Looks like Schumer lost it this time.He wants to limit the "pay outs" to $100 and make it a federal offense to steal from certain strutures.Another dem that wants to make it harder for honest working people to live. Hey Chucky how about going back to Washington and doing your job which you were elected to do,you know like a budget,jobs,healthcare,ect. Good old Chuck,"I'll do anything to get my mug in the news",Schumer.

Good to see some restrictions being talked about before the copper monkeys rip apart the whole damn city.

The state and local cops already have laws they can enforce,we don't need anymore federal laws.What will Schumer want next? Maybe a new law to tell us what toilet paper we can use. Schumer is nothing but a media hound.

Maybe they just need require IDs, and then jot down the names of the monkeys when they roll in with a shopping cart of brand new copper piping, hand rails from city hall, a giant transformer from russel station, or a new car that they'd like to crush (no title of course).

Didn't they do a sting on the scrap yards last year because of the tree covers? Why aren't the scrap yards fined for accepting obviously stolen metal?

I wonder if any monkey had scrapped that dock leveler that the other monkey was crushed under while trying to steal it earlier this summer.
