Ambulances – What on earth makes people attack them?

This posting picks up on a most bizarre and appalling trend in vandalism – attacking/vandalising ambulances of all things!

The vast majority of folks will look upon an attack on an ambulance, or indeed ambulance staff, with utter disbelief yet such attacks are happening and far too often. The link below to the BBC website illustrates the problem:-

    Thoughts. Youth Clubs are a no1 for cuts not supporting the young leads to boredom nothing to keep active energetic minds involved in constructive things.
    Getting a criminal recor d is a badge to boast about.. The consequences of this long term for the person is not considered. Uniforms are regarded as a member of ‘The Authorities’ viewed with distrust. It is also ‘a laugh’ fun. They do not think that one day they may need an ambulance. Long sentences will not stop it it is just another bigger badge to boast about.. Education re social responsibilty and concern for others could help.Oh they also get mentioned in the papers,something to talk about..I am an ex youth worker, have we not learnt anything.!!??
