    It is disgraceful that someone would carry out such a disrespectful act. Who cares if he is a 39 year old man? Really. If you are going to report on a story such as this one. Find out who the 39 year old man is and publish his name so everyone will know who he is and the best punishment for a crime like this would be to embarrass him with public humiliation.

    Anybody who'd steal from a poppy tin is a waste of human skin.
