I was shocked when I read this - how can people be so evil.

People are so disappointing

Ignorant, unfeeling and lacking the imagination to understand what the memorial represents.

It beggars belief.

Heartbreaking to see.

I wept today when i read this. Something very similar happened in Dumfries &Galloway last week. The problem is that here in Scotland there is so much hate and division, families have been ripped apart by bigotry and the children have grow up thinking hate and violence is normal.

The depths some people will sink to.

What hope is there for the miserable specimens who did this? They will surely be facing lives of petty criminality, poverty and a pointless existence in and out of various prisons and institutions.

Maybe some of them will find some kind of purpose in life. Maybe not. Sad and sorry creatures.

There's something radically wrong with the brains of these people. Let's hope Karma isn't far behind them !

NotSpaghetti Sun 02-May-21 09:57:06

Is it evil?
It's certainly horrible.

Blondiescot Sun 02-May-21 10:04:40

How else would you describe it, NotSpaghetti? The dictionary defines evil as 'morally wrong or bad, immoral or wicked', so I'd say the actions of the scum who did this would fit that bill.

Despicable human beings
Really wish they could be found, and that age doesn’t mean their identities are hidden if they are.

Gwenisgreat1 Sun 02-May-21 10:12:57

Just hope they are proud of themselves!! (sarcastic)

Casdon Sun 02-May-21 10:23:38

Idiots. There’s far more serious and dangerous offences than desecration going on though unfortunately.

What is wrong with people! What has happened to simple respect? It must be heartbreaking to lose a child but to then have the memorial vandalised like this - words fail me

FannyCornforth Sun 02-May-21 10:26:53

It seems like a demented cry for help.
There must be something very wrong with the perpetrators.
Scary.

EllanVannin Sun 02-May-21 10:29:31

Are people born evil or is it the environment that they're brought up in ?

FannyCornforth Sun 02-May-21 10:32:05

Ellan I think that it's a bit of both; a perfect storm like Hindley or the killers of Bulger.
All the wrong things at the wrong time.

Bridgeit Sun 02-May-21 10:38:31

The thread is about desecration, I’m sure we all understand that there are many many other types of terrible behaviour taking place .......... sadly those that do these things really don’t care.. & probably don’t give it a moments thought .. you have to wonder what is happening in their own lives if they resort to this behaviour.

Squiffy Sun 02-May-21 10:53:10

Sickening.

Casdon Sun 02-May-21 10:55:57

It’s part of the same continuum Bridgeit I think, people who are disaffected with the rest of society. Both are acts of terrorism to different degrees.

Looks like the sort of thing horrible little kids would do with no thought for the hurt they cause. Badly brought up little [email protected] Fine them ,make them clean it up and fine their parents,too.

My elder sister is buried in a very well to do area in Surrey. She died age 3 days old in 1942. As I live far away I don't get to visit her grave often but about 20 years ago I found the graveyard overgrown with bracken 4 feet high. When I uncovered the gravestone someone had carved three swastikas into the stonework. A stonemason recut the whole face of the stone. A very upsetting experience.

They should bring back the humilation of public flogging. A slap on the wrist does not work on reprobates.
These vandals are offspring of people who should have been sterilised at birth.

Alegrias1 Sun 02-May-21 15:36:56

WTF?

I live in Fife. This is a dreadful, shocking thing. The perpetrators were probably high on something and should be punished. Eugenics might be a bit extreme. angry
