Default Community Comes to Rescue of 93-Year-Old WWII Veteran

These 2 kids need a serious fixin'

What has happened to this country? I can point to three locations the parents, social media crap and the so-called education system.

The kids need to pay for this act and not the parents!

The community and even around the nation have come together on word this happened.

The last month or so had been really tough for one WWII Veteran in Texas. Not only did 93-year-old Purple Heart recipient Elbert Wood lose his wife last month, but when he returned home from a doctor’s appointment earlier this week, he discovered the inside of his home had been vandalized. His walls, his furniture, and even his TV had been spray painted by two boys. But before you lose all faith in people, watch what happened in the aftermath of that despicable crime.

Bigcountry,

Another wonderful example of what we have generated and developed over the past 20 years. No discipline, no respect, no values and probably no correct parenting. I can detect a possibility of parents who are permissive who may want to be friends and not parents! How about you! They sure did not teach them respect. Actually the boys committed a felony by crossing the threshold to do damage to the property.
I would not have even considered anything like that and especially with elderly folks to boot! I would not have been half as scared of the law as I would have been my dad! He would have beat my A--! And that would have not been the end not to mention working it off repaying the old guy!
But what did we hear! Oh Poor little guys! They cried and said they were Sorry! WOW~What else?????? Good thing it was not one of my kids! But to be thankful never had any major issues with any of the four of them. But man the residence and friends in the area were fantastic! And God Bless the old man for his service to the Country and being a true American Hero!

Disappointed but not surprised.

I don’t know these kids or this guy. I suspect there’s more to the story on both. I doubt this is the first time these kids went off the rails and I wonder why this guy was selected.

All that said, I would hope the kids are being put to work adjacent to the adults repainting the walls or something. They need to hear this guy’s story to feel the degree of offense they committed because of what they did to him, in order and recognize and appreciate the degree of tolerance being expressed. Without something like that, it’s only punishment and punishment alone just makes people pissed off.

Or the kids may be a couple of pathological larva and just aren’t wired right.
