Rescue boats of the Jacob's Well Volunteer Marine Rescue Service were cut loose and vandalised. Rescues continued while the boats were disabled.
An 18 year old has been charged with offences (announced on a news break on televison just now). Judging from the television footage of the teenager as he was driven away in a police car, he's got no respect for authority and no idea of responsibility. He was filmed in the police car poking out his tongue at the cameras.
What do you do to instil responsibility and respect in idiots like this?
Years ago I worked for Telecom. The vandalism of public telephone boxes was rampant. What I hoped for was that one day the vandals would need to use a phone to call for help and find that they'd been vandalised. Even then I think that the blame would be on the phone company for not keeping the public phones working. Some phones were regularly vandalised and unfortunately noone saw the vandals in action so noone was caught.
If you see acts of vandalism taking place report them, it's the only way these people will be stopped. These days if you confront a vandal you might find yourself assaulted.
