Man arrested for stealing...skin

Man Accused Of Stealing $350,000 Worth Of Human Skin

Gary Dudek, 54, is accused of stealing more than $350,000 worth of...skin.

Dudek worked as a sales rep for regenerative medicine and hospital employees said they saw him putting skin grafts into his car multiple times.

He was authorized to order skin grafts for work purposes...not for whatever other creepy personal reasons he might've actually been filling orders for. Officials say he made more than 200 unauthorized orders over several years.

Dudek was arrested Tuesday and charged with theft and tampering with records. No word on why he stole so much skin...but we're alright with not knowing those details.

There is a huge market for human body parts. They are routinely used in Republican convention rituals.

John Kerry might need some more skin. Hillary has worn out the skin she has. The market for used skin looks pretty good in Washington.

Why were the employees not alerted to this long before now? If he made over 200 UNAUTHORIZED orders, then someone, or more than one, had to know that he was doing this. Seems to me that this had to involve more than one person. Even tampering with the order forms etc. , something should have raised a red flag/

I would imagine the risk of theft for body parts and skin is pretty low. They probably didn't have any checks and balances in place for this. The amount per year was relatively low and there is probably waste of some sort when using them. It wouldn't be hard to imagine an extra $1500 a month in skin to a large hospital going unnoticed.

Hey! What's a little skin among friends? Christ sakes, It's just skin. We all shed a little of it every day. It's not like he was requisitioning penises from the morgue to sell too the VA.

Yes, but he was stealing skin that probably was meant for people who really needed it and he was making money off of it selling it to someone else. This is nothing to make jokes about and don't even start with the VA. I'm a veteran and I receive all my medical care there and your stupid joke doesn't even make me laugh. Show some respect for veterans if you're not one.

Does he have a color preference? The article left that out.

It's an A-Moral society we live in today. Get over it!

It is called Moral Relativism. If you can justify, rationalize, qualify and quantify what you do, then everything is acceptable. This is what has been taught in schools for decades - I heard it in the 70's. And if Common Core is used as the teaching model and standards, then it will only get worse. I have seen some of the curriculum. It is literally Marxist/Leninist based.

I don't know what schools you went to, but I never learned this in school. And I thought everyone that stealing and lying are not acceptable and much less in your job. I went to college in the 70's and I never heard any of this bullshit. And your parents, not teachers, are supposed to teach you the stealing is a crime and that crime does not pay.
