    Ugly: "Catch and Wreck"

    I have no understanding how a group of children could develop a mindset where this "game" is funny and acceptable. The worst part is if any of the people they attacked were armed I think they would be in a heap of trouble for drawing on kids 12-15 years old.

    Vincent Poppa, 73, remains hospitalized at Methodist Hospital a full week after he was hit in the back of the head with a gun, knocked unconscious and stomped by a group of four or five male youths near the playground around 9 p.m. March 13.
    That could turn out to be a deadly game they are playing.

    Philadelphia is having BIG problems with all these minority youths right now, just last night there was another "flash mob" incident where thousands of these kids showed up on South Street, and caused a near-riot situation.

    Same thing happened a few months back where innocent bystanders got caught up in one and were severely beaten, just for the fun of it.

    They are animals, plain and simple and don't have any regard for life.

    It's called "Killadelphia" for a reason.

    In the game, a group of children between the ages of nine and 15 congregating at the Finnegan Playground at 69th Street and Grovers Avenue beat, strike and stomp adults they believe may be homeless
    They are wrong to call it a "game". It is a gang assault. The perpetrators should be found, caught, and jailed. Calling it a game condones it as something kids do and makes it sound more innocent.

    he was hit in the back of the head with a gun, knocked unconscious and stomped by a group of four or five male youths ...medical personnel found footprints on Poppa's head and sneaker marks on his body
    Seriously, a gun? A game? A better title would be "Violent teen gang nearly beats elderly to death"

    Many of them think that it is a game and as long as it reported as a "game" it will continue undaunted....

    Isn't this the same place where the Chief of police is ticked off that his law abiding citizens are getting CHPs from Florida?

    Drawing? Somebody is going to shoot one of them, or maybe several. Honestly, if I feel my life is threatened age is the least of my concerns. A group of people violently attacking me is going to be dealt with as a deadly threat. That's absolutely crazy. But don't worry the police will protect them. Or Florida will.

    These "kids" consider it a game, because the JUVENILE systems fail to do anything to prevent this from re-occuring. They laugh at us around here when we tell them the will be going to Juvenile Hall. Many of them say it's better than home, so let's go.

    No different than the big boy Judicial/ Prison systems.....


    As far as shooting one of them or many of them...... tough call... don't really know how they are staging the attacks. It may happen. The Police may do it, and then the 'people' will get upset that these are just children. Yes they are children that think video games are real! Violence in=violence out.

    That was kind of my point. Just drawing on these kids would get you excoriated, if you have to shoot one or several of them the consequences would be even more dire.

    All I can say is; once the decision was made to assault anyone, those kids instantly became little punks in my book. Personally, I'd like to see um try to do such a sick thing while I'm out and about. It'd be like a bull in a china shop, and I'd make up for what their parents obviously forgot to instill in um over the years in just a few minutes time.

    Little punks grow to be big punks, better to show um the ramifications of their ways early I say.

    Just wow, I would be looking for the kids who did this especially if it was family or someone I knew. I dont know how much changed from when I was younger to now but I would of never thought of going out and kicking the cr*p out of any elders unless they attacked my family.

    Unfortunately this isn't just a Philadelphia problem. This is an epidemic.

    There doesn't seem to be a solution that won't violate today's politically correct view of the world. After all, we sure can't blame these poor innocent children since they live in a bad environment.

    All I can try to do is stay as far away from their breeding grounds as possible. Maybe if they take out the children of enough liberal politicians and community organizers we'll get some action.

    Honestly when I see "Bad Enviorment" I call B.S. I was a "product" (From what I have been told) a bad enviorment. and I think I could of gone a lot worst then my bad habbits (Speeding on occasions) I know people who had a better child hood then me and are in jail for dealing. I honestly think spankins should be returned. Maybe they will start learning or strickter punishments.
