Nice how the police are backing up the crazy racist on fining anyone over 12.
 
2013-10-31 07:56:55 AM
Now *THIS* would be an appropriate time for all the non-Black kids in the neighborhood to dress up as black kids.  Not in the stereotypical and racist "blackface" way, but as a show of solidarity.  If every witch, ghost, ghoul, zombie, cowboy, fireman, police officer, princess and fairy that showed up at this person's door was "black", that would send an *AWESOME* message.

I don't want to discourage the teens from Trick or Treating on the off chance of getting some to see some slutty teen girls.

You need to rethink your racial slurs when the word you use conjures up images of adorable black piglets.
 
2013-10-31 08:40:44 AM
If you're over 12 you shouldn't be trick-or-treating anymore anyway. Unless you're a hot girl, in which case I keep the candy in my basement. Follow me..
 
2013-10-31 08:43:14 AM
Yeah well I say 16 is the age you should have to quit, it was fun and I see no reason why kids shouldn't be doing it all the time.

Yup. The rants and raves section of an city's Craigslist makes youtube commenters look smart. It's a testing ground for amateur trolls that don't know what 4chan is.

Craigslist: you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.

Really, if this person does not want black kids to take his candy, don't give out anything.

Oh joy! Another thread which will soon be full of comments from people who are apparently not racist but choose to spend all of their time attacking anyone who implies that white on black racism is a `bad thing`. Seriously though, I think I pity that kind of person more than anything to be so consumed with hate that they absolutely must (in a warped logic kind of way) defend racism at all costs.

This guy better not leave the house at night for a few years if he doesn't want to come home to a 1000 rolls of TP in his yard.

In my neighborhood the parents that drive in the car with the doors open while there kids walk down the street are the nuisance. Park your damn car and walk with your children you lazy asshole. It is bad enough that they have to take their kids someplace because their neighborhood sucks. At least think of all the other kids running around you POS. And no they are not black people, they are people of all races. Being a shiathead doesn't discriminate.

My kid trick or treated until she was 16. At least that is what she claimed she was doing, she could have been TPing houses or robbing liquor stores for all I know, but she always came home with chocolate so I never asked questions.

2013-10-31 08:50:56 AM
In our neighborhood, I don't see race as the issue, but loud, obnoxious, rude kids from outside our neighborhood with a serious sense of entitlement, and a chip on their shoulder the size of Texas. Because of these kids, we don't let any ghost or goblin pick the candy they want and take it from the bowl themselves. Otherwise "take one please" is ignored, and as big a handful as they can get is taken. And then of course the nasty look that just screams "what are you going to do about it?". Of course none of these kids ever says "thank you" when they're done. This doesn't come from just the out of the neighbor hood kids of course, but at least 90% of it does.
 
2013-10-31 08:51:30 AM
We catch any 7th graders trick or treating and they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

The Fullest Extent of the Law

I was trick or treating with some friends until about Sophomore Year of High School. I still wear a subtle costume every year. (It is not much, Just a werewolf tail). In fact, I am wearing it now, sitting in my office answering some emails an farking posts.

Now, people can usually get away with saying anything that they want on Craigslist, but whether they actually mean what they say is a different story. Racism, in some places, is still an accepted practice. It may be illegal, but not everyone has to enforce it. Go down in the rural southern states and you may find some trouble.

Norfolk Police say they will respond if anyone calls for over-age trick-or-treaters.
"It would be a Class 4 misdemeanor, and would entail a fine, and it wouldn't be against the child, it would be against guardian, the parent," said Spokesman Chris Amos.


I'd be interested in knowing if they have ever actually written one of these tickets.
I highly doubt that this would stand up to a court challenge.
I've never seen anyone "carding" Hallowe'en kids to make sure they're under 12.

So local ordinances become invalid when cited by a "crazy racist"?  It sounds like a pretty stupid law to me, but if it's on the books the police HAVE to back it up...

Weak sauce.  Around here they load up their lawn equipment type trailer with coolers and chairs and farking parade around the neighborhood.  Some even have music systems in the back.  The kids get candy, the adults drink the elixirs in the cooler (except for the driver.... I hope).

