Cruel Prank on Military Families

Our brave men and women in uniform are putting their lives on the line fighting the Taliban and trying to help bring about a peaceful and decent life for the Afghan people.  Meanwhile at home here some demented sicko is playing a very cruel prank on military families who are keeping the home fires burning. This lowlife has been calling families in the middle of the night to tell them their loved one is dead.
QUEBEC - Military police are pursuing a prankster preying on families of soldiers deployed to Afghanistan by calling them in the middle of the night to say their loved ones have died.
The relatives of at least three soldiers serving in the war-torn country have been targeted by the prank, said Alex Maillé, a spokesman at Canadian Forces Base Valcartier said Tuesday.
The wife of one soldier filed a complaint with military police after someone called her last week to say her husband had died in a roadside bomb explosion.
How cruel is that? It's sick,demented,deplorable etc. Our military families sacrifice a lot so  their loved ones can serve and it's not easy. They must be constantly on edge all the time their loved one is deployed for fear they receive that dreaded  call.  Then you have some low life that does this kind of despicable act.  Just think about how the troops in Afghanistan are feeling knowing that some sociopath/psychopath is terrorizing their families like that?  It's just something more for them to worry about.

I hope they find who ever is doing this,lock 'em up and throw away the key.
