Say, what?


Thursday, September 20, 2007


My mother said the Internet was evil.

So it seems now that Jersey City police say they have rounded up a gang of teenagers and charged them with video-taping a string of attacks on innocent people for the sole purpose of putting it on the Internet.

The five teen suspects, 18 and younger, who appeared to have found pleasure in their attacks, filmed the beatings, including one in which the gang broke a woman's arm and then chased her through a park.

An anonymous tip allowed police to recover the videos.
Prosecutors are seeking to have some of the teens tried as adults.

Mom is always right.

They should also print their cowardly names in the paper for the community to condemn them. Maybe an appropriate punishment would be to break their thumbs,and fingers- film it for YouTube and MySpace for all their friends to see/hear them yelping in pain and also to prevent them from texting or typing or filming anything on a PC/Blackberry or any other phone device with a keyboard or camera without wincing in pain every time they try to communicate with their BFF's.

Round them up,try them as adults, then jail them.
It seems juvenile delinquency is at an all time high.
"Lead paint babies" one correction official I know calls them.

BTW,Where have all the bloggers gone?
