I find it interesting that Joan Buchanan would be tough on those that steal metal and then vote down a bill that would have helped to protect children from predatory teachers. I guess she feels that precious metals more valuable than precious children

Uhhhhh... yes copper is more valuable than children. Currently copper is running at over $4/pound. The value of a child, after accounting for food, college, clothing, and other costs is well into the negative!

What's important is that PG&E needs their copper wire so they can hook-up to the high speed rail and make obscene amounts of money. After all in a few more years they will have another president wanting to retire with a 35 million dollar golden handshake.
What's more important, taking legal short cuts to weed out and prosecute predatory teachers or allowing PG&E unlimited profits. PG&E wins every time.
