An Evans woman told Richmond County deputies that someone broke into her property in Augusta and stole copper wire, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.

Deborah James reported that the break-in occurred between Thursday afternoon and Monday at a residence she owns at 2135 McNutt Road. Thieves kicked in the front door and took an electric water heater and a stainless steel kitchen sink valued at $950. They also ripped out drywall throughout the building in order to take the copper wire, the report said.

We have always had the welfare class, lower middle class, middle class, the upper middle class, and the upper class.

Now we have added another class which incorporates a couple of the pre-existing classes. It's called the "thieving scumbag vermin scavenger class". They will do $5k worth of damage to scavenge $50 worth of scrap metal. We should treat them like any other vermin. Set traps for them and poison them with lead.
