    “Unknown” ..Because playgrounds spontaneously combust ALL THE TIME. /s

    It doesn’t take Sherlocks powers of deduction to convulsively state it’s arson.

  2. Sad says:

    This has to be made a priority. The person responsible needs to be caught and given a hefty amount of time in prison with hard work if not it is just a holiday

    Looks like that 130k a year the pastor is getting is working

    Who ever did this should be made to replace everything. I hope they don’t have children. Community service given and a fine. We don’t have to feed them while locked up. Make them clean the streets with a sign that says what they did to embarrass them every day. Praying that they catch them.

    So sad. The young children are heartbroken I’m sure.
    The person or people responsible should be made to make playground equipment by hand for the whole island.

    How sad is this for the families and children who used to enjoy this playground!
