Front-Runner for the Most Pathetic Crime Ever

24 Hours carried a story this morning about a Kool-Aid stand in the False Creek neighbourhood being robbed by a pair of enterprising refreshment thieves last weekend. One kid was allegedly punched in the head, and then the thieves drank the Kool-Aid from the kids’ cooler.

Really, how low can you go? What’s next? I keep trying to come up with examples, but without being really politically incorrect, none of them have the same air of tragic futility as the Kool-Aid stand robbery.

    Doesn’t one have to feel that if your life has taken such a turn that you’re assaulting children and stealing Kool-Aid, that maybe it’s time to think about a change of direction?

    The bad guys were described as “well know to police,” which is paper-speak for habitual criminals.
