Window Breaking. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 17 October 1914
-Window Breaking. About midnight oa Saturday, two firemen from troopships berthed at our piers, whilst in a drunken condi tion, smashed the large sheet of plate .glass in thewindow of premises oc eupied by IMessrs. Cross and Pat terson, Bay-street. The men were ar rested and charged with being drunk and disorderly. In consideration of having been in confinement until Monday, they were discharged. ~ The law in regard to the-breaking of windows appears to be that provid ing the damage was not wilfully done there can be no redress. The view was taken-that these men, on account of their drunken state, fell through the window, accidentally, therefore no mention was made in court of the incident. This will come as a sur prise to most people who have re garded themselves as liable when breaking a .window, accidentally or otherwise.
