DAILYKENN.com -- Human nature is what it is. In spite of the altruistic delusions of socialism, there will always be a sizeable portion of the population that takes what it can, when it can.
That lesson was illustrated in Wakefield, England where a pay-what-you-can market was forced to close by thieves.
Reports say thieves broke into the market, broke into the store's safe, and smashed the donation basket. They made off with £250. They also made off with a laptop.
After stealing from the store on Sunday, the crooks returned Thursday night.

A food waste "supermarket" has been forced to close after it was broken into twice in a week.
The Real Junk Food Project's Kindness Sharehouse in Wakefield operates a pay-as-you-feel policy for selling food that would otherwise be binned.
It was targeted by thieves on Sunday and then again overnight on Thursday.
After the first break-in, founder Adam Smith tweeted to the thieves: "In future if you just ask us for money or food, we probably give it to you."
He continued: "You didn't have to break our safe or smash our donation bucket.
"Keep the £250, you're always welcome back."
Mr Smith said as well as stealing the safe and laptop, thousands of pounds worth of damage had been caused.
He said they were having to temporarily shut because all the keys had been stolen including those to open the fridges.
