A short drive to theft and destruction


“The man who was once starved may revenge himself upon the world not by stealing just once, or by stealing only what he needs, but by taking from the world an endless toll in payment of something irreplaceable, which is the lost faith.” Anaïs Nin

In the blink of an eye these two youngsters transformed themselves from being bored grade school students into hardened vandals and thieves as they stole this bike from its sheltered location and later disassembled it so that the frame was the only thing not destroyed.

 This series of graphic photos dramatically displays the almost instantaneous of two young boys seeking something to do into a couple of thugs waiting for their case file to be called in either adult court or juvenile hall.

The ring leader in this scenario from hell is the boy with the glasses who manages to persuade his friend to join him in this afternoon of destruction.

If you have been following my blog you will readily notice these boys as the topic of conversation for a while. The smaller kids mother has given him free rein and he is an agent who goes about doing what he pleases.

  1. Hope the bike isn’t yours!


    • Good point. A mother had parked the bike there in the schoolyard and was teaching her young daughter how to ride. She left for the longest period of time. The two precocious youth stmbled upon the bike, took out all their personal frustrations on it and then threw it by the wayside. The bike lay there all day. Someone that evening rescued it from the park. It was a strange situation. Thanks for writing. Enjoy the day. Watch where you leave your own cycle. 🙂

      • Yes, my son’s bike was in my own backyard. And I had left it for just a week at the most. Over memorial holiday, it was gone when we came back from our mini holiday. And it was a youth bike!
