For many Americans, their children are their pride and joy and they will do everything they can to protect them.
Parents from Huntsville, Texas, were shocked when they were notified by the city that they they had discovered razor blades embedded into playground equipment throughout the city.
City officials said that the culprit likely used a “heating device” to soften the plastic, momentarily, so that they could embed the razor blades into the plastic to form a makeshift weld.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The horrifying and dangerous addition to the slides were discovered during a routine inspection of the playground equipment by workers of the city’s Parks and Leisure Department. Obviously, they quickly repaired the slides to make them safe for kids to use again.
While the city put out a call for citizens to keep an eye out for anything suspicious and contact the police if they had any information, they also noted that they would be installing surveillance cameras at the parks to catch any future saboteurs.
Though the city had initially reported that multiple razor blades had been found on the slides, KBTX reported that Huntsville authorities have now clarified that only one blade was found embedded in a slide, though efforts were made to embed others and damaged was caused to the slides at both parks.
Thankfully, no injuries were reported and city officials were able to repair all of the playground equipment that was tampered with.
Still, one has to question what kind of sick person would do something like this.
