How could the government NOT notice 12 tons of an aluminum runway disappearing in gradual chunks? Surely they would have posted surveillance cameras and/or guards sooner!


No indictments after "borrowing" 12 tons of the federal government,s aluminum and other stuff?? In the hood, "borrowing" a honeybun at the local convenient store will guarantee an indictment, with "Big Ben" sure to follow immediately.Guess it has to do with which side of track you're on,when you decide to "borrow" other folk's stuff.Could lady justice see that much difference in the "borrowers"???
