A Little Light Demolition

Under cover of the gale, I see that the bus stop in Westgate’s Westbrook Avenue has been almost demolished by vandals. They must have been using a lump hammer. One might have thought though that the residents of the houses opposite might have heard or seen something?

Believe it or not I have seen young male teenagers break these - deliberately running full tilt into them!
The bus company is not interested in prosecuting, when we called them they said it was too much trouble to get the police involved as they wouldn't actually get any compensation paid to them anyway.

Stop blaming the kids; dont they have issues? Could have been the wind?

The wind???? R U serious????
Anyone who believes that must be as big a moron as the local vandals!
Or maybe a lefty pinko social worker.
Or maybe one of the local community officers whose answer to antisocial kids is to give them Macdonalds vouchers for free unhealthy grub.

Sorry 8.24pm! I was not actually expecting to be taken seriously.
Got you going though!

Why are the young people of Thanet blamed for every thing that goes wrong? perhaps they have always been blamed. They are an easy target with no right to reply.
This shelter could have been smashed by someone of any age.
Do not report to the bus company if you see happen phone the police.

4pm anon - the youths have every right of reply - if they were interested or literate they could anyway.
They are not blamed for everything - for example no one has blamed them for the Turner Fiasco!
And I have seen them smash these shelters, its not OAPs.
Don't be stupid.
Yes I did ring the Police but they said the bus company have to support the prosecution and they won't - so no-one gets prosecuted.
And you probably mean "Llamedos" at least thats the conventional spelling.
Maybe its different in Fanet!

I suppose it's how we choose to define youth, although I will admit to seeing the kids from Hartsdown school knocking the glass out of one shelter last year over the lunch period.

kids do minimal damage around Thanet!
Just look around to see what damage is being done by the TDC, and they are adult (?)
For instance, if the roads were slightly wider, there would be fewer car crashes (simple).
Now they are mucking about, trying see what shoddy crap they are going to use on the Dreamland site.(I bet it's what no one wants, whatever they decide).
I still shudder at the thaught of '0' water.
Maybe we should sue them for negligence.
