Arrests made in funeral robberies

I remember hearing about this story on the news where during a funeral of a loved one people would be robbed, and now the police have finally made an arrest. The two women are to be charged with 19 total charges including break and enter, theft, possession of stolen property, and conspiracy to commit and indictable offense. I personally find this kind of act sick and makes me wonder what type of people would do this, to take advantage of people when they are at their most vulnerable. These kind of crimes should not occur but in our increasingly expensive society it has become more common for people to just take the things they want. But this takes it to a whole new level because these people left their home open to go to a  funeral and because of that one little item; they were the victims of yet another blow to their lives and that should never have happened.

    It makes you wonder if technology is getting to be too big now in our lives. If you are one who loves to post every little thing on facebook or twitter beware because when you go away you might come home to nothing left. It is the same thing, you are most vulnerable when someone dies, or when you are gone and people take advantage of that opportunity to take stuff that they may not even need.

    yes, this a terrible thing to do by two terrible people. However, it may not be as uncommon as you think. Certainly when it happens in smaller communities. My mom has actually watched someones house during a funeral for this very reason before. It is just awful to think that this actually happens.
