    And the best thing is the perpatrators can only expect a slap on the wrist thanks to our limped d*** court system.

    There was also vandelism in Witless Bay a few years ago with a lobster fisherman having all his pots burnt.

    Maybe it was the same people?

    It's high time the justice system came down hard on ALL crime. This would be an excellent case to start due to the extent of damage to several businesses. The crown prosecutors should stop making side deals such as having a crook plead guilty to one or two charges and dropping the rest. By dropping the charges, the next time they go to court, it makes their record look better than it actually is. NOT in Canada though - the do gooders have taken over and all they'll get is a slap on the wrist.

    I can never understand the rationale behind penalties for vandalism.... Here are these low-lifes causing hundreds of thousands worth of damage and they get a slap in the wrist, as if the offence was simply scratching a car. This is a bigger issue than broken windows... These low-lifes are ruining businesses and communities, and they should pay dearly for it. Enough is enough.

    J from all over, you are so right. grave yards, tour buses, cabins etc vandelized over the years. where are the vandels now? home planning the next one. I always say, if your going to commit a crime, do it in newfoundland.

    I think that those vandals should be punished severely for their vicious,cruel acts as well as their names published so the towns residents will know exactly who the culprits are for their safety. As far as I'm concerned the punishment should fit the crime no matter what age they are!!!

    Sounds like local youths; I hope the community has the sense to run them out of town.

    O'Brien's Tours has been bringing me & my daughter back to Bay Bulls almost annually; we love the tours they give. I hope they can continue to make a go of it.

    Nothing even remotely funny about this one, Jake. Maybe it's time people did the law's job for them, since the courts seem unwilling or unable to do it. Time to bring back the lash!!!

    Don't worry by's, me and Malachy got this one. We'll have it solved right after we head to the Duke, sipping beers while standing around looking sexy and making funny jokes.

    Undoubtedly the handy work of moronic losers. Senseless acts of vandalism against hardworking people who actually support the community.
