When you steal from a dying woman…


A man (Byron Hickles – pictured above) has been handed down a sentence that is just shy of eight years in gaol in Sedgwick County Court. Hickles was part of a group of men who were convicted of stealing things from a 43 year-old woman who had driven through a drive-through restaurant and crashed her car – she had suffered a brain aneurysm that killed her the following day.

Now crime always happens, but when a crime like that happens, you have to ask, has something profoundly, structurally, gone wrong?
