this post strikes close to home, i think the biggest reason youths do this sort of thing is because they know more then ever now adays they can get
away with it because of being juvenile.
i live in a rough area, and this very thing has happened to my family. my elderly grandfather was attacked like this with me and my brother walking to
the shops. a group of youths were walking past and as we go past them my grandfather was punched in the back of the head by one of the group.
the group then proceeded to scatter and my brother took off after the culprit while i stayed with my grandfather who had collapsed to the ground.
i rang 000 and we ended up taking him to hospital as he was unconcious.
i found out later when my brother got to the hospital that he had chased the kid down and beat the living # out of him, dragged him home to his
mothers and left him on the porch (turns out he knew who it was, his mother was a junkie)
my grandfather was ok but suffered severe concussion and we were worried for a while because him being elderly it could have been alot worse.
we figured that would be the end of it but a few days later we got a visit from the police and the mother was pressing charges against my brother, we
had already filed a report with the police about the son.
to cut a long story short, the kid got off with a few months in juvie (and he would have got less except he had lots of priors), and my brother got
sentenced to 6months in prison. (no priors, good honest citizen)
really shone a light on the whole situation for us. so if it ever happens to you and you think you can be a hero and go after them just make sure if
you do you kill the bastards and make sure no one ever finds the body and you will be doing the whole world a favour.
