"[RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif] Its a shocking way to stop the copper theft
crime-wave a 7,000-volt electric security fence. The Rancho Cordova City
Council voted Monday night to draft an ordinance allowing businesses to put
up electric security fences that will zap would-be copper thieves."
First, I find it hard to believe that the citizens of California would
countenance such a Draconian measure when the copper foragers are merely
trying to put modest slices of bread in the mouths of their undernourished -
and sometimes starving - children.
Secondly, if the advocates of this plan think that thieves have not heard of
insulated wire cutters, they are dumber than a crate of anvils.
The plan is definitely NOT for the children.
