The Lowest of Scammers

Christina Rexrode and Robert Ray have a story for AP that makes me hope that Dante's vision of The Inferno is somewhere close to correct and that there is a special place in it for these perpetrators:

NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) -- The family of Noah Pozner was mourning the 6-year-old, killed in the Newtown school massacre, when outrage compounded their sorrow.

Someone they didn't know was soliciting donations in Noah's memory, claiming that they'd send any cards, packages and money collected to his parents and siblings. An official-looking website had been set up, with Noah's name as the address, even including petitions on gun control.

Noah's uncle, Alexis Haller, called on law enforcement authorities to seek out "these despicable people."

Isn't this just the sort of "low level, non-violent, property offense" that we are constantly told deserves no very serious punishment, and certainly not a trip to our overcrowded jails?

Can't be adding to "incarceration nation!"

Sometimes I wonder if our adversaries even hear themselves.
