I get his frustration, but this is just too close to vigilanteism. They're just kids, and posting their pics online is only going to lead to harassment and mistaken identities. Combine that with the attractive nuisance and unsupervised (read: unsafe) condition of his house I'd say things are pretty damned even.

Human safety is worth more than your McMansion, I'm afraid.

Latinwolf: Headso: I read some of the tweets from the website the guy put up, the funny thing is it sounded like some of the kids didn't even know the party was being held in a house that was broken into to. Saying stuff like "thanks to the hosts, this was a great party"

And you thank the host by trashing his house, so whether or not the home was broken into doesn't excuse your own actions in destroying the place.


And you know who the vandals are, how?

Slappy McLongstockings: Guadior42: What the Fark are you talking about?

For instance..the NFL and the Pink Ribbon problem. They sell the Pink Ribbon football and the Pink Ribbon people sell their Pink Ribbon logo to companies like Yoplait who makes products with chemicals known to cause breast cancers. Same with Victoria's Secret. So many of their products contain parabens.

The chemicals used in the production of NFL paraphernalia all over the world kills people while others cheer with them and they think they have a moral high ground?

I think not.

Think of all the useless stupid crap made for each NFL player and the diseases it gives the most vulnerable.  He should feel shame for the countless deaths his organization has contributed to as well as each NFL fan that continues to support people that give others diseases which lead to a painful death.

Shut up, Dorn.

Thanks tommy for showing how seriously ill-informed you are..perhaps you need to feel good about yourself as an NFL fan that can't face up to the fact that they are poisoning people for stupid foam fingers.

I wish you well in your voyage of denial so you can at least live with yourself day to day.

Any day some NFL player wishes to discuss their role in being instrumental in promoting products that kill kids....come step up to the line with a real warrior.


The NFL gives me a reason to drink beer in the morning on Sunday and helps me vent my rage by watching grown men run full speed at each other. I won't let any pansies like you take it away from me. So stfu and go away.

You can find the information about the Pink Ribbon problem easily. They publish it on their site under cause oriented marketing and talk about Yoplait and a cosmetics company too. Their cause apparently is making money..not preventing cancers or they wouldn't allow those companies to use the logo.

Saying they are "just kids" is a total cop out. That doesn't excuse your behavior. Further, he is exposing the kids and doing the right thing allowing them to come forward, or have their parents make them come forward. Your actions have consequences even as a "kid". You don't get to run around doing whatever you want without any punishment and recourse. He deserves restitution, which would come from the families of the "kids".

So every one who has a summer house, or even leaves their house unattended can not hold anyone liable for breaking in and trashing it because no one was home at the time?

So if 300 kids pop by your house when you are out of town, destroy it, you are going to let bygones be bygones?

Plus these kids posted their own pics online, that is where he got them from.  They are the ones that put it out there.

How are these kids endangered by their pics online?  That the cops will arrest them for a crime they committed, that they themselves posted?

Guy gave them a chance to own it, even threw a big lunch and provided all the stuff necessary to clean up the joint, and only four people showed.

Agreed. I lied to my parents when I was 16-17 and went to parties, but there was hell to pay the day they found out. If I was one of these little shiatheads (We partied at a friend's house, never broke into unoccupied homes) my parents would have gladly let me be charged and shamed me online.

I'm sure Holloway will stand by his word and won't press charges on the kids that confess, but I wouldn't want to take that chance. And just because he doesn't press charges it doesn't mean the police won't. You know they took the kids that confessed and told them to start coughing up names or they'd be charged with underage drinking, etc.

Even if my kid was in pictures taken at the party, good luck proving the jackass kid in the picture was actually my jackass kid.

Agreed.  My parents were all about taking responsibility for your actions.  They warned me that misdeeds would be met with consequences.  If I then went forward and misbehaved . . . well, I had been warned.  Had I been one of these little miscreants, they would have made me wish I was in jail.  It would have been protective custody.  And all of their punishment would be accomplished without laying hand on me.  My Dad never beat me or spanked me for misbehavior but I often wished he would.

