Ha ha, Hollywood! Looks like some enterprising Americans have figured out a way to make you pay for your sin-based, soapboxing sinfulness:
A team of burglars has lifted more than $7 million in jewelry, rare books and cash from dozens of homes in the city’s wealthiest neighborhoods.
They slip in and out without tripping elaborate alarms or leaving so much as a fingerprint behind, authorities say.
Like a plot from “Ocean’s Eleven” or “The Italian Job,” authorities say the thieves appear to be a crew of professionals.
Over the past year, they have hit the homes of celebrities, sports stars and corporate tycoons, plus non-celebrity mansions in Brentwood, Beverly Hills and the “Platinum Triangle” of Bel-Air, Encino and Holmby Hills, Lt. Ray Lombardo said Thursday.
And until recently, they’ve managed to leave few clues for detectives to follow.
Take THAT, Hollywood! Too many Americans have had to look too long on your affluence and the money you’ve made at the expense of American morality. Too many Americans have had to listen to your patronizing, condescending, hypocritical political screeds, advocating our enemies’ positions with our money. While I don’t support burglary and criminality, I’m glad that someone is finally taking some action that will shut these traitors up. A treefrog with his hand on his wallet and his ear on the phone to the police is a treefrog who is NOT donating cash to the Osama campaign.
Free enterprise isn’t always pretty. These criminals should be punished for theft. But they should also be congratulated for stealing from the people who most deserve to be robbed. Until the laws are changed to resolve this dichotomy, we’re just going to have to endure the contradiction.
