    Yes, people, especially young people, are idiots are times. Some more than others.

    I'd be pissed if that were my car because despite having comprehensive insurance, I still have a $250.00 dollar deductible. And good luck trying to get it from the kinds of kids in this video (poor, not black).

    These guys deserve to be arrested. icon_mad.gif I'd be mad too if they do that to my car.

    I saw this video below another day and don't understand how people find it funny. I find it more disturbing that this guy gets away with doing these annoying pranks to people. icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    The tamer pranks are real, the ones involving violence and potential injury are STAGED.

    Waaaayyyyyy back in 2004 during college I helped as a "stand in" for a video project, somewhat similar to what this guy is doing. I did it for free, since she was a friend, and all I had to do was looked 'shocked' as if I didn't know it was staged.

    You'd be surprised what people will agree to for their 15 'seconds' of fame, or $20 dollars.

    I just think it's interesting that the OP's ONE AND ONLY post is that of a video of black kids vandalizing people's cars....

    I would agree that the OP posted this vid in an attempt to make black people appear dumb/stupid/"thugs"

    That is good to know. I am more upset than amused with the guy.

    southbeach1500 saidWaiting for Art_Deco to come and call the OP a racist for using the word "thugs" - one of the "no-no" words that the looney left doesn't want us to use to describe... thugs!


    I think 'thugs' is permissible here because of the amount of financial damage they were doing.

    But these ARE kids. If they'd only been stealing a candy bar, or throwing water balloons at (relatively slow) moving cars, then 'thugs' would be entirely inappropriate.

    Thug is defined as a "violent person, especially a criminal." This rises to violence, but JUST BARELY. These are more properly hooligans, vandals, and ragamuffins.

    Actually the word "thug" has its origins with one of the most violent murdering groups ever to terrorize India. Under British colonial rule when the thuggi were at their worst the British initiated a successful campaign to eradicate them. At the time the population of India was much relieved to be rid of the threats to their lives from the Thuggi. However, as to be expected, a revisionist version of history now teaches the British eradication of the Thuggi was some sort of crime against humanity.

    I didn't know the origin, thanks Bob3. Though I'm going to have to disclaim that revisionist history sentence. I simply haven't looked into the issue and don't want to weigh in one way or another without facts.

    That's understandable. The funny part is having spoken to Indian immigrants to the US who are my age who talk about the Thuggi eradication as one of the great things that happened under British rule.. then to pick up a magazine on history to read an article written by a merchant of white guilt putting a whole other spin on it.

    It's not something I'm attached to either way. It's natural to side with the perspective of the people more closely influenced by the Thuggi eradication than opinions of people who weren't influenced at all by it.

    From what I remember, there were some large mass executions by hanging of the Thuggi that are still in the Guinness book.

    This is near where I live, Country Club Plaza in Kansas City Missouri.

    It is sad to see that people are doing this. There is a reason why they have curfew laws now in that area.

    Wow, really? I'm genuinely curious, do you think their behavior is, in some part, fueled by the "Ferguson" drama (for lack of a better term)? I'd imagine to some degree it is, but I'm wondering if there's a palpable difference in pre-Ferguson versus post-Ferguson with respect to roving bands of hooligans. I'm sure the kids always roved--that's what ALL kids do--but I wonder if kids, especially minority kids, in that area feel somehow emboldened? Kind of a, "you can't touch me, remember Ferguson" mentality? I hope not, but I want to know.

    There is a large discussion on the Kansas city subreddit http://www.reddit.com/r/kansascity/comments/31kl8y/everyone_better_be_careful_where_they_park_on_the/ about it. It has happened before the ferguson stuff. It is mainly black families dropping their kids off for the weekend. Sounds racist but that is what is happening.

    They have been enforcing curfews and stuff. They need to make it no one under 18 after 5PM unless with their parent/guardian.

    @ThatSwimmerGuy

    Gotcha. I'm sorry to hear that. It's a sad situation no matter how you dice it--whether the blame (if we even need to delve it out)--belongs to the kid, school or parent.

    From my knee-jerk impression, I'd say this is 40% parents fault, 40% kids, and 20% school system (community writ large).

    Parents needs to monitor their children, or drop them off with persons who actively monitor them. Nobody's perfect, but you can't be a roving pack on the streets at that age.

    Kids need to take responsibility. Yes it sucks to have the deck stacked against you (which I'm assuming these kids have because of their behavior), but that's no excuse for this behavior. The knew what they were doing was wrong, I heard their commentary. Many children, of all races, black included, grow up in impoverished and unparented homes and turn out much better than this. At a certain point, a person must accept responsibility for himself/herself.

    The community takes some responsibility in my opinion, especially the schools. This paragraph is an entire post unto itself, but it should suffice to say that I'm close friends with no less than 4 teachers (all Philly inner-city schools), and friends with other teachers around the nation, and there are clear signs and warnings when a kid is going off course.
