PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Vandals have slashed hundreds of feet of booms in Pensacola, rendering them useless in soaking up oil from the massive Gulf spill.

Escambia County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Ted Roy said the suspects likely used a boat to access the booms and then sliced a roughly 600-foot stretch with a razor blade or box cutter.

Probably the same group who was responsible for blowing the damn thing up in the first place.

Wow! "criminal mischief" hardly seems harsh enough to describe what these thugs did. I have heard that hair salons have come up with a method for sopping up the oil with donated hair from their salons (saw it on t.v.) If they catch the idiots who did this, be nice to see them shaved bald head to toe in order to "donate" their nasty locks toward cleaning up the oil spill. Just a thought...

Want to catch them?
Wait until they post the pics/video of them doing it on YouTube or Facebook.
People are idiots.
