No more copper!

I saw this painted on the front of a building on the 37XX block of Pennsylvania this morning and thought it really summed up the current copper theft situation. On one hand the message is funny, while on the other its just sad.

I’m never one to advocate for the government to get involved in peoples lives, but this theft has to stop. This is beyond a local issue. We need to get scrap yards in both Missouri and Illinois to stop the flow of this stolen copper. This don’t ask, don’t tell policy on where scrap comes from and who is collecting it has to come to an end.
