No Police Response Despite Massive Damage by Local Teens


Halloween in Gerritsen Beach is always bad, but in years past the police at least attempted to show up even if it was a lacking response. This year the teens ran unchecked by police and terrorized a neighborhood all day and night.

50+ teens held their ground at Gerritsen and Florence Avenues and Seba Avenue Park for a better part of Halloween. They formed a firing line on both sides of Gerritsen Avenue. They were throwing eggs, shaving cream cans, potatoes, rocks, at anything that drove past and anyone who dared to confront them. They even started throwing eggs at people, parents with young children and strollers. One parent said “I saw them jump a delivery car with kids banging on it, eggs getting slammed into it and some ran on the car”


Everyone was calling 911. There was not one person on Gerritsen Avenue who was not on the phone with 911, or the 61 and 63 Precincts desks. No police responded.

An older man in his late 60’s was driving along Gerritsen Avenue when his car was hit by eggs, when he exited the vehicle he was pelted by dozens of eggs, rocks were thrown, chucks of brick, and someone tossed a hammer. Parents and community members stepped in to protect this man and started to chase the kids to away.

As the Vollies were investigating a possible weed fire. Fire Chief John Czapp’s jeep was pelted and he was hit in the face with an egg. No police responded.

NO POLICE SHOWED UP TO RESPOND. Let’s let that sink in. After possibly dozens or more 911 calls over a two to three hour period NO ONE SHOWED UP.

If you thought the kids behavior was disgusting, the police behavior was incomprehensible. Everyone felt helpless as the neighborhood was terrorized by the teens

After a few hours the 61st Precinct did sent one marked car which was pelted. But as soon as it pulled up the kids ran back weeds and the patrol car left. The kids cheered in victory. The officers did not exit their vehicle nor speak with anyone. They simply left.

The 63 did send two community affairs officers who were also pelted in their unmarked car. They did exit their vehicle and pursued the teens by walking on foot to see if they can catch some of the kids. The kids being locals – immediately ran to the woodchips and exited at channel.

  • They put out of commission three buses. Shutting down the B31 line. The bus operator and bus supervisor called 911 – No response.
  • They pelted a deliveryman on a moped assaulting him – No police response.
  • In a classic hate crime approach the teens also chased two hasidic jewish men throwing rocks at them
  • They covered cars on Gerritsen Avenue with shaving cream.

GerritsenBeach.net has been covering Halloween for years now. This was by far the worst Halloween. It was not even this bad when the previous 61 Commanding Officer Captain Stella neglected the neighborhood. At least he sent marked patrol cars and supervisors down at the last minute. However Deputy Inspector Mastrokostas seems to have abandoned Gerritsen Beach letting criminals terrorize the neighborhood, leaving residents to resort to vigilante justice. Shame on them.

      If these baby-felons are already planning next year, I would suggest that many of the GB parents start taking holidays to supervise these punks.

      Heck, even if you’re not a parent, kick in a few holiday-night hours to prevent this. I suspect that defeating their crimes, even for a hour or two, would send most home to their urine stained sheets where they could pout and dream dreams of being tough.

      If the police can’t or won’t protect your rights and property, you must either do it yourself or decide that these punks own you outright.

    • Mark

      I would also offer that the open admissions by these punks is probably enough to bring their parents in to civil court.

      That may motivate the parents to exert themselves in controlling their horrid little birth control failures.

  • Bugg

    Also CRIME IS DOWN. This was all a windstorm. Besides all the damaged stuff, even the old guy and 3 city buses, are well past useful life and fully depreciated. Look at how the 61 and 63 play with these numbers, especially being that it was the last day of a 31-day month. For some reason, NYPD thinks a 31-day month is a special occasion in their ConStat calculations.

            White kids. Middle to upper middle class. Obviously with nothing better to do but try to be "gangsta" and get some sort of rep. These children, sadly, are our future. This country is truly in a sad sad state, and I am glad that I left Brooklyn when I did. It has gone down the tubes. It seems as though even white families have thrown up their hands and said "Screw it I am not gonna raise my kids" and left them to get their education and life lessons from youtube, jackass, and music. Good Going. Keep up the good work New York. here is a clue. If you can no longer raise any decent kids, keep your damn legs closed. Practice Condom sense.

            Don’t get me wrong, I’m on generally the same side as you on this whole thing, but well, Actually, this comment is just flat out rude! I’m no advocate for the kids or their parents, but I’m surprised so many people like it, simply because of the language and insinuations -you all think you’re any better than the kids by using and approving of such vulgar language? What do you think you’re getting accomplished by making such absolutely disgusting comments? Name calling is even more immature than the deplorable behavior we are all so upset about coming from these kids and their parents!
            I hate to stoop this low, but “Shame on you!”
            Seriously, what great examples you are!

          • well 3 states away

            You sound like an idiot. Let the kids damage your property and what are you going to do about it? Counsel them? That is what got us here in the first place. They are lucky they didn’t egg the wrong car and get shot. If this is their idea of gangsta, they better recognize. If some kid eggs my car, I don’t give a damn how many of them there are, you get your crowbar, call your boys and crack some craniums. They damn sure won’t be doing that shit next year after they recover from the hospital visit.

          • A Mother from 3 States Away

            lol, sure, I’m sure they could use some serious counseling, but I wasn’t suggesting that was going to solve the problem here.
            Actually, for the record, if someone were to assault me with a deadly weapon (rock, brick, hammer, etc), they’d be regretting it if they lived to regret it, because I would very likely shoot them if I happened to be open carrying at the time, or if it were in my house. (though I don’t pretend to know the OC laws in New York, as I’ve only been to the state once and don’t tend to research things over there; but that kind of crap wouldn’t be happening in my neighborhood I can guarantee it -no one here would take it!)
            First of all, you don’t mess with my kids (if I were the woman with a baby stroller…), and if they were to endanger my sons, they would pay for it;
            Second, you show respect for others, they show blatant disrespect like they did at GB and it’s not just going to get shrugged off… (not saying it’s being shrugged off there, but you seem to think I wouldn’t do anything but ‘counsel’ them… lol)
            I’m not saying that violence is the answer or anything, but when someone assaults someone else, they have the right to protect themselves, and I certainly would. (counseling them -that’s funny!)
            I fully agree they need to be taught a lesson, however do not pretend to be the one qualified to do it. (seeing as I’m nowhere near there and was not assaulted myself; but I do say, they assault you -let ‘em have it! just don’t have too much fun teaching them their lesson)
            You obviously didn’t read my post very well, or if you did, you didn’t understand it, because I’m not trying to stand up for them in the least, nor am I saying they shouldn’t face Serious consequences for their actions -you commit an adult crime, you are charged as an adult, period.
            I was actually just saying that making such vulgar comments doesn’t really give the commenter much validity… -aka doesn’t make them seem like a very intelligent person…
            State your opinion all you want, I’m good with that, just do it in a decent manor if you want it respected. It was one of the few comments on ‘this side’ that I disliked -simply because of the nature of it. It was -in my opinion, simply unnecessary bashing. -just my opinion

When is it EVER just fun and games to egg a police car, assault an MTA worker, assault a vollie responding to a call, jeopardize the safety of a motorcycle driver or another driver????

            Throw your eggs at EACHOTHER, not at the non-egging community. Go into the weeds, throw eggs, shaving-cream eachother but leave the rest of us alone!!!

          • Perhaps the community should go egg the houses of the kids involved and then see how the parents feel. Just a thought.

        Guess what? That's why these kids are getting away with this. They are kids of cops, firemen, and other civil servants. I would even say something that some of you will not come out and say: There is some corruption afoot. How can the cops show up and not do anything? How can they not show up? Please reread above for the answer as to why nothing was done. The little darlings are "protected". I have seen this before in another neighborhood. The same things were happening and the same things I said above were going on.

        • Perhaps it's time to get the media involved – what about the mayor?

            I spent my Halloween outside of GB and I ran into some problems with some unproductive members of society and coincidently I also dealt with a few cops who didn't care to take any action. Why do they get all this over time on Halloween if they aren't going to do anything?

And the above is exactly why kids shouldnt be on fb-they are too stupid.

      How would you suppose this evidence would get to the parents? I don't think the parents are monitoring the kids facebook accounts. I think this is the best option, let it be on the internet for everyone to see. Maybe the parents will be pressured to do something.

      I applaud the Vollies for what they did, at least they did something, and no they did not hose down the kids, they hosed down the tot park and blacktop area. No place to sit or hide ammunition when it is soaking wet.

            People don’t understand minors don’t have “special rights” when in the public domain like this. They were photographed by concerned citizens doing malicious acts.

            I highly doubt this will show up on college admission essays or background checks. I also highly doubt many of these kids will even graduate high school.

            To "AVAIL" WRONG!!!!!!! This is NOT the same reporting as a police blotter in a newspaper would have reported it. FIRST-These children (right or wrong) ARE MINORS!!! They should NOT have had thier names or any of thier FB pages posted. That is a CLEAR violation of privacy. If you have ever read a newspaper, you would see, "name's not released because they are minors". Taking photos outside in a public place is one thing, BUT-the screenshots of these kids pages on FB clearly show other people on thier pages, and if THEY are not "friends" with Gerritsen.net, then Gerritsen.net HAS NO RIGHT POSTING them, NO MATTER WHAT THE so called EDITOR wrote. That's the whole point of setting your privacy to FRIENDS ONLY!!! As usual, the editor of this STUPID site DOES NOT have his FACTS straight!

          • One of the only sane

            Then the kids pages should have been made private?

            This is ridiculous. Why are we even vouching for these kids? They have no regard for property or the standard of living in any way shape or form. Minors or not, What. Are we going to let them flourish into little monsters? If these problems arent resolved, they will grow into even worse menaces-to-society.

          • Anonymous

            Your argument is invalid. These kids are obviously old enough to post their OWN photos on facebook, which is not private in any way. If the parents of these hooligans don't want a scarlet letter displayed upon their "little precious-es", they should control their child's internet privileges better.

            The editor of this site is 110% right for exposing the worthless trash talking little punks that are the children of GB. If the authorities refuse to do their jobs, the responsibility falls upon the good citizens of the community to take action, whether it is posting the legally taken photos of a criminal act in progress, or sleuthing out the punk's facebook page to expose the truth.

            You’re one to talk about getting facts straight:
            When Minors commit Adult crimes, they are charged as Adults. Period.
            All you who are trying to scoop this under the rug and call out the editor of this site are trying to side-step the point: the editor of this site is not the ‘criminal’ (in my opinion), it is the ones who actually committed crimes!
            People calling this guy a pedophile are neglecting to realize that in order for someone to be your friend on facebook, you have to first Accept their request; if these kids didn’t know this guy, or there was any question about the safety of adding him, they shouldn’t have added him. He did not Force them to add him, so maybe instead of whining about how ‘wrong’ it is for someone to have used ‘private’ information, maybe they should talk to their kids about adding him as a friend in the first place… If they don’t want their facebook friends to view and share their personal info, then don’t add them as friends.
            It’s just stupid of them to add someone they don’t know they can trust…
            Use some common sense people, common sense…

            The owner of this website did not request the children to be facebook friends, the children requested to be friends with his facebook page called Gerritsen Beach. The children initiated the “friendship”. Daniel Cavanaugh should sue everyone who called him a pedophile for slander.

            You are blaming the wrong people, besides being incorrect.

            If these felons were not committing crimes, there would be no story, no pictures, no facebook.

            The blame lies entirely with these delinquents.

        • Enough already

          If they want to act like punks, then they will be treated like punks. It is high time that these children and their parents need to take responsibility for their actions.

          If you don't want your children "outed" like this in the future, then make sure that you monitor their social networking pages, teach them not to behave like common criminals, and serve them an appropriate punishment when they get out of line.

          This is an absolute disgrace to the neighborhood. The children and parents involved should be ashamed of themselves.

            If you can’t handle your own child and provide them with a proper moral compass, then you should send them to a respected boarding school. Military/reform school ONLY to severe cases, but military and/or reform schools are usually far too preachy and reliant on religion.

            Seriously. I understand the point your making, that most of these kids are far too unruly at this point to control, and that’s probably true. But there’s still steps to take. Hell, if I didn’t have great grades my parents would have told me, “if you don’t get into college, then you’re going into the military.” And I’m a GIRL.

    I was always told tell a kid no and they will just do it 10x worse I remember when I was younger Halloween was about eggs and shaving cream 4th of July was fireworks It does annoy me that kids today have none of that and are arrested and harrased yes harrased by cops and adults who did the same stuff that they are yelling at them for yes it can get outta hand but to me rolling up and down the avenue sitting there watching them will only egg them on let them just stay up in the fields and bomb each other and im sure things will be different as for hosing them down im not for that that is just wrong and im sure thats not what support the vollies for.. Every neighborhood does the same stuff as kids down here but its a shame that they are labeled terrible criminals when they are just kids great ego boosters we have down here I dont see other websites knocking thier neighborhood kids… Are you gonna post criminal pictures of them whne it snows and they start throwing snowballs or will you have the 61 pct down in here in swat gear

    • avail

      Should the avenue be shut down so these kids can bomb each other? Parents shouldn't be allowed to take their kids trick or treating to the homes on Gerritsen? We dont need police in swat gear but a better response would have been nice. Ever since I was a kid, fireworks have been illegal and cops confiscate eggs and shaving cream on Holloween, it has never been okay so you argument about saying no will make things worse, whats has gotten worse is the lack of respect for police, fire, and people in general. That is on the parents.

      See my comment above about the Vollies before you judge.

          I think I understand where you are coming from but I don't think you understand how bad it actually is. When you were a kid, there were groups of kids who would playfully egg and shaving cream each other. The kids would come home at the end of the night COVERED in shaving cream and eggs. Yes there would be some TP in the trees or eggs on cars, but no one got hurt. This year, the kids up at the fields were younger than they have ever been and they were out of control!!! Throwing bricks at cars? Are you kidding me? Every last one of them should be locked up for what they did. They should all go to a detention hall for a few years while they learn how to read, write and respect other humans and their property! Look at the pictures of these kids, you cannot say it was at all the same. None of them even have a drop of shaving cream on their clothes. They were targeting innocent people, not each other. It was not all in good fun, it was vicious

      • Anthony

        I'm not justifying what the police did by not showing up, but you have to understand that there have been much worse Halloweens in the past. The only reason they aren't nearly as popular is because the serious damage happened during night and no one took pictures and posted them online. One year a cop car drove around in circles as it was pelted by hundreds of eggs. The next year several cops tried to break up a large group of 100 or so kids only to be pelted with eggs. They wound up arresting a few kids, but aside from a few arrests what could they do? The kids would not go home and continue to throw eggs. The next year after that, there was almost a full scale riot. There were about 7-8 or so squad cars near the bagel store with the same kids refusing to go home. They were overly aggressive trying to make a few arrests and a few of the kids fought back. About 30 kids got arrested that year and still to no avail. Just last year Matt (an 11 year old boy) got beat down to the curb and kicked for a crime he didn't commit. That almost brought a major legal case. It is for these reasons that the cops figure that less damage will be done by them not showing up and that by them going after the kids, they are only provoking them. I'm not justifying that mentality, but I do understand where they are coming from.

      Yes, that comment was uncalled for – and untrue. These are not the children of car stealing drug addicts, they are the children of professionals and business owners, city workers etc. Too many Mommies at work instead of being home raising their children. Replacing a proper upbringing with "stuff". Not a problem that just belongs to us, but to all of society. This is what happens when kids are raised by Nursery schools and babysitters and parents don't want to come home from work and dicipline their children. This is why schools can't do anything with them, they just don't have the self control and dicipline it takes to succeed.

        Well, you can thank the Reagan administration for that. This country was doing just fine with one parent at home and one at work. But this is a different conversation all together.

          I'm not saying that Moms should never work or have a life outside the home, but if your going to raise children at least be home for he first few years when they need to be taught the basic virtues for getting along in the world, respect, empathy, honesty, integrity. It isn't the blame on the Reagan administration or any other administration. People just aren't satisfied with enough anymore. They have to have 2 cars, a boat, a big vacation every year. And to satisfy their guilt at not being there for their kids they buy them everything that they ask for.

          • Raskolnikova

            I wasn't saying that moms shouldn't work either. (I am a full-time working mother.) Today, it is hard for parents to be there the first few years of a child's life because the needs for survival have significantly changed.

            Back in the 80s mom supplemented dad's pay by working part-time, therefore enabled them to increase their quality of life. The powers that be saw this as an opportunity and raised the bar. Now, both parents need to work to maintain the same level of comfort we did back in the 80s with only one parent working. You have to admit that you do see a difference between then and now.

