UberDave: I thought rocks were supposed to protect us.

They're pretty effective against tigers.

"Metro says that Metrobuses traveling in parts of Southeast Washington are being pelted with rocks."

That would be "Sou'feast". Sure, Anacostians will do that. It is their nature. It is their cultural mandate, their way, their oeuvre.

Were the assault rocks or hunting rocks? Makes a difference.

I really have to marble at the comments on the article. Sometimes we take common sense for granite. Let's just hope the message gets out and boulder initiatives don't have to be taken to stonewall this dangerous activity.

If throwing rocks as busses is wrong, I don't want to be right.

I was probably about 11. My brother and his friend was about 8. We like gentley tossing rockish objects at cars back then. One day my brother flings Dive-Dive (The submarine Gobot) at a car. Turns out it was an undercover detective. Lights go on, car slams to a halt. We are so screwed. My brother and his friend take off running. But suddenly, my cunning 11 year old mine forms a plan. I stay put. The cops gets out and starts yelling at me for throwing things at cars.
Me: I had nothing to do with that.
Cop: Yes you did! You and those two other kids were throwing things at my car!
Me: I have no idea who those kids are.
Cop: Bullshiat! You where standing there with them.
Me: I was waiting to cross the street, when they walked up. One of them said "hey watch this" and threw that thing at your car. Don't you think I I was with them, I would have have run off too instead of waiting her for you to get me?
Cop: ...oh...well I guess that makes sense. And you say you don't know who they are?
Me: Nope. Never saw them before.
Cop: Okay. Just don't let me catch you throwing things.
Me: No problem. Have a good day.

And then he left. See I knew If we all ran, he would have caught us, and that would mean ass-beatings. By staying there, I got myself out of trouble, and gave them time to get away.

Now you might think I got away without learning a lesson. Well I did. That time. When I was 16 I hit a car with a handful of gravel, and the guy in the car did not care for it. So much so that he pulled a gun on us and started blasting at us as we where hauling ass through the woods. That was the last time I ever threw rocks at cars.

Luckily, we banned large capacity rock-throwers under the Brady Bill, otherwise there'd be many more casualties.

Holy crap, Subby; you weren't farking kidding!!!

I don't think anyone has actually told the kids that it was wrong. Raised by a single parent because the other is running from child support or in jail, the single mom is too busy working several jobs to teach them right from wrong. How would they know not to do it unless someone tells them.

"Wait a minute, you mean to say that throwing rocks at buses is dangerous *and* against the law? Well, that gives me a whole new perspective."
