This is just despicable. I hope they catch the burglar and string them up with the toughest sentence on the books. Unfortunately that charge probably isn't too tough because of all the "rehabilitation wackos" who don't want there to be stiffer penalties for crimes.

Air Force Reserve Sgt. Terry Reeves might have his faith in humankind shattered when he returns home next month.
Reeves, 45, is a mailman who has been on active duty in Germany since June. Someone burglarized his home last month, taking just under $2,000 in DVDs, stereo equipment, electronic games, a TV set and other household furnishings, his relatives said. Even his microwave oven was stolen.
His aunt, Vivian Orr, saw dark irony in the break-in.
"He's fighting for their freedom and they're ripping him off," she said. "I'm sure he's going to be upset."
"They knocked glass out and tore his back door off," she said. "Whoever took it knew he was gone."
Wright said her son calls home every Sunday, but she hasn't told him about the burglary. She doesn't want to upset him.
Reeves is expected back in early October before shipping out for a year, probably to the Middle East, his mother said.
