My brothers house was broken into
I am really upset right now, but nothing compared to what my brother must be feeling. He called me yesterday to tell me his house was broken into. He lives in a houe with two other guys. It is a very big old farmhouse. His room is on the top floor in the furthest corner of the house. The theif broke in and went straight to his room. this can only mean one thing as far as I am concerned...the theif knew my brother. he had to pass though multiple other rooms and floors to get to his stuff passing by TV's and electronics and all sorts of things. They got away with his laptop, iPod alarm clock thingy that I bought him for Chanuka, Cash that he won at the casino over the weekend, and a ring that our grandfather had given him which help great sentimental value, but little monetary value.

I am pretty sure the theif is their last roomate who they basically had to kick out because he was a deadbeat. this guy would sleep all day and play Everquest (an addictive computergame that some people call everCrack) all night. That would not be such an issue if he wasn't also the father of a young boy (I think he is 6 now). the dad had his son on the weekends, but never spent time with him. My brother and his other roomate ended up taking care of the kid every single weekend. they would feed him, take him places, play with him, make sure he was safe and not getting into trouble, and basically being his dads for the weekend.

I am convinced that this jerk is the one who broke in and stole my brothers stuff. They are pretty sure he was messed up with drugs someone too and I bet he knew to go right to my brothers room for some cash and stuff he can sell. The cops were dusting for fingerprints last night. I really hope they catch this #$%^&!!! :furious: :furious: :furious:

If I ever see this guy on the street he had better hope he can run faster than I can mugsy!

Oh no GB... I really hope that the whole things will come to its justice and the loser will be put to where he belongs and the sooner the better...
I feel sorry for the son, too... I hope he will find a better father figure one day.

Thanks Licia. I hope so too.

yeah I feel really bad for the little boy. He is such a nice fun loving kid. He deserves a lot better than this idiot for a dad. I do not know anything about his mother so I hope she at least gives him the love he deserves!

That is awful, GB. My husband had his truck broken into once and they got about $1,500 worth of power tools. DH said that he was pi$$ed about the stuff being gone, but, what bothered him more was knowing that someone invaded his privacy. He felt very naked. I hope that they catch the jerk!!!

Thanks TG. I am sure that is how he is feeling right now too. It makes me so mad just thinking about it. his computer was only a few months old and he even just ordered an extra hard drive for it that is probably in the mail as we speak.

The worst part though is the ring they stole. My grandfather was a gem setter and he made this ring for my brother. He always wore it to special occasions and it always made grandpa so happy when he would see it on his hand.

GB, I am sorry to hear of your brother's misfortune. He must feel so violated right now. I feel sorry for the loser who did this to him -he is in the worst shape - he must have no spirit - no conscience - and little love in his heart - what a horrible way to live - and he will have you-know-what to pay when he gets you-know-where - it won't be where we spend eternity. Again, sorry to hear the bad news.

So sorry to hear about that GB. Hope the cops are able to catch the creep.

Why is it always t he good ones? You are one of the good ones here too. So sorry to hear about the bad news. Having someone steal anything makes you feel so helpless. The police just never seem to be concerned. I am sure your brother feels so bad. You try to help someone out and this is the thanks you get! Is there any justice? Have to look long and hard. Sorry to be so down but you seem such good person. Your brother probably is to.
