The Monday Peeve – No: 27

Topic of price gouging

Over the weekend I read an article posted on the internet. 

The source was one I trust for truth – no fake news.

Caption of man sitting on 17,700 bottles of hand sanitizer and no place

to sell them. 

Boo-hoo!!

It seems he and a few others who chose not to reveal their identities saw an

opportunity to make quick cash without concern for fellow humans.

Beforehand, lacking conscious, these gougers travelled store to store (even

to outlying areas) buying up entire supplies of surgical masks, hand sanitizers 

and thermometers.

Through online sellers they earned big bucks – one quoted a $25,000 profit 

before being halted.

Personally I feel when you violate polices you should be punished by the

legal system.

In my opinion, any person who profited via hindering public safety

precautionary measures (especially to elderly and other unfortunate

members of society) before the now sad Pandemic is a total disgrace

(polite word) to mankind.
