Saraland police said they didn't intend to be party poopers.

But last month, several teens in neighboring Semmes were shot at after toilet-papering a house, and police were trying to avoid a similar situation in Saraland, cops told the station.

Stephens and his crew weren't arrested or cited, because buying tons of TP isn't illegal.

Still, local teens said they wished the cops would cool it on the crackdown.

"It would be more normal if they caught us in the act of doing it," Stephens told the station.

"It would have been funnier to me if they waited till we started (rolling a house) and just all swarmed us."


I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.

The grocery stores by my home will refuse to sell anyone under 21 more than one dozen eggs or a 4-pack of toilet paper the week leading up to Halloween. I'll see maybe two homes in a 3-mile radius that have been TPed or egged. Leaves the police to respond to important calls.

What kind of an asshole calls the cops because their house has been TPed or egged?

Somehow I have no sympathy for these poor little vandals. fark them.

I for one welcome our new toilet paper police overlords.

Cops shouldn't be the decision makers here. Toilet paper itself isn't illegal.

It would be funny to wrap your own house in that town just to troll the cops.

Amateurs.
Always start the purchase with a few bottles of Kaopectate before pulling the TP out of the cart.

That's fine.

When it's the po-leese interfering with legitimate business, I have a problem.

One point to consider, this is small town Alabama. The cops know all the kids and their parents by their first names.

No point in getting the ACLU lawyers all fired up.

Back in my day, you'd soak the TP in lighter fluid prior, let it dry THEN roll the yard and light it on fire upon completion.... AAAAAAND WE LIKED IT!!!

funny...i used to live in CHICKASAW, just down the road from SARALAND. moved away from there over 25 years ago.

this is the 2nd time since we moved from there that i've seen saraland in the news...the other time was about 20 years ago when an amtrak train plunged off a bridge into the bayou waters below :(

This is ok because it is small town kids. When kids assert their rights the only acceptable response is "isn't that precious?" and smugly reaffirm your own adult wisdom and sophistication. So what that what we did is illegal? those "people" are stupid, Fark em.

Vandals have NO SKILLZ at anything. They destroy stuff because they can't do anything productive because they just don't have the brain power to do it. So it's either destroy stuff or watch the grass grow.

In other news, this is a discrimination or harassment case just waiting to happen.

bubo_sibiricus: When it's the po-leese interfering with legitimate business, I have a problem.


TFA doesn't make it clear, but from the situation, I'm guessing the store asked the cops to tell the kids they couldn't buy the TP, so that they didn't have to do it themselves.
 
2012-10-12 08:23:41 AM
They should've shopped at CostCo. I think the smallest pack of TP they sell is about a hundred rolls.

Shoot someone for TPing your lawn? Really. I guess some people don't really need an excuse.

The boy who lived next door to me for years used to TP my lawn every year. I knew it was him and his friends, but I never said a word about it. Actually, the did an awesome job of it. I had to admire it.

No id say copycat vandals have no skills. Its all tp spraypaint and eggs. Lets have some creativity in our vandalism.
Dump a bucket of beet juice on a wood porch see if it stains pink.
Change everyones address tags/mailboxes on a street.
Change everyones roadside bulbs to orange.
Someone you wanna get? Look at the house and think of something new ffs.

i always admired that rare perfectly FORKED lawn. i mean there would be 1 or 2 lawns in my town that would look like a replica of arlington national cemetary done in plastic white forks. THAT is some skillful vandalism!

See, when I was a kid, I did it right. TP is for rank amatures. I would open up old VHS tapes and pull out the tape spool. There is a lot of tape on those things. The spool spins freely in your hand to make it easy to run around and wrap things up. Plus it has a little weight to it, so it will really fly. The small size and weight also helps it to fall back down through tree limbs. And where mag tape really shines is that it is pretty much forever. You can't hose it out of your tree, and no matter how much it rains, it will still be there. Plus it isn't too strong, so if you try and pull it down, it will just snap.

No, my friend, if you have mag tape all over your house and in your trees, you've got a long day involving ladders, and pole trimmers. Meanwhile you house will glisten in the sun, like a beacon for douchebaggery everywhere.

/I was an asshole kid.
//I'm still an asshole, but not nearly as much, and I've really cut down on the vandalism

Police using the spectre of "gun violence" to interfere with the right of stores to sell and the right of citizens to buy toilet paper?
No

Police are here to help us. You can trust them.

One must be careful with forking. There are people with neurological or skeletal/muscular disorders that make retrieving all those forks problematic and even dangerous. TPing can be ignored, since rain will take care of it eventually.

My parents used to make us get permission before we TP'd a house. Oddly enough, a lot of parents will say yes if they know it's going to be the kid that has to go out and clean it up. So then my mom would take us all shopping for the supplies, escorted us down the street and showed us the proper way to wrap a bush. It was awesome... we were probably 12 or so.

Of course, they gave my target permission to return the favor, so I was lucky enough to clean up my own yard soon after. But that was kinda fun, too.

When toilet paper is outlawed, only outlaws will have toilet paper.

The best time to TP someone's lawn is an evening (after dark) when it's expected to rain later that same night
 
2012-10-12 12:51:31 PM
In past years they've been too angel soft on these vandals.

Interesting. In my neck of the woods, it's no TP, eggs, flour, or spray paint to anyone under 18. Period.
