NO RESPECT Senseless yobs hurl white paint over RAF’s Bomber Command memorial – vandalising it for FOURTH time in six years

BRAINLESS yobs have sparked fury by hurling paint over a memorial to airmen who died fighting for Britain in the Second World War - for the fourth time in just six years.
The Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park, central London, was covered with white paint overnight.

Police are investigating and CCTV is already being trawled by Scotland Yard.
The £7 million bronze statue was built to honour the 55,000 men of Bomber Command who lost their lives defending their country.
But the memorial has already been damaged four times since it was opened by the Queen in June 2012.
A photograph from Lt Col Paul Smyth showed the heartbreaking damage to the sculpture in a tweet captioned: "Utterly tragic. #lestweforget ."
Others have expressed their horror after the image was shared this morning.
Stephen Pringle wrote: "Paint can be cleaned, the sacrifice made by the young men of Bomber Command endures, and will endure. I fear there is still too little understanding of what they went through."
Half of all airmen lost their lives fighting the Nazis



The RAF Bomber Command was founded in 1936 to act as a deterrent against aerial attacks but the outbreak of war three years later saw it thrust to the frontline of the fight against Nazi Germany.
Bomber Command crews suffered tragically high casualty rates - with almost one in two losing their lives.
Of 125,000 recruits, more than 55,500 were killed, another 8,400 were injured and nearly 10,000 became prisoners of war.
The airmen showed incredible courage, often flying at night against a gauntlet of German fighters and anti-aircraft fire.
In the closing months of the war, operations shuch as the raid on Dresden in February 1945 saw the city destroyed and thousands of civilians killed.
The attacks had a devastating effect on the German war effort and helped bring about victory for the allied forces.


Philippa Ratcliffe added: "The mind numbing senselessness of this makes me speechless and bloody angry."
Jo Collins said: "Absolute f****rs. This really makes my blood boil."
The memorial was attacked by thugs who daubed 'Islam' in red graffiti in May 2013.
The vandalism came just days after Fusilier Lee Rigby had been murdered on the streets of Woolwich, South East London.
The damage took around £7,000 to repair.
Andrew Patterson, 31, later pleaded guilty to vandalising the memorial.

Yes they are

But the actions of the few

Should not detract from the many

Who are good upstanding citizens

Our youth are great

I know I have three

And 8 more growing up to be great

They do it and get away with it as the police are both scattered thinly in the ground and they’re toothless once they’re caught.

It should be legal to line them up in stocks and use them as target practice.

Not my collective kids thanks, I want absolutely nothing to do with the scum responsible for this outrage. They are oxygen thieves and deserve nothing from society except scorn.

Then the parents should be made to suffer bloody hard to start to educate their wayward offspring. Stocks is one way but named and shamed is another.
We are too soft on so called kids letting off steam. They know no one is allowed to touch them. So I vote to 'touch' them bloody hard.!!!
