Why don't the bad guys pick on someone their own size? Grown men cowardly steal from Girl Scouts selling cookies all too often.
In New Hampshire, a troop of Girl Scouts were selling cookies in front of Walgreens when a thief grabbed their cash box and fled with the girls' hard earned money. In California, a thief stole a cash box out of a Girl Scout's hands. The most despicable incident of all occurred in Michigan. A cowardly man stole a cash box with over $600 from a Girl Scout disabled by cerebral palsy. These thieves victimized young girls who were particularly vulnerable. They should be given harsher punishments than normal.
Are there any laws that inflict harsher punishment when the victims are children or disabled?
