    There are just no words i can put here on these complete Idiots.
    Why oh why must things like this be done,is there no respect left in our Society amongst some of the Younger set!
    My dear Uncle and father served with Bomber Command along with many many others and they surely do not deserve this,God rest all their Souls,they would be turning in their Graves .
    I do hope (but dont hold my Breath) that when caught these louts will be givin the full treatment that they deserve,but as always what happens! A slap on the wrist "You naughty Boys"
    One day the Law will wake up to these terrible Vandals and possibly pass a much heavier penalty that is now in force!
    This and other sorts of Vandalisation is costing the World Millions !

    This makes me really angry Very Angry!

    Vernon, it is a global problem.
    Some of todays society have no respect for anything.
    To them it is just something they can destroy to get their kicks.

    Is there no end to all this Insanity!
    Dont lock them up thats far too easy these days as Prisons are more like Hotels.
    Find a way of really Punishing these sorts! Cut off a hand,take out an Eye ,or whatever may i say may deter these Louts from doing these dastartly things!
    I certainly am not ne for Corporal Punishment but seems that may be the only solution now!
    Cheers

    Des, you are right there but the 'do good' brigade would never allow it to happen.

    Society has gone soft on so many crimes now it has become a joke.

    Last week a guy charged with murder and his brief asked for bail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    The judge rightly refused.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    Lately I'm reading Richard Jeffries https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Jefferies a Victrian naturalist. I was astonished to find that, in the 1880s, he writes of the arson of farmers ricks and how the fires were always within 5 miles of the village and probably set by the same people who had scythed the hay and straw. Culprits when arrested and asked why the did it, replied that 'they do not know'. He thinks it similar to the motivation of those who lay rails and iron chairs across railway lines. He speculates it comes from the dumb hatred of those who have little for those who are owners. He says that it is futile to feed men's minds with education when they have empty bellies.
    I'm amazed such mindless vandalism was around in the 1880s.