            The Reagan administration introduced credit cards and it has been the beginning of our downfall ever since. Look at the selfish society we now live in. I agree with you on your point about parents buying things because they are guilty for not being around. It seems to be easier to throw an xbox at a kid than spend quality time with them when one is absolutely exhausted.

            It is truly unfortunate that this is the way things are and it needs to change. But this change will not happen with both parents overworked, tired, stressed and trying to keep their heads above water in this economy.

            I would be home with my child if I could, but I cannot. All I can do is discipline when needed, teach respect and tolerance, and ease my guilt by giving the attention that my child needs.

        No, this is what happens when people have children who shouldn't have children. I was a full-time working mom and raised a bright, respectful and decent human being. It is not the quantity of time spent with your children, it is the QUALITY time spent. Children need to be guided and taught right from wrong from the time they are small. It is our parental duty. You are doing your children a great disservice if you don't. Evidently the lack of parenting skills gets passed down from generation to generation as evidenced by the gross misbehavior of the young citizens of this community. What is is going to take for the parents of this community to take charge of their children? Perhaps someone getting severely hurt or worse? Maybe even to your own children while they're participating in their hijinks? Parents, wake up or one day you will be very sorry. I hope my spelling and grammar meets with your approval.

      • Alexa

        Disagreed entirely. My mother is an incredibly well-respected doctor and worked hard my entire life, and taught me the value of education and respecting humanity. Don’t blame this on “working moms” it makes you sound terribly out-dated.

        This is NOT what happens to kids raised by nannies and after-school programs. This is what happens to kids whose parents don’t talk to them on a HUMAN/adult level. That same argument was used in the early 1900’s for why women shouldn’t VOTE. These parents obviously can’t handle the rowdiness and have no idea what is happening on facebook/etc. There’s MANY outlets teens use nowadays that weren’t even IMAGINED when our parents were kids. Parents must adapt to what their kids are exposed to, and learn to talk with them earnestly and hear the teens out and enforce proper discipline.

    I am Not saying it is Wrong to Bomb each other with eggs and shaving cream!!! I did it when I was Young.. But The rocks and Potatoes That is a Little much!!! They were out for Trouble and I don't blame People for being Mad and Tired of it!! Having fun is one thing… Hurting others Is another!!! Look at the Big Picture before You Judge The Vollies or The Neighborhood people who want it Stopped!!!

    • grew up here too

      I don't know about anyone else but we only did it to ourselves we never bombed someone we did not know or anyone elses property. We never froze potatoes that in itself is intent to do harm. I wonder how any of them would feel if it was one of their family members that was attacked?

    "I hit a cop car wit an egg I'm proud of myself" – Maverick Johnson If Mavericks parents bought him a dirtbike to illegally ride and tear up the fields and I suppose supply gas money, why would it be a shock to them that he is so proud of hitting a cop car with eggs? Disrespect for the law is taught at home. Sure, as a kid we all loved going out with eggs and shaving cream, but it was to use on each other, not assault people and damage property. These kids somehow have the idea that this level of vandalism and lawlessness is their right. I imagine there will be alot of shocked parents reading this, but many shouldn't be too suprised. It is them who blurred lines between right and wrong.

          Growing up in Gerritsen Beach my parents would not let me go out on Halloween when I got older. While I was a good kid and never did anything to make them mistrust me, and it was unfair, they did it because they were PARENTS. Yes I was angry at the time, but my parents did it for my own good. You're right parents cannot be on top of their children all of the time. But on a Sunday that is a particularly violent day in GB the simple solution is to not let children older than 12 leave your home without you on Halloween.

  • Dianna

    After reading this article I find it funny on the question where is the police? For get the police where are the PARENTS? Why should the police come take charge of these kids, from what i know is that children have parents that should be responsible for them. Instead of police wasting there time with coming down there and what bringing them to the precent for there parents to pick them up is getting out of hand. Why don't these parents save the time for not just the police but as well as them selves and take control of there children. Every halloween in that neighborhood during the day is great for children trick or treating but when it comes to egging it goes over board. For the MTA not to be able to go in to the neighborhood is a shame as well.

    The only people that should be responsible and ashamed of themselves besides the kids are there parents!!!

      That's the same kind of mentality that prevented black people from gaining the right to vote until the year 1966. It's called generalizing and it's extremely ignorant

      • Point of Order

        Actually, the 15th Amendment, passed in 1870 (nearly 100 years earlier) granted all US citizens the right to vote regardless of race, color or previous condition of servitude. And women got the vote in 1920. There were attempts to prevent people from voting (poll taxes, etc) that were outlawed in 1964 with the passage of the 24th amendment but everyone had the right to vote before 1966 … just thought I'd fill you in — even though completely and totally off topic.

        That being said: that statement you're referring to is pretty small minded — so I agree with you on that.

    Dear Anonymous,

    This is Michaels Mom, YES I did let him go bombing like every other kid in GB! And YES I did tell him to have fun and watch oout for cops!This has been going on for yrs in GB. I allowed eggs and shaving cream. This DID NOT include rocks or potatoes! I am disgusted with this behavior myself and as soon as i heard what was going on I went and picked him up myself.

    As far as parenting goes, I am sure no parents knew the extent of what was happening until it was too late. My son is in deep trouble but I am also aware he was not the only one. Remember your calling a 15yr old a dumb ass, arent you an adult??? Kids do stupid things BUT DONT YOU DARE PICK ON MY SON AND START NAME CALLING! I DID NOT CONDONE THIS BEHAVIOR!!

Hopfully the police can use the info. from here to arrest him and any others they can and make there parents pay up.

      Shitty beachrat mom being a shitty beachrat mom. Who's surprised?

      • Gerritsen Beach Resi

        Actually, her comment was before he said he broke the bus stop. She obviously did NOT know that bombing consisted of that. I'm 25 years old and bombing, in my generation, consisted of throwing eggs and shaving cream at one another. Therefore, it isn't uncommon for those who are slightly older to have mistaken the change in lingo.

        Further, as soon as she heard about this incident she picked her kid up. She is in no way defending that her son did 'nothing' wrong. ACS? I think thats a bit extreme. Have any of you worked with ACS? Do you know what kind of cases they receive hourly? Crack babies, sexual abuse, neglect, physical torture of parents. Not breaking windows (although, that is wrong). ACS will take one good look at the Gueisponne family and realize that they are great people. Michael is a good kid, who did a ridiculously stupid thing and I am almost 100% positive that this will be a good eye opener and valuable lesson learned.

        Its also a shame for people to automatically blame the parent. Yes, some children live in homes where the parents do not care if their children are up to no good and there are those who still think their kids are 'perfect'. Iv'e always been taught that parents are there to instill in children values, morals, and proper ways of being with the HOPE that they will utilize these tools and apply them to life situations. Peer pressure, self esteem, 'acting cool', poor impulse control (because the frontal lobes of the male brain do not fully develop until the ripe old age of 18) and many other biological/environmental factors all come into play. This does NOT condone the behavior of the kids. This isn't an excuse either. Consequences are imperative. Demeaning the mother and family and creating outrageous accusations should not be part of Michael and the other kids' punishment.

        • Enough already

          If someone calls ACS on her, regardless if it is an "unfounded" report, they will visit twice a month for 60 days.

            I agree that calling or involving child services is way out of line. But the parents have actually been accusing the blogger of being a freakin’ pedophile for photographing their teens in public. Talk about the nuclear bomb of false allegations! Creepy, scummy, stupid parents.

      • I AGREE

        Of course there are many parents in Gerritsen Beach who are good parents but we have one of those shitty beachrat moms in the new section. 3 kids,different fathers,never been married ,living in a house she doesnt own due to the fact that the trash that was raised here will never leave as quoted by Anthony in his blog.I would bet money that she had relatives or friends up on the ave on Halloween.By the way the silver car that everyone is complaining about that is racing up and down and almost hitting children belongs to her son.NO SURPRISE THERE!! It is time for some action to be taken. The Halloween fiasco is just the tip of the iceberg! Parents like this have to be accountable. They are a plague on the community. ACS,POLICE DEPT.and any legal means necessary.Again,there are many good parents in this neighborhood. This is just a minority of shitty beachrat mothers. This one in particular ,that needs to be dealt with.

    • Anthony

      I know Michelle, and I know Michael, not personally, but from around the neighborhood; and I can personally assure you that they are not bad people. Yes, what Michael (as well as 100 other kids) did was bad, but that does not mean that he is a bad kid. Good kids sometimes do bad things. In Gerritsen Beach's case just about every kid in the neighborhood does bad things. It's not just the parents fault either. I'm not saying that the parents aren't at fault at all, but you have to see it from a parents point of view. Parents cannot beat their kids. They can only punish them. And the more a parent punishes their kid, the more the kid will rebel. The real problem with being a parent is that you can't control a child's will, and fear will only work to an extent. A child wants to do what a child wants to do, and a child always wants to be "cool." There is only so much power a parent has because if you are overly-strict now a days eventually they will rebel, and that rebellion can be even worse then giving them a little bit of freedom. It's easy to lack sympathy when you don't know where they are coming from. I'm not condoning Michael's actions, but please do not attack Michelle. Despite the impression that the facebook post may give you, she is not a bad parent, she is just in a difficult circumstance. She made a mistake, no one is perfect; and I'm sure she makes 5 good decisions for every bad one. She will learn from this event and become a better person for it, as should all of you.

    • Michelle,

      Egging cars, buildings, houses etc. is considered vandalism. Get a clue. Consider yourself lucky THIS TIME if your kid didn't get caught. Step up and be a parent and teach your kids right from wrong.

      Oh, and maybe you could teach him proper English too.

      I have questions about your parenting skill:

      1) Why let him participate in something when you need to warn him about police?

      2) Your son bragged about breaking a bus window BEFORE you warned him. Why not go get him then?

      Maybe you should take a class on parenting

      • Anonymous

        actually go look again she did not “warn him” before he posted that so before you get post happy make sure you have your facts straight please

    • ryan

      My son and his two friends threw 1 egg in the street and my neighbor saw them reported it to me. I had a stern talk with them and warned him that this was not appropriate behavior.

      There is no way I would ever knowingly allow my kid to go out to throw things at other people, vehicles and property.

      Furthermore, if this was to be a fun event where they threw eggs and shaving cream at each other I would be there to make sure it did not get out of control.

      Thirteen year olds cannot be left to do their own thing in a situation like this.

      Its funny how everyone automatically dismisses the grammar of these kids. Most of them can't spell or put a complete sentence together. Does anyone else find this ironic? Here we have people defending these kids, they aren't really bad kids, they just wanted to have fun. From the language and grammar, its clear that's ALL these kids do. If the parents aren't taking the time to make sure they're getting the most important thing…AN EDUCATION, then what makes you think they're concerned with any other facet of their lives?

    • Alexa

      LOL sure, go find a mugshot of me. Or my parents. Or my siblings. Or grandparents. OH WAIT- none of us have ever been arrested, and we’re a racial minority.

      This isn’t “gossip” it’s spreading awareness to something awful that happened. The kids were out of control, yes. Police didn’t respond. There’s no other way than to get it out in the open. He’s not posting anything malicious. It’s only illegal if it’s sexual in nature (gross, I know) or malicious in content. This wasn’t malicious, it’s merely REPORTING THE FACTS and photos sent in by people from the entire neighborhood.

      Read up on the law.

Once you put it out there it NEVER goes away I think this is another lesson your son should take from this.

          • feels bad

            If your son is out in public no consent is required to take pictures and post them. Being in public is just that, public. That being said I do feel bad for you. As a parent I to would feel embarrassed buy the whole affair, that being said the website is free to post any activities taking place in a public area. Also truth be told it was your sons own posting that labeled him as the person breaking things. not the pictures that we taken by the website. Note to parents check your kids social networking pages often and make sure they have the correct permissions applied

          • That's right – Photography is NOT a crime.

          • Fred MacMurry

            Sure, blame Mr. Daniel for the crimes your son committed. I'm sure it's easier that way. If anyone is to blame, it is your son himself and the way you teach him right from wrong. How is this correcting the situation you ask?? It is correcting the situation by making public exactly what goes on around here so the guilty parties can be HELD RESPONSIBLE for their cowardly and despicable actions.

Perhaps when you are all grown up and and not trying to pass yourself off as a responsible adult, your opinion or responses might be valid.

        It's apparent that she is NOT 'standing up for him'. She is admitting that he was 100% wrong. What I think she is saying is that having all of this information up and having people debate over the situation is doing nothing to rectify the situation.

        Likewise, 'People in glass houses SHOULD NOT throw stones'. As his mother I'm sure she is embarrassed, mortified and angered at what Michael did. He was raised better than that. I think it's pretty unnecessary for people to condemn her as the root of all evil because of ONE situation that her son did. It was wrong, completely wrong of him but how are your demoralizing comments making it any better?

        • Colleen

          Yes, she has admitted her son is guilty, but has she gone to the police or the MTA to really punish him and teach him a true lesson of life's rights and wrongs!! Give me a break, your son did wrong and should be punished for doing wrong, especially in the eyes of the law! If it was any of my children I would be the first person to bring him/her into the police station! My parents raised me better then this and I teach my own children the same.. if you do bad you will pay the consequences for whatever action seems appropriate. And to say he is "proud" is an insult to every Mom who is trying there hardest to raise children right from wrong, But, I'm sorry Michelle Guiseppone you should turn your own child in, before the cops find him anyway.

          • Outsider who doesn't want in

            Actually, *I* did that with my older son because it was all I could do to keep a roof over my kid’s heads, clothes on their backs and food in their bellies as a minority single parent. And his face wasn’t plastered all over the internet. And he didn’t plaster what he did wrong publicly all over facebook.

            My son learned a lesson the hard way when he was 12. Guess what? He’s a doctor now and his brother is a lawyer (who tells me if the police don’t take proper action, then there’s a chance the residents could file civil suits against the children and their parents with the police as accessories). How’s that for learning a lesson? Stand up for them and protect them long enough and the parents will be in a much worse situation than the kids are now.

            Get them on the right track NOW before it’s too late. Otherwise we all (as taxpayers) will be pay for them for the rest of their lives. Personally, I resent the hell out of that.

          • Anthony

            Who gives a shit what your son does with his life? You? So fucking what. As long as he’s happy living life the way he chooses. You taught your son nothing other than your own subjective perspective on what’s right and wrong (that you most likely inherited from your parents and society).

          • Anthony

            Instead of punishing your children and preaching “right and wrong,” what you should be teaching him is to develop his own sense of morality on his own and allow him to decide what’s right and wrong for himself, instead of telling him how to live life. Punishment only instills fear which later leads to rebellion. The only morality that it teaches results from it indirectly through suffering. Suffering often teaches sympathy for others who suffer. It’s hard to cause others to suffer when you feel sympathy for them. The only thing punishment teaches is consequences. As a parent it is not your job to “scare your children straight,” but to inspire them and teach them to have an open-mind and think for themselves. This is why it is illegal to beat your kids. You failed as a parent in teaching your son to be open-minded and have his own morals, and as a result you had to have him punished by the law. Despite being a doctor, your son probably has the same conceited, pompous, self-righteous morals (that you do), and as a result he probably looks down on other individuals who don’t have those same morals (just as you do), and he will probably try to teach his own children through the same methods of fear (as you have); Hence, the endless ring of stupidity continues.

    Not all GB teenagers were in this group Sunday.

    These young men and women act like animals, going after the weak and others who can't or will not retaliate against them. These are beach kids not outsiders and I am telling you if any of them hit my car with eggs, spuds or rocks next year I will press charges against one and all. Condoning this kind of behavior is unacceptable. If one kid goes out and kills someone are you going to tell yours to do the same but be careful and watch out for the cops. Teach your child to respect their elders, property private and public and show them how they can have fun without causing havoc. If their behavior is accepted this year goodness knows what we have to look forward to in 2011.

      Well I am getting sick and tired of the parents not taking responsibility for their GB kids, stop blaming "outsiders.

      The fact that these kids on facebook have a 5 year old’s grasp on written English is a sad, sad thing. Knowledge is power, and with knowledge comes wisdom, empathy, and compassion.

    I think posting thier facebook pages on the website definatley breaks some rules

      No It really Doesn't It is Public Domain!!! If They Did not want it read or reposted it should have been made Private!!!

        some were private, but bc they are facebook friends with gerritsen beach, gb took photos of the pages and reposted it here. not sure that is illegal, but im pretty sure there are rules about posting minors names in association with crimes

    The Parents are Getting mad at Danny for Posting This.. It Is On Face book Which is Public Domain And He was in Public Taking pictures which is not against the law either!!! If These Kids did nothing wrong By throwing Rocks and Potatoes and empty cans of shaving cream at car service and police.. Which yes i Did Witness.. I also witnessed the teens Telling a woman to walk away from the cop car so they could hit the cops!! You parents can say what you want but it is what it is.. A picture Can say alot and Their Facebook Pages just back up the Pictures..

