infamous Auschwitz sign stolen

I just really wonder about people when I read stories like this.  Good gods, the damn thing is 90 pounds. 

The infamous iron sign bearing the Nazis’ cynical slogan “Arbeit Macht Frei” that spanned the main entrance to the former Auschwitz death camp was stolen before dawn Friday, Polish police said.

The heavy 5-meter-long (16-foot-long), 40-kilogram (90-pound) iron sign at the former Nazi death camp in southern Poland where more than 1 million people died during World War II was unscrewed on one side and torn off on the other, police spokeswoman Katarzyna Padlo said.

Just because you worked to steal that sign doesn’t make it free, dude. 

Have it good,
