Sentients, an incoming broadcast from Spinax from the Greater Tion News Group. A security operation apprehended four homeless individuals on Barancar, after they stole a Sandcrawlers worth of water from a local market and removed its contents into the sparse deserts of the planet. When questioned following their arrest, the sentients predominately muttered unintelligible words, before a Bith gave some form of understandable speech. "We did this to show the people that we can have control. We can turn your deserts to marsh, and make you die of thirst whenever we like. We have the power." Soon overpowered by laughter from the local populous, the deranged and evidently mentally questionable individuals were taken to a nearby police station.
Hegemony Magistrate Abraari To's aide spoke with us and advised that despite their mental incapacity, the severity of their crime would not be overlooked. "While we sympathise with their right to have a voice in society, we do not condone theft, and their apparent desire to spawn environmental terrorism and incite rebellion. We will see them transferred for medical evaluation before their case is reviewed in the Hegemony judicial system."
While their efforts did little more than wet sand for approximately ten minutes, those unfortunate souls that face hard on a daily basis need to be considered as part of society. Don't forget to show them respect, just like all other members of this galaxy. This is Arthur, your Greater Tion News Group droid, ending broadcast.
