LETTER:Enough is enough with vandalism


Editor: Weekly we read or hear on the news about a cenotaph, war memorial, or cemetery being rudely defaced or damaged.

Enough is enough!

It’s time we lobby our elected officials to change the penalties from a slap on the wrist to severe jail time.

Too often, we read about Chatham cenotaph or the “holy roller” tank in London being vandalized. These are war memorials and should be treated with dignity. The damage to the cemeteries, either defacing the stones or knocking them over is the lowest of all crimes.

Perhaps some time in a cell would curb this stupid attitude of some people.
