I just don't understand how people don't think this is a big deal. They stole from you! You were going to pay for that water. If they did this, they have most likely done something like it before and will in the future.

A few years back there was substantial damage done to the ball field at the high school and the electrical box, I wonder if these were the same individuals involved. I believe the bill for that was in the tens of thousands, are you ok with that as well?

I wonder why no mention was made as to if the uncle, a village employee, that gave them the fire hose isn't being investigated or terminated. Why on earth would he have a fire hose in his personal possession? Did he know they were going to steal water from the village? What did he think they were going to do with it? If this village employee thought this was ok, what else is he helping himself to?
