Not So Untouchable After All

From today’s edition of the Cleveland, Ohio, Plain-Dealer:
A thief has burglarized the most unlikely place, the headquarters of the Cleveland police.

The bandit selected the ultimate prize for insulting the very notion of justice: a bronze plaque picturing the man who may be the city's best crime-fighter of all time and certainly the city’s most widely known lawman:
Eliot Ness.

Ness made his name in Prohibition-era Chicago by successfully prosecuting notorious gangster
Al “Scarface” Capone in 1931.
Value of that plaque: Approximately $225. Bragging rights for the thieves: Priceless.
