Dirt Bags are robbing the homes of the Colorado Firefighters.

So can you believe this one? Criminals are targeting the homes of firefighters fighting the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs CO. for break-ins and robberies.

Is there a lower form of life than a scumbag that would rob the house of a firefighter fighting to keep them safe? This news makes me sick to my stomach. Should these dirt bags be apprehended I am struggling with ideas for a fitting punishment.

The notion of some form of burning or public flogging comes to mind. Nothing that would lead to death but defiantly something that included long periods of pain and humiliation.

Now I’m not sure if these same cockroaches are responsible for another heinous crime, but I suspect they are. The victims of the fire that had only moments to flee the raging fire were forced to grab what they could from their homes and leave.

Many have taken up residence in local hotels and motels and guess what, their vehicles are being targeted by thieves for break-ins as well. I am sure the criminal mind sees this as an amazing opportunity for reward. A reward that entitles them to a special place in hell.

I hope they enjoy the crack, heroin, crystal, or whatever it is they buy with suffering of other human beings. I also hope they overdose on it and contract HIV, hepatitis and sexually transmitted disease from the reckless sex they enjoy while high.

I hope they become haunted by visions of tormented souls and never rest in peace another day in their lives. I want them to have their drug addled minds filled with torment and anguish, I wish insanity and misery on their rotten souls that is assuming  animals like these have souls.

I simply can’t imagine how a person could do this. I think under these circumstances that forming a vigilante group to patrol the parking lots of these hotels and motels would be a reasonable response. It would allow the victims to sleep well and would allow a properly motivated group of people the chance to break some kneecaps.

I would gladly and lightly restrain these douchbags until the proper authorities could arrive. As a retired firefighter/paramedic I would be able to keep them alive until they could be incarcerated.

This so enrages me I am beside myself with anger. I can’t put into words how this strips me to my very core, how this insights my thoughts to violence as I am not a violent man. I spent my whole career helping strangers and even sometimes friends and just have no concept of this kind of behavior. I am shaking as I write this.

I will spend some time in prayer today for my friends, the victims and the criminals.

On another note a friend I talked to today asked if my daughters might have some clothing and toys to give to a 6 year old girl that had lost everything in the fire other than the clothes on her back. Another friend mentioned that at his son’s baseball game this morning there were two little boys that couldn’t play because all of their equipment had been destroyed by fire as well.

So I thought, how can I help? I came up with an idea. On July 14 2012 I am organizing a Christmas in July toy and clothing drive for the children that have lost everything to the fire.

Many of my friends in the media are already on board to help get the word out and the idea is exploding. I will keep you all posted on the event as it advances, so stay tuned.

Maybe I can help some good to come out of this terrible fire.

I heard recently that Tagedy brings out the best in good people and the worst in bad people

That sure seems to be the case here Corey. I am so mad about this.

You're right. I don't think public flogging would be cruel and unusual punishment for the likes of these sorts. I also strongly believe that firemen are grossly underpaid and would like to see my taxes (and a tax on the rich) going to help fireman, police man, and teachers to get the salaries that they deserve.

Fireman said...

Thanks Joyce, I mostly just wanted to complain out loud. This is gut wrenching.

Jo said...

Cockroaches are hard to kill, but I think you can make them suffer. Gut wrenching, you say, appalling I say. I cannot believe anyone would ever consider such low and hateful acts, but the devil is strong.

I think I'll add to the prayers you are sending and the criminals will need a lot of prayers.

Thanks for sharing this rant against insanity.

Thanks Jo, I just hate that some people think this way. Imagine if one gets caught, that puts a smile on my face.
