Hmmm; Pendarves Road, Tresillian Road, Saracen Way, Church Road and Glasney Place. Not the most desirable of areas, so no surprise at the Criminal damage. One hopes that the low life that did this will be caught soon, but as ever they will get off with a fine or suspended sentence.

I have contacts within the local constabulary and the police pretty much know who these idiots are who commit these petty, annoying crimes, and bigger more serious crimes too. (Mind you I think all crime is 'serious' and inexcusable.) The problem is is proving they did it.
More than once, in frustration, I've wanted to go round to their houses and cause them as much grief as they cause others. Believe me, I could as well.
Thankfully it's just my revenge fantasy and it will stay that way. I might punish an innocent person by mistake.
What isn't a fantasy is that when these people are caught they get tagged, or suspended sentences and never really suffer for their crimes like their victims do. They're usually past caring about themselves or other people either.
Makes you wonder what to do with them, apart from cart them of to an island far, far away where they can't harm society any more...

Its a sad state of affairs ,when you cant park your car without it getting vandalised. What do these mindless idiots get from doing it ? Once or rather, if theyre caught they should be handed a harsh sentence and be made to pay towards the damage they have caused. But they will probably get a slap on the wrist and told not to do it again. Hardly a deterrent.
