This is a question I witnessed a crime

Freddy Woo writes, "A group of us once staggered home so insensible with drink that we failed to notice someone being killed and buried in a shallow grave not more than 50 yards away. A crime unsolved to this day."

Have you witnessed a crime and done bugger all about it? Or are you a have-a-go hero?
Whatever. Tell us about it...

The price of copper theses days.
Living on a rough council estate some years ago in Wales we had our fair share of thieving bastards around.
Now you couldn,t even trust your nieghbours.Across the road from me was a stinking dirty family who thought a bath was where you kept your coal.
At the time the price of scrap metal went through the roof and any lead,aluminium, copper that was within reach was stripped and sold,so there,d be leaky rooves? no guttering ,downpipes,they all would disappear if your back was turned.
One night while in my bedroom I heard a racket from outside... some bastard was in the process of ripping the boiler from my nieghbours house......WHILE THEY WERE DOWNSTAIRS! I hear the hacksaw, the screaming followed by a gush of water ,then two fucking idiots belting thruough the front door with thier prize..Laugh ? I nearly pissed myself,and the grand total of said booty? about 15£ ..

This reminds me of an anecdote from some south American travel book. The author saw a guy out in a massive storm climbing an electricity pylon. He kept watching, wondering what the hell this shady character might be up to.

About 20 mins later the pylon got struck by lightening and the bloke scarpered with all the copper wiring he could carry.

He'd climbed up there in a lightening storm to put up a conductor so he could get at the booty.

It takes all sorts don't it!
