I have some questions after hearing about this next story. First, what the heck is wrong with people? Second — and yes I kind of mean this in a “Linda Blair” kind of way — but what possesses people to do some of the heinous crap that they do? You’ve either got to be a complete scumbag or just devoid of any human decency.
Apparently, “vandals” cut down a flagpole at a Washingtonville, New York 9/11 memorial to firefighters last week.
According to the Times Herald-Record:
The severed pole was discovered and reported early Wednesday morning. Washingtonville Police Chief Brian Zaccaro said the culprits used a tool to cut through the composite material at about four to five feet from the base, and scrawled a message in marker on the part of the pole that remained standing.
He didn't want to disclose the message while the investigation was getting started.
Police suspect the same vandals also pushed over and damaged the sign for St. Mary's Parish Center, about a half mile away. An eagle figure that had been removed from the top of the cut-down flagpole was left next to the toppled church sign.
The people that did this are losers, plain and simple. Their mothers didn’t give them enough attention, or their dad’s weren’t present to tell them why doing something like that is wrong. They took a beautiful monument and defiled it because they hate this country and themselves.
There have been no arrests made as of yet, and Washingtonville police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to contact the detectives in charge of the investigation.
We can ask what is wrong with people all we want. But as I’ve said previously, some people just want to watch the world burn.
