Surveillance could halt vandalism

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, June 29, 2004

I am very disappointed about the vandalism in this city as compared to 15 years ago. Fifteen years ago we did not have a Renninger Park, the Big Brothers Big Sisters program or other programs that have developed over these recent years.

Many of the Capital Transit bus shelters have a window or two missing, and they have a lot of off-color, unimportant graffiti on them.

The lousy excuses of "restless youths" or the do-not-get-enough-attention-at-home types are no reason to destroy things like an oversized 3-year-old in a tantrum.

What's even more sickening is not realizing how fortunate it is that our country provides a 12-year education and more. In other countries, if your family is broke, you don't receive an education; you go to work.

I believe that surveillance cameras would be an excellent investment and help to enforce responsibility to these vandals.
