Filthy Scumbag bastards!


Apologies for my title but I am positively seething. Enraged I am. Impotent, the only thing I can do is rant here when I would like to turn into Chuck Norris and fucking go on a hunt and do some serious head kicking.
Allow me to explain. There is a small park near my building, a little oasis in a sea of concrete. In this little park is a tiny playground, a cute harmless affair with a swing, slide, one of those horse heads on a big spring thingies that babies seem to like and a little woonden railing around it to keep dogs from crapping all over the sand and wood chips.
Surrounding this little playground is a patch of grass, two benches where ould lads and ladies like to sit on warmer days and watch the world go by. There are a four raised flower beds, which up until last Sunday had a whole profusion of flowers starting to some up, daffodils, crocuses and other stuff ( I'm no plant expert but they looked pretty).
This morning, as I made my way back from the shop, I cut through this little park and slammed to a halt in dismay.
It has been destroyed.
Some fucker or fuckers have kicked all the railing out of the kids' play ground. They have set fire to the swings, one is burnt all the way through, the other is a mangled heap of plastic, dangling from one rope. They had obviously tried to burn the little horse too, its blackened melted head will no longer make kids squeal in delight. The benches have been spray painted with all manner of graffiti, the flowers are gone, yanked up, crushed, trampled, some of them flung to die and wither on the track scored the grass. There is broken brown glass everywhere.
I know I've had a sickie week and am probably a bit over sensitive, but I swear I felt like crying when I saw it.
Why, why would someone do something like this? Why destroy something so pretty and harmless. What pleasure did the bastards take from doing this? Did they get any or was it just 'something to do?'
WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

Having lived in your part of the world for many years I know exactly how important the little parks that dot the city are. They're spaces to breathe and reflect and pause for a few minutes and remember the important things in life. The people who've trashed this park probally need this space more than they'll ever realise. The corporation will tidy it up and replant the flowers and replace the swings until the next time.....

If you can get a good vantage point overlooking the park, FMC, I'd recommend staking it out with a quality sniper's rifle, perhaps a classic like the Dragunov SVD or any other with good night-vision optics.

I'm with Footie, they should be shot - or made to clean it up on their hands and knees with a toothbrush. Feckin destructive little cretins.

It is disgusting, and the pointlessness of it makes me really mad. I don't understand the minds of people who see something fragile and beautiful and their first instinct is to destroy it.
I've been plotting my fantasy styled justice all morning. Best I can come up with is to lie in wait, dressed like a ninja, wait for the first snicker and flick of a lighter, then come out soundlessly from the shadows and then kick the living shit of of them.
I"d leave them gagged, taped and naked to the benches, arses facing skywards with breadcrumbs scattered all over them( there are som big gulls round here and some even bigger perverts) Perhaps with one daffodil artfully placed so that it seemed to be growing from their rectum.

Happened around my way too. As Daydreamer said, the council will probably replant and replace everything and clean stuff up...but if it keeps happening, they won't bother as it's a waste of money.

There used to be a playground a few minutes from my house, locals had fought for literally 20 years to get one put in as there was nothing but houses in the area, not even a post box or public phone, and so after a lot of campaigning it was put in, complete with all weather surface swings slides, etc.

But within a few weeks it had been vandalised and within a few months, destroyed. It was eventually removed altogether a few years ago and that area is now an overgrown rat infested waste land.

I think the title of your post was correct, filthy scumbag bastards indeed.

I like your daffodil in rectum idea though!

The answer to your final question is: "Their arses are unkicked".

Would frequent arse kicking help GB? If it would I sign up to administer it. Front and centre.

This seems to be an Irish thing - random vandalism. I have often commented on this with American friendsm, how the excellent public utilities we have in San Francisco would be stand a good chance of being destroyed in Ireland. I remember when I was a kid, periodically trees were planted along O'Connell street in Limerick, withing days the saplings would be snapped in two. It is not something you see in most countries. Even when I lived in the East Village in NY back in the 80's the playground in Tompkins Square park was never vandalised, despite the fact that the park had a very sizeable junkie / homeless encampment at the time. Kids facilities were considered inviolable.

About 10 years ago, when I was first dating my wife, (who is American), we were in a bar in SF with another Irish friend. The barman handed my friend $10 in quarters and asked him to fill the juke box and pick a bunch of songs. My friend commented to my wife that this would never happend in Ireland because most of the money would never make its way into the juke box.

It also seems to be something that crosses class boundries, when I was in UCG, it wasn't uncommon for drunken students to commit stupid acts of vandalism and theft.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

I've lived abroad and I've lived here and I've seen good and bad in other countries so I'm not going with it's a typically Irish thing. I think in any major city you are going to get the scum with the good. It makes me very angry though, this wanton vandalism and pointless destruction. Hence my post.
Anyway, John, welcome.

I love your bound, gagged and breadcrumbed plan, fmc. The daffodil would be poetry. ut I tink it would be a mistake to dress as a ninja. I think you should dress as fatmammycat! 4" heels woulf get theri attention immediately. Heels make good weapons too (I often wonder why women are still allowed to wear heels on airoplanes) and flashes of your beautiful ankles (in fishnet stockings, would be good)would dazzle and confound them.

A buxom bosom, where you could store the bum daffodils for later, a horsewhip, a cape, black as midnight and something extra to etch fear into their very living souls: a chainsaw. The great Glamourpuss Chainsaw massacre. Urban legend would spread throughout the world and you'd be a hero. Towm mayors woud embarrass themselves by trying to get into your knickers at ribbon-cutting events and soon, one day Hollywood will call.

Go kick arse fmc and leave a trademark sweet floral arrangement in every bum cleavage so the know who has passed their way.

Hum, maybe you're right Sam, I do have furry handcuffs... and a whip! And riding crop!! And...well never mind, I'll ask Sexy Beauty of she wants to be my deputy, she's a high heel aficionando too.

Hey FMC

I agree of course the scumbags are not Ireland specific, (you could get shot in the States!), and graffitti used to be a huge problem in most US cities, but I do think there is something specific to Ireland WRT mindless destruction of property. Although, that said to my mind it was much worse in the 70's and 80's than it is today, and that probably has a lot to do with the social conditions that existed at that time.

Wish I could answer what was wrong with people. Still trying to figure that out myself. Best I can come up with is that their parents completely fucked up and passed it down when having them. But even that answer doesn't always work for me.

Still working on it. If you come up with a good answer, please let me know.

Blogger fatmammycat said...

I'd be delighted to get to the bottom of this one myself. I think some people are just totally self centered and devoid of any sense of civic duty. And not just kids. People who don't clean up after their dogs, people who empty car ashtrays onto the street, peole who throw trash on the ground rather than walk a few feet to a bin. It is endless.

But, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier

isn't solid, however what if you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean "Filthy Scumbag bastards!" is a little plain. You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and note how
they create news titles to get viewers to click. You might
try adding a video or a pic or two to get people excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