      The Facebook pictures tell it all. Actions do speak louder than words and every picture tells a story. This is a sad story about the true character of these kids – including those who did not throw anything but stood on the sidelines laughing and mocking the victims. This will haunt them whether they realize it or not – its bad Karma!

By telling him to look out for the cops your not setting CLEAR rules for your child to follow… All your telling him is look out for cops.. What the F*ck does that mean to a kid…Don't get caught…Come on…Be A PARENT tell your kid he or she better not be out there on the AVE throwing EGG's at people and if you catch them there would be hell to pay and mean it… Now his mother and her very poor parenting skills will have to pay for being her son's friend and not the parent he really needs

            I have every right to question someone's parenting skills. As a parent I cannot imagine telling my kids to watch out for cops. What kind of message does that send your kids. Am I an angel well I've never been arrested or in trouble with the law and no I've never thrown eggs at people because my parents would have killed my if I embarrassed them like that. My parents were always there for me but they where not like my friends. Some parents now think there kids should be like their best friends thats wrong. So someones lack of parenting skills is my buisness when that kid hits my car with egg or the bus that MY kids are riding on with a F*ckin ROCK come on ….and you tell him watch out for the cops and you do it on facebook so all his friends can see how COOL his MOM is give me a break. Setting Rules for your kids isn't COOL so just make excuses when they get arrested or worse..Idiot Shut Up

            The reason she can't be a MOTHER and is acting more like a friend to the kid is because he is NOT her kid, she is only about 10 years older than him herself and has A LOT of growing up to do. Children raising children, what do you expect?

          Ms. G: STOP MAKING EXCUSES FOR HIM. He can read. He might not be able to write, but he can read. Instead of having your son make a PUBLIC APOLOGY to the neighborhood he and his friends terriorized, you get on these blogs and try to explain him. He will see this as you sticking up for him, and that's not what he needs. He needs to be told that what he did was criminal. He needs to be shown that you have respect for life, law and property. He should be punished, intensely, and after that, he should be made to work to repay the people he has caused damage to, including the MTA. I have not once seen an apology from your son. Why is that? You say you are a good parent, then why aren't you teaching him that his actions have consequences?

            Why are you all going after her? She said he was wrong!

G that already have… so all of you stop fighting like a bunch of children and come together as a community and come to a solution

          • mike

            I agree Mrs. G has come out admitted what took place and assured us it would addressed. Every parent will defend a child to an extent. Do I think her son acts in this manner 24/7 no not in the least, I say give her credit for coming on here and telling us she stepped up to the plate. Isn’t this the intent people have here anyway? To draw attention to what took place and have the issues dealt with? In my eyes she’s done that. I say we acknowledge that and understand she’s going to correct it and let her be.

          • Anonymous

            why? Because she still doesn't get it. Where is the PUBLIC APOLOGY from her SON either on FB or GB.net? The only thing we heard from her was an apology and then she went on to say that all kids do this. What is that teaching him? That Mommy will clean up HIS mess every time he gets into trouble. And he thanks her for sticking up for him. At 12 years old, why does he even have a FB account? Why isn't she monitoring his FB account. If she had, then maybe she could have taken him home and no one would be discussing her son in this venue.

Mommy handled her child..IF you knew her you would have know that but no you are just sitting here fighting.. He is not 12 btw that is besides the point.. and go look at the first stats.. "chilling in gb boming" she then replied to that right after saying becareful. did you see the time stamp 19 hours the next was 15 and that when he was picked up.. hmmm seems to me it was being monitored you are talking about something you do NOT know!!!

          Cops chase kids even if they throw eggs at each other. Me & my friends used to throw eggs at each other and the cops would chase us down all the time in the weeds. There were a few incidents where the cops would unjustifiably beat the kids, and this slowly lead to kids throwing eggs at cops and cop cars over the years. What she meant to say to her son to watch out for cops "throwing eggs at each other." The kids have only been throwing eggs at cops and cop cars for a few years now, and it has mostly been at night when parents went home and before these kids got big with facebook. Most parents knew their kids threw eggs, but they thought it was at eachother. They are just figuring out now that the kids were actually damaging property.


    As a retired "Halloween bomber" I don't see anything wrong with having a little fun on Halloween with eggs and shaving cream. But .. I do think that what these kids did this year was out of control. I also do think that the 61st slacked this year. You would think they would have had Gerritsen Beach under control like previous years. I remember when I used to go bombing there were years where they had GB locked down by 8pm. However, I do not think it is right that these kids Facebook page status and such are being posted. THEY ARE ALL MINORS ! Everyone in Gerritsen Beach knows what happens on Halloween. There is no need to embarrass the parents of these kids. Even if they're pages are not private and are open for the world to see. Like Ive said in previous posts, the "editor" of this "website" really needs to get a life instead of making other peoples lives miserable by embarrassing them. And for all of you parents, you should be worried too because there is a grown man out there taking PICTURES OF YOUR CHILDREN without your permission. god only knows whatelse he's doing with them other then posting them on this "website".. just saying.

        This is all Creepy and sad for GB. Why is he taking pictures of children? that is creepy. What is the law on posting a childs name or picture online? The Face book thing, ok, well that was on facebook. Did he cross the line by taking somehting from facebook and then putting it on this site? It's sad for outing all these kids, which sound to be absolute idiots. They were wrong and went overboard, but this info could have been printed out and given tot he PArents and Cops or somehting then set off a Vigilante Tirade from everyone on this site. I hope this does not go overboard and someone end up acting stupid. As for the cops, why shoul dthey get out of their car to then have things thrown at them. They are not targets and it is a great embarasment to all the police officers within GB at how all the disrespectd the cops, Public property and the older man who they hit. IT's nothing new, there is always a few idots. Still curious as to the laws on posting pictures of children or sneaking around a teking pictures of children.

          Alright genius, what's your solution besides murdering the English language? What's creepy and sad for this generation, not just GB that we have raised a generation of disrespectful morons who have a intense sense of entitlement and feel they should be able to do whatever they want without consequences.

          We have a generation of parents who have been neutered, they have had their rights taken away, any hint of abuse, real or imagined and they are locked up. I don't advocate beatings but a good kick in the ass never hurt anyone, we've taken away consequences because these little darlings know they can call child services if their parent piss them off and the parent will have everything taken away from them. Stop concerning yourself with these kids being made to face consequences because they broke the law in public and now are being called on it. You're a major jack ass and I hope someday you're on the other side of the abuse and I am sure you won't think it's so creepy when their photos show up, moron.

            This entire thread should be shut down to stop people from personally attacking each other and if this webiste feels it has any evidence and proof of crimes, he should bring that info to the loca lpolice department and let the authorities handle it.

      Halloween is supposed to be about little kids putting on costumes and going around the neighborhood trick-or-treating–not about some punk tweens/teens/twentysomethings terrorizing and terrifying people on the ONLY main thoroughfare into and out of the neighborhood. "Bombing" is sophomoric and says alot about the people who engage in it but I will concede that, in years' past, it was never dangerous and destructive–only disruptive.

      I'm not sure if you have children, yourself, UNKNOWN but, if you do, picture a three or four year old wearing his or her costume and carrying a trick-or-treating container walking on that avenue with eggs, potatoes, and shaving cream cans flying all around. The kids who are doing the throwing are minors, like you pointed out, but so are the OTHER kids who were actually out trying to have a safe good time! When did it become acceptable to interfere with other people who are staying away from the punks, trying to engage in normal, healthy Halloween activities?

      "There is no need to embarrass the parents of these kids."

      I think there's PLENTY of need for that! The parents of these kids knew damn well what they were going out to do and probably had an attitude like yours:

      "Everyone in Gerritsen Beach knows what happens on Halloween."

      I suppose we should be grateful that "what happens [in Gerritsen Beach] on Halloween" doesn't involve rape, murder, or burglary…or should everyone stay silent about that too because "Everyone in Gerritsen Beach knows what happens on Halloween."

      • UNKNOWN

        I do not have kids but I do have younger siblings who do go trick-or-treating. I do think its disgusting that the children have to see this but its been an ongoing thing every year in Gerritsen since I was a child. But unfortunately its something that's still gonna happen every year. Kids will always find a way to buy eggs, and they will always find a way to get shaving cream. I'm not saying what they're doing is right, because its not. Each generation of "bombers" just gets worse and worse every year. But there is no need for it to be post on a website like this. Writing an article is fine, but to take pictures is taking it way too far. And whether parents know what they're kids are did on Halloween or are finding it out a amateur website like this, its just not right. Majority of the time parents aren't aware that their kids are out on the Ave. bombing buses, cars, etc. When I was a tween my siblings and I and our friends used to ask our parents to buy us shaving cream so we can bomb each other, but really, we were right there on the Ave. by Victoria's Pizzeria with the rest of the kids in the beach bombing buses. Did my parents know? .. No they didn't. Ultimately, some parents do know what their kids are doing and some don't. But going on to these kids facebooks and posting their status and putting up pictures is just pathetic. I also like how the "editor" wasn't posting pictures of his brother and his brothers friends bombing a few years ago… just saying.

        • Gerritsen Girl

          Waaaa, waas yes post their picture on this website and every website you can, they need to be made accountable, the parents and police have failed us and this is what we are left to do.

          They were old enough to commit the crime, they're old enough to take responsibility for it. I have never bombed anyone with anything on Halloween or any other time. These little mongrels need to learn there are consequences, once they damage property and attack people, all bets are off. If they don't know then parents need to know, unfortunately there's very little they can do, parent's rights have been taken away with all this PC bull shit. Paste away I say, shame the little fuckers. Maybe they will think twice.

        • GBMom

          To Unknown:

          Let me start by saying that without having children of your own you may not be able to conjure the emotions to understand what it would have felt like if one of these animals hit your young child with an egg, a potato, a rock or a brick. Thank God this did not happen however with this animalistic behavior, i dont think it is far fetched. To attack a 60 year old man is barbaric. There are lines that should not be crossed and these teens crossed them. Shaving cream, eggs and TP is one thing, rocks, bricks & potatoes is another!!!

          Second, I feel that Dan did his job as a "reporter" and gave us the news. He identified the problem, gave the identities of the criminals and gave us a legible, emotion-filled story. I think his point was made & brought to the attention of many that this is an ongoing problem that needs a resolution. I may be wrong but if this was brought to the doors of the parents, I feel like nothing would have been done. The parents might "scold" and next Halloween it's the same or worse! Some parents might even brush it under the table b/c thats their friendly parenting style. Taking pictures is a way to catch the "not my child" parent's tongue. You have proof. As for the FB profiles, they're public and they outted themselves…foolish on the teens but smart for GB.net.

          I was a teenager once, and yes, I remember the mischief but this is beyond mischief…they were committing crimes!!

          • UNKNOWN

            Yes I completely agree with you but there is other ways he could have handled the situation. He could have stalked a little more and found out where they lived and at least mailed or placed pictures in the familys mailbox. By doing this he is not only creating more drama in Gerritsen Beach then there already is, hes creating more hate and conflict. I could completely understand if these were grown adults or people in the beach who are my age ( early 20's ) or if they committed a murder … but this is just nonsense. I'm sure the kids who "commited the crime" are looking at this website and seeing what people are saying. ie trash talking, cursing etc. These so called "adults" are not setting a good example. And for officers of the law to be commenting on this calling the kids racists names isn't setting a good example either. I think this whole site is gonna bring the neighborhood further down then it's already gone, and its not because of the kids who committed the crime, its because of the people who don't know how to mind they're business and worry about their own families. In a community people are supposed to come together and all this site is doing is bringing it further apart. Fortunately for me, I no longer live in Gerritsen Beach and I can give two shits what happens there anymore. But it is beyond me why something that goes on every year is now becoming a matter of topic. What about 4 years ago (my last year of egging) when a man who drives a truck who lived (or lives) in the beach pulled out a gun on all the kids in front of the pizzeria, when NOT A SINGLE EGG was thrown?! Where was Dan then? Where were the cops then? Oh wait i know why Dan wasn't there … his brother was out egging that year that's why he wasn't there. What about that same year when kids from the beach climbed on a moving car service car and started jumping on the windshield till it broke? Where was Dan then, to "show how terrible the kids in the beach are" ? What about when that same car service guy had eggs thrown at his face? Like I've said before .. it's something that's gonna happen every year whether parents approve of it or not. The only thing that could stop this nonsense that happens every Halloween is to have more police in the neighborhood collecting eggs and shaving cream as well as patrolling on Gerritsen Ave. But I'm not gonna sit here and say what parents should and should not do to punish they're children and I'm not gonna sit here and say that this should be sent to the cops. They're not my kids, they're not by brothers or sisters, or friends so its not my problem. And I don't think that anyone who's posted on this has reliezed that its not they're problem because it's not they're kids.

            I guess in your world it’s not a problem unless it happenes to you? Would you feel the same if it was your father or grandfather drivng that car service car? How about if your mother or sister got “bombed”?

            Yes, the police should take a more active role before someone takes the law into their own hands.

      Unknown, I think it’s your first sentence that says it all. “I don’t see anything wrong with having a little fun on Halloween with eggs and shaving cream.”

      Tell me, who was it fun for….the person throwing the eggs or the person receiving the eggs?

      It’s that mentality that is the crux of the problem. When a parent condones their children breaking the law using Halloween or 4th of July as an excuse for civil disobedience, it’s no wonder the children keep escalating to a point where they lose control. I have seen young teenage girls smothered with shaving cream and eggs walking in the streets. How could anyone on the receiving end of such abuse find it “fun”? Sure they may keep quiet, because they want to act cool and fit into that group, but no one could convince me they actually enjoyed it and that they didn’t feel degraded and abused.

      This kind of behavior needs to stop and children need to understand from their parents that breaking the law is breaking the law no matter if it’s stealing, driving drunk or throwing eggs at someone.

      Currently, schools are working very hard to deal with the problem of bullying. Not allowing your children to participate in this kind of civil disobedience masked as “Halloween fun” early in life can go a long way.

      • UNKNOWN

        Number one you are all acting like these kids are out stealing cars, doing drugs, committing murders, and they're not ! They're kids. What they do every year is not right and what they did this year to the buses or elderly def was not right but they should be held accountable by THEIR PARENTS and no one else. I don't know why everyone is so concerned about calling the police (who might i add, are no example setters for calling these kids "white trash" which is a racial slur) and having them deal with it. Honestly it's none of anyone's business except for the families of the children who went too far with the "bombing". Number two, "How could anyone on the receiving end of such abuse find it “fun”? Sure they may keep quiet, because they want to act cool and fit into that group, but no one could convince me they actually enjoyed it and that they didn’t feel degraded and abused." That's just B.S if they did not want to be filled of shaving cream they wouldn't be out with their friends. I could understand that statement be valid if someone was randomly attacked on any other day, but not on Halloween. Being egged on Halloween is not intended to be abuse or bullying. Its supposed to be fun. You people are taking this way too far. Worry about your own families problems and situations rather than another families problem. No one has the "perfect family" and why don't some of you "adults" think about what you did when you where younger. I'm sure none of you had halos over your head.

          No unknown, I think it’s you that’s missing the point.

          Have you been having fun on Halloween so long that you think the girls actually come out to get abuse? So the elderly man driving down the avenue wanted to get pelted with eggs too? How bout the bus drivers?

          I’m sure they asked for the opportunity to drive on Halloween night . Also the commuters who are waiting for a bus that night along the Avenue? Oh that’s right, they should know on Halloween they shouldn’t expect any bus service.

          You’re saying only the parents should hold their kids accountable? I can't imagine a parent who is holding their children accountable would also have children who would display such a blatant disregard for other people’s right to celebrate Halloween in their own way.

        Well Sir, I’d have to agree. It’s like, I HATE IT when people make fun of me. But Goddamn it’s so much fun to make fun of other people. That’s why if someone makes fun of me, I really “let them have it.” Why can’t people just let me make fun of them without making fun of me! If they didn’t make fun of me, maybe I wouldn’t have to be such a bully all the time! Like on Halloween this kid Patrick told me I was a “Homosapien.” Now, I’ll be honest… I don’t really know what that means. But it has the word “homo” in front of it so it can’t be anything good. So later that night, I snuck into Patrick’s house when his family was sleeping, and I SMOTHERED them all in their sleep!… with shaving cream of course. Then I robbed his dad’s bottle of Jack Daniels, his stereo and his mom’s car that I hot-wired and drove home drunk; only to get egged and run over a group of “trick-or-treaters.” Damn piece of shit “bombers”! They aren’t going anywhere in life!

