These two nit-wits apparently determined that smoking cigarrettes and attempted theft were more fun than school.
When that didn't work they tried kicking the camera off of the tree! What a great way to steal a delicate piece of electronic equipment!
Oh, and for the parents of these kids...I'm sure even if you happen to see my blog AND somehow recognize one of these is your kid by their clothes, you wont do anything of substance about it. I didn't get a picture of their faces, becuase if I had, I'd have sent the pictures to the police (this was not only attempted theft, but also tressspassing). But, at the very least, maybe you could discipline them for being stupid. Ground them. Take away their iPhones...or their X-box 360s.....or their computer for a week...or something.
BTW..am I bitter? YES. I worked hard to get these cameras and set up a monitoring project with them, just to have a couple of morons try to steal them.
I never thought I'd say this but "what's wrong with kids these days?"
