Thief Injured Attempting To Steal Copper Wire From School December 16, 2011 6:34 PM
MIAMI GARDENS (CBS4) – A thief apparently looking to steal copper from equipment on the roof of a Miami-Dade school fell more than two stories, a debilitating plunge that left him unable to walk, apparently with a broken hip or leg.
The hapless Spiderman was captured by security cameras at Charles Wyche Elementary School in Miami Gardens. He arrives, wearing a ski mask, and begins to arrange ropes he’s carrying for a climb up the outside wall of the school to the roof, more than two stories above. Moments later a second camera angle shows the man falling to the ground – a drop of more than 25 feet – where he begins to writhe in pain. The intruder dragged himself out on to a walkway and attempted to stand up, but immediately fell back down. He then dragged himself on his belly out of the school, pushing a pair of bolt cutters in front of him.

He'll probably sue the school board for not providing him with proper equipment and safety devices.

Yep. Under the concept of "attractive nuisance." The copper strewn about on the school-house roof is an almost irresistible draw. It's the same concept as a child drowned in an un-fenced backyard swimming pool.
At a minimum, the school should have enclosed the roof in razor wire as a deterrent.
For a few hundred dollars, live(s) could be saved.
It's for the children.

How about a motion activated machine gun instead.

Exspecially for the stoopid ones who didn't learn something, and had to resort to burglary for a living.

So if a guy got busted picking up a hooker, he could use the "attractive nuisance" defence? :-)

Fu k. That dude is in some serious pain. Too bad he didn't get electrocuted and thrown off the roof.

WHAT? That can't be. We all know that the current warming trend is the first in the history of the earth and that it is entirely man made. Don't go confusing people by telling them Arizona has any history of prior warming.
