Angry Historic Revolutionary War Fort damaged by POKEMON GO players!

WTF is wrong with these idiots?

I have no problem with people playing games. And if you want to play POKEMON GO that is fine with me. But damnit please don't destroy historic treasures that are irreplaceable.

Perhaps they don't know our history. Perhaps they don't care. I hope they are just clueless rubes because those that know what they are doing and do it anyway should be thrashed

FAIRHAVEN, Mass. (CBS/AP) — A fort destroyed in the Revolutionary War is again fending off attacks — this time from “Pokemon Go” players.

Caretakers of Fort Phoenix in Massachusetts say players of the popular smartphone game are damaging the historic site.

Gary Lavalette, volunteer caretaker at the fort in Fairhaven, near the Rhode Island state line, says people have been leaving trash, vandalizing historic structures and publicly urinating. He told WLNE-TV that a stone wall was taken apart with a crowbar and parts of the property look like a “minefield” because people are digging up the ground.

“This fort was never designed for this type of activity,” Lavalette told the station.

The Fairhaven Historical Commission says hundreds of “Pokemon Go” players have been flocking to the fort, often at night, because it’s where a rare Pokemon can be found.

Lavalette said that some visitors were searching for “buried treasure” at the site because they didn’t understand its history.

Just edited this because I looked up something. It says that the "Stops" will be removed it they get enough requests http://gamerant.com/pokemon-go-remove-pokestop/

Maybe by the placement of the "stops" they are guilty of breaking the law by causing a public nuisance or something?

Not sure what type of crime they could be charged with for placement of these 'stops' but the idiots who dig up the ground or generally cause damage at historic sites need to be beat about the head and generally bludgeoned.

Here is something interesting: http://associatesmind.com/2016/07/11...mongo-illegal/

And this: http://abaforlawstudents.com/2016/07...o-and-the-law/

I am sure that this will be a fad and hopefully short lived without to many people becoming roadkill.
