I often wondered what the kids these days did for fun on the weekend and after school. Now I know..
Some of them get together with their friends and as their parents have warned them of stranger danger, they think they are ok..
But… Do these parents know exactly what their kids are doing?
I don’t think so.. The last few months I have been privy to a situation involving a young family, their young school age son and a group of kids who for no other reason than to cause trouble,, have made the family’s life a nightmare…Not to mention the young son..
A couple of days ago… word got out about this group of boys who were on the warpath and decided to egg the nice family’s house and beat up on their young boy. This decision was made on the sole basis that their bullying of the young boy at school was not enough to satisfy them… Is that incredibly stupid or what? As soon as the nice family found out, they called the Police and just as the group/gang showed up at their house, so did a camera crew from a well known TV station and although they were there for something else, the reporter took it upon himself to ask the kids what they were doing..It was intimidating enough for them to run away, like the blatant little cowards they are.. Then, the Police force turned up wearing flack jackets and all their accoutrements needed for a gun battle..They found out where the gang leader was and went straight to their house to speak to the parents..
Thank goodness for that.. Thank you SAPOL.. South Australian Police Force. I hope those kids got the verbal tirade from their parents they deserved.. In this day and age, I have to wonder why in the hell are kids still doing this when anti bullying campaigns are flogged into their impressionable minds at school.. They obviously don’t get it…
I would love to see these bullies get community service time to go out and scrub graffiti from walls and to spend time with the Police talking about the effects of their cowardly behaviours. The parents should also be involved in it too.. They shouldn’t get away with it just because their idiot kids got caught..
I think there is a moral to this story..
If kids are going out in groups, they should be given strict instructions for their behaviours, their whereabouts and time limitations.. They should NOT be allowed to roam the streets because it leads to trouble and once they are in it up to their eyeballs it’s awfully hard to get out of it… Trouble ruins lives and not just the victims lives but the trouble makers too.
So to all the bullied kids out there.. Don’t be scared to speak out.. Get them where it hurts.. Tell the Police, tell your parents, tell someone..
