I was privy to an incident the other night involving teenage boys.
I will not go in to every detail, but I will say that I had to stop five kids TWICE from pummeling one young man. As they were kicking, punching and shouting at the guy in the fetal position lying on a neighbors lawn.....here are some expletives coming out of their mouths:
Get the idea? Occasionally he could get away from them, punch them a few times in retaliation and then run down the street. They would then run after him, tackle him and then start the whole humiliating and painful process over again.
Needless to say, I have been enraged about the incident since it happened.
Want to know something else?
All the kids say they were just joking around. They were pretending to beat up this guy in front of a new kid they hadn't seen before. Nice story.
Want to know the best part?
After I broke up the bashing, contatcted all parents and relayed the incident, they believed their kids. Now why would I want to lie about something like this?
Oh, and the kicker....................
Are you ready?
These kids are from the most religious families within Way Down In Mayberry. Obviously, it is okay to stone another human being.
As long as you think they are gay.
