Three asshat teens do over $200,000 in damage to local church.

It never ceases to amaze me how idiotic some kids can be. Rev. Bernard Fraser of Taylor, Michigan woke up around 3 a.m. Tuesday and spotted three teens through a rectory window who were in the middle of vandalizing St. Cyril of Jerusalem Catholic Church.

3 men charged with felonies in vandalism at Taylor church

The church, at 6442 Pelham Road near I-94, was broken into early Tuesday by vandals who broke three life-sized statues of Jesus and the church’s patron saint, the Blessed Virgin Mary, worth about $10,000 each. They smashed stained-glass windows, toppled the crucifix, sprayed fire extinguishers over the organ and stole musical instruments.

At Taylor Catholic School, windows and desks were damaged, nearly a dozen smaller statues of Mary were broken or used to knock locks off doors, and computers and a camera were stolen. At the gymnasium, equipment was stolen, and food and pop were used in an attempt to destroy the wood floor, said Taylor Police Detective Aaron Shrewsbury.

Matthew Gerick, 17, Adam Byron, 17, and Vincent Lee Watkins, 19, are charged with nine felony counts, including first-degree home invasion, breaking and entering, malicious destruction of property worth more than $20,000 and larceny of property worth about $50,000. The most serious charge carries a sentence of up to 20 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.

As if that wasn’t enough, one of the three teens confessed to having urinated in the baptismal font. This is what I think of when people use the word “anti-religious” to describe someone, but as it turns out that’s not the motivation behind this idiocy:

Shrewsbury said the suspects confessed. “They said they were bored and wanted to have some fun,” he said.

They did all this because they were bored?!? How big of an asshole do you have to be to cause $200,000 worth of damage to someone else’s property, Church or otherwise, just because you’re friggin’ bored?!? What the fuck is wrong with these people that they can’t find a better way to pass the time than to cause misery and loss to others who have done nothing to wrong them?? For that matter, how friggin’ stupid do you have to be to choose a Church across the street from your house?!? Hopefully these morons will spend some time in jail where I’m sure they’ll find plenty to keep them from getting bored.

  1. Hey, Frank the Tank.
    Go die.
    ;D You’re a disgrace to any decent-minded individual anywhere within the 13-17 year old age range.
    Learn proper grammar, learn to spell, and learn to write and speak coherently and maybe you won’t be such a disgusting waste of your parents’ money.

  2. Quoting FRANK THE TANK

    i am christan that know that we should all should forgive and i have. Jesus forgave Pilot for putting him on the cross so les shut the hell up and maybe u should understand ppl and get there sides u stupid peice of shit

    Christians are supposed to be understanding and forgiving, at least that would have been the original intention behind it’s founding.
    At least don’t make it personal, even if for your own benefit because it will come back at you.

  3. Dear Frank the Tank:

    Let’s take a look at the facts, shall we? Your friends admitted they did the crime. Your friends admitted they had no good reason for it. This makes it more than just a simple mistake, it makes it a malicious act.

    Playing baseball near the church and hitting a line drive through a priceless stain glass window? That’s an example of a mistake. Intentionally going in and ransacking the joint because you were bored? That puts you squarely into the asshat category.

    Your friends may be model citizens now and if they are then that’s fantastic, but that doesn’t change what they did in the past. As for forgiving them, that’s up to the Reverend and not I. They’ve done nothing to me personally so I have nothing to forgive them for.

    Finally, perhaps you’d do well to follow your own advice about getting to know others before passing judgment on them. That is if you don’t want to continue looking like a total hypocrite.

  4. I am not a hypocrite. For one a devolped a freind ship with one of them after the fact of the crime and he a change person but they know they did wrong and should not be punished for pulling a stupid kid thing. like i said u should know both sides and u les u only read the papers and what i read and what i heard is 2 different things and i know my freinds would never lie to me so maybe everone should do the GOD thing and fucking forgive

     

     

    and by the way ass clown,why dont you get a fuckin hobby instead of exploiting everyone elses mistakes who the fuck are you to lay judgement upon my head i know i dont lose any sleep knowing what ive done and personally could care less what others think because if you choose to get mixed up in religion more power to ya but why dont you be a religious person and move the fuck on ive done my time and been forgiven so burn in hell motherfucker people like you make me sick instead of knowing the facts you read and watch while the media twists the story up like a frenchbraid so close your cock holster and pay attenion my life is none of your business you clown-nosed cheese dick fucktard i had a nickel for everytime someone like you has said something id be off parole by now….rest in pieces bitch

    for ever in hate,adam byrom

  5. FTT: I am not a hypocrite

    Well…

    maybe everone should do the GOD thing and fucking forgive

    Shortly before:

    burn in hell motherfucker people like you make me sick

    And…

    who the fuck are you to lay judgement upon my head

    Is later backed up by…

    instead of knowing the facts you read and watch while the media twists the story up like a frenchbraid so close your cock holster

    Look even within the same comment you’re showing hipocrasy. Les’s response was restrained and reasoned, your’s was not

    my life is none of your business you clown-nosed cheese dick fucktard

    If you don’t want us to know don’t tell us

    for ever in hate

    Hate, though prevelant in some christianity, was not one of the principles I thought the religion was founded on. If you hate this blog, it begs the question why you come.

  6. What’s particularly interesting is that the comment is signed off with the name Adam Byron who just so happens to be one of the three asshats mentioned in the original news item.

