough. For instance, stealing bronze/copper head stones and vases from a cemetery is exponentially worse in my mind than stealing a roll of copper wire that county workers leave at the job site when they go to lunch.
Case in point:stealing $220 from a Camp Fire Girl is worse than stealing money from an FDIC insured financial institution.
Truthfully, I'm kind of surprised this doesn't happen more often...there were times my wife and kids had much more money than this after a cookie sale outside of Wal-Mart, and while my wife has her carry permit, I have to think you average cookie sale is a 'soft target'.
I just hope the security cameras give them something to work with...while I am greatly angered by this type of activity, I don't know how much time the Spokane Police have to dedicate to a crime like this.
