Seems like the disaffected youth of Europe all wanna get in on the French car-destroying action. During a blackout in Poole, England which affected 75,000 power customers, hoodlums, hooligans and other assorted miscreants teamed up to vandalize 57 cars and seven vans in the area. Sleepy Dorset isn't used to such acts of wonton nihilism directed at automobiles, and authorities promise to investigate: " "The scale of this crime is very unusual for Poole and were are taking it very seriously," says Inspector Derrick Lillywhite. "We are determined to find the person or people responsible for this mindless spate of vandalism." Isn't the answer obvious? Sue the pants off the state of France!
