Letter: Goblin toppler’s lesson still not learned
First Published May 30 2014 05:23 pm • Last Updated May 30 2014 05:23 pm

I’m mad! The village idiots are still out there damaging artifacts that do not belong to them. Apparently the goblin toppler was not punished enough or fined enough, at least not enough to discourage another halfwit from damaging an irreplaceable artifact.

JMN was just as stupid; he left his initials and the date. Too bad he didn’t make a viral video of himself as the toppler did so we could see once again what dumb looks like.

Perhaps if we fined these vandals more, gave them some real jail time, threw in some serious community service like cleaning graffiti, picking up litter, cleaning public restrooms and made a public spectacle of them by plastering their names and pictures all over the state, they would think twice before vandalizing. That is, if they actually have any gray matter.