    Okay there the picture of the kids on the web, now parents you see your kid in the picture, handle your freaking business!!!! some lady was killed in nostrand projects the night before, so egg throwing kids were the least of their problems, how about stop blaming the dam cops every year and you as parents start checking up on your kids, because you know what there out doing, half of you probably buy the eggs for your kids! you know where there going go see for your self what there up to being the problem gets worse every year, one day there going to throw eggs at the wrong person and wined up hurt, if you see your children in the group of kids throwing eggs there's your proof, and i don't think and child business should be posted all over this site, take it up with the parents on a private matter, remember they still are kids!

  • BK

    There can be NO expectation of privacy in a public place…Which means when your out in public anyone can take pictures of you. So if your stupid enough to do it in public your picture can be posted anywhere maybe you idiot parents should teach your kids that..Watch out for the cops I'm still laughing about that

  • Anonymous

    If I were in the car they jumped, you better believe the "kids" on my car would have been flattened in self defense. Thats right picture you son or daughter with his or her brain all over the street, or with mangled legs and blood all over the ground. Now picture yourself making a memorial for your little Irish or Italian darling (micheal ryan, jerry Denver, frankie denver, fred gavitt, samuel brady, jospeh gamberdella, scott lawson, maverik johntson, jack Edwards, matt cullen, keith cullen, john paplorado etc. etc.). Do the Irish or Italians who are so full of pride on St. Pats or Columbus Day not teach their kids anything? How about teaching your kids to respect elders, women with children, and property? America is in big trouble, can we put your kids back on the boat and ship them back to where you came from? The police didn't do anything because look how many kids were involved, if the parents of the neighborhood don't care why should they? Too bad a cop didn't fire one or two random shots into the weeds, maybe a bullet in the face of one or two little of your little darling lowlife “kids” would wake you up.

    • Anonymous

      I don't think this is about the nationality of the kids in question, if that were the case the entire neighborhood would have been out there. I must admit that I do think more of the blame should be focused on the parents than the police. This stuff has been going on for decades in the beach, in the past there seemed to be some sense of respect for those not involved. If you were out there doing these things you would limit it to other kids out doing the same not anyone passing by. In my opinion it all boils down to not knowing (or having) any boundaries.

      • Anonymous

        Irish and Italian grandparents who fought in wars to keep freedom alive on this planet would be disgusted to see their own kids failing to raise their children correctly, squandering the blessings they have and disgracing their country of origin and the American homeland. If we can't control our kids do you think this country will survive when they're in control? Nobody gives two shits about the shaving cream and eggs if they keep it to the weeds, but they didn't. They attack an elderly pedestrian, woman and children, threw potatos and rocks at moving vehicles, and bragged about challenging the cops (that they call pigs) – the respect is lost, the pride and honor is gone. America is in a sorry state. Yeah, I think its important to point out nationality, and to be embarrassed about it. Maybe someone will be emabarrassed enough to do something about it, Lord knows these ignorant bastards are probably the first to bring up race and nationality on other issues. Ain't it sad to see when your's is no better?

      Mind your own business, like seriously I don't understand why people can't do that in Gerritsen beach. So glad I don't live there anymore. Everyone in that neighborhood feeds off of others rises and demises.

    The mischief won't stop until a cop car comes down here, and one of these kids throws a rock, egg, potatoe, or a shaving cream can at a cop and the cop shoots them. Guess what… It will be 100% justified. All the cop has to say is they felt their life was threatened. Any of these parents think of that situation.

    Beautiful work, I hope the cops will actually do something with this information. Defacing public property and terrorizing people is cruel and a huge shame. Of course GB will protect their own, this was no harmless fun. To the mother who said "watch out for the cops" I'm pretty sure you would allow your son to smoke pot in the house so he wouldn't get arrested either right? you yuppies are all the same. I wish it was my area, I would've laid your kids on the ground for attempting to make my life hell. A little fun on halloween does not require doing what your kids did. It's disgusting. Thanks. GJ to GBNet.

        I am sure most of the kids involved with this debacle would be called "good Kids". And, I think, for the most part they probably are ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS!!! What parents need to realize is that teens (preteens, children) need to be TOLD that the behavior is unacceptable (how else do you learn?) and punished when they break rules. They (the parents)also need to realize when its a group/gang of kids they feed off each other….spurring each other on to become more and more daring and wild!

    hey everyone i know this kids my their whole lifes coach most them for many years and i know deep down in my heart there not bad kids and didnt think about what there doing. know most there parents to good hard working people. what these kids did was no doubt stupid and very dangerous and they should know better . am i disapoint yes i am but as someone who considers him self a commuinty leader arent i to blame also. we need to find away to educated this kids on the conquences of there action i believe there parents will handle it. maybe we need to orgainze something on halloween for this kids to do. as for ms GUSSIPONE I dont know her but am sure she not a bad person so give her a break i am sure she dont condone what her son did. as far as what this kids write in facebook most of it them trying to impress each and steching the truth alittle

    Next year the cops need to get rubber bullets, tasers and perhaps fire hoses and treat these mongrels like the low lifes they are, if we know who they are, how about we all go to their houses and toss eggs, hammers, rocks, etc…..? Oh but don't take pictures while it's happening because then it's illegal and creepy. Sounds crazy right, now you know how I feel!

          It doesn’t matter that you say that is what you would do because that is what a few people did and anyone who wrote that they had thier comments hidden because everyone checked don’t like so you see everyone here seems to be judge and jury. They went and got thier kids and they are all still being cruified by the neighborhood so it doesn’t matter if you say thats what you would do because that is what some did and you can see it doesn’t matter. Everyone is so quick to say well if that was my kid well that was someones kid and they did exactly what you said you would do and look at everyones response. As for it being an internet world yes it is but it doesn’t give people the right to put up peoples pics as for facebook being a public domain yes it is but there are also settings on it to keep you private not have to allow anyone to tag you in pics so its not really all that public.

    Since the youths are photographed and can be identified the police should come and arrest them for criminal mischief and MAKE the parents pay for damage to city property.

    ok im giving my full 2 cents now that im home, i think it is insane of these parents to complain about these pictures, and how naive they are to the law, lets make it simple, where you precious children naked? no. were the pictures taken through a window of your house? no, they were taken in public outside in broad day light, dont blame dan for your childs foolishness, if they had been taken pictures of while doing something great, you would be boasting and proud

    On some of the comments the parents put up here, "just because they are in the picture doesnt mean they did anything wrong" first off, majority of the kids in the pictures have eggs bricks or potatoes in their hands, and even if they didn't , ever here of the phrases, guilty by association , or accessory to ..? if they werent doing bad things they wouldnt have been with that group, plain and simple,

    And how bout the mother of 2 kids having the nerve to basically threaten danny and say shes stuck at work she wants them down by the time she comes home, what if you weren't at work? you gonna go beat him up? your such a great example, but heres a better one, take down the pictures of little liam and angel Matthew, im sure they are just being accused also, so why dont i quote them?

    Liam: "we fucked shit up"

    Matthew: "yo it was so funny when the bus driver got hit himself, i hit an NYPD car and others"

    What little angels, they don't deserve to be spoken about and have pictures taken of, Of course they do! what they really deserve is some jail time and for the parents to come out of pocket and fix what they broke, becasue quite frankly i don't need my tax dollars taken out of my check to fix thinks that these kids break for fun, but remember, its only "one day a year" so i shouldn't mind paying..

    how bout this parents, you post up your addresses, and when people come to your house and egg it, potato it, brick it, rock it, and can it, and your windows shatter and heavy damage is done, i want you to come on here and post how danny shouldn't of taken pictures of the culprit and you want them taken down, but before you do that, have someone come into your place of work and egg you right in the face. just like the bus driver, but you deserve yours, maybe even 2.

    and just one more,quoting a post: Like i said in another post PEER PRESSURE AND PUBERTY NOT BAD PARENTING … right, no need to say your kid was up there, way to teach them how to blame their wrongs on other things!

    and like one of the smart little 12 year olds posted on here, i have freedom of speech and can say whatever i want, so this stays and the pictures stay kid-O

    AHAHAHAHAHA. i know and grew up with EVERY SINGLE ONE of these kids. it's no surprise to see them throwing eggs and rocks at people, from my own personal experiences. and one of them did get arrested, i saw. it makes me sick to even think how they could throw rocks at PARENTS with kids. how could someone even consider that fun? it's ridiculous, and that's why i choose not to hang out with them.

    although i did notice there were a LOT less police around than earlier years, i don't blame them for being sick of all of the mischief – though it's still their job. they put up with even more dangerous situations, the least they can do is patrol the avenue at the very least. what these kids did was so dangerous, and there was no reinforcement. that's the only way they got away with it!

    i think people should stop blaming the parents though, kids are kids regardless of how they're raised. it's just nature. by this age kids have a mind, they aren't programmed by their parents to do what's right. i think that's impossible. kids will NEVER learn by being told not to do something, they will only learn from the consequences. that's how it always was, and always will be.

    I think the police should go and round up all those punks and arrest them for assault, destruction of both public and private property and the parents should be charged too. How can anyone pelt a man to the ground and think it funny. What a generation we have to look forward to.

      also menacing, disorderly conduct, harrassment, assualt- atmpt to cause bodily injury (weapon). the list can go on for days if the nypd wants to make a statement. which i think they are going to need to do for next year.

      Someone, a victim of a crime, (the older gentleman who was assaulted with rocks, the lady at the laundrymat, the bus driver) needs to go to the 61 Pct. and formally file a complaint report or nothing will get done. Unless the community as a whole puts pressure on the Police and demand a town hall style meeting with local representatives and the 61 Pct. commander and DEMAND an investigation. Then, and only then, maybe we will have some arrests and convictions on any guilty parties involved in the despicable events that unfolded on Halloween.

    this guy danny Cavanaugh is crazy for putting these pictures up without parental consent or the permission of the child he will probablly be sued

      Because the economy was booming before Obama got elected right? Idiot. The economy was on downfall before Obama. Don't try to the find a scapegoat to blame if you don't even know how the government works. Obama cannot do anything by himself, it's a democracy, you can't blame the President. Every single representative and senator is responsible since they are the ones who vote for laws and bills. Not Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan, Carter, Washington, Lincoln, etc. So stop pulling out your fake political bullshit.

      You're probably one of those dumb tea-partiers who can't even answer political questions except, "we need morality! conservative! religion!" Absolutely no poltical backup or knowledge. Just opinions like the other idiots.

  • Daniel

    To the parents defending these kids, how about this. If your kid is dumb enough to throw eggs at a car that almost swerves and hits my wife, I'll seek my own justice and not only hold your little punk kid accountable, but also you. What if that car killed the mother of my ten month old son? Seriously, you people disgust me and it sounds like some of you pour excuses for parents need a dose of reality. You think it's good fun? Get a clue.

    • Anthony

      Good point, but something that extreme isn't likely. Although possible, something like that is far from likely. That's like saying, "Well, you shouldn't cross the street because you might get hit by a car." For one, if someone's car were to get hit by an egg/eggs, they'd probably just hit the breaks. Second off, in order for a circumstance that extreme to happen, the person would have be completely caught by surprise. If you're driving your car down Gerritsen Avenue on Halloween, you would have to be living under a rock to not think that you just might get hit by some eggs.

  • Vicki G.

    These kids should be sent to juvenile and their parents should pay summons and follow up with restrictions.

    The kids are absolutely atrocious. The parents are irresponsible. Giving excuses like "but they're teenagers" are not good enough. These kids crossed the line by challenging the law, hurting elders and innocent civilians on the street. These are all public violations to an extreme. Having fun is one thing, being retards and hurting innocent people is another thing.

    I've never seen such stupid kids. Having fun by throwing rocks? It's 2010 guys, we have technology and beautiful places to go to where we can enjoy ourselves.

    "Hey johnny look I threw a rock at a bus!"

    "Oh my gosh, that's so cool, let me grow egg an old guy and throw rocks at him since I don't know any better!"

    I bet they probably still draw on their walls with crayons and suck their thumbs at night.

    You have got to be kidding me if they are innocent with absolutely no punishment. They should be taught how to be moral, good people by the police since "Halloween 2010!" shows they weren't taught that in their households.

    And this is coming from an 18 year old, I was actually taught by my parents to know better and see the whole picture in life.

He has every right to publish their photos as they are public domain, if you don't want it out there, don't put it on the internet morons.

  • DamnMad

    As a private investigator, I find it funny that these kids facebook pages are here with their full names. I find it even funnier that these kids admit to all they did, all day, terrorizing people in their OWN neighborhood. HUGE sense of pride in where they live. Shaving cream, eggs on buses, hell EYE did that as a kid. No big deal.

    Potatoes? Rocks? Bottles, at people, at kids, causing harm?…not cool.

    The ultimate gratification will be when a few people decide to look up these people's addresses…throw a few potatoes through their parents' windows and cars in the dead of winter, along with a note saying it's all in good fun, don't be upset/

    Maybe then the Trailer Trash will give a damn about what their kids are doing, instead of hanging out at the Tamaqua getting bombed themselves…

Too fucking bad, because it isn't going to end until some miraculous plague sweeps through GB and exterminates you and your white trash families. Throwing bricks and eggs are people= NOT COOL, neither is causing cars to go out of control and almost hit other people. You are a d-d-d-ouche, and so are the other little shits involved in this and their crappy parents. Get out of here.

        Honestly you need to stop. Cause right now you're cursing out a little girl. How do you look making a big deal about this, completely blowing it out of proportion? I lived in GB my whole life I know majority of those kids. You’re completely exaggerating in your story because half of it never even happened, yes they were a little out of control but you can't say you've never done anything crazy in your life. You’re acting like a child worse then any of them who were involved. No ones dead or in the hospital so let it be and hope for a better Halloween next year. I’m not saying its right because its not but you're wrong as well, putting pictures of these kids on the internet without their or their parents consent. If you want too call anyone Gerritsen Beach trash it should be yourself because I bet you’re no better then anyone.

          Suck my ass bitch, I'm the best. I was in the shit and I know these kids. Everybody thinks they're innocent but they don't know ANYTHING and it's hilarious, and definitely not any different than it is now. I've never thrown a rock or hurled anything hard at someone, or damaged any property, because my parents would have beat my ass. But let's be real for a second, GB is famous for its white trash, it has been for decades and decades.

          GUESS WHAT? IF THEY DIDN'T DO IT, THEY WOULDN'T HAVE PICS UP! HAHA! Little shits, too bad their mothers are probably too lenient or delusional like you are and believe that their kids could do no wrong when they're actually some of the biggest assholes in Brooklyn.

      Actually, no, I didn't act like a moron when I was a kid. It never crossed my mind to hurl rocks at strangers or put others in harm's way. And my grandmother lived through the Great Depression and taught me that it is a sin to waste food, so you would not have found me throwing eggs either.

      I was almost in a wreck because of these kids. If I was hurt or killed, would you pay my bills, raise my son? Or is that 'whiny pussy' behavior too?

  • anonymous1

    I do NOT agree one bit with what went on… but I am wondering if any of the parents that had their kids pictures posted and are under 13 years of age are upset that their kids photos are on this website since parents have a right to control information about there children, and people other than parents do not have legal authority to post photos of children under the age of 13. Sorry but I believe these kids should get in trouble but I am sorry I don't believe posting their photos with access to there names was the best thing. Maybe complaints should have been filed against them at the pct

      So parents have a right to control the information about their children — what about the duty they have to control their children, period? If they had actually engaged in their duty to the community to act as responsible parents, they wouldn't have to exercise the right to control information on the internet about their children. This is just photographic evidence of negligent parenting and a community in a tailspin — the offense should be to the community, not the parents.

    Hello GB,

    Stop justifying the behavior of your little angels. Kick them as hard as you can in the ass, and let them know how wrong and despicable this really is.

    It is now after the fact and your little pumpkins are still making comments that show they have NOT learned a damn thing from you parents or this whole situation. If it were my child, they would not still be using a computer or the internet.

    Disgusting, trailer trash BS. Gives a real bad name to the whole neighborhood and the decent people that live in it.

    I have to repeat myself again, kick that little F%$# in the ass and let him know what is right from wrong.

    Your kids are cold busted, photos, bragging, etc. Get over it and teach them, it is not ok to cause damage to personal property. You may even want to explain to them that it is your tax dollars that pay for that, but then again it is probably not your money, because you don't work.

