Vandalism on the Village Green!!!
The 'Village Green - this way' sign has been uprooted and dumped in a hedge. And some 'House For Sale' signs have also been pulled up and thrown around.
One minute we are a friendly Utopia, the next we are a community under seige.
It is fairly obvious that it is kids that are to blame - just a small minority of kids, however, and that they have done this because they hate our freedom.
I am a bit torn as to how to feel about this. I could feel angry at their actions and want to hunt them down and give them a good kicking, which I naturally do although I suspect them or their friends will then do it again going 'nya nya' because I can't guard the Village Green all the time. Or I could try to work out exactly why they thought it would be a fun thing to do, to see if there was anything at all I could do in order to stop them thinking that vandalising the village green was the best way to spend the evening.
I have read loads about this sort of thing and apparently it is not allowed to do both. You have to take one course of action or another.
The latter course of action - the 'working out' bit - would also make me no better than the perpetrators themselves, and if I'm going to do that I may as well go and uproot some signs myself, smash some windows in the Social Club and piss all over the graves in the churchyard before killing myself at the disrespect that I have shown to the householders who have had their signs interfered with.
I don't really fancy that.
