PACTS EDITORIAL Beach attracts dangerous ones "' Tbew M« «oro« dttfwoutiy skk , people among u» ~ al!«•*, If not r*aide*t*,u^ are here on occasion. We haw quite a bit to fear from then, and there Is very little we can do for protection. A determined person ean commit almost any crime, and not much can be done to prevent It Bat ttaftt are deterrents. Matt of an. the ordinary criminal wont commit a crime except for material gain. Meat acts of violence abo have motivations (hat are basic route to detection and arrest You try to protect valuable property by making access difficult If you have strong enemies, you narrow the Odd of those you fear. In both cases, a food record of la* enforcement reduces the incidence. But crimes of vandalism defy ail fee rales of ordinary criminal , behavior, and teav* people virtually defenseless. If you live in an tsota ted bouse, you know that your TV antenna outside tefls a burglar that there's a nawnabie set inside. You can buy locks that nrffi increase the risk he takes in trying to get in. But what would yon do about the guy who would simply destroy the exposed antenna, for the ton of it? L&ewise, your car is designed to be difficult for an amateur to steal. But it's bard to make it invulnerable to vandab. In the old days, we had frequent vandalism of school h"iVflngf. and that was most of it But now we're getting into some particularly vkious acts of destruction, and these are a forecast of what may become deadly risks. Some days ago visitors to Bryan Beach found several seagulls wandering aimlessly about, each wfth a left wing broken by a gunshot wound. There have been many cases before of gulls being shot, but this PAUL HARVEY NEWS was thennrt reported instanced (he birds being crippled, and toft «ttv* to dte of thirst and starvation. A stalled car to beside the SurfsWe beach road. Every window is knocked out Another lime, a resident near the Pa«»aM» family member bad car trouble, left the car on the road all night and the next rooming found all gU» shattered Recently Precinct 1 and the County Engineer's Of Ike provided a puWk launch ramp and extensive parking space at Christina* Bay. T*o w«eks tgoit wmsmeoUooedat a Chile meeting that among things that would help was rest room*. Commissioner Dixie Brown was present Th* neat day two portable rest rooms were on the site, A week later, the door of one was torn partly oft By the nest week, the other had been thrown in the nearby canal. Informational and warning signs potted by the county are tore down, shot up or defaced. There Is a ramd-lbe-ckxfc patrol, but it can't keep a continuous watch on 12 miles of beach and beach road on Surfstde alone, much lew the other beach areas It just has to be assumed that the beach areas, at taut the sparw stretches, have beccow dangerous places for unwatched property, A person with motor trouble shouW have his car repaired or lowed to safety immediately Nothing of value should be left overnight unattended. Those who would destroy property tor fun are also a menace to We. So it must abo be assumed that there is risk for Individuals in being far separated from others at night This Is a regrettable facet of "progre»" as the beaches attract more and more people.
