Equipment stolen from Md. school

By the Baltimore Sun

The operators of a Christian academy say former students are suspected in the theft of computers and sound equipment from the Baltimore school.

Seventeen 17 new desktop computers had been set up two weeks earlier and the thieves seemed to know exactly where the most valuable items were during the weekend break-in.

Lamont Matthews, president of Purpose & Potential Christian Arts Academy, his wife, Patricia, and their three daughters run the school attended mostly by children from low-income families.

Bridgette Matthews said the thieves were able to take the computers, which were bought with an $8,460 state grant, but left a $2,000 electric piano after dragging it into a hallway.

That simply cannot be the case. All people are good and simply because they come from lower income homes doesn't make them criminals.
People just need an opportunity in life and through a better education just won't need to commit crimes...
I'm SURE this is the work of a group of Klansmen.

Why don't schools etc get cameras installed ??? The cost would be recovered in the first burglary.Too lazy I think,they know they will get another grant.
