Wordless Wednesday

I'm handing you over to the BBC as words fail me..........

Vandals wreck children's centre.

Vandals wrecked a newly-refurbished children's centre the night before it was due to reopen.
Attackers threw rocks and stones at Whaddon Children's Centre in Cheltenham on Easter Monday, smashing 67 windows.

When staff arrived at the centre on Tuesday for their first day of work, they found shards of glass littering the classrooms inside.
Three children aged 11, 13 and 15, have been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage, Gloucestershire Police said.

The centre, run by Gloucestershire County Council, provides 65 full-time daycare spaces for youngsters.
It had undergone a government-funded £713,000 rebuilding and enlargement programme.
Two rooms have been sealed off while workmen repair the damage, which is estimated to run into thousands of pounds.

Centre manager Joanne Rack said: "It's very sad. There's equipment here that has never been played with that we'll now have to throw away.
"There are shards of glass everywhere and when you're dealing with babies and small children you can't take any chances."

This whole incident is absolutely abhorrent to me. I can't even think of a horrendous enough punishment for them!

Three children aged 11, 13 and 15!?! Little gits! Where were their parents? Don't they ask children where they are going / what they are doing? Encourage appropriate behaviour? I'd wring their necks the little sods

Quite honestly, I want to say I can't believe this - but I can.

Vandals doing things like this are getting younger and younger, and it seems their parents just don't care.

I beg to ask when we as a society are going to join forces, stand up and say "Enough is enough."

If people are old enough to make a baby, then they should be old enough to take responsibility for that Child's actions.

This is a truly sickening act - but one that is repeated every day in other parts of the country/world, because some parents cannot be bothered to bring up their children with a decent understanding of whats right and whats wrong.
