Copper Theft is a Problem everywhere

My buddy Robert Wilonsky over at Dallas Observer has a great post regarding the epidemic of copper theft (link)

Robert’s telling statement is sad, but true:

Well, everything that doesn’t move in South Dallas gets stripped for copper at some point.

I’d like to add (unfortunately), the morons that stole copper from two schools in South Dallas. The Rice Learning Center on Pine Street (map) and the Billy Dade School (map) were the victims. The DISD is now paying for chillers at a substantial cost to the district.

How in the world can you have development in South Dallas, Oak Cliff, or anywhere else south of I-20 if thieves are stripping the entire neighborhood clean of copper?
