this is a sad situation when people cant leave other peoples property alone but at least it was just a smashing of the mailbox and not people stealing things out of mailboxes like we had in Alton back in 2003-1004 crazy how they just let people like all of these criminals walk the streets again!! is it safe to do anything these days?
