I'd be pretty pissed if something I built was destroyed by low-life some ass clown. I think bringing in $5,000 from tourists just to see a sandcastle is a good amount of money, and it was ruined for what, because some dick decided to be immature?

Saying "Well the sculpture would've been brought down by nature anyway" is like saying, "Well I blew up that statue because nature would've eroded it anyway"

Apparently, you've never been to Hampton Beach. Shiathole.
 
2005-07-07 10:41:38 AM
You're goin' down, mister.
We have video, you know who you are, you're next.
 
2005-07-07 10:44:38 AM
He's right, you know. Seek asylum now.
 
2005-07-07 10:53:20 AM
Sounds like somebody had sand in thier vagina.
I'm always up for a good hanging.

Wanted for questioning!
 
2005-07-07 11:32:38 AM

Police were able to catch the culprit, who evaded a Chamber of Commerce volunteer and fled down Ocean Boulevard on foot.


Daaaaayum! That's impressive. he managed to get past a Chamber of Commerce volunteer? I mean, anybody can evade a Navy Seal, but a CHAMBER OF COMMERCE VOLUNTEER? Oh, this guy was ready, all right. A terrorist mastermind, him.

Bostony: Apparently, you've never been to Hampton Beach. Shiathole.

you're right, of course (Seabrook is that much more of one) but they are trying to make H.B. a little nicer, and events like this help bring more families, yada yada yada....

either way, if I spent a whole bunch of hours building something like that I'd want to take a swing at the guy too
 
2005-07-07 12:27:22 PM
Will he be using the "Castles Made of Sand fall into the sea eventually" defence?
 
2005-07-07 12:28:25 PM
The same guy kicked sand in my face then I bulked up using some exercise program I found in a comic. BRING IT ON, BUTCH-FRUIT!
 
2005-07-07 12:28:26 PM
Holy spell check Batman! Someone fire that writer.
 
2005-07-07 12:28:51 PM
Please tell me there were no other crimes being committed that day. A huge waste of resources and you know the police are gonna get sued. Pepper spraying someone because they knocked over some sand? C'mon.

"HAMPTON - Two sand castles that were apart of the fifth annual Sand Sculpture Contest at Hampton Beach, came down a couple of days early after a man jumped over the sidewalk railing and smashed them with his hand.

Police were able to catch the culprit, who evaded a Chamber of Commerce volunteer and fled down Ocean Boulevard on foot.

Juan Zayas, 26, of Hartford, Conn., was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and resisting arrest.

According to police, Zayas allegedly knocked down two sand sculptures, titled "Red Tape" and "Masons Misfits," around 5 p.m. Wednesday.

A volunteer, who was watching over the sculptures, confronted Zayas, who allegedly tried to take a swing at him, police said.

Police were called to the scene where they spotted Zayas running on foot in the parking lot of the Playland Arcade.

Even though he was cornered between a police cruiser and a security fence, Zayas allegedly didnt go quietly, police said.

Police said they were forced to use pepper spray to get Zayas under control to arrest him.

According to court documents, Zayas was later released on bail and is scheduled to be arraigned at Hampton District Court on July 25.

Police said they believe alcohol and or drugs may have been a factor.

The department is considering increasing the charges after police determine the value of the sculptures, officials said.

While the sculptures are only up for a week, they bring a lot of tourists to Hampton Beach.

Beach Precinct Commissioner John Kane estimates the sculpture are worth about $5,000 each.

This is the first time in the history of the sand sculpture contest that someone has vandalized what one volunteer called the "masterpieces in sand."

The area around the sand sculptures, which are up for about a week after the contest, is patrolled 24 hours a day by security.

On Friday, all the sculptures were taken down as scheduled."

HAMPTON - Two sand castles that were apart of the fifth annual Sand Sculpture Contest at Hampton Beach, came down a couple of days early after a man jumped over the sidewalk railing and smashed them with his hand.

How exactly is a sand castle worth $5k? Is that the average selling price?
 
2005-07-07 12:59:05 PM
Oh I'm sorry..but..USELESS WITHOUT PIC!!

FOR GOOD OR FOR AWESOME...does not count!!

No Hendrix reference yet?
 
2005-07-07 12:59:57 PM
So were the two sandcastles part of the contest or were they apart from the contest? The writer and his dipwad editor seem unsure.
 
2005-07-07 01:05:32 PM
This article really makes me wonder. Can they REALLY prosecute for the destruction alone? Of course the resisting and stuff, yeah, but here we have a person on a presumably public beach, taking sand that does not belong to them, and forming it into a fragile object.

Now what would happen if someone had accidentally thrown a beach ball and knocked it down? Still the same damage, right? Was the ball lobber negligent? Should he have been more careful? Is it really RIGHT for the sculptor to force a whole crowd of beachgoers to alter their usual activities so as to protect the sand castle?

And while this guy's actions were deliberate, I just don't see any 'ownership' of the castle in the first place...
 
2005-07-07 01:05:44 PM
"running on foot" eh? Well good thing he didn't try to escape by running on his hands. sheesh.
 
2005-07-07 01:07:01 PM

2005-07-07 01:20:24 PM
LordVger, since it's sponsored by the government and used to generate revenue/attract people, the creations probably fall under the same kind of protection as government property (statues, playgrounds, etc.) does in a park or other public area.
 
2005-07-07 01:20:42 PM
What is wrong with you people? It's just a damn sand castle. If I though no one was around I'd kick the **** out of one too. I mean, come on that's half the fun! Anyone who is seriously ticked off by this needs to rethink what's important in life and maybe seek some therapy...
 
2005-07-07 01:21:21 PM
judge will laugh and throw it out.
it's only sand.
not emminant domain.
rain will also trash the sand. please charge your god with deliberate destruction.

These sandcastles were cordoned off. He had to jump the barriers erected to smash them. They were set up as art exhibits on the beach.

Sand castles are for hippies with no time on their hands! Has anyone ever seen a sand castle in the Middle East?? Beside the sand castle tributes to 9-11, the middle-east is 100% hippy-free!

/didn't make up 9-11 sand castle, it exists.
