    Ya'll are making jokes but this is serious. He and an accomplice were stealing from my building and it's really scary to know that such a nut was lurking at my place of work.

    "Maybe some of that Hillary job training money will make it's way into rehabilitating him to be a better thief. He is obviously, not very good at it."

    Or, maybe the Wake County Schools secretary can give him some tips.

    My wallet was stolen by a co-worker out of my purse in my office filing cabinet drawer many years back. I didn't care about the money that was lost but I did care about the one-of-a-kind, can't usually be replaced pictures of my son with Santa, Easter Bunny, etc. Short of carrying your purse with you everywhere you go in the office, there's only so much we can do to protect our belongings in the workplace. I was raised to not be a thief, to not be a liar and to treat people kindly. Thanks Mom!

    There's only one good thing about all of these crime articles. Each time we read one, it means the cops got another useless individual off the streets and out of our lives. But then again, each article reminds us of all of the criminals that the judges put back on the streets.

    Let this serve as a lesson to those that leave their belongings unattended!
