There's inhumane (http://www.engadget.com/2007/01/03/ps3-crime-spree-part-infinity-will-the-madness-never-end/), and then there's despicable (http://gaming.engadget.com/2007/01/14/woman-dies-trying-to-win-a-wii/2), but unfortunately for a 17-year old cancer patient receiving treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital, he knows all too well about both of them. A Vermont-based teenager had been suffered from osteosarcoma, bone cancer in the leg, and was "recovering from surgery" a few hundred miles away from home.

Apparently, someone(s) the family actually knew broke into their home while they were obviously away, and proceeded to jack his Xbox 360 (http://www.engadget.com/tag/Xbox360/) as well as "over $1,000 worth of games and DVDs" while they were at it.

Local police (http://gaming.engadget.com/search/?q=police) suggest that they "do have some good leads involving current and former students at local high schools," and while none of the culprits have been apprehended just yet, folks have been more than generous in helping Jeff return to some state of normalcy by donating funds to help with family expenses, and one individual actually dropped off a new Xbox 360 console for a local radio station to deliver.

I just do not know what to say about this. Had to be a Pats fan.

I can't believe someone would do that to a cancer patient. I'm sure he loves video games and for that to happen to him is probably nerve wrecking. My father had cancer at one point of his life a few years back and if something of his was stolen, I'd seriously hate the person who did it. I hope the person who stole the 360 burns in hell for doing such an act to a person who doesn't deserve anything like that.

Kicking somebody while they're down like that...

Sounds like Albert Haynesworth might have done it!

Wasn't it a couple of years back that 3 guys killed a whole family with baseball bats and all they stole was an xbox? It was either here in Miami or in Daytona, I don't quite remember. I hope they weren't fin fans.

I remember reading about that, but I don't think it was Daytona. May have been in Central FL though.

Worst person ever.

Both the ******* who jacked the 360, and anyone he brags to it about and doesn't kick the living piss out of the guy on the spot.

Osteosarcoma is the same cancer I had in my leg (lost it ultimately :lol: ) - When I was at a children's hospital in Omaha when I was 15 somebody apparently wheeled off the ENTIRE gaming cart. PS2, XBOX, N64, Super Nintendo - and all games. The staff used steel cables to secure them to the cart never thinking anyone could possible wheel the mass of it out -- wrong. They had saved for ever and ever for those items for kids to play and I remember alot of us were quite bored for some time . :lol: Some people get tunnel vision with greed.
