    What a disgusting thing to do. Perhaps some time in jail will wipe that smirk off his face…

    That is seriously messed up. I’m an electrical engineer major and we need that equipment to work on. It’s difficult as it is to get equipment. I’m glad he got caught, he should be getting us new equipment. Also just a shout-out to Perry he’s a great guy.