These kids are too stupid to know about Privacy Settings. These are the pictures of a new gang in town, they are called the "NOT MY KIDS" gang. All the children of the delusional parents in Gerritsen Beach. Yes they were our kids, I saw them. Didn't stop to read all the posts above but if your child came home last night soaking wet, they were also involved in a freaking riot last night. They also opened up the car of the Chief of the Vollies and egged his car in the inside! They then got hosed down by the fire trucks. Maybe with any luck, they'll get sick. And the 61st Precienct, I know you read this website too!!! You should be ashamed of yourselves. This is why you are made fun of and called the country club. You don't want to do your job. You actually told somebody calling you that you weren't responding? Are you f'ing kidding me!!! Go to the new Dunkin Donuts on Knapp Street, I'll buy you some donuts.

    The pictures are there and I am sure that most of the parents know what their little darlings did to their neighbors and their community.

    The ball is in the parent's court. The parents should round their little angels up, take them to the precinct and then get together and pay for the damages and apologize to their neighbors.

    The little angels should be forced to clean the streets of "thier" neighborhood until next Halloween and their parents should pay the city and the community for their spawn's damage.

    As for the parents coming on this site and defending their spawn – just apologize to your neighbors/community for the behavior and begin responsible parenting. Instead of taking responsiblity – you complain that someone took pictures of your kid committing a crime. WTF?

    As my mother said over and over, "if all the kids jumped off the roof, would you?"

    • Anonymous Counter

      Wonderful, fantastic, and well-written point.

      However, I'm afraid I'll have to point out that it's somewhat unrealistic.

      I'm a teenager, right? But I try to look at things from another person's perspective. If you've spent your entire life raising a child (not very well, apparently [not you, silly goose, but some of the people in this community]) would you want to take them to the precinct, get them arrested (or something, I don't know what happens. Never been in that situation), and then force them to do work? Not only would that waste gas money (my Dad goes off about it all the time… ~_~), it'd also waste time, and effort. The idea would be "oh, just don't get caught". Who's going to stop the kids from covering their faces with masks? Geez.

      Blah, maybe if this was a utopia, such a fantasy could exist in reality.

      "If all the kids jumped off the roof, would you?"

      Why the fuck would I be on the roof in the first place?

      How did I get on the roof?

      Who's on the roof with me?

      Very important questions, dear.

        The assertion that the author is "stalking" or engaging in some perverse action by viewing and reproducing public Facebook profiles is patently false. Facebook has (quite recently) gone to some extent to educate users on their privacy policies and settings, and the subject has been covered extensively by the media.

        Setting one's wall posts to be visible to friends-only is trivial, and the failure to do so is effectively an overt, contrary action. That is to say, these kids are happily and proudly broadcasting their Facebook posts to the world.

        As others have commented here, the most important takeaway is preservation of information in a digital age. This stuff lasts a long, long time. Even if this post was deleted today, it'll show up in search results for many years to come.

        Colleges Google their applicants, businesses too. I work for a professional organization, and I can assure you the first thing we do after skimming a resume is a web search. If there's any trouble, we don't want you. Simple as that.

        Bottom line is, if these kids want to be more than dropouts with crappy retail jobs, they are going to need to transform their lives in big ways. Good luck!

    I still can't believe this is what Gerritsen Beach became. They sneak beers and drugs behind the parents back, do things like this behind the parents back, and act repulsive as to pulling down their pants and ruining the human language. I swear, they can't go without cursing for 5 minutes.

    PARENTS: Yes, I feel bad for you. I realize you thought it was just gonna be another year of egging and shaving creaming, but you should never leave the child unsupervised for so many hours on Halloween! You should have at least called. Since the children are minors, I hope you know you will probably pay the price, of embarrassment and money.

    You will be looked down upon in the community until this whole situation clears up. If I was you, I would make those children get the money for the damages themselves and take away all electronics! Lock the windows and keep a camera in that room, these kids are shameful.

    I swear, if they were my kid I would disown them for the time being. This is repulsive.

    Here is a fact guys, whether you like it or not. Danny has the BALLS to post all of this while nobody else would. Too bad there are kids names all over the place and pictures. We need to take care of our neighborhood and that means clean up after our own mess. Right now our own mess is our children. If these kids are getting off on throwing things on to Gerritsen Avenue to cause accidents and break bus windows, what does their future hold? They are getting off on harming people and causing accidents. They think this is funny. It is no longer, you egg me and I egg you, you put shaving cream all over me and I do you. It has graduated to bigger and better things. THIS IS A WAKE UP CALL. What comes to my mind is a similar incident in Long Island. It was called MURDER my friends. Kids got off on throwing a turkey on the parkway and killed a women. Another fact is that I see a lot of these kids on the pictures and they are from good families. You know what else should happen, we should take this one step further. If you see somebody on here that you know, you should mention it to their parents. A simple conversation will do. Hey you know what so and so, you kid is posted on Facebook and not in a good way. It is possible that a parent does not know about this. Let them know that you saw it and so did many others. I know the Denver Family for a long time, while they were boys horsing around and probably did many things with eggs and shaving cream, I am almost 100% sure destruction was not in their nature. By nature they are do gooders and are probably very pissed off about their children right now. Good job Danny.

    • trainman

      I agree with you 100% Annon!
      Due to the seriousness of this matter I think this incident should have been exposed in the manner that it was. I would like to go one step further and suggests to Daniel of GB.net to publish this incident again next year a few days before Halloween to remind all the parents of these teenaged children that were involved in this mess this year to keep a watchful eye. Perhaps we can have a moratorium on egg throwing for one year and see what happens.
      We'll see if these parents really control their kids or is it the other way around?

    Parents that want to put this to bed……

    Have your little angels publicly apologize on FB. Maybe even on this website as well. Show the community that your child is truly sorry for what they did and that they have realized this makes YOU the parents look bad. The whole community look bad and that they would not make the same choice in the future.

    I agree, kids make stupid choices, however, I have not seen one child or parent come forward and say, I AM SORRY FOR MY CHILD'S REDICULOUS BEHAVIOUR AND WE ARE TRULY BETTER PEOPLE THAN WHAT HAS BEEN OBSERVED BY THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY…


    If it were me, and I had no intentions of moving out of the neighborhood, I would prove that we are truly sorry and apologize. OR, you can just continue to be labeled as trash for the duration of your occupancy in GB.

    The profiles that were copied and pasted are private Facebook profiles. These kids were friends with Danny and he used it to copy and paste the information for everyone to see. That is not right I would not want anyone to copy my private Facebook profile and messages and repost then for their agenda without getting permission from me… Why would you copy and paste a young teens private profile? The only reason why you had access to their profile was because you are friends with them on Facebook. Does anyone else see a problem with this or just me?

    • come on

      They were public not private, I’m sure a lot of kids skated on this because they were marked private (and dan’s friends) and the info could not be posted.

      Everyone is jumping all over the fact that pics were taken and FB status was copied. If Dan was in a car, bush, birds nest or dumpster the fact remains that every single picture and every single Facebook copy was done in a public venue. So please stop with the privacy BS and all the stupid pedophile comments.

      The fact is simply put what takes place in public regardless of how its captured Visible, Stealth or otherwise is perfectly legal. If you have a problem with that then go change the laws and your kids privacy settings.

      I also don’t understand why everyone is so “Surprised” he had pictures of kids doing the same thing last year. Why does it come as a shock now? Perhaps because people fed up with what was taking place started dropping names? What if news 12 was here and video taped the kids throwing eggs (and im sure they would have been pelted themselves) and played it all week for everyone to see. Would you be irate screaming invasion of privacy? If it’s the media a blogger, a facebooker or someone taking pictures and taping them to the street signs it doesn’t matter. What takes place in public if you are 70 or 7 is still public and is subjected to public display.

      Would I be happy if my kids pictures were posted, of course not who needs the embarrassment, but you can be dam sure my kids would suffer and next year my kids would be under a microscope. And I would also like to point out that condemning every kid pictured as doing the same offense is wrong. But when you have kids holding other items (not eggs) or outing themselves on FB then how can you really debate the issue. I’m sure most of them are “good kids” and I would even agree to a bit of the mob mentality, but when you purchase potatoes, boil or freeze eggs then its obvious you set out to do greater harm then the usual egging. Growing up I absolutely went bombing and truth be told a bus was often a target.

      You knew they driver was just going to keep going, but we had drivers hit (not the bus) as well as residents and not even in a manner they could defend themselves in. 2 or 3 eggs thrown at you its something you can handle, a firing squad. Well that’s another issue entirely. I think the info is out, and the kids parents are well aware of what’s taken place by now. Let the parents do what they need to and lets move on. The point has been made that a large number of residents are disappointed at what’s transpired. Now its out and im sure everyone is going to be on their toes come next year. Ripping apart parents especially ones who acknowledge what their kids have done serves no purpose. I cant think of a single parent out here who couldn’t be chastised for something they or their children have done.

      Lets also remember that we have idiots outside of GB posting just to provoke. Please feel free to comment on any grammatical mistakes ive made.

    • parent

      sorry to disagree but I went to some of the profiles and I am not friends with any of them or their parents and I saw their posts/comments. So they weren't initially private, they were public and being such ANYONE can view, copy etc what they had there. Notice I said HAD because a few of them have since made the profiles private. As for Dan taking pictures of them, one of the idiots actually HAD the pictures posted on his wall.
      I applaud Dan for putting it all out there for ALL to see. Many of the comments here say he shouldn't because they are kids. That's all b.s. IMHO because the fact is they went WAY beyond "having fun" they put other people in danger throwing ROCKS/POTATOES/HAMMER(s), at moving vehicles. Fact is that those rocks/potatoes/hammers became projectiles rendering them weapons.
      I'd like to ask all the people who are totally MISSING the point what THEY would have done had THEY been in a moving car WITH children, or walking with their children and someone WAS injured? I seriously doubt you'd be saying their profiles/pix shouldn't be put up on a site, you'd want justice, you'd want to see that they were HELD ACCOUNTABLE AND RESPONSIBLE for their actions. And don't say you wouldn't want that. you would and you know it.
      The added insult to the injury is the fact that these punks bragged about it and laughed in the face of authority and common decency.
      There is right and there is wrong and they the punks KNOW the difference they just don't care.
      Back in my day growing up we were taught NOT to do something you didn't want to see on the news or in the paper. Now, it's a status symbol and it's a really sad state we're in because this is the future of our country? We're screwed and if you don't think so then you have some issues as well.

It takes a lot of courage , in a small neighborhood to have done it. Fun is one thing, attacks on innocent passersby are something else .I congratulate the N.Y.P.D. for NOT showing up so you can all see what a mob/riot mentality ,can do to your neighborhood….My only question to all of you is… WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT ?

    When my kids were younger they were no angels, but if someone came to me with pictures of them defiling public property, or terrorizing people I would have apologized profusely for their behavior and then BEAT THEIR ASSES!! They would have to work around the house to earn the money I would have to pay out for any damages AND they wouldn't see the light of day for weeks!! For all those parents of the children involved…SHAME ON YOU!! Yes it was Halloween, and everyone wanted to have a good time, but put the alcohol down for a few minutes, take a walk up to the avenue and check to see what your kids are up to. If just 1 parent had walked up to the Avenue to check on their little angels this probably would have been nipped in the bud.

    Daddy/Danny whoever you want to call yourself. You can curse like a truck driver "shut the fuck up" and hit "like" on your own comment, then hide my comment because it's the truth. And no it wasn't a threat it was a promise. Whether it's legal or NOT it's not right to post 12 year olds pics/names/info on this site, it doesn't make it right. My kids are grown and were taught well, so don't make assumptions. Also there were kids from out of the neighborhood in GB that night too, but for some reason innocent kids like Denver, Guissepone, Maverick etc.. are getting the blame for things others had done. Of course it's wrong for what happened but it definitely shouldn't be up to Dan or anyone to pinpoint who the kids were who are responsible. There were 50+ kids there, about 6 of them were doing things that were totally unacceptable. The thing is these innocent kids shouldn't get blamed for their peers mistakes. Adults posting things like STFU should try to get together and get things resolved. How about asking the bars/stores on the ave. for surveillance camera tapes this way you can pinpoint who REALLY did it, instead of posting pics and FB walls (which are only talk no action/proof) of the INNOCENT.

    • huh

      Let me get this straight, you don’t want the pictures posted but your ok with surveillance cameras. See something wrong with that statement??? And the kid with the potato, He INNOCENT???????????? or do you need to see that on video to be sure??. I do however agree with you that is foolish to assume all the kids seen are guilty, they are not. Mr Potato Head excluded

      • haha

        the kid with the potato is freddie gavitt, look at the parents… that should explain things and the rest of them are not innocent just cause they're good kids doesn't mean they weren't with their friends doing this. Believe it or not good kids are usually bad kids that don't get caught. Then there are the ones who are genuinely good kids but those are the ones who wouldn't be stupid enough to write all over fb trying to look cool even if they didn't do it.

    • Waiting and Laughing

      Dude, go lock yourself in the bathroom for a week. It will help you become adjusted to your new living quarters in a few years. I know you’re probably scratching your head trying to figure out what I mean.

      Let me tell you what you will win, first you make a visit to a wonderful place called Central Booking. From there you get an all expense paid (tax payer paid) trip to a beautiful island called Rikers. While on the island you will spend a majority of your day in the lap of luxury with Oceanside views and an atmosphere few dare dream of.

      Watching your roommate urinate is a main attraction on this island. Of course 3 square meals a day are supplied and dining is held in the Main dining area, complete with metal trays, bolted down chairs and shanks by the dozen. One thing most attendees rage about is the diverse assortment of fellow islanders. You will find most like to travel in clicks (murderers, rapist, racist and to many types of felons to count). Activities available include but are not limited to Beatings, Stabbings, Bludgeoning’s and array of devious activities.

      But most of all the crème de la crème, the absolute icing on the cake is the Night Life. Most activities are held in secret and against your will so we can’t reveal them here. And if you are curious how I came about this info, I picked up one of the brochures one of your buddies dropped.

      Oh and I know your either to smart to get caught or to tough for anyone to bother you right? Yeah you and 100% of the islands population.

  • Old Section

    Mostly everybody who grew up in the beach through out the years did something on Halloween. Being that I live in the beach now since the 70's there was always stuff going on. Our Halloweens consisted of egging and shaving cream each other; it was either the old section going against the old section or it was the old section vs the new section on the weeds side of Gerritsen Ave. We didn't target old people or young children especially mothers with strollers. We did target city bus's but the bus drivers had there own revenge back then by not allowing us on bus to go home from school for the following week; so you learned to either not throw stuff at the bus or if you did make sure you couldn't be scene. We didn't throw stuff at cars passing buy. I will say the older crowd would get rowdy at night and start bombing the Deli's at night because they refused to sell beer and eggs to the kids. But we all knew who those individuals are and where they currently are now.

    To watch the youth leave comments that they are entitled to a day of fun is a complete crock. You want to have fun have an egg war by cherry hill like we did in the past. Leave the parents and kids alone on the avenue. If I was caught by family friends doing what you did I would of been dragged home to my parents where I would have a beating waiting for me. If I was part of a crowd that egged a mother with a baby stroller or egged and old man I would of been found guilty due to guilty by association and i would of been beaten regardless if I threw an egg or not.

    The problem with Gerritsen Beach is nobody wants to take responsibility for there kids and pass the blame. I can tell you right now my parents would of had me up at the 61st PCT with a bucket, soap and rags and had me washing all the RMP's as they returned back from there Tour if I was found in the photo's.

    To the Parents and kids that are on this site bashing Danny your only pissed at him because you been caught. How much easier it is to pass the blame off on somebody else then to face the reality of what you are doing.

    Call him what you want he in one of the few in the Beach that is trying to make this place better. Granted some disapprove of his methods but none the less he is trying; the main question is what are you and your family doing to make GB better for everyone else and that even includes myself.

    The parents of these little "Beach rats" should be ashamed of themselves. I was no angel growing up but I never targeted parents, small children or the elderly.

    Even worse I saw a couple of these punks walking around today. Nevermind actually doing any of the previously actions if I was even dumb enough hang around while my other people were doing this, I'd would still be getting a beating. Parents you've failed your children. Instead of attacking people for bringing your attention to your childrens wrong doings, maybe you should redirect some of that anger and beat your kids ass.

