This has been happening more and more. People are scavenging precious metals everywhere, and getting more and more brazen and/or desperate.

Earlier this year I began noticing an increase in reports on this phenomenon. It was a sign that the depression was coming. The Fed stopped reporting how much money was being printed and the price of precious metals went up, which brings out the desperate... and the stupid.

Not so sure about a depression....more like lazy white and black trash that are too dumb to actually get a job. They would rather invest time and energy into stealing.

Hopefully even out of work electricians wouldn't be so stupid.

I know someone who did this as well, about a year ago. He's a drug-addict (heroin) and was stealing the wire to resell for drugs. He lost all the skin on his forearms, spent a couple of months in the hospital, then went to jail. But he'll be released shortly, as he always is, then rob something else and get put away again. It's the story of his life. Loser.

If copper is such a hot commodity, does anyone know where I can sell some copper pots and pans I have?
