I'm an emotionall tough guy. It takes a lot to bother me, but true confession: I couldn't watch all of this. I was so appalled, disgusted and left indignant by the behavior of these kids that I couldn't watch it to the end.
I would say that it's almost hard to believe it's real, but that's the state of our kids today in America. They're shit heads, and it's largely because their parents are shit heads. My son knows that if he ever behaved in such a disgraceful manner that he'd catch a swift beating. My kid might be a smart ass at times (which is a direct reflection on my own smart assery), but he's not a monster, not like these little bastards.
"Well they're just kids, Jack! They don't know any better." Just because they're kids doesn't mean they are free to act with impunity. I think it's a sad state of parenting in America when we see things like this happening.
I can't even pretend to know what these kdis' homelives are like. Perhaps they're never spanked or given real punishment for their actions. That's the only thing I can think of. Perhaps it's something deeper: maybe kids these days just aren't being taught the core values of what it means to be a decent human being.
So what should be their punishment? Outting them. "Jack, you can't do that, they're just kids!" Well, unless you'd like them to continue being raging shit heads, then the best thing to do would be to subject them to the same humiliation that they brought upon this woman. The thing is that they're kids, and developmentally they are nearly incapable of empathy. So, since they can't empathize with another human being, they have to experience the humiliation for themselves.
I think outting them, i.e. listing the shit heads by name, would work because we all know how kids are with peer pressure. Now imagine all of American society is calling them out by name and telling them how shitty they are. Public humiliation is always a great way to get the attention of dumbass kids like them.
Parents: keep your kids under wraps so they don't grow up to be sociopaths.
