ESSEX, Md. (WJZ) — The Essex Volunteer Fire Company said their truck was egged as they transported Santa Claus through the community.

On Facebook, the company said it spent the last nine days driving around Santa because the volunteers enjoy “seeing the children’s faces light up when they see Santa and keeping a long tradition alive.”

According to the post, the egging happened while the truck was visiting Cedar Valley Place Sunday night.

The company said that this incident combined with negative feedback by some citizens has made them reevaluate bringing Santa Claus on the Fire Engine next holiday season.

    Liberals should be so proud. Every city you control is a nasty place. Is there a city you havent ruined?

  2. Doug Weiss says:

    firemen should have thrown eggs back at the a holes

  3. Gary Golicher says:

    Next time there is a fire in that section, the Fire Department should show up and lob a dozen eggs at the fire and then leave.

    Fight back with the fire hose!

      Now that would be a sight to see.

      Next year they can be prepared to deal with the grinch hooligans, and freeze a few dozen eggs and fire them in a potato gun at 750 feet per second by one of Santa’s elves, or at least a fireman dressed as one. 🙂

      All joking aside, I hope they don’t let one or two hooligans stop this custom.

  5. For Essex, we found that the violent crime rate is one of the highest in the nation, across communities of all sizes (both large and small). Violent offenses tracked included rape, murder and non-negligent manslaughter, armed robbery, and aggravated assault, including assault with a deadly weapon.

    They do not deserve to have a nice Christmas….

      It’s for those very reasons you articulated that the small children deserve a respite from their daily grind. It’s about them.

      Your description of the neighborhood confirms my first thought. If that’s’ stereotyping so be it.

    3. Time to end the War on Poverty. The do-gooders have lost. Time to stop funding out-of-wedlock mothers & babies that create these lawless miscreants.
      Time to return to hard-nosed reality about human nature: left to its own devices, evil dominates.

    I guess there was no snow available and eggs are always the next best thing.

    Seems lefties do not care they hurt the fun little children might be having.

  9. Imagine that. Black Ghetto rats throwing White eggs.

    The firemen were interrupting their Kwanza shoplifting.

    We will destroy every last one of you anti-American domestic enemies very soon.
