I am saddened that someone felt the need to steal my handicapped son's entire paycheck at the Walmart on Grindstone Parkway Thursday night. My son is an adult handicapped person who is currently the sole bread winner in a family of four handicapped adults. Thursday evening, he dropped his wallet at the door as we left just after him cashing his check. This is to the person who stole the money, his entire $353 paycheck : I hope they sleep well at night! May Karma return to you threefold the evil you have done. You left an entire family without means of food or the ability to pay rent. I hope that you remember this every day of your tiny life, for it takes someone lower then low to steal from a handicapped person. I thought I moved to a state with nice people. You have tainted my perception of this state and its people. We have only been here two and a half months. You do not have any idea how badly you have not only hurt my son but the entire family. That money was to pay our rent so we would not be evicted. We now have NOTHING!
LETTER: Stealing from handicapped son is really low