Personally I don't mind older kids showing up to get candy... if they are in costume.  Your football jersey and a pillow case don't count.  Of course those types usually come towards the end of the night when I just want to get rid of the last of candy anyway.

What neighborhood/town actually has a fine for "overage" trick or treaters? Damn it, I'd prefer the kids be able to trick or treat rather than doing other stuff on halloween. If it really pisses you off to see teenagers trick or treating, just have a bag of crappy candy for them (smarties and the stuff that kind of sucks) and save the good chocolate containing stuff for the little ones.

2013-10-31 08:59:28 AM
This is when living on a farm in the boondocks is a distinct advantage.  All of our trick-or-treaters are by appointment.  Very few kids are willing to hike a couple miles to hit 5 houses, let alone walk up a half-mile driveway that includes a pretty steep hill.  But if any kids every do, you can bet they'll get something for their trouble!  That kind of effort and perseverance would probably get them dinner and a job offer.

you have got to be kidding me.  how in the hell is "overage trick-or-treating" possibly illegal?  what does that even mean?

halloween is a holiday that everyone can celebrate.  if someone comes to my door wearing a costume, i'm going to give them candy, i don't care if they are 75 years old.  the idea that trick-or-treating is something only children are allowed to do is absolutely idiotic.  next they'll say that only children can watch fireworks on the 4th of july and give tickets to "overage fireworks watchers."

I live in a neighborhood that is just north of the OSU campus student neighborhoods. Kind of an "artsy" type place, lots of college professors, environmentalist types, etc. Anyhow, across the railroad tracks and freeway is a poor, mostly black area. A lot of kids from over there come to my neighborhood to trick or treat, presumably because folks over there don't have much to give. And they are the quietest, most polite kids I have ever seen- they say thank you without being prompted by their parent, usually have creative home- made costumes, etc. I welcome them. If these kids, who mostly know poverty and despair, can come over here one night a week, and find a little bit of happiness, I'm absolutely fine with that.

We've got a nutter that just started posting there apparently, my brother showed me a post. The guy is calling for the end of the government healthcare takeover. He, obviously lacking any knowledge as to the cost of healthcare, calls for the end of Medicare, Medicaid, and the Veterans Administration replacing them with a $300 stipend (yearly? it doesn't say). He also wants to eliminate government disability for everyone, including veterans, except 'for a small, one-time payment.'

Yeah they kind of buried the lead there. What kind of place makes it a misdemeanor for a 13 year old to trick or treat?

I'm taking a wild guess that this is an affluent neighborhood we're talking about.

Can someone please to my ignorant foreign ass in a non racist way why people be trick or treating outside of their own neighborhood?

Because the only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that halloween sucks in their own neighbourhoods and that doesn't exactly paint Mr RacistCraigsLister as totally without a point.

maybe if you have people living in poorer neighborhoods or older neighborhood that cant afford to buy or dont give out candy. so the best thought is, "hey lets go to the 'hood or sub division that mid upper class. theyll have candy there". so people drive to better parts. its not uncommon at all

I've got nothing against "overage" trick or treaters.  I don't care if you're 8 or 18 as long as you're in costume and polite.

In my old neighborhood I ended up stopping the hand outs when the only people showing up were 17 year olds not even in costume and saying "Yo! Gimme candy!" and causing a ruckus if you said no (no TPing, eggs sometimes, mostly just swearing and yelling).

It stopped me from handing out any candy at all because they ended up crowding out the little kids.  There were some incidents of bullying (mugging the younger crowd for their bags and such)...it ruined the fun for that area.

It had nothing to do with race...the jerks were pretty much across the entire spectrum (as was the neighborhood)

I lived in the Larchmont area when my ex-wife was stationed at Portsmouth Naval Hospital.  My two neighbors were ok, but several people in that area campaigned to try to make it illegal to rent out a house in the neighborhood.  They all felt that renters were too low-class for the area.  For them Hampton Boulevard is an impassable river that should keep everyone out who didn't own a house there.

Farking rent was $1400 a month.  Never let your wife be in charge of finding your rental house.
