Dear Editor,

There is no excuse for the act of draining the water systems in Blanco and Johnson City. Stupid or terrorist? I thought “terrorists” were out to destroy lives and property. It makes sense to have a law about tampering with city water supplies. God forbid someday we may need it to punish someone who tries to poison us or destroy the water systems. But ask yourselves this question: If you are one of those calling these young men “terrorists” ...are you just stupid or are you a terrorist? Remember, a terrorist is one who attempts to destroy lives. Is that your goal?

Think also about the families of the young men and the terror they feel now and how their lives are being affected. Imagine if it were your family member!

Make no mistake, the young men should be punished, but do you really want to permanently destroy their lives, and hurt their families that much? Have you thought about the consequences of your actions and accusations?

I know the world has changed. But I also know that common sense has not changed. Just because these young men failed to use their common sense, let’s not forget to use ours.
