The Crime of Littering

willful asinine stupidity is a crime in youth

Out on my regular round I passed an expensive SUV parked-up by the side of the marina.  There was a self-satisfied young guy in the driver’s seat, and the passenger was an older woman.  They had the windows wound down and some god-awful music playing too loud.  As I watched the guy finished his burger, then his drink, and just dropped all the McDonald’s disgusting detritus out the window ~ deliberate littering on a major scale.  And they were parked just yards from a litter bin.  People like that disgust me.  Trash applies to the whole scenario.

Most places, this donkey-town included, also have a problem with purloined and dumped shopping carts.  What kind of destructive halfwit jerk goes to the trouble of stealing a shopping trolley, wheeling the damn thing half-a-mile, and then throwing it into the sea?

I’m afraid I am still very judgemental, and a prey to black and white thinking, because I would take a leaf out of the Singaporean criminal justice system and have people like the jerk in the SUV arrested and flogged.  Mindlessly anti-social behaviour such as stealing and dumping shopping carts in the dock would qualify for a spell in the chokey.

Some say that boys will be boys.  And it’s all just youthful high-spirits.  All I know is that some people aren’t worth the air they use up.
