Property’s Owners Meeting – July 11th 2007
Some more information about the Bus Shelter destruction on Cryus Ave came out at last nights property owners meetings.
Did someone see the kids breaking up the shelter?
For now, a nameless guy saw some kids with a garbage pail banging into the glass at 4 am and the the kid was doing it is about 17 or 18 years old.
The guy supposedly called the police but the police never came. (Although the times article said that it was repaired due to a 311 call.)
Then sometime over the next day or two, someone else rounded up about 4 kids and brought them to the guy who witnessed it and he pointed out one kid.
The guy who identified the kid, recognized his father, when he confronted the father he responded…
Recently, the city had started to installed the brand new bus shelters in our neck of the woods.
Just as soon as it was put up, it was covered in graffitti, and the very next day it was destroyed.
Today we found it with a note on it. Asking parents to ask their kids, who and why! We agree.
We asked around, and we gathered that the ones causing the bus shelter destruction are most likely the pre-teen crowd.
Looks like someone got a little excited and jumped the curb last night.
In doing so, they destroyed a bus shelter located on Lois ave, while leaving their bumper behind.
