Statue Toppled for no Reason


Quote:
BOSTON -- Vandals toppled a 127-year-old bronze statue of a Civil War soldier, snapping off its head and musket.

Authorities believe the 1,000-pound statue on the Boston Common was pushed over Saturday night. The statue of the Union soldier is part of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, the city's most elaborate memorial.

I agree with KellyC on this one... These vandals need to be taken in public, stripped bare, and shot in the mouth.

shame...

the HS that I attended had a Virgin Mary statue, and the rival HS beheaded it and cut off the hands.

Upon graduation our graduating class donated a large sum of money to replace it.

Didn't the desecration of Jebediah Springfield teach them anything about civic values? For shame. I hope the people they were trying to impress beat the crap out of them.

Fine.
If I caught 'em, they'd never be bored again. They would be cleaning every monument in Boston with Brasso and thier own toothbrush. Boston never would've looked so good.

I guess I can claim to have seen it before it was toppled. *Sniff* I thought it was inspiring.

how do you know this was done "for no Reason" ?

I don't condone what was done, but that doesn't mean the people that did it didn't have what they believed to be a legitimate reason to do it.
Honestly though, it was probably just a bunch of fuck headed, piss drunk jocks / soon-to-be-Army recruits

Bingo.

For punishment, I would hope for nothing short of a public stoning. That's ridiculous...hell, I want to personally be the first one to bust the juvenile-bastards in the jaw with a stone.

It is tough and I wish it had not happened. It is so mindless in fact that maybe it was not done on purpose. There was a statue that went down a while back in San Diego. Everyone was pissed and they were looking for the perpetrators and it turned out that the internal structure of the statue just failed. It broke on its own. I don't know the details of this thing though. . .

Am I the only one laughing my ass off? Not at the toppling, but at the mental image of what it would've looked like to see a truckload of asshats get squashed by the statue they toppled.

Isn't that a bit extreme?

How about just prosecuting them with willful damage of public property. That's what they're guilty of after all.

Vandals put paint on a Confederate Statue here in Louisville not too long ago. The University wants to tear it down because its not good for their "racial profile". Things like this go on to show how much people don't care about our history.