Which attitude would make you and excellent Defense attorney and a lousy parent.  An attorney's ethical obligation ot their client is to do everything they can to protec them from civil or criminal libaility.  A parent's ethical duty to thier kids is to teach them that actions have consequences and to take responsibility for the wrong they do in the world

1), plead guilty and apologize and she'd do everything she could for him to help him do his time and get out as soon as possible
2) take his chances at trial, in which case, no matter what happened, he was dead to her, and she would never speak to him again, especially not if he got locked up

Some of these "kids" were not minors. They're looking at jail time or at the minimum a nice criminal record. At the least, everyone else should have a criminal charge on their record, and some form of probation. They should be required to answe "Yes" to the employment/college application question "Were you ever arrested/convicted of a crime?"

Yes, the cries of "But now my child can't go to the college of their choice and will have to *shudder* go to community college!" will ring out from 300+ parents, I am sure.

I do. That's why I'm a firm believer in tin foil. You got to keep the ELF-RF mind control signals out some how.

Seriously, the first on the list says (and you're going on about):

 products still contain parabens, a class of chemicals linked to breast cancer

However it has no citation on this link of something used by pretty much everyone on everyday. So I tried to find it. Instead I found that there has been no link found (with citations):

"Based on these comparisons using worst-case assumptions pertaining to total daily exposures to parabens and dose/potency comparisons with both human and animal no-observed-effect levels (NOELs) and lowest-observed-effect levels (LOELs) for estrogen or DES, it is biologically implausible that parabens could increase the risk of any estrogen-mediated endpoint, including effects on the male reproductive tract or breast cancer. Additional analysis based on the concept of a hygiene-based margin of safety (HBMOS), a comparative approach for assessing the estrogen activities of weakly active EACs, demonstrates that worst-case daily exposure to parabens would present substantially less risk relative to exposure to naturally occurring EACs in the diet such as the phytoestrogen daidzein."

interesting logic.  By that same logic, the 1%-er should use his or her privilege to generate publicity to publicly shame those who have committed the wrong, and seek the assistance of the authorities (who, of course, would want to help out the 1%-er over the rest of us) in rounding up the rabble and putting them on trial in order to show the populace just who is in charge.

Am I doing it right?

BTW: read the article and look at the pics.  You're (mostly) looking at privileged kids behaving badly.  The righteous indignation doesn't work as good when the people committing the crime against a 1%-er are also "of means".

Where are the campaigns for testicular cancer? This pink ribbon shiat is discriminatory. I say 'Brownish-Yellow Ribbons for Testicular Cancer!'


So you've never heard of livestrong?

TMZ is reporting that the house is in foreclosure and was abandoned at the time of party and that Holloway is making a big deal of this to solicit donations.

super_grass: theflatline: super_grass: I get his frustration, but this is just too close to vigilanteism. They're just kids, and posting their pics online is only going to lead to harassment and mistaken identities. Combine that with the attractive nuisance and unsupervised (read: unsafe) condition of his house I'd say things are pretty damned even.

Human safety is worth more than your McMansion, I'm afraid.


So every one who has a summer house, or even leaves their house unattended can not hold anyone liable for breaking in and trashing it because no one was home at the time?

So if 300 kids pop by your house when you are out of town, destroy it, you are going to let bygones be bygones?

Plus these kids posted their own pics online, that is where he got them from.  They are the ones that put it out there.

How are these kids endangered by their pics online?  That the cops will arrest them for a crime they committed, that they themselves posted?

Guy gave them a chance to own it, even threw a big lunch and provided all the stuff necessary to clean up the joint, and only four people showed.

IF you're some 1%-er with a house that you don't live in all year, don't be surprised when people take advantage of the situation. Get some insurance and move on.


I really, really hope you're trolling. If you aren't, you know how I know you've never needed to use homeowners insurance before? He'll be lucky if he sees 5k out of that 20k damage.