    So now that Halloween is over lets think about the future. What is this community going to do for these kids to keep them off the streets and to help them understand that this is there community and they need to respect it. Im sure they know what they did was wrong but its in the past. Lets help these kids in the future. Danny you are wrong for allowing it to go this far. You should have put a stop to it sooner. This is why so many people have a problem with your web site. You only show the bad side of the kids. I have never see you at any sporting events cheering on these kids. These are good kids and im sure after all your posting the parents are taking care of it at home.

    • huh

      Perhaps you should show up to some of the sporting events or at least please look around, Danny is always there. Hell most of the pics are posted on the site. The problem is the kids assume in numbers they are untouchable, and honestly what are most of the parents doing. The bus shelters are broken weekly. This is GB somebody always knows who did it. What happens though its always hush hush. There is an old saying it takes a village to raise a child and that is true, what you are witnessing here is the villagers driving home the point and putting on the pressure. Do I have a big issue with eggs and shaving cream, not really. As I kid I did my share of Halloween events, and if the kids were in the fields running commando on themselves id say more power to them, this wouldn’t even be an issue here and we would all be debating over the hero stores prices. The problem is a few disturbed individuals took it to a new level. Now the guilty and not so guilty are being taken to the mat. The kids all say its just fun, one day a year, you did it. You are correct we did. But we did it to each other. One day a year does not grant you permission to destroy and cause bodily harm on people. What’s next shall we all go “wilding” on the anniversary of OJ’s not guilty verdict (hey its only one day). One day a year for egging your friends is fine by me. If you are just looking for a day to do whatever you want without any repercussions then you are sadly mistaken

        Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize that you (Meh, there should be a way to put things in italics on this site. The you would be in italics. Yeah.) were a kid, and that you knew what kids assumed. Unless, of course, you went up to a kid and went "Hey, do you think you're untouchable in numbers?" and he replied in the positive. But otherwise, please don't talk about things you know nothing about?

        They don't do it because they think they're untouchable, or whatever. They do it because it's fun. Oh, right, and then you can go to your friends and brag about what you did. Bus shelters are broken weekly..? I'm sorry, but are you exaggerating? I take the bus every morning, and my shelter's window is just as good as it was a week ago. Hell, it's been untouched since they made all the new ones. And it's not as if the parents are telling their kids to go out and do this. They do it on their own (why am I saying they..? Bah, maybe I just don't consider myself part of the teenage clique in Gerritsen. Sometimes it's a good thing to have no friends, I suppose… > ~>).

        If we did it on OJ's not guilty verdict, that'd be two days a year.

        And with the egging your friends part, I'd have to point out (in support of your statement) that not a single kid (well, maybe one) has one egg stain or is shaving cream-covered.

    So now that Halloween is over lets think about the future. What is this community going to do for these kids to keep them off the streets and to help them understand that this is there community and they need to respect it.

      that should be taught at home, not by the community!

      What goes in in the middle of the streets that's so bad you need to keep kids off of it? o ~e Besides getting hits by cars.

      But I know what you're trying to say. Still, what're you gonna do? Make it illegal for kids to go outside?

      The community does not have to teach your children how to behave. YOU DO!

    first of all no one threw any rocks at the old man, no one threw a hammer, and no one threw bricks all of u pple are fuckin retarded. john zapp wasnt hit in the face with an egg he was hit in the shoulder. its fucked up that you guys put pictures up, you act like you never did anything as a teenager. were coming after you next joel garson and all ur photographers

    • Annon

      Wow, You're an idiot. Joel Garson has nothing to do with the Photographer. Stop making idle threats or I'll look up your IP address, give it to the 61 Internet Police and have you arrested for threatening somebody.


    You wake the fuck up and realize that kids say things to make themselves look "cool". Learn how to read you dumb Fuck. What I wrote was not EVERY kid there was guilty. Some were of course, but nobody should point fingers and shout names out to people who had nothing to do with it. If u had any common sense you would know that kids exaggerate and say they did things that they didn't! They also say they're gonna do things and don't! Psychology 101 asshole! Stop pointing your finger and shut the fuck up til u know the facts. When I see on camera that Maverick, Denver, & guiseppone actually did something, I'll believe it! But until then keep ur finger pointing to yourselves! U don't see an old man or mother getting egged in the photos DO YOU?! If so, did u see any of these 3 throwing it? NO Ok then, if there were such proof 61 would get involved. When u find out names of kids who did it let us know, until then SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH and don't curse at me cause YOU don't even know me… and u won't get it back at you.. Treat others as u want to be treated, didn't your parents teach u that? Also, try searching sheepshead bay & marine park for a couple of the kids who did this… Maybe you'll find someone to blame. GB is the best community in Bklyn so stop hating!
    Just keep your kids out & we'll be fine. Everyone knows everyone in GB we have never and would never harm eachother. If everyone in GB looks at the group pics they wouldn't recognize more than 3/4 of them. U know y? They're NOT from GB!!! Hellllloooooooooooo

      I live in Gerritsen Beach, used to play baseball with these kids, my brother is friends with someone of them.

      HAHAHA 3/4 of them? Last time i checked, thats the MAJORITY. And you've made a very good point. Treat others as you want to be treated. Apparently the parents of these kids forgot that lesson!!!

    You all need to stop fighting with each other and do something about it!! Cursing at each other and the kids…just what is that solving??? ALL of you want something done about this. Sitting on here and causing more uproar. what's this accomplishing? it's not going to solve anything faster. WE ALL UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED, WANT IT CORRECTED AND SOLVED!!! I myself have no children yet, but I completely understand what most of you are saying(by most, I mean the ones that are acting like adults and making valid points, not the ones fighting and cursing at one another). And if this were one of my children, I would be ashamed; but I would quickly handle the situation, you can believe that. Yes, what they did was COMPLETELY wrong, but how is calling them "terrorist, rapist, future drunks and drug addicts" and whatever else was said helping? It’s not helping that everyone is beyond upset. It seems to me that everyone on here is acting like a child right now. Although Danny posted pictures to prove a point to the "not my kid" parents, there were still children that probably didn’t throw the hammer, rocks, potatoes or bricks and just sat there. Should they have sat there and let it happen? Absolutely not! But when you were young, did you leave your group because they were a few were doing something wrong? Did you run home and tell your parents "Hey! Guess what my friends did tonight and I sat there and watched it happen?" No, because you would have gotten you asses beat for it! (Keep in mind, I am in no way saying that the kids who didn't throw the rocks, potatoes, hammer, bricks were innocent because they are still guilty for being there and letting it happen). But to bash families is not cool/okay. You have to give the families a chance to deal with the actions of their kids. We all know that everyone knows everyone down here and most likely, you are talking about your friends children or maybe even someone you are related to!!! So again, why are we all sitting here and fighting/attacking each other about it? We are supposed to be the adults and we are going back to teenage, immature ways with this stuff. Let’s all act like responsible adults and think of solutions please!! That’s why this was started, to have a solution with an outcome. Here is a solution I propose. Next halloween, have your child check in every hour that night. Have them home at a certain time so this does not happen again. Explain to them that what happened this year was WRONG and DANGEROUS. If you as their parent ever find out that it is done again, they will be grounded for months with no facebook, no computer, no cell phone, only going out to go to school. And STICK to it!

    Bottom line, im sorry for the parents who stood up on this site and spoke out only to be knocked down by so called adults. Of course you tell your kids "have fun, be good, be careful" but not one parent really knows what's going on unless they're under surveillance. It's not the parents fault. I've lived here all my life in this small tight community and notice that it's gradually getting worse ONLY because kids from other neighborhoods such as Marine Park & Sheepshead Bay are coming to GB to hang out. They don't care about bashing someone with a potato because they don't know them! A kid from GB knows everyone!!!! 90% of these comments on this page are people who are apparently NOT
    from GB!! Comments made such as "your neighborhood", "you beach rats" etc it's unreal. So to get the neighborhood back to being safe on Halloween and every other night the answer is: keep your kids out of Gerritsen Beach and go trick or treating in your own neighborhood!!! The end!!!! Problem Solved. Easy… Cars will stop being broken into, bus stops will stop being broken, we'll be back to the good ol' days. The reason people are so angry and bashing GB on GB's website is because they know their children from out of the neighborhood were involved or in the pictures. HELLO wake up people!!!!

    • Anonymous Desk

      And I suppose that the kids from other neighborhoods dressed up as vampires, and just weren't caught in the photos because vampires don't show up on film. <:D

      No, but really, just because kids from other neighborhoods are coming into our neighborhood doesn't excuse the kids in Gerritsen from doing what they did.

      That's like saying… Uh… Gimme a second to come up with an analogy…

      "The ants from this anthill only bit me because the ants from the other anthill were doing it. It's not these ants fault."

      It sucks, I know, but its the best I could come up with. Sorry.

    Dan needs to realize that the reason he is able to see these Facebook posts is because he is "friends' with all of the kids on Facebook and therefore their private profiles are not private to him. However, him taking pictures of said private pages and making them completely public is not right. The pictures taken at the fields are one thing, they are something anyone could have seen. This isn't the case with the private Facebook pages. Get a life..

    Okay everyone attacking each other is not going to help. These kids should be held responsible for there actions. Parents you should be ashamed these children went way to far and due to they are children you are still responsible for there actions as well. What happen to respecting your community and others. Breaking windows and attacking elders is way out of hand. Forget the public apology it don't mean nothing form these kids they thought there actions were to be proud of. These kids should be sent to juevinille detention, they want to act like criminals lets see how they handle it? Maybe it will wake them up? Or community work make these kids participate in cleaning up the community. If not put locks on these parks that they all hang out at all hours of the night.

    Next question everyone here should start discussing how they are going to make sure this doesn't happen again next year. Why should this community be relying on nypd these are children! Parents need to step in and take control for now on. As earlier stated if a cop in uniform does get attacked and he does shoot it will be considered self defense by law! Now i know for a fact as a parent that is the last thing we want to happen for one of our children, is to be shot. So parents of the community why don't you guys get together and come up with solutions for this problem so it dont happen again. How about curfew? How about throw a halloween party for the whole neighbor hood.. Morning for children? Night for the older kids? Lets prevent this problem so it will never happen again!

    So these kids are not from the neighborhood. All GB kids know everyone in the beach. Well if these were outsiders why didn't the GB kids chase them off?

    Many years ago at the GBPOA meetings if something bad happened in GB it was never our kids. The same song is still being sung. It IS our kids. It could be peer pressure but do you know that if your son or daughter is hanging around with someone who commits murder they are charged with the same offence?

    We know there are very nice families with nice kids in the beach but lets remind the not so nice ones that they will eventually have to pay for the "fun" they have in their youth.

    • Anonymous Couch

      Uh, excuse me, don't go trying to blame everything on us now. The parents who run the little league take very good care of the field, and no one sees the kids running around scuffing up the field.

      However, they do see suits playing baseball, which they could undoubtably only be doing if they climbed the fence.

    • Anon Again

      Just need to interject a quick note here. Not saying they did it to the baseball field, but I have been up on the avenue when the yeshiva kids were there by the busloads and have called 311 because they left trash, garbage, and food all over the fields. It was disgusting. And they didn’t care when we approached them about cleaning up after themselves.

  • Goodjob

    This is excellent, ballsy reporting on this blog. An example of exactly what blogging is for. Kudos for not backing down and keeping the photos posted. These kids won't learn it from their parents or the police but from you that yes, there are consequences to one's own choices. Good luck.

    Look at these .. "sweet" faces on the Facebook.. Liam… baby faced kid with big lips that good for only one thing and one thing only.. and look at Michael..

Hey shit heads go clean yellow stains on your mattress first and then wipe that breast milk off your lips before you got fucked up and ended up dead somewhere in the projects.

    On the other note. It looks like GB is not a neighborhood that would stand up unified to anything since 70% of trailer trash that lives there only encourages this kind of behavior.

    In place of people, neighbors in GB after several futile calls to 911.. I would call 10 or 15 other dads, got out of the house caught up with these shit heads riot police style with plastic hang cuffs and bags over their heads throw them in to the car and drive 2 or 3 at the time to somewhere dark and quiet and just dump them there.. explaining along the way that they are pathetic little pieces of nothing! And you will know that you were successfull in your endeavor when you see them pissing their pants and crying for forgiveness and mercy, than take their picture along with their recorded statement and tell them that if they fuck up even while wiping their ass on the home toilet you will publish these pics on Facebook for everyone to see and laugh at. Remember the biggest damage to fucked up teen today is his pussy ass exposure to the rest of his asshole friends

    We had the same problem in Staten Island, with vandalism on Halloween and illegal fireworks on Independence Day. The police did nothing until they were shamed by the local paper several years in a row.

    This, however, takes the cake. The police in GB should be ashamed of themselves, to allow vandals engaging in dangerous behavior to own the community. The decent law abiding people should own the community, not the criminals.

    • anonymous

      Great Aunt Barb, not only are you taking the blame off the kids and the parents, you managed to bash to police too. Great aunt.

  • BrooklynNative

    To the irresponsible parents who condone this behavior: What the hell is wrong with you? You think it's ok to throw eggs at passing vehicles? And what are you going to say when an egg hits the windshield when an experienced driver is behind the wheel and that driver panics, loses control and gets hurt in an accident? Why don't you teach your children to exercise good judgement instead of encouraging them to break the law. Last I checked, this type of behavior is a violation of disorderly conduct and vandalism laws. You're basically encouraging your kids to break the law when you tell them it's ok to go out and do this every Halloween.

    As for the Facebook screen caps… you clearly don't understand the way the internet works. Their profiles are already in the public domain. Anyone can see them. By creating public profiles, they've outted themselves. Anyone has access to them and can take that information and use it anyway they please.

    No surprise that criminal behavior is being passed on from parents to their children. G Beach never changes. I hope the police examine this evidence and go after the boys who threw eggs and rocks at the bus. They've vandalized public property and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    As for going after orthodox Jews, is anyone really surprised that kids from G Beach did that? There are plenty of openly biggoted people living in G Beach and they're not bashful about. Great example to set for you kids. I'm sure one of them will grow up to be president some day. Thanks for giving us kids who will be such great positive contributors to society.

  • Erin

    Good job. You are doing a public service. I hope these kids are punished to the fullest extent of the law. This is a case of poor parenting.

    Keep these photos UP. Send them to elected officials, Ray Kelly's office, the mayor, the whole lot of them. When you get a group that large causing problems we're just lucky none of them had a gun – because I bet they would have used it a few passing cars.

    In fact, if this happens next year, dial 911 and report it as a large group firing a gun at people. You will see every cop in brooklyn show up. It is in fact the only time they ever respond to 911 anymore.

    • anonymous

      Calling 911 and reporting a crime that is false, is a crime. You would get in more trouble doing that then getting caught throwing eggs! And if YOU decide to do that I hope your family members are not on the other side of the neighborhood waiting for help.

    so these teens are ignorant and irresponsible enough to throw rocks and hammers and 2x4s?

    You guys do know that the real reason why these kids act out is cause of being either sexually oppressed or being sexually abused by their parents. The pathology is pretty much the same 90% of the time. Most likely it's their father's or a male "parental" figure who comes up to them in the middle of the night and open's their mouths and puts his penis into their gaping oral orifices and moves it back and forth. You should feel sorry for these kids not condemn them.

    This probably the most ignorant, juvenile and immature thing I've seen in a while. These kids will probably never go anywhere in life and it will catch up with them in the end. The only reason the parents allowed it is because they're the same way and hate themselves as well. In the end, they will end up hating their lives as well. Ever seen the movie Idiocracy?

    Behaving like the white trash that raised them.

    This is what happens when you teach your children that eggs are for throwing and poptarts are for breakfast.

  • Just my opinion

    Yes kids will bed kids, but their parents MUST be parents. Come on parents. We know that our kids are going to push the envelope, but they should also know that if they do something bad….there will be consequences. Telling your child to watch out for cops. You are defenetly not setting a good example. I know a few of these kids and their parents. Yes some of these children did some terrible things and some of the kids were there.

    I have one thing that bothers me. Many of these parents are still hanging out drinking and partying…to busy to watch their kids. We had our time!!! Its time to hang up your drinking shoes and be a parent. Your job is to now create a honorable, intellegent human being. You should be home when your child comes home at night. You should be making sure that your child is not joining this terrible behaviour.

    The number one lesson that should be teaching our children from this is that….don't do anything that you will regret later. Think about our actions. What if the bus swirved and hit another person. Was it worth it? A life lost for a damn potatoe. Jeez.

    Another lesson guys…when you put something on the internet it will NEVER go away. Your names will be forever remembered in the pc world. So when it is time for a career and college…this will come up. Was it worth it????

  • T

    I'm glad you are calling these punks out and clearly the police should have responded in some way, but I have problems with the line "In a classic hate crime approach the teens also chased two hasidic jewish men throwing rocks at them".

