Anti Crimes

Postby Sam Vimes » Thu Nov 17, 2011 7:11 pm

As mentioned in one of terry pratchetts books there are many anti crimes, these are not just somthing like giving someone something they are things like white mailing (threatening to reveal someones secret donations to charity). Today i found my first real example of a white crime. here is a link to the article http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nationa ... bled=false This man who was high on bath salts comited a classic case of breaking and decorating he broke into someones house then put up christmas decorations after seeing this i wondered wether anyone else had seen any examples of white crimes?

Great story! If only that kid had been a few years younger though, he'd have seen Santa in a completely different light!

Welcome Sam.

Love the story.

Someone did that to me once.

I woke up after a big party at my place to find six half grown banana trees planted in my yard. I had just put up a fence and was making a garden up north and the party was my house warming.

They looked good. But had me puzzled for ages. Never founjd out who did it. One of the boys I thought, as I was one of only a handful of girls in a mining town and the boys were always helping out.

Mind you...... I had to prune the top leaves off for two months to just below fence level when I found out some guy a few blocks over was FURIOUS that someone had come into his yard one night and STOLEN six half grown banana trees!!! :oops:

What? I couldn't very well find him and tell him I had FOUND banana trees in MY yard!!!!

Heaps! :D

Though I was growing them more for the foliage. They grow very fast do banana trees and I wanted green fast as I didn't intend being there for a LONG time.... I also planted paw-paw trees that fruited with HUGE paw-paws (I also learnt about how you have to have at least one manly paw-paw tree to get fruit) :wink:

The paw-paw trees were a bit of a mistake though.... they gave amazing coverage at my windows as young plants... then suddenly they grew up past my windows and all I had were a few thin trunks between me in my undies and the main road. :oops:
