Letter to the Editor

Punish thieves

Friday, April 22, 2011

Dear Editor,

As I sat down last night to read my 20 April 2011 edition of the McCook Gazette I turn to page 2 to read the article about the 30th annual sale for the McCook Humane Society. I was in shock to read that there were "shoplifters" at the sale.

I know times are hard, and every one is trying to make ends meet, but when it comes to stealing from a charity that is bad, real bad.

That had to be the lowest thing that could have happened to a great organization that devotes more of their time and effort to make life for these animals a better place.

As I read the article I do not know if these two men had the law called on them and got arrested, or did they just walk away free?

I do wish that if the law was called and they were arrested I hope the judge punishes them to the max.

If I was the judge I would not only put them in jail, but I would add that they work for free for the Humane Society and they have to do more than just walk the dogs, but have to clean up behind them, by hand.

That might sound a little too nasty, but what were they thinking of, when they thought they could just steal and did they think they would get away from it?

In the days the Bible was being written, when a person was caught stealing they either were stoned to death, or nailed to a cross, for as you remember, there were two other men nailed to a cross along with Jesus Christ, and those other two men were robbers.

Well I rest my case.

I hope that these two men get what they deserve.

Thank you.

Kevin Dunn,

  • Kevin, I agree that thieves need be punished, but also need to disagree about being nailed to a Cross being Israeli. That form of death was developed by Rome, and executed by Romans, not Judah/Israel. The Priests wanted Jesus killed the most terrible way possible, and crucifixion was the hands down winner of ways to do it.

    Due to the season, I felt the need to clear that up a bit.

    I just posted a poem, addressing who killed Jesus. Perhaps some might be surprised as to who instigated, controlled and forced the execution.

    Happy Easter/Resurrection Day.