    So the teens are throwing objects at anyone and everyone that walks by, but because they also threw things at 2 Jewish men, all of a sudden it's a hate crime?


  • LOL

    These kids are a bunch of retards plain and simple. When we used to bomb we only got other people with eggs or shaving cream – not innocent people, city buses, cops.These are probably the same retards that start with 1 person and then when the person fights back the whole group attacks. Buncha pu$$ies.

    I clicked over to this site from the story on gothamist.com and just spent a good chunk of time reading this entire comments thread.

    Good Lord, but there's a lot of ghetto mentality in your neighborhood.

    Are there no men in Gerritsen Beach? Judging from the way your boys behave — in public, no less — one would have to wonder.

    I mean…chasing down a senior citizen with rocks and chunks of brick? Attacking a mother with a baby in a stroller? Throwing a hammer?


    A hammer?

    And because so many of you have chosen to attack the man who owns this blog, one can only conclude that a lot of folks in your little "community" believe that this behavior is totally acceptable.

    But only so long as it's not made public.

    Because, the minutes it's publicized, it's the whistleblower who comes under attack.

    I'll say it again — that's some straight-up ghetto thinking, right there.

    Until today, I only knew Gerritsen Beach as the birthplace of Robert Anton Wilson, one of my favorite writers.

    But now, whenever I hear or read the words "Gerritsen Beach," it will forever be another writer whose name comes to my mind, that of William Goldman.

    Ever heard of him? He wrote a novel called "Lord of the Flies."

    Those of you in GB who have the sense to be horrified about all this might want to read (or re-read) it. Just so you know what to expect as these young savages become further emboldened by the lack of consequences for their actions.

    Sucks being you folks.

            im pretty sure the illegal part is posting the names of minors in connection to "alleged" crimes. First of all there was no trial, so blogger must write "alleged", second of all victims names and names of minors must be protected. Thats why juvinile records are SEALED.

    Danny, you're the man. Ballsy as hell. I just saw the review of this on CW11 news, I can't believe this got out so far. My hat is off to you for airing out the dirty laundery. GB is a disgusting place sometime, mainly because of this kind of behavior by residents. The woman who appeared on CW11 complaining about her kids "slandered", I thought was first a homeless person being interviewed, you know you waged a war but than again you earned yourself the credit you long deserved. GB can be such a disgusting place, let the whole world know (or as much as can read) with people like this the quality of life and our civil ways are not respected in such area, the parents are just awaful; I can imagine them saying "I'm mad at you, but at least you didn't get caught by cops, makes me proud enough not to punish you that bad.". People will be talking about this for the next year to come, the people of GB did this to themselves, this is only one example; many more will come.

      If it is such a bad place move the hell out. This situation is not the norm, it was too far and the parents should give the kids involved a good old fashion ass kicking. But then the so called authorities would get involved. There is no need for this circus or all the outside attention. Every part of this city has problem and more outside intervention is not needed a little parenting can go a long way.

  • P.C.

    Teenhood antics should not excuse property damage, assault/battery, and vandalism. Kids need guidance not allowance for misbehaviors. The community is an extension of a family; everyone's responsible for upholding courtesy and respect.

    Yes, these kids SHOULD get in trouble, but by their parents.There is no reason to put up their pictures and facebook names. It shouldn't be acceptable to post someone's information when they are under a certain age.

    • Anon Again

      These under age kids, posted ALL their information on a public forum. The parents just don't give a crap so why would they punish them. Most of these kids were roaming the streets the next day. Punished, right!

  • anonymous1

    I am really thinking that this is getting totally blow out of proportion, no one was hurt, I was up and down the avenue at least 4 times Halloween, one picture shows the kids standing on a corner, I did see that but they were not doing anything. I saw a bus stopped it did have ONE egg dripping off the windshield., no kids were around, no eggs on the sidewalk or street.. I am really upset that this is going on. Maybe people should grow up along with the kids and start worrying about the really important things happening in this neighborhood not eggs or potatoes….such crap!! But I have to say there are a lot of hits on this website

  • A frequent Gerritsen

    Gerritsen beach is one of the worst part of brooklyn. Take it from me. Nobody ever really sees the crappy parts. The kids make the neighborhood trash. Between smoking weed in the backweeds, late night partying, and the unbelievable racism, Gerritsen isnt exactly a haven for me, a black teen. I definetely think you did the right thing man. These kids are all protected by the families good names. Just because their familes are good people doesnt mean that they are above the law.

    Oh and. I know most of those scumbag kids. They're all trailer trash.

      Though, some of us may have valid reasons for being slightly racist. Such as: Getting beat up in school because you're white, or getting robbed on the train.

      • guest

        Matthew , you hit on the double standard. I can see you have lived in Brooklyn long enough to know that racism is a two way street even though popular opinion and our media conveniently ignores it.

        White violence and so called "hate speech" is racist

        Violence against whites is a crime, "hate speech" against whites is the freedom of speech.

        Take note of the "hate speech" in both statements, it is there because all this PC BS is just that. Actions are what the law should address not thought or speech.

  • ....

    since everyone seems to have an opionion on here … im gonna say my peace. its pathetic what some of you people are saying and maybe you should worry about your own family instead of blogging on gerritsenbeach.net about other families. no body is perfect. with that being said im sure every person who has commented on this site has someone in their family who did not think before acting. and unfortunately thats something that kids do. and they learn from they're mistakes. apparently, some of you "parents" dont think before you act either at a grown age since your bashing minors. i understand that the events that occurred on halloween were out of hand, there are other ways to express you thoughts and feeling rather then on an internet site where the kids who did the "bombing" can see. It's not setting a good example for them. No wonder why they act out like this. And as for the man who took the pictures and posted these kids facebooks. shame on you. There are more "adult" ways to handle a situation like that with out causing confrontation for an entire community. But apparently, you were just looking for something you knew would put the limelight on you and your "blog"

    This is a real joke now, Danny are you trying to run for some kind of political office? If you are, im sure there are alot of people ready to dig up alot of dirt on you buddy!

Why did he not post the damage to Marine Park up in Marine park.net? On Sheepshead bites one of the comments having to do with this story someone says their house got bombed and yet that wasn't put up in that blog. This was all he had to get people commenting. It's being misreported and exaggerated. They weren't bombing woman with baby carriages! I can't believe how many times you have posted about this. You are enjoying it sooo much. Do you know how sick that is? To revel in the pain of other people? And you get meaner and meaner.

      Just because WB11 says the police say they had no reports doesn't mean there weren't 911 calls, what it means is they had no criminal complaint reports in the computer at that time. Which in itself is wrong because everyone saw the damage to the bus which would have been reported and eventually made its way to the precinct concerned. And we already knew there were no arrests I'd bet there were no arrests at all in these precincts on Halloween, it was a Sunday dam near half the officers are off on Sundays

            so someone has a confederate flag and that makes a whole neighborhood racist ? Go to public schools in East N Y, Harlem & the Bronx and see The red, black & green hanging in the halls. Then listen to the other version of history thats being taught. Then listen to the wonderful politicos they elect like Charles Barron who’s only quallification is being good at racist rants. A black man has a greater chance of surviving a walk through the Beach than whitey will through East N Y anyday.If you beg to differ prove your point & go for a walk down Livonia Ave like I did on a daily basis.

    I can’t believe these events made it onto a Police website and blogg, don’t be a bit surpised if the two precinct commanders aren’t called in on Kelly’s carpet to explain and then out of no where there will be massive enforcement in this neighborhood. Everything from parking to bike riding to trespassing in the park. Get ready I think there is going to be some responce, no one, espically the police, like being showed up

  • susan

    This was uncalled for. DOes this guy Danny have nothing better to do than stick his business where it doesn't belong? If kids were being reckless than it is up to the persons that were on the other end of the reckless behavior to be involved. He deliberately went out looking for things to record. As far as putting kids facebook blogs up on the web….that was low. It's obvious Danny doesn't have kids or probably even a girlfriend for that matter. He needs to get a life. I don't condone what some of the kids have done, but it is not HIS place to make a mockery of our neighborhood. Danny has put down our kids, neighborhood and police dept. for all the world to see. I don't appreciate having to see our neighborhood on the news. Danny could have taken his information to a property owners meeting or asked Golden to have a special meeting to share this information if he felt it was his duty to share. Putting it on the newspaper (internet) and going on TV was just too much. Get a Life Danny!

    Signed a middle aged parent (and NO, neither of my kids were involved so it's not sour grapes)

          Just a question, of all the anonymous names you could have chosen: Unbelievable IQ? lol. Unbelievably low? or high? or are your arguments so good or bad that it's hard to believe that you have an average IQ? Or is it an average IQ, and you're simply trying to give more validity to your argument by lying and saying that it is unbelievably high? Either way, the only two logical reasons I can think of that someone would put that as their "Name" is because they either have very poor esteem and their ego is so out of whack that they have to convince the world that they are better to believe it themselves, or they have such an inflated ego that they feel it necessary to brag in such a self-glorifying fashion; in which case I would have to argue that it's a little presumptuous to assume that you are more intelligent than your peers. "Unbelievable IQ" or not, that type of conceited pompousness warrants suspicion of your arguments to be potentially pretentiously dogmatic, and I personally shall give none of your bold impudent remarks any validity.

One of those people who moved in and couldn't make any friends, I guess, so now she gets her jollies bashing other people. She has a filthy mouth and must have posted about 50x on this. I can't imagine someone getting off that much on other peoples business, and trouble. What goes around, comes around. She'll get hers. My heart goes out to the families that are being ripped apart like this. They are some of the best people I know and I hope they realize how many of these horrible comments come from outside the beach and from people who have always hated the beach for whatever their personnal reasons are. Probably got their ass kicked here or were rejected here. Losers.

        You know Gerritsen Girl, I've read a lot of pompous, self-righteous, ignorant, bull-shit on this website; but you definitely take the cake. What gives you the right to call a woman a Chromagnum, just because she's concerned for her son's future? For you to even make such a presumptuous remark based on her appearance would indicate that you are not much better than a supercilious Chromagnum yourself. That is the same benighted judgmental mentality that creates blind hate in the world and forms things like racism.

        Name was changed: Her son is not an illiterate "neanderthal." He's actually 12 years old and he's already been published in several books. As a matter of fact, I'd be willing to go as far to say that he is one of the most intelligent people I know, and for you to make a judgment on something for it's face-value is ignorant. I know it may be hard for you to believe, but I swear by it. Allow me to repeat myself, He is quite possibly the MOST intelligent person I know.

            her son posted on facebook and was busted for it. if anything she should be mad at her son for putting up the information. if anyone has damaged his future it was himself. but hey i’m sure the little genius will be fine with a mother like that

            I got to tell you, I sort of kind of sympathize with you, but to tell you the truth, SHE DID IT TO HERSELF!

            You know, for someone with a 3.9 GPA and multiple scholarships, YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING!

            Being the only educated person in your family, you should have explained to your mother how facebook, blogs and video work. Perhaps you could have saved your family some embarrassment.

            Did you think for one second the behavior your mother exhibited helped your brother, you or your family in any way?

            You should have put your education to good use and perhaps told your brother not to put stupid shit on facebook and NOT GO bombing. You should have also explained to your mother that ranting like a drunk whit trash idiot on video is not good for your family!

            While I do feel bad for you, if you really are in college and making something out of yourself, you have only your mom to thank for making your family look like white trash!

          • Anthony

            I’m not the “only” uneducated person in my family. I’m the only adult of 4 brothers, and I assure you that if my brothers are ignorant fools it’s purely out of their age and a lack of wisdom. For their ages however, I can assure you that they are very wise. But wise for their ages or not, at their age social acceptance is priority #1, and practically EVERY kid in the neighborhood either does or wants to throw eggs on Halloween. I can promise you however, that with age they will become even wiser, and not the “ignorant white-trash” that they are stereotyped as.

            Second off, I DID SEE IT COMING. I don’t support my mother in saying all that arrogant bullshit that she did on film, but she does have a few valid points. I’m not saying that it necessarily is, but I believe that it’s unethical that he’s taking pictures of children and posting it online without their or their parents consent. I believe there was a more rational way of going about things, and possibly ruining their futures in my opinion was not the most logical. Often if a child is publicly viewed as a misfit he will lack the initiative to become anything more than.

            That’s what I tried to argue at the meeting. My mother on the other hand, is simply put, an overly emotional arrogant bitch. She isn’t unintelligent so much as she is arrogant. She is not a “neanderthal” that does not understand facebook or the social media though. I know that’s a sad thing to say about my mother, but I don’t intend it as an insult, it’s the truth. Do you honestly think I agree with everything she said? My speech wasn’t played on the news, but I even said that it’s ridiculous to label Danny a pedophile for taking pictures for his website. It’s hard to tell from the angle and distance of the camera, but If you saw my expression clearly, I was even amazed at the tumultuous amount of shit that was coming out of her mouth. I told her from the start, that instead of saying all that crap she said, she should simply have said, “I have reason to believe that my children were not directly involved, although if they were in any way, I deeply apologize.” But you see, that’s how arrogance is. It refuses to listen to reason. I tried to tell her all the things that you’ve told me, and all I got was the same angry response. It was only after she saw herself on T.V. and all the criticism that she realized how much of a fool she was.

          • You are you smarter than a 5th grader?

            That was a very humble and intelligent response. It is a good thing your brothers have you for a role model, my apologies. I am in no way being sarcastic and truly mean that.

            You should have asked your mom to stay home and have represented your family at the meeting, I think the public opinion would have been very different.

          • Anthony

            Am I defending the children? Not at all. But I don’t think it’s necessary to say that they are guilty. That pretty much goes without question. But I don’t believe that everyone should get all self-righteous and point the finger at them like their little vandal pieces of shit; because if those people were their age and in their shoes, I think chances are they’d have done the same thing… despite what they say…

            It’s one thing to say that these kids were wrong and what they did was horrible. It’s another thing to say that they’re piece of shit white trash misfits with no future. They make mistakes just like everyone else, and I can assure you that they will in fact learn their lessons. And not the pompous self-righteous lesson that if you do something bad you’ll be punished, but the wise open-minded lesson that what they did was inconsiderate and unfair to the people they did it to. Children are often extremely inconsiderate and they often do things for the sake of “being cool” and “having fun.” No parent can monitor their teenage children ALL DAY LONG. That’s where the police do their job. They keep the kids in line when the parents aren’t around. On Halloween there WERE NO POLICE to do their job. They were all scared away. Is it really such a shock that something like this could have happened?

            Also, about my family being viewed as “White Trash.” To all those people who think my family are white trash: Fuck You. If there is anything I hate it’s the generalized judging of people, whether negatively or even positively. We are neither racists, nor homophobes, nor misogynists, nor bigots of any sort. We believe in equality as well as empathy and compassion for other people. To all the people who call my family white trash: You are being overly-judgmental, labeling my family of which you don’t even know. You are in fact using the same mechanisms of “generalizing” that causes white trash hate like racism, misogyny, homophobia, bigotry, and sheer ignorance. Now how does being being a pompous, conceited, self-righteous, supercilious, imperious, overly judgmental, pretentiously dogmatic, hypocritical, self-asserting asshole have anything to do with being white trash? You tell me after you take a long hard look in the mirror.

I am so disgusted by her and all the others ripping you all apart. I have known you since kindergarten and you have grown up to be a fine young man. Your Mom has never been anything but nice and helpful, friendly, salt of the earth. She always has a ready smile and I hope she doesn’t lose that. You’ll all get thru this and be stronger for it.

          • sorry for you all

            Anthony : I for one feel that all of this name calling and pileing on went way to far for all concerned …I heard you speak at the meeting, and in reading what you wrote I realize that you could have made an educated contribution to a volitile situation..Without the back and forth name calling…Sounds to me like you said it all ” They were wrong and my family will deal with it” I hope all this stops soon, for you and your Mother…Next meeting bring some duct tape for Mom..LOl LOL LOl…

    Danny, Good for you Bro. That is all I can say. Some parents will spend a lot of money only to find what you did was perfectly legal. As parents, they should be more concerned about what their child did and not what you wrote. They don't have to worry, their kids will ruin their own future. You really will have nothing to do with that. Joe D. bro,,,,,you need to be looking in your own back yard!!! Defintely a short fuse. You really shouldn't have even shown your face at that meeting. Once again Danny,,,clap clap clap.

  • wake up !

    this is exactly why I had to install cameras ,parents dont know what their darlings are up to till I show them is that YOUR kid in YOUR car smoking pot in front of my house,the look on their face is allways the same,no clue!stupid kids, cameras are everywhere.big brother is watching !

