Thugs slaughter animals and vandalise garden centre :

Permanently Banned
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1393106/Wythenshawe-park-Vandals-behead-18-birds-slaughter-frogs-fish.html

Vandals beheaded 18 birds, stamped a frog to death and poisoned hundreds of fish by pouring fertiliser into a pond after breaking into a family wildlife attraction. Police said the level of cruelty was 'shocking and distressing'. The yobs also caused more than 10, 000 worth of damage at the Horticultural Centre in Wythenshawe Park in Manchester, as they chopped down trees and smashed 130 windows.

They broke into the park some time between 4.30pm on Sunday and 10am the next day. Councillor Mike Amesbury, Manchester City Council's executive member for culture and leisure, said: 'This is a sickening act of cruelty and vandalism, causing significant damage to a centre which has been enjoyed by generations of people.

What went through the single brain cell between them when they were doing this?

Poor creatures, to die in such a horrible manner.

Sadistic scum like this rarely stop at animal cruelty and vandalism. They should face the death penalty as soon as they are 18 >_< We shouldn't have to put up with them. Once they've done something like this, they're complete monsters and there's no going back.

You are joking right?

Regarding the topic, I read about this earlier on the BBC and it is incredibly mindless especially for an amenity in a local area that benefits everyone.
By the powers invested in me by tabloid-reading imbeciles, I pronounce you guilty of paedophilia!

No, I'm not joking. I thoroughly mean it, we need very harsh punishments for crimes such as this. Ok, maybe the death penalty is too disproportionate, but it would be no loss if they died. Corporal punishment, perhaps. Throw them in the stocks.

It's idiotic and vicious behaviour, but the death penalty, seriously? That's even worse.

I'm more angry that the word "yob" was used by the journalist.

That is not disspasionate.

I don't know what it means, but it doesn't sound apropriate.

"Yob" is similar to "hooligan" or "chav".

Basically, calling them louts. Like "thugs", actually.

In this instance it sounds like "yob" is a fair description. It might not be dispassionate, but that's the Mail for you.

The mail is given to three things, hyperbole about house prices, hyperbole about people who aren't its readership and hyperbole about its influence and clarity.

That's what I infered. I agree with the writer, but I'm really bothered by the merging of the opinion and news pieces in many outlets.

To be more on topic, far worse happens to people and seems deserving of the rage being directed here.

They're certainly vandals, but while this is worse than some grafiti, it's certainly not the sort of crime which a person's life should be destroyed for.

Seriously? Yes, what they did is very bad, and they should certainly be punished. But the death penalty? Shichibukai, you're starting to sound like the kind of people who actually comment on Daily Mail news stories.

It's the Daily Mail. A bastion of journalistic integrity, it is not.

If these thugs are acting like animals, then you yourself are guilty of wanting to butcher animals.

I think they should be imprisoned. I generally think that animal cruelty should be punished by imprisonment, not a fine(as it often is). But death penalty is too much IMHO

@Victorinox. No, that's a Insane Troll Logic. He's guilty only of wanting to butcher people who behave like animals.

I think those people need an exemplary punishment. Death penalty is too much, but I don't see a reason why public lynching and whipping (say, 20 whip hits a day, for a month, in a public square) and 10 years of servitude to the institution they damaged, wouldn't be nice to have just for this once.

I think that no matter what, the death penalty is always too much, but that's not the point.

Still, that's a really mindless act. Wonder what might get into their heads.

Death penalty is a safety measure, not a punishment.

After all, you can't punish the dead.

My mistake. But yeah, let's whip'em good. Heck, invite part of the public to take part of law enforcement!

I really don't know whether to laugh or cry at people getting so worked up over animals that they want to murder people.
