Should Stealing From a Child With Cancer Be a More Serious Crime Than Shoplifting?
Last week, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office caught the two guys who allegedly stole donation jars meant for a 7-year-old girl who has cancer.
It doesn't come as a surprise, but Anthony Stuber and Peter Cardinale will be facing simple shoplifting charges.
A PCSO spokesman said the guys who went into San Tan Valley Walgreens stores and stole donation jars intended for 7-year-old Dakota Clark, who has Burkitt's Lymphoma. Dakota's family used that money specifically for food.
Aside from possibly qualifying for a seat next to Satan's office, their charge isn't any different from any other shoplifter's.
Should it be?
