I can’t understand the mentality of youths such as the ones mentioned in this news report;

The driver of a gritting lorry narrowly escaped injury when a snowball containing a brick crashed through the window of his vehicle.

A gang of up to 15 youths targeted the Torfaen council vehicle in freezing temperatures at Pontnewydd at 1030 GMT on Monday night.

After stepping into the road to slow it down, the gang threw snowballs – one of which contained the brick.

Just what did these kids get out of an attack like this? It’s the same frame of mind as those idiots who attack the emergency services. What exactly is the point of targetting an ambulance or a fire engine? What point does it serve, other than to delay (or worse) those dedicated individuals who are trying to help people in trouble?

I just don’t get it.

  1. I read that article earlier and thought pretty much the same thing.
