The ‘Catch and Wreck’ Game

When I was 11 years old way back in the day, I still wanted to play with dolls (but was too embarrassed to ask for one for Christmas), and the most dangerous activity my friends and I engaged in was falling off our bikes.

Today’s hormone-laden little monsters roam the streets like a pack of wolves, attacking anyone unfortunate enough to cross their path—and not carrying a gun.

Kids these days.

From the AP:

Two preteens assaulted a woman walking home through a playground as part of a violent game called “Catch and Wreck,” in which children identify targets they think are homeless and then beat and rob them for fun, police said Tuesday.

An 11-year-old boy was arrested Monday night and charged with aggravated assault, conspiracy and robbery, Philadelphia police Lt. John Walker said.

A 12-year-old girl was charged shortly after the Friday night attack in southwest Philadelphia. The victim was surrounded by children, then punched and hit with sticks, police said. She suffered minor injuries to her knee and head and delayed seeking medical attention to help police with the investigation.

Police also plan to charge the boy in an attack on a 73-year-old man who was beaten and robbed in the same area on March 13, Walker said. The victim in that assault, Vincent Poppa, suffered a heart attack and remains hospitalized.

No more ring-around-the-rosie. Maybe spending some quality time in juvvie will straighten them out. But once caught up in the criminal justice system, well…

What’s fun about hurting people, especially people you don’t know and who never did anything to you? I feel bad if I even thought I may have hurt someone’s feelings, let alone stomping the person’s head into the ground. I guess they don’t make consciences like they used to. I blame Bush.

What do you think: any hope for these little hellions?
