People With Underdeveloped Consciences

Just before Christmas, Tammy Strickland, 38, was arrested in Polk County, Florida, and charged with stealing 100 toys from a Toys for Tots collection box.

In February, thieves unbolted and stole a PlayStation from the children's cancer ward at Wellington Hospital in New Zealand.

Judith Permar, 56, who was found dead, stuck in a clothing donation drop-off box in Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania, in February (a result, police said, of trying to "steal" items), had driven to the box in her Hummer.
