    Re: This sums up today's youth

    foolish to insinuate that this sums up today's youth, I would be considered to be part of "today's youth" and wouldn't even entertain the thought of doing such a thing....Well maybe I would entertain it but wouldn't actually carry it out.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    I believe that a good ass whooping, teaches a valuable lesson. Protecting dip****s leads to more dip****s. I can think of at least a dozen fights I was in as a kid, attacking bullies and punks. Won all but one, and that was cause his punk friends stepped in. Every other person I fought? Ended up as my friend.

    I think the kids were wrong, however swinging the club at the kids when they weren't violent wasn't right either. I have no problem with the man destroying the RC car, but not with swinging a club at non-violent young men. What the young men did was disrespectful. They probably didn't know this, but greens are very expensive to maintain, golfers also pay good money to use a course. I think both parties were wrong on this one. Sure young kids can be punks, but many seniors can be jerks, working in a pharmacy allows me to experience this firsthand.

    It's fun to watch some of the old people on this board talk **** about 'today's youth' when this forum is rife with both liberal and conservative youths who are lawyers, artists, scientists etc. However I guess when you need something to bitch about anything will do.

    He pushed the old man as he ran to the car, he initiated physical violence. He could have justified hitting him back with the club, taking the kid down, breaking his arm, even shooting in the extreme.

    The kids are dorks. Pulling pranks and then getting confrontational about it can get you hurt or killed. Sorry. I would defense any ruling in that way in this case.

    Punks aren't people. They are punks. And punks, gt hammered. After a hammering, most learn and BECOME people. Those that don't, or are denied such a hammering because "oh they have rights" end up in prison.
    Problem is assault with a deadly weapon makes you the punk and the criminal.These kids may be obnoxious idiots, but they didn't break the law.

    Actually they did.

    Tresspassing, assuming they were not club members.
    Public disorderly conduct: initiating a confrontation through asshat behavior.
    Assault: the punk pushed the old man first.

    So yeah, they could be guilty of various crimes.

    The old guy didn't HIT the punk with the club... but he probably could have. He was just scaring him off.
