Are the thieves becoming GIs?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
A friend and his family went camping last weekend and came home to find his house trashed and burglarized. The interesting thing: the thieves left guns and money and took several cases of storage food! I guess, though, if they had been totally GI they would not have left the guns and money. (g)

There has been a rash of robberies near my in-laws farm. This is rural area with an older population. There are reports that older people who don't trust banks may be withdrawing. The wild dogs are starting to hunt, start watching your preps and think about that weekend trip over Thanksgiving.

Seems like a good time to "kill two birds with one stone"...
#1: Well-armed GI folk need target practice.
#2: Thieves need a quick lesson in the risks associated with their "trade".

The fact that they thieves left the guns may indicate that they were afraid that if they got caught with the goods, their charges might be compounded due to many laws that carry severe penalties if firearms are involved. On the other hand, for them not to take the cash shows that they are absolutely stupid. So, bottom line, who knows what the hell was going through their pidly brains??
