Vicious teenagers of Oakland making our lives a living hell
Whilst waiting for the bus last night, we were treated to the sight of a vicious beating perpetrated by 5 somewhat less than charming teen girls upon a teen boy.
They came to the bus stop like a troop of baboons, hooting and presenting their rumps, commenced to harassing, cursing at, hitting and finally, just as the bus pulled up, engaging in a full on, brutal attack, beating the poor boy senseless, as I screamed at them to stop. This continued until he could was no longer able stand up on his own and lay like a limp rag upon the curb of our bus stop. Finally, two men, a young gay Black guy and a white guy dressed like a rapper, stepped in to to push the girls off and tried to lift the dazed boy to his feet.
Bus passengers were horrified. African-Americans expressed embarrassment at the fact that the girls were of their race and lamented at the lack of parental control. I did not like to tell them that the parents of these kids are probably worse than the teens. I am surprised that they don't know it.
"I am glad they are not my generation," one lady said.
"I regret to say they are of mine," another teen said.
The buses now have to run in packs as the drivers are so besieged and beset by the teens leaving locals schools that they are afraid to drive alone.
One driver regularly tells the teens, as they exit the bus, to "get off, go away, get off my bus, good riddance."
When we warned him that a badly beaten teen was collapsed between his bus and the curb, he said, "I don't give a damn, as long as he's not on my bus."
