Dodging bullets

Hare: Dripper
On On: Maida Vale Oval

First, a very brief run review:

A good run with copious false trails and one (as coined by Skippy) ridiculous trail (an extra bit of useless loop near the end of the run).

After the recent window break-ins, Leapfrog has been staying behind to guard the cars. I mentioned to Red Dwarf how I had noted broken glass at the bottom of the Zig-Zag on the way to the run. So, imagine my dismay as I drove home to see that two cars now parked there (at the bottom of the zig-zag) had their windows smashed. And between the cars was a black sports bag.

So I performed a U-turn and parked behind them. Sure enough, it was the same as with our cars. Some kind of lever had been used to smash the glass, with a rear window also being smashed on the big 4WD. Everything was strewn around inside, even worse than our cars. My main concern (and hope) was that I had just interrupted the culprits, but no such luck. I didn’t want to touch anything, so I waited about half an hour to see if the car owners would return, but presumably they were out for a walk. With the kids getting upset in the car, I checked in the black sports bag, but it was only cables and stuff–taken from one of the cars I guess.

So there is some absolute dickhead (to put it nicely) whose Sunday past-time is cruising the carparks of the hills, and smashing cars to get their contents. It is obviously not an isolated incident.

So some poor people returned home to wrecked cars full of broken glass. The only silver lining being that it wasn’t us again.

But the run was good.

On On,
El Keeno
