And in related news EVERYONE'S car insurance premiums will now be going up as a direct result.

Isn't vandalism harmless fun with no consequences whatsoever...er no it isn't.,

Imo if they catch the perps they should let the victims pour petrol over them and set them on fire. That'd be more satisfying justice than a referral order or Asbo that the perps will laugh at.
