Copper wiring plucked

Full story: Berkshire Eagle

A weekend theft of heavy-duty electrical cable from a Linden Street job site was tantamount to a kick in the teeth, according to the leader of a local sobriety-advocacy organization, which is currently renovating the West Side building.

I am so glad I finally got out of that city. These little things make it worse by the day. What a dump. . . . .

Why didnt the electrician have the wire tied off on the pole where you would need a ladder to disconnect the wire ( Maybe a inside job)

This has been occurring in cities all over the place. It just took the criminals in Pittsfield a while to catch on, as they aren't the brightest bulbs in the bunch.

oh yeah, and alcoholism is not a disease. that's a crock of bs. it's an addiction. drunks decide whether or not to drink everyday, not some disease in their veins or brains.

Do some homework. It is a change in your brain chemistry, usually brought on by stress and/or abuse. This leaves you susceptible to addiction.
The train wreck is; all your family then can catch the disease because they, in turn, become stressed out.

Good ole' Linden Street- seems like it hasn't changed much since the time I was attacked and beaten up by three punks whilst walking home one night in 1984- Can't this area be patrolled more heavily? Do you know how long it probably took them to disconnect and lug away 300 LBS of cable? I bet they would have thought twice if police had a heavier presence there. A security camera costing a couple hundred dollars could easily fit into their budget of $750,000, and can prevent future theft, although I know this particular business honors its' clients (understandable) privacy.

And this is news why? They leave valuable items in one of the sh|ttiest neighborhoods in Pitts and they cry when it all gets stolen, idiots. That's like leaving a coyote in a henhouse overnight and then being surprised when all you find are feathers in the morning. Stupid a$$hats! Waaahhh I'm a moron, let's do a news story about it...

Stop making excuses. Your father is a drunk.

He is not diseased.(Well, maybe he is. Tell him to wear a condom.)

Dude your dad is a raving drunkard. If there was any change in brain chemistry it was AFTER he started pounding the booze and killin braincells. Stress, go cry about it...we all have it, yet 99% of us don't pour cheap scotch down our gullets to cope with it. I'm so tired of these excuses. It's like the fatties who say it's a disease, yeah ok. Those 3 Big Macs you ate for breakfast have nothing to do with it.

it's amazing that you are an expert on alcoholism being a disease "what is up with this guy". If having a drunk for a parent makes you so knowledgeable about the "disease", then consider me the all-knowing god of booze hounds.
