With the Crime Emergency continuing onward, and all of DC’s efforts on stopping violent crime, this story came our way via Chris Needham at Capital Punishment. As part of the deal with the city, Major League Baseball made some improvements to local sports fields and that included a set of impressive bleachers at Ballou High School in Southeast.
Last week, the benches, made of prime grade aluminum, were stolen for scrap metal and sold. It was about 750 pounds of aluminum that was taken, and probably fetched at least $500 for it all.
What kind of sick bastard does this? Seriously, this is ridiculous.