    Sounds like “Frank the Tank” was someone trying to pass himself off as one of his own supporters. It just puts everything else in his comment into a whole new perspective. It’d be amusing if it weren’t so sad.

  7. Les: What’s particularly interesting is that the comment is signed off with the name Adam Byron who just so happens to be one of the three asshats mentioned in the original news item.

    I didn’t realise that (sock puppet didn’t occur to me), explains why he comes and why he said to keep out of his life. Actually now I think about it it’s unlikely someone would stick up for something like that without being implicated themselves. Either they have internet in prison or he’s not there (yet).

    FTT – Of course if you vandalise a public place it’s going to be talked about publicly, and for all the talk of forgiveness you only forgave yourself and the people who did it with you.

    FTT: and move the fuck on

    On your part it would be a start to openly accept you did wrong and hurt someone, try to earn the forgiveness of the victim by doing good, and accept that you are going to get criticism for such an act as part of the deal when hurting someone who didn’t deserve it.

    You can’t just expect us to just dismiss your deeds, you have to show us you’ve really changed, which we don’t yet see. Prove me wrong.

  8. For one It was mine comment was the topp one that why we spaced them out I was the one that left the top most one and my name is Frank. Now the second one that was adam BYROM not byron u stupid bible humming bastard. i showed him this stupid site that brings down 3 of my best friends names they did there crime and i know the hate what they did. And for one myabe you should read the paper more often because u got the whole story messed up u ass hat now i dare u to say something to me about my spelling u little shits. Put your self in my shoes lets say u are on the net looking around and u fall apon a site that pulls your friends name into the dirt how would u feel. I would take a bullet in the fucking face for all of them cause i know they have my back if i needed it and adam is like family to me my grandmother goes to St cyrils church she hated that it happen but u know what she loves that kid because he knows what he did was wrong. Now put your self in to the 3 young boys shoes we all know that u will say i would never do that but you also know that u have done something bad in your life that u wish u could erase we all have. I belive in god ass holes I belive that what they did was wrong against god but i also know that he ALWAYS forgives no matter what even in murder it just may take long he made us speical above any other why shouldnt he forgive them they did there time.
    That was Mr AssHat king Les
    Now to the others who comment
    maybe you should not read what this read what this ass hat left 4 all u to see maybe should u should get off your asses and read a fucking paper i am sorry i cant spell or i dont use proper grammer i went to taylor schools they sucked. Just talk to them and maybe u can learn something how they have grown up supporting FAMILIES and HOLDING down 3 jobs and trying to move pass this

    Thank you for your time u fucking ass clowns
    Frank

  9. Frank the Tank (are you any kin to Thomas the Tank) you make it difficult to believe that anyone you’re associated with isn’t an asshole.

    Tell us the story as you know it if you want us to reconsider the facts and try to curb your juvenile put-downs. We’re reasonable people and most of us would love to believe in the innate goodness of others, even your friends. So give us facts, not childish banter.

  10. Oh, and you’re friends with an Adam Byron AND an Adam Byrom? Please tell us why THAT shouldn’t sound suspicious.

  11. The order of quotes was changed for structure:

    FTT: now i dare u to say something to me about my spelling u little shits

    OK then, now I admit my spelling isn’t always great but I’ve realised since I’ve been here that it is easier to read comments with relatively few mistakes. The quickest way to fix this is to write your comment in word, use it’s spell and grammar check, then copy and paste it into the comment box, won’t take long at all, I promise.

    Now the second one that was adam BYROM not byron u stupid bible humming bastard

    Now you’ve admitted yourself your spelling has it’s errors, so it’s not unreasonable for us to think Bryon and Bryom are the same person. Since the second comment used the same avatar (albeit different capitals) and was signed with the name Bryom, we are inclined to think you were one of the vandals.

    I would take a bullet in the fucking face for all of them

    If you could. But that wouldn’t be very forgiving, even if you forgave yourself our families wouldn’t forgive you, and the same situation applies to the ransacking of the church, it is the victim that you must earn the forgiveness of, not yourself, your friends, not even god, but the reverand.

    you also know that u have done something bad in your life that u wish u could erase we all have

    True, and we use it as a learning experience to avoid hurting someone in future, but what I’ve done was more out of blindness to the consequences of my actions. You know that ransacking the property of someone who had done nothing to you will hurt them, and that they may well take it personally, and if you know better there is no excuse.

    maybe you should not read what this read what this ass hat left 4 all u to see

    If I’m going to comment I read all recent comments, including yours, to make as balanced and complete a response as I can.

    maybe should u should get off your asses and read a fucking paper

    This thread is all the time I’m willing to commit to this subject, I have other things to do, just as your friends now have. If there is more to the story, as Brock said, by all means say it here otherwise all we have to go on is what’s already here.

    Now put your self in to the 3 young boys shoes

    Put yourself in the Reverend’s shoes when he came to find his church had been ransacked, and didn’t know if it was specific hate for him, the religion, if he and his family were safe, or how he would repair and clean the building. Think of the time and money it must have cost someone who did nothing to deserve it.

    i also know that he ALWAYS forgives no matter what even in murder it just may take long

    As I’ve said before, forgiveness, even that of a possible god, isn’t free, it must be earned to mean anything, otherwise there’s no sign the perpetrator has changed in himself. The best place to start is by doing good for the victim, if he’s not so terrified as to sit down with you.

  12. Thanks “Frank the Tank”, that was some damned funny reading. You’re very amusing.

    now i dare u to say something to me about my spelling u little shits

    OK, your spelling sucks. Much like your friends do.
