Disgusting: Lily pond at San Diego park vandalized after squirt gun flash mob

This past Sunday at midnight, between 1500 and 2000 vandals descended upon San Diego’s Balboa Park and engaged in a massive squirt gun fight. The participants are responsible for an estimated $10,000 in damage, including damage to plants and aquatic life in the treasured lily pond. Only about two inches of water remain in the pond.

“They broke a critical piece of piping that will keep the water flow in the lily pond,” said City of San Diego Park and Recreation Director Stacey Lomedico. “It is very likely that we may lose all the lilies in the pond today as well as the fish.”

The suspects left behind water guns and remnants of water balloons, park officials said. Those responsible face serious charges.

“This is gonna be carried as felony vandalism case because of the high dollar value associated with plants, the hardscape, the historic fountain on the other side of the park,” said Lt. Charles Lara with the San Diego Police Department.

San Diego residents and Balboa Park admirers were livid:

Oh, you had a fun watergun fight? I’m sure the dead koi at the Lily Pond are happy for you. http://t.co/KfcacdL7

I am ABSOLUTELY INCENSED at the stupidity and immaturity of the people who tore up the Lily Pond at Balboa Park. My blood is boiling.

The blogger at Doo Doo Economics has identified progressive activist Ken St. Pierre as the event’s organizer. Visit the blog for more information as well as startling before-and-after photos of the lily pond.

The water fight at Balboa Park is yet another illustration of progressives’ reckless disregard for public property.

If you destroyed the Koi/Lily Pond in Balboa Park last night or know who did but won’t come forward, you are despicable. #shameonyou

Indeed. We sincerely hope that all involved in this despicable act are found and punished.
