Hungry Burglar Gets 3 1/2 Years For Raiding Homeowner's Fridge

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A man in Spain who stole food has been sentenced to 3 1/2 years in jail, even though the owner of the food has not pressed charges, court officials said.

ThinkSpain said the man took a window out of its frame to get into the house in Vigo.


He stole sausages, lobsters and other food from the fridge inside the home, ThinkSpain reported."


All I have in my fridge are condiments and Tupperware with food that`s grown moldy and inedible. If a burglar breaks into my home, I hope he takes the Tupperware with him.

The namby-pamby homeowner could have received compensation for the food, but refused to accept it. She told the court: He stole food, he must have been hungry. At the very least she could have requested that the judge order the man to clean her fridge and wash her dishes.

If the man was hungry he should have gone to a soap kitchen, instead of causing damage to a home by taking a window out if its frame and raiding the homeowner`s fridge.

Thank goodness the judge isn`t a bleeding-heart liberal like the victim; he sentenced the burglar to a stiff jail sentence.

This is the second time that this man has been caught breaking into a home; the first time he received only a suspended sentence.

It`s time that homeowners discouraged burglars by shooting them full of holes, and the judiciary system can do their part by sentencing the bullet-ridden crooks to long sentences.
