Aboriginal Petroglyphs Destroyed by Vandals Armed with Acid and a Drill

“To my absolute horror, I could see what kind of damage had been done…I just couldn’t believe it.”

“The vandals used a truck to get to the rock and suspects they used a power washer to remove the lichen covering the symbols before spraying acid on the paintings and drilling away the carvings with a rock bore or hammer drill.

“We have been violated, future generations have been robbed and the world has been deprived of the ancient knowledge contained within these artifacts,” Knowlton wrote in his report. “This urgent matter must follow a formal plan of action at all levels.””

I can’t even think of obscenities strong enough to convey how disgusted and horrified I am. I don’t have the words.

Who the fuck does something like this?  WHO THE FUCK DOES THIS THAT DELIBERATELY?

What the fuck goes wrong in a person’s head and/or heart, such that they are so opposed to the notion of markers of cultural history that they will take the time and effort to specifically go out of their way to destroy it?  Does not compute.  Does not compute at all.

A gifset of a woman cutting up some shoddily constructed mass-market books has over 7000, with graphic and horrible death threats.

Let that sink in, tumblr.
