Letter: Smashes for laughs

Click to follow
Sir: I sympathise with the father of the six-year-old who vandalised a nearby home (report, 7 April) when he states that destructive images shown on television are not helpful. Cars smash through plate glass windows 'just for a laugh', while a Building Society advert has an adult totally destroying a wedding breakfast.

If grown-ups earn money by being filmed breaking china and glass and destroying attractive interiors, why shouldn't children?

Yours faithfully,


London, N1
