Vandalism Must StopJ
Relieving the wanton vandalism which has been occurring in Tuscarawas County, and especially in Dover and New Philadelphia, must stop. The Daily Reporter offers a $250 reward for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the damage done to the Matthew Ellis home in New Philadelphia Monday night or in the recent breaking of windows in 14 autos in the same city.
The reward offer is made with the belief that it is long past the time for concerted action by the community to put an end to the epidemic of utter destruction of private and public property. No arrests have been made in any of the major vandalism because the hoodlums strike and get away fast. These factors indicate they are more than “kids.”
City and county authorities should be encouraged to take definite steps to clear streets and highways of hot-rodders, night-riding gangs and any other youths who have no logical excuse for zipping around in the early-morning hours. Only such drastic measures will help stop the vandalism.
This county is fast losing its reputation for having a low juvenile delinquency rate. The courts and all other authority is being flaunted by those who are responsible for the wave of vandalism. Only by making examples of a few will others understand that civil disobedience will not be tolerated.
