Even LEGO enthusiasts unfortunately see LEGO as rebuildable things that're easy to put back together. I mean, I've see videos of folks after conventions throwing their creations into bins, causing them to literally explode. I don't like dented or chipped LEGO, so I don't do that, but hey, it's their stuff.
That's too bad about this sculpture. I hope when they catch these kids, they do make them lose their summer vacation with public service or whatnot, because that's just one thing they stole from Mr. McNaught, his time. Time he isn't going to get back. I guess when you're a kid, you've got plenty of time of time to spare, so you don't appreciate it.
