To The Herald-Whig:

Woe to you who thought they needed a three-wheel bicycle more than two elderly gentlemen living at the Illinois Veterans Home.

On the early morning of Sept. 15, two three-wheel bicycles were taken from the rear of one of the buildings there. They were padlocked with a chain and the padlocks were cut apart. This was the same morning that several veterans were returning from their Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.

How could someone be so lacking in intelligence to take from a veteran who served our country and probably in place of the thieves? Shame on you for your thievery. I hope you get what's coming to you.
