Why would a person do this?

To the person or people responsible for throwing a brick into the windshield of the blue van parked at the corner of Thrush and Nightingale: Just wanted to let you know that the van is used for transporting my patient to and from doctor’s appointments. The van belongs to an elderly couple who are 78 and 86 years old. The gentlemen has Alzheimer’s and his wife has been bed-bound since 1996. The insurance liability will not cover the windshield, so the wonderful couple will have to pay the full amount $185.

I bet if someone threw a brick at your windshield (assuming you would have a car) you would not be too happy. I seriously doubt that this letter will be read by the culprit(s), but on the off chance that it is; I hope this letter will have you think twice before damaging any other vehicles, or make you feel bad enough to pay for the damages yourself (no questions asked).

How much fun is it to damage an innocent person’s vehicle? There are many ways to have fun, all of which do not include vandalism!

    I would like to help this couple pay for their windshield. Perhaps the DR can help facilitate me sending this family a contribution- I bet there are others who would help as well?

    "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" (attributed to Edmund Burke). Good people have been doing nothing for far too long. You've been told to, and forced to, embrace the tolerance of evil as nothing more than a lifestyle choice. You want rampant evil to subside? The good people, do something!

    Lesson learned---install home security camera systems, put security gratings on all windows and doors, install sensors to alert you to intruder's presence. Keep cars in garages, not driveways and streets. Call te
