It Makes Me Mad!

 Vandalism makes me mad, especially when it involves trees.  As you can see from the attached photos, central Rangiora was hit recently.  Several years’ growth goes in an instant of mindless (and probably drunken) idiocy.

It happened on a Friday night and although it is outside our house, we heard nothing.

We all lose from this sort of thing.

    This is a shame, what is annoying the most is the fact that is it wasn’t for alcohol, those people probably would be embarrassed in the fact that they did this.

    What should be installed in Rangiora is cameras & microphones to cover the main street and other CDB areas.

    The cost is negligible compared to other big-ticket items, and their presence also acts as a deterrence to other would-be opportunists.

      Thanks Andrew. There already are CCTV cameras in the centres of Rangiora and Kaiapoi. The Kaiapoi cameras were wrecked in the earthquake, but the Council very early on approved funding for their replacement, which shouldn’t be far off if they have not been installed already. The Rangiora cameras don’t cover the area where the vandalism took place – but even if we put more cameras in, tree-wrecking is just as likely to occur in residential areas. I’m not sure that microphones would help. These people didn’t make much noise!
