    Re: This sums up today's youth

    There was a lot of stupidity involved on the part of the young guys and the old men both.

    It was a dumb (and rude) prank to pull in the first place.

    The old guys escalated things buy smashing the car (though I see it as justified).

    The young guys were stupid to get all pissy about their toy getting broken.

    The one old guy definitely crossed a line when he took a swing at them with the golf club.

    All in all, there wasn't a lot of intelligence displayed by either group in that video. It was a group of young guys being assholes, and a group of old guys responding by being assholes too.

    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    i think the faulty assumption that everyone is making is that the old guy woulda hurt the kid. he didn't even swing the golf club hard and didn't aim for the head. the worst the kid woulda got was a well deserved bruise that's gone in a couple days. not to mention we don't tend to through grumpy old guys in jail, just look at the record. swing away old man, you've earned the right.
    Democracy is two wolves and sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is a well armed sheep willing to contest the vote.

    just because there isn't a fence doesn't mean it isn't a private course. there are several private courses in my local area and none of them are "fenced up" and a couple of them are right off main roads.

    most of the same people defending these punks are the same ones who were crying because that 69 y/o black dude didn't get thrown in jail for fatally shooting a young thugged out POS who ran into his yard and assaulted him.

    lesson for all you young, wannabe, badass punks out there, **** around with an old man and you might just get the **** beat out of you...or worse. just because he looks old and helpless, doesn't mean he is.

    Old people are going to expire soon anyway. Young people have their whole lives ahead of them.

    How does this matter? Does age validate opinion? I suspect you believe Your Star is bias towards the young men because of her age. Likewise, it would be wrong for us to believe you are bias towards the older men because of your age (no offense, and I'm not calling you old or a senior citizen). Age doesn't matter. The point is that the senior men were swinging a club at the young kids when they were not being violent. a Club injury like that could be fatal. Sure what the young men did was wrong and immature, but it didn't warrant lethal violence against them.
