EDITOR’S COMMENT: Secrecy will not stop vandalism spree

A number of readers have questioned the PT’s coverage of the recent vandalism attacks in local parks. We have covered a spate of graffiti in Ferry Meadows, the mindless destruction of trees and wooden furniture in a number of locations. We also reported on a covert police operation launched to tackle the problem and track down the perpetrators. Some readers felt that coverage had in some way encouraged the attacks and that revealing a ‘covert’ police operation ruined its chances of success. We always take genuine questions and feedback from readers seriously so I wanted to explain why we disagree with both points.
