    Tip to copper wire thieves: Not the live ones
    0,000-volt shock leaves cable thief to be IDd by prints from severed hand

    BERLIN - A thief in Germany was charred beyond recognition by a 10,000-volt electric shock when he tried to steal a live copper cable, authorities said Monday.

    Police in the western city of Duisburg found the 32-year-old man's blackened remains by a set of cable cutters and a pile of cables he had already stolen.

    Only because one of his hands survived incineration were officers able to identify the man as a German of Kazakh origin.

    "His fingerprints were already logged on police files," a local police spokesman said. "The force of the shock was so great that the hand was severed from his body."

    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    Smile ZZZZAAAAAP!

    Now thats funny!

    We had one similar case here in the Northwest. The body was so badly burned that you couldn't tell which race he was. But copper wire thefts dropped by 50% over the next month.

    Just every once in a while, justice is swift. In this case, at the speed of light.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!
