Vandalism at Muller Insurance

More flower vandals in Hoboken. Why, exactly?

Hoboken Flower Vandals - Vandalism at Muller InsuranceOh boy, here we go again. More senseless flower vandalism in Hoboken. As this update to the story will show you, it was a new set of “cool” dudes busting other people’s beautiful property up, and it involved more than just Muller Insurance.

This security cam footage from Muller shows two guys (one carrying a plant removed from somewhere else), and another guy just “tipping over” a plant for no reason. The other victims of vandalism and theft recently also included Midtown Realty, Amanda’s and Ali Baba’s.

Don’t you think it’s a bit outrageous that people who choose to live in Hoboken wreck what the backbone of the business community that tries to keep it looking good? This may not be the worst crime in the world – but it’s senseless, and shows how society is going down the tubes. No respect, I tell ya!

Senseless vandalism at Muller Insurance in Hoboken

5/29/2013 Update:

Vandalism at Muller Insurance in Hoboken NJ - Vandalism at Muller InsuranceIn today’s “big brother” world – you can make a fair bet that whether it’s government surveillance (red light camerasPublic Spaces) or private security cameras at businesses and residences – someone is watching you.

But that doesn’t stop thugs from committing crimes, or angry pedestrians from ruining something nice that betters the community.

Take this vandalism at Muller Insurance uptown earlier this month.

They said: “We had some vandalism at Muller Insurance in the early morning of May 14th and caught the guy on camera. At 4 am, this pedestrian came over to our newly planted flower bed and ripped out two plants then threw them in the street! We don’t recognize him but wanted to forward it on to you to see if any readers do. Can’t believe someone would do this!”

Do you recognize this tool?

Why would someone be so upset at a harmless flower bed anyway?

It’s not like he “stole” them to plant in his own garden. He just uprooted the plants and tossed them in the street, essentially destroying them.

Sure, while it’s not a costly vandalism incident, it’s just not right.

See a couple videos below for analysis.

Isn’t that the flower bed with three separate “NO DOG PEEING” signs prominently displayed? That might have something to do with the rationale.

Some people just suck. It’s in their nature.

File under Low Impulse Control. The cops probably know him. If they don’t they will.

Early on the morning of May 27 I was passing the Madison and they had a number of their plants torn out of their flower boxes and tossed into the street. I wonder how many other places have been hit?
