While I agree with your sentiment that there is a great failing i the quality of our children. I do not think we should even go the route of kicking children fro school for after hours behavior that has not even been banned in the first place. It just reeks of self righteousness.

Don't be stupid!

Never be out late at night with very valuable stuff and be shocked if you get mugged!

Children need to be supervised and if I was the principal of the school these children would be suspended for going to starbucks alone at such a late hour. Wearing jeans. What kind of chassidiishkeit is this? I don’t care how much money the parents donate? Are these the lessons that are being instilled?

Actually there were two separate incidents

Not sure which incident that you are referring to but the one with the three boys happened in front of 744 Eastern Parkway and the boys weren’t even riding them
they were sitting on a bench waiting for two friends to join them and go all together
two kids fought back and one didn’t as he was told his life is irreplaceable and worth a lot more than any toy which can be replaced

agree #1

” True to be mugged is terrible thing but to be out so late without adult supervision is also questionable.”
Also, to be out so late with the supervision of a weak and care-nothing government is also questionable..

come on

Walk Instead
November 9, 2015 12:00 pm

These crimes are terrible, and there is no excuse for them. People should be able to ride these scooters without fear of being robbed. As a separate issue, people are generally getting fatter and sicker, and young people don’t need to train themselves to exercise less. These scooters are an excuse to stand completely still while traveling from one point to another. Walk, roller skate, bike, skateboard… Bodies that move are healthier and last longer. Should we have moving sidewalks so that everyone can move less and get even fatter? Please read my first thought again. There is no excuse… Read more »

Swift punishment
November 9, 2015 11:38 am

The only deterrent to these low life scumbags is swift, hard punishment.

The message needs to be heard loud and clear to these certain “minority youth” that crime does not pay. They will not hear this message from their non-existent father’s and self-entitled drugged up mother’s, so the city correctional system will have to do the job.

Hmmmm

I don’t think you guys know what hoverboard means…

I heard the story a little differently
November 9, 2015 9:40 am

The mugging took place near Rogers on Eastern Parkway. At around ten thirty in the evening. The children who are thirteen years of age were on there way to starbucks. True to be mugged is terrible thing but to be out so late without adult supervision is also questionable.
