Anytime a person gets hit in the face with a rock you should say "thats gotta hurt"

He should have held the book in front of his face. "Sticks and Stone May Break My Bones....." obviously didn't work.

Seriously, I hope the man is okay.

I hope that the guy is OK and does not add a new defnition to the language; "He looks like he got hit in the face with a rock!", as opposed to, "He looks like he got hit in the face with a bag of nickles!"

Now, look! No one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle! Do you understand?! Even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say 'Jehovah.'

It shall be unlawful for any child under the age of eighteen (18) years to wander, lounge, loaf, loiter or play in, about, or upon any public street, alley, sidewalk, vacant lot, public place or other place normally accessible to the general public for public use, whether on foot, or in a vehicle or by any means, during the hours of curfew which are hereby specified for each day of each week as provided, to wit:

so, according to this, a kid under 18 and caught out during the proscribed times is really okay if he/she is: plundering; ravaging; lingering; tiptoing; studying; or speculating? just don't lounge after the deadline! $10-$100 plus up to 30 days. hey why haven't these miniscofflaws been charged with that too? maybe they were caught out 'investigating," so didn't fit the law?

maybe t they were a crazed gang of phonologists! studying their craft? hey, maybe they were out so late because they were diligent little children who tried to get their homework done ahead of time and they stayed late at the library, takes time to walk from the library to 10th and Penn and they felt threatened by the rascally grownups who were lookin' funny so they took to hand the only convenient weapon. what if one of the kids had had conceal and carry, maybe the grownups wouldn't bother the little innocents? yes, I know these little angels (with dirty faces) aren't old enough for the current conceal carry law, but they make an effective argument to change it! guns are rightly called "equalizers."

momma... I have no idea--as I said, I was just throwing out a guess.

If we have those services here, then they must've been transferred for other reasons. I was hoping someone who knew might respond. It does seem that a high percentage of local accident victims are transferred to KC.

scenebooster, I'm not sure whether it's a great comment or shows the fact that you have nothing better to do on a Thursday afternoon than to list every song that references a rock. I'm guessing the latter.

Scenebooster~ That was great! Thanks for a rockslide of evidence that these stony-hearted brats were, indeed rocking out to unauthorized tunes. I hope the next time these pea-gravel-brained kids ask permission to roam at night, their parents will refuse to granite.

As to why the victim had to be transferred... Just a guess, but maybe he required maxillofacial repair surgery that wasn't available locally.

"If we actually held parents accountable for their children, then the crime rate would drop."

I don't know, Confrontation. I'm asleep at 2 am, and I have the kind of kid who'd sneak out at night if we lived in town. He certainly wouldn't be out at that hour with my knowledge and consent.

I wonder how many of these kids' parents were aware they weren't at home. I wonder how many of these kids' parents are still completely clueless that their children were out and involved in this incident.

Personally I'd favor a midnight curfew for kids under 16. I can't think of any good reason a kid that age would need to be out at that hour without an adult present.

Confrontation, the parents will be victims of the single parent syndrome. This attack was planned to keep the WRAP program going. It is a conspiracy.

This is one of those situations where who knows what happened? unless you know a lot more about it than what is here in this blurb...

What were these juveniles doing out at 2 am? Particularly on a school night?
