Vandals Suck

posted Sep 4, 2011, 11:52 AM by R. L. Noble   [ updated Sep 4, 2011, 12:05 PM ]
let's get right down to it...

vandalism is a crime regardless of the tools used. the Flashpoint Paintball community holds a no tolerance policy on any action involving paintball equipment and criminal activity. 

recently, a City of Pendleton road grader was vandalized using a paintball marker and had anywhere from 30-40 impacts on the windows and body of the grader, with the impact focus on the windows.

community founder and Captain of the Flashpoint Lancers, R. Leon Noble, VOLUNTEERED to assist in the investigation and clean up to help out the City in their efforts. it has been determined that no Flashpoint community member was involved.

as the story went across town, someone in the city organization had decided that volunteering to assist in the clean up was an admission of guilt. 

LET ME BE CLEAR: FLASHPOINT PAINTBALL, IT'S OFFICERS, AND IT'S MEMBERS ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS CRIMINAL ACT, NOR IS THE ACT CONDONED OR ACCEPTED BY THE COMMUNITY. ANYONE WHO IS CAUGHT DOING THESE ACTS ARE TO BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULLEST EXTENT OF THE LAW!

information release - Official Statement (03/15/2010)
*************************

The Flashpoint Paintball community has begun addressing paintball related vandalism and assault actions in the local area. 

Flashpoint Paintball works hard to provide a safe location for paintball activities and encourages all who are interested to attend the events produced with safety and consideration for the community.

Firing paintballs at people or vehicles is violent, putting people in danger of harm and constitutes a qualified 911 emergency.  

Actions of violence and vandalism are not part of the sport of paintball and are considered criminal activity by Law Enforcement, Flashpoint Paintball, and the general community. If it is not on a paintball field with the proper safety equipment, the action is a criminal offense.

If you have information regarding these criminal activities, please contact law enforcement or Flashpoint Paintball with pertinent information (specifically - descriptions, names, times, and locations). Flashpoint contact information can be located online at http://www.flashpointpaintball.com.
