    I was shocked and also very sad to read this article and just cannot believe who would do such a terrible nasty and of cause very dangerous act. Why do this to a charity vehicle that helps the most vulnerable members of our society.

    Why also did they feel they need to target this vehicle and the group of people the service is provided for? I sincerely hope this is a isolated incident.

    Unbelievable. I struggle to understand why people do things like this. They must be severely mentally ill.

    The culprits are sociopaths who lack empathy. You cannot appeal to their better nature because they do not have one.
