Just deserts!

"A suspected burglar was found crushed to death by a 900-pound safe in an Indiana home this week, local authorities said.

The Marion Police Department said they received a call on Tuesday from a man named George Hollingsworth who believed his garage was broken into. Hollingsworth told police that the door frame was damaged and the garage was so cluttered that he couldn't tell what was stolen, according to a press release.

While cleaning out the garage on Wednesday to see what might have been stolen, Hollingsworth found a body underneath a 900-pound antique floor safe that had evidently fallen over, Deputy Chief Stephen D. Dorsey said.

“My mind couldn’t comprehend it,” Hollingsworth told Indianapolis' FOX 59. "I would have rather seen him steal stuff and get out than die like that. What a horrible way to die."

The Marion Fire Department helped Hollingsworth lift the safe and remove the body, according to police. Police identified the failed burglar as 28-year-old Jeremiah A. Disney, of Marion after an autopsy on Thursday. An investigation is ongoing.

I'm sure I'm just a sicko but I feel he has been weighed and measured and justice has been served up accordingly!

For what? Having an unsafe safe?

Sadly, yes. Failure to secure it properly, known hazard or risk.

Total b.s. but this is our insane world today.

The squashed flatter than a pancake dead thief's family might very well find themselves a shyster and file a lawsuit and hope for a big payday. But this is Indiana, not New York or Kalifornistan. This kind of lawsuit does not do well in the Hoosier state.

The garage owner did not cause the thief's death. He committed suicide in a round about way....

And so it goes.

News footage of the incident. From the description, nobody knows how long the guy was stuck under the safe.

It was plural. So it must be on the border of another dessert.
