Canberra overpasses to get screened

By johnboy 1 May 2009 31

The Canberra Times reports that unbeknownst to us there has been a spate of rocks thrown onto roads from overpasses and now $2.4 million must be spent installing ugly screens to cage the animals in.

They’ve had these in NSW for years and yet rocks still seem to get onto roads and cars there.

Kids that throw rocks off overpasses need to spend some time in the clink. It’s a deliberate, malicious action with a predictable outcome.

I disagree!!

Kids who throw rocks off overpasses should be thrown off overpasses, preferably into the path of a large truck

LOL.

I still cannot imagine why these cretins would think it is a good idea. Even as kids, you would know the danger that this action would actually kill someone.

This will just challenge the rock throwers to get around them. cctv would be a better option surely!

Never seen West Side Story ant? Read any shakespeare? Chaucer? Tacitus? Plato?

I’m waiting for them to come out on DVD.

all this “no punishment” crap is leading exactly where we all thought it would. Kids are not equipped to deal with the real world, that’s why others are charged with raising them. Now we see how growing up without consequences is resulting in increasing numbers of kids who do things like this.

Which of us growing up in the 70s or before would have done something like this? Now we have to spend public money and uglify our streetscape, because of these criminals.

Actually all a lot of them need is a really good smack in the mouth. Knock a bit of reality back into them.

To be honest not enough people nowadays who deserve a smack in the mouth get one. I think the world would be a more pleasant place if people occasionally necessarily got knocked into their place

… put them in the clink, and let their parents join them for a spell. This crime is increasing, while responsible parenting is decreasing. It’s time irresponsible parents were reminded that having children doesn’t mean your input ends with collecting the baby bonus.
