I seriously doubt this is the work of a meth head or any junkie. I think they would found them on the sopt.

This was the work of a meth head. Just because someone is a meth head does not mean they are not able to steal copper.

No - thats the work of numbnut Republitards who supported the BS war even after they knew it was based on BS. Thats why the economy is where it is, thats why these things start happening.

We can be like South America soon, where the manhole covers are either made of concrete, or busted and missing because people steal the iron ones to sell for scrap.

Youll be going down the road and BOOM!.. there goes a wheel.

Yes - it all goes back to you retard pro war gutless WUSSIES who were too timid to stand up for the right thing when it counted (when it wasnt 'safe' for you to do so). YOU PEOPLE who made Obama a reality.

YOU are why copper is worth the trouble and theres a reason to steal it (here) in the first place.

We should make you pay for it.

Hold up now lol I've lived in Meigs county my entire life and I have never touched an illegal substance. There are problems every not just here. But I will agree that the ones that stole the copper are meth heads but you can't expect people to believe that there are no in Knoxville.

Its vey sorry of the people who left the comments on this site like you did. You weren't there and know nothing about the situations. I dont appreciate being called trash when i had nothing to do with it but my name was brought up like i did. People need to keep quiet in something they know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about.
