Unfortunately in Oman, there has been a new trend on the move up in the minds of our our young youth that is much cause for concern; vandalism.
Children, youngsters and young adults of different nationalities (and no this isn't limited to Omanis, so stop your dissing already) often look to different targets to take out their frustration, rage, and feelings on and that pretty much includes anything that falls in their path. Whether it was another human being, an animal or just public property.
The sad thing is that none of these youngsters instead of having to focus that energy at discussing it quietly with their friends or family or relatives they take it out in a frightening way that cause not just disruption for other people but loss of good time and money on things that had been worked on for a tremendous amount of time only to be trashed around with by their hands.
While local laws prohibit such acts by both the ROP and Muscat Muncipality; it is quite ironic that when such law enforcement figures pass by such atrocities that they do nothing about it. All too bad, though.
So should we stand aside when acts are done, or should we take an active stand and act as the law asks and dictates us to?
A question only we can answer between ourselves.
