An Open Letter to the Burglar(s) Who Robbed Dallas Services

Dear Bad People,

I understand, being bad people, that you often do bad things. But there are bad things, and then there are bad things. Perhaps you didn’t know that school you broke in to was part of Dallas Services. I hadn’t heard of it either, until someone told me it’s a “a non-profit agency that provides day school and therapy services for special needs children and offers a low vision clinic for people with issues caused by diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, etc.” You stole from kids. Not only that, you stole from special needs kids. Very bad.

If you stole a bunch of stuff from a bunch of different places, and you can’t remember what you took from Dallas Services, I’ll include the list the executive director emailed after the jump. That way, you can return what you took and go back to being a normal bad person.

Thank you.
