Convicted wire thief dies slicing electric wires
(emphasis mine)GARY, Ind. (Sun-Times Media Wire) - Kevin Roy was killed as he sliced live NIPSCO wires adjacent to a church Friday morning in Gary, Ind.Roy, 48, a Glen Park resident, was pronounced dead outside Agape Tabernacle in the 1400 block of East 49th Avenue shortly after 6:50 a.m. when a passerby noticed him lying on the ground.
I'm sorry. That's about as clear a sign as you've ever going to get. Steal wiring from a church? You're gonna fry! It's hard to work up a lot of sympathy for someone dying in such a stupid, senseless way - and stories like these are fairly common. He'd been arrested for stealing wire before, so it's not like this was a one-time deal - but it's the last time he'll ever steal wire.
Prosecutors are letting him go - they know he won't hold a charge any longer...
That is all.
