God’ll get you for that

Is nothing sacred or has criminal enterprise moved into the assistive technology market? 

I have said before there is gold in mining the previously owned durable medical equipment market, key word “owned”. 

Participating in, dealing in, or buying stolen mobility assistance technology is illegal, and unconscionable. … “God’ll get you for that!”, Beatrice Arthur as Maude

Looks like God is going to be busy based on recent news stories from USA and UK:

  1. that is soo sad! I don't know why those thieves have to steal in the first place and then have to do so from a very vulnerable group of people. I can imagine one day we'll see these scooters chained to trees or other posts to try to keep them from being stolen


  2. Human selfishness never ceases to amaze me. What pathetic people.

  3. Hi Patrick,
    How horrible stealing dishability scooters.
    It has been awhile since I visited many blogs.
    Decided to do a quick visit to say hello to as many blogs as possible tonight..
    Nice to visit your blog its been ages, I am sure it will not be so long again especially now my life is getting better.
    I went out this afternoon for the first time since 19 August 2009 and it was brilliant.
    Lovely to feel my world getting bigger again after all this time in bed.
    Have a good evening and a pleasant day tomorrow.