  • Take care of your ow

    Look this site seems to get the message out, however as this story clearly illustrates the Internet has not boarders. Does a neighborhood that has been and continues to be great place to live really need all this attention and outside intervention? Now I am not saying theses things should not be addressed, because they should by the parents involved. This story should be the wake call for parents, when I was young in the beach I never knew who was keeping tabs on me. At times it seemed like my parents had eyes behind their heads, if I was doing something really stupid believe me they would hear about it and in turn I would too. It all boils down to teaching your kids limits, monitoring them and holding them accountable when they push the envelope.

    On a related note, this site should seriously think about authentication, it would not take much to set up and it could keep the beach's business in the beach while still serving its purpose. Do you really think all the outsiders on this site bashing it and going off on tangents about the beach is helping the situation ? There are a lot of people and organizations down here that work very hard to make it the nice place it is. Do we really need the bad judgment of some to label us all cretins in the eyes of anyone with an Internet connection? At the risk of laboring the point, do we really think those from outside the beach have our best interest in mind? Or are they just ceasing this opportunity to slander a lot of hardworking and decent people ?

    Let the comments begin :-)

      I agree with you 100%. If he were actually interested in providing a community service with this blog, he would do that. But I doubt he will. He was chomping at the bit for Halloween to come, posting about it weeks in advance that it was coming. It's been a dead website for months and he was salivating at the chance to stir something up. He is in his glory now that we are being bashed from every corner of this city. He doesn't care as long as his name is appearing on the news and he is getting probably the most hits ever. As usual, news outlets get things wrong. One blog has them throwing eggs at women with baby carriages, that didn't happen. A hammer, that there is also no evidence of has turned into hammers. It's not like egg throwing doesn't happen all over. I'm not saying that these kids didn't take it to the extreme and it needs to be dealt with by their parents, but it makes me sick to see the pleasure that some people take in the bashing. At the end of the day, these are kids 13, 14, 15 years old. Who didn't need to give their kids a few attitude adjustments when they were that age? You can't be everywhere, you can't follow them around and when you become aware of problems or they need adjustment, you give it. Thats what raising kids is all about. There are commentors from outside the beach who are in their glory, "LOL" and "Vincent" are 2 who ALWAYS bash the beach, for whatever their personal reasons are, and they are having a field day with this. Some of the comments were so mean and nasty, I couldn't believe it. One guy said awful things to a 13 year old girl, and WE are the trash? I say if Danny truly is interested in being a service to the community, as he always claims to be, then let him make it private, for the community. FUBU. (for us/by us)

      But you forget, when those vandals damaged a city bus, it became every NYers business and expenxe. And you know what, i am tired of you inbrecd rednecks there acting like that is your own little kingdom. IT"S NOT! It si a part of NYC, get used to it. I am sorry the cops have had a hands off approach to the criminals who live in that area because after all, how many of those liitle criminals are the children of police?

  • Anonymous

    Enough Already you happy you got your five minutes of fame Daniel at the expense of exploiting minors. Your claims are totally off point and no need to call the kids criminals. Think this way blown up way too much. Kids are kids they are going to make mistakes. Your a coward and should have took this up with the kids parents. I know lot of these kids and they are not the complete hoodlums you people claim they are. Good example for the kids how do we stop this behavior that has been going on for years in Gerritsen Beach. We want the kids to stop hanging on the corner causing mischief. The one way this will happen is encouraging them to get jobs.

    Thanks to you now these kids have false reports out on the web and will haunt them the rest of their lives.

    Thanks a lot asshole!

The nerve of one guy to say they are mentally challenged. Clay you know who I am referring to man up and say your name

      Ha, that's right Bri, you tell em you have no idea what the fuck you're talking about but you go right on. I do contribute to society, thank you although I do have crumbs on my face but reserve that for when I'm watching tv didn't realize it was soooo obvious, and no my dog doesn't love the stench, he has her own stench thank you very much. Don't have kids just for this purpose and yes there's dirt in my closet, I sometimes forget to wipe my feet, and I also have some outdated clothes I need to get rid of being you care so much. My given name is Gerritsen Girl, what, you think I made that up. If you have all the time to follow people around and take cameras, go ahead Bri, you're a hero cos your standing up for the freaks, wow what a friggin hero! Fuck you.

        I think you could've retorted without using such harsh language at the end. I mean, it's like like they're very intellegent. Shouldn't be so hard to outsmart them without cuss words.

        Not that I don't use them too. <:D

        If he does go and take some of the dirt from your closet, he'd just be breaking and entering, so you could arrest him for that. Not sure, not sure, but I heard it was illegal.

        At least you didn't press Caps Lock and think it made a difference. -Cough-

        *He* has *Her* own stench… lol?

    • Matthew Cummins

      I think Gerritsen Girl makes valid points. First of all, Mr.Daly, it's not as if he's stalking the kids. ~_~ When you're all lined up on Gerritsen, launching eggs and shaving cream at people, why not take a few pictures? And the website is on the public domain. It's not as if he's climbin' in yo windows, snatchin' yo people up.

      As for fat people, you're not exactly the one… to be talking… <_< Just saying.

      Though, I'll point out that if I get picked on or otherwise confronted for not using my "Anonymous Furniture" name, it'll only further my point of putting up anonymous names. It's not because people are afraid of being confronted, it's because the people in this neighborhood (children and adults) aren't mature enough to handle a different point of view.

      • Amazing.

        It's hard to take his argument seriously when it is stuck on caps lock.

        I took one look and disregarded it. Learn to argue your point with proper decorum Mr. Daly.

        But maybe that's lost on you because you're "infected" with the same malignant nonsense that's spread through these children.

    What Danny did is part of a growing trend, according to this article in the Times:


    It's simple: if you're going to act like an antisocial fool in public, somebody is going to record it and put it out there. And, in today's world, "out there" means EVERYwhere.

    And it's forever.

    The problem isn't that everyone now knows how your children behave.

    The problem is that your children behave this way in the first place.

    And every one of you who attacks the messenger bears responsibility for that behavior. They're looking to you to teach them by example, and what you're teaching them is "Do whatever you want, hurt whoever you want, just don't get caught."

    • Anon Again

      It’s not Danny who is dividing the community, it’s the disgusting behavior of the kids. The rest of the community is tired of having to deal with this behavior from them and it’s about time the parents of these kids step up to the plate and actually be a parent.

  • Just a thought

    don't shoot the messenger just because you don't like the message. bottom line is if these POS didn't DO anything wrong, then there would be no story here, Dan has done no wrong in his actions. For those who actually think that taking this matter privately to the parents directly would have actually brought about some positive action, I have a bridge to sell you. Fact is, while shaving cream, eggs, t.p, are part of (what these kids are calling tradition, is legal, ASSAULT with what is known as a deadly weapon is NOT (a rock, a brick or a piece of a brick, a potato, a HAMMER all become projectiles and thereby are rendered a weapon). SOME of them took it too far and made it a DANGEROUS situation. OWN it (and the parents need to step back and look at the big picture here), be responsible, take the consequences. They behaved like a mob with a gang mentality and someone could have really been injured. BUT people are intimidated by them for fear of retaliation, and rightfully so, given the actions of these kids and they are NOT, I repeat NOT children, they know right from wrong, they just don't care. And apparently neither do the parents. They need to stop being "all about me" and being incredulous and IN DENIAL about their YOUNG ADULTS. They are ALL well above the age of reason. Send all the punks to boot camp they will learn how NOT to be. They will learn that if one of them screws up ALL of them pay for it. And perhaps the parents should look into parenting skills classes obviously THEY don't get it either….

  • not that serious

    this is insanity…i hate to break the news to the people that dont leave this inbred hole on the earth you people call a "community"….but "bombing" on halloween happens everywhere in brooklynand the tri state…why dont you drive up to mill basinn and check out the toilette paper thats still in the trees..or check out the stores in marine park and sheepshead bay that have shaving cream on them still…they took it a little too far..but they didnt murder anyone or injury anyone for that matter..a young couple was shot halloween night and that didnt make it on channel 11 but this over exagerrated dramtized nonsense does??..to bash the parents is alittle ridiculouss…i think throwing a couple of eggs on halloween is the very least of this "community's" problem..

    • Seriously

      It is not the bombing wonderboy.. It was the response from the kids and the parents. They take NO responsibility for this, its simple. This type of behaviour is normal for scum like them.

    • Anonymous

      It's not the toilet paper, the eggs, the shaving cream.

      It's the rocks. The bricks. The potatoes. A HAMMER?

      My friend's sister was the mother that was trying to shield her baby in the stroller from these assholes.

      Baby suffered a little case of whiplash…when you're a baby, a little thing is a big deal.

      Maybe I don't agree with facebook profiles being posted.

      I DO agree with pictures of the kids responsible being posted.

      Hopefully these kids were handled by their parents. If it was one of THEIR babies in a stroller who got hurt…or THEIR mother or father getting pelted…They'd be screaming bloddy HELL!

      Take responsibility for your kids, and maybe it won't happen at this magnitude again next year.

      • Amazing.

        Who cares if it was the most minor incident on Halloween? Does that make it any less deplorable? What universe are you living in?

        This is assuming it was as minor as you say. All reports show that it was most certainly not. Halloween pranks around my area involve toilet paper and eggs. Potatoes are where the line is drawn. Uncooked potatoes are heavy objects, tantamount to stones. Then you factor in hammers and rocks into the mix? A mother and her baby? If you think this isn't worthy of controversy because you would rather sweep it under the rug rather than discuss a serious attitude problem plaguing teenagers, you're out of your god damn mind and as a result you are no authority on the subject.

        What else would you rather have us talk about in lieu of this? The weather in Gerritsen Beach?

      Yeah, and what about the BS about the 2 Hasids? If that really happened do you really think that nothing would have been done? And how farfetched is it that 2 Hasidic men were walking down Gerritsen Ave in the first place, on Holloween, no less. (not that they aren't welcome here and do come down for the water on holidays, etc. and NO ONE ever bothers them, as they shouldn't) I believe half of this is sensationalistic bullshit worthy of the Enquirer. He was getting no attention on this site, no bus shelters have been broken in months and he needed something. If there was a hammer, why not get a picture of that? Has the older man that was supposedly attacked come forward?

    What these kids did on Halloween is criminal conduct, plain and simple. For anyone to defend the actions of these teenage vandals or to criticize the editor of this blog, is incredibly short-sighted. I doubt you would be so casual if someone would have been seriously injured. But it's apparently just fine to harass Orthodox men or assault an older man with eggs and more dangerous items.

    Just to clarify, I love Gerritsen Beach hence my name, I've lived here a long time and love this place, it's safe and you can go out any time night or day, it's beautiful in the summer, close to all my neighbors, which is what disgusts me about this incident, we're better than that.

    We should not defend these acts, it isn't helping these kids at all, it will only get worse, obviously these parents are in over their head but they still need to make these kids accountable for their actions. I don't get insulted by the stupid comments because I am no better and put a few in myself. I like to bait people because they let someone they don't even know anger them, life's too short. We need to come together as a community and we can't shelter and defend what's wrong, I've said my piece, "Can't we all just get along"?

    • anon

      You will never be a true Gerritsen girl. You did not grow up here. I enjoy and agree with most of your posts though. In the eyes of people down here you will never be a Gerritsen girl. For instance, you can never win Gerritsen Beach mother of the year in the Cort Club. That is if you even know what the Cort Club is.

        Oh, I'm sorry, I guess that means everyone who didn't live here originally should just pack up and leave, right? Trust me, I'd love to, but unfortunately that's not going to happen until I go to college. Which, not surprisingly, most of the kids in the neighborhood won't be going to.

        Cort Club is stupid. I think I'd prefer the Knights to it, kthx.

        • WHAT ?

          "Which, not surprisingly, most of the kids in the neighborhood won’t be going to." At least half if not more of the people I spend time with from the beach have a BA / BS or an advanced degree. Now, I could be wrong and you may have a better bead on the kids coming up today.

          • Matthew Cummins

            Well, I'm only referring to the kids we see here. If they were that smart, then wouldn't be confessing on facebook to something they know is illegal, would they.

            But, I maye have exaggerated just a little bit. I know other kids who do very well in school too.

    Don't you think he posted this, to get people to come to this website. I saw no evidence that the kids did everything that was said. How many people have ACTUALLY seen the things being said happening?

    • He has pictures?

      OK, so he has all this stuff and he also video tapes as well. Where are the videos of the crimes. yor right, its a a story from him that he could have embelished and it is sad that most of what he put on here probably was. A hammer was found, ok there is a contruction site in progress where this happened, so mabe one of the contractors droppe dit when working on the new field house. The potato? ok that was worng. The actions that are posted are terrible, but were are the witnesses. Did the 61 year old man go to the police? This is a tabloid site that is just trying to sell itself and remember, he is just a messenger. A messenger with a goal of making money.

      one question. If it is ok to put minors pictures up on this site and copy their info off face book and post it. Why didnt the Channel 11 new story show the faces as well??? They blurred them all out. The question is why would the news do it if it is completley legal or are they jsut being responsible Journalist and not trying to casue issues?

        Ahhh! Plausible deniabilty. This is so weak. The classic, shoot the messenger!

          Or show some proof rather than a crazy story which most is made up and yes this website is making money. That is why he is rubbing one out as all these posts keep going and giving credibility to his lunacy, he would sell a family member to get attention which I am sure he has looked into.

          No Credibility, jsut a Creepy guy walking the streets hiding behind cars and taking pictures of Children. It would be nice to see all the pictures he has taken over the years. I am sure he has some perverted pics with all his spying and sneaking around.

    Wow, what a bunch of pussies the kids in the Beach turned out to be! Jacking up an old man!! That took balls. Probably when he was your age he would have whooped your asses. But then again you proabaly would run away long before it came to that. What's next for you "warriors", old ladies in wheel chairs? Now there's a challenge.

    Well, as they say, what goes around, comes around. In the not too distant future, you'll have to go out into the world and take responsibilty for your actions. You won't have mommy and daddy to wipe your asses for you. Try being a man now and take responsibilty!!

    To the Parents of these little geniuses: Why not bring your children to volunteer at a veterans home or something. Take those pictures and post those to "show" that you are teaching your child some sort of responsibilty.

    • Matthew Cummins

      I'll repeat this for what definately won't be the last time. Nono, actually, you know what? I'll just lie and say I don't live in the Beach anymore. Since, apparently, just by living in the Beach, I'm a pussy, delinquent, white trash, in-bred (? I'm relatively sure my Mother and Father aren't from the same family), and aren't going to go anywhere in life.

      Though, don't get me wrong. You're hilarious. <_< I'd just appreciate it if you'd stop targeting ALL the kids in the Beach. I could name at least two (not that I will, because that'd be just stupid) excluding myself that weren't even in Gerritsen Beach during Halloween, and at least four others (including myself) who just stayed inside the entire holiday. Because we have no life, obviously! Well, we do. But it's centered around XBox and the computer.

      But what if we go to a veteran's home and start pegging them with rocks?! D: -Le gasp-

      • Realist State

        Good point, and obviously should have only been directed at those barve souls who attacked the buses, the cops and the old man. I though that was a given, but I stand corrected. I'm sure it was not ALL kids in Gerritsen Beach this past Halloween, just as it was not ALL GB kids when I grew up there.

        That being said, I would hope that the perpetrators of the of festivities would attempt to rehabilitate themselves by doing something to give back to the community they profess to love. Perhaps you could initiate something with the help of your parents. You sound like a smart kid, maybe you can make it work.

        PS: Chucking rocks at veterans would probably not be a good idea…they can probably throw them back.

        • Matthew Cummins

          Ha, unfortunately, I don't interact with these kids at all, have no intention of interacting with them, and really don't care–at all–about the wellfare of the neighborhood. If anything, my participation on this site (which, really, is only on this single subject), is directed to better only my own welfare, and the welfare of my friends (not that I have any, but allies, maybe? The kids with no lives like myself, who actually do GOOD in school, and go Trick-or-Treating on Halloween [not that I do]). I'd rather be blamed for something I said.

          Now then, let me give you my pessimistic view of what's going to happen. Since it's getting a rather decent amount of news coverage, the police are–eventually–going to have to step in and confront either Dan, or the children. My bet is the children, since the first amendment lets him write WHATEVER HE WANTS. -Cough- So, the kids get arrested, and then Dan gets assaulted, or there's property damage. Car's tire's slashed. Blah blah blah.

          Then there'll be another topic on this goddamned website about it, and I'll be sitting here, gloating, posting about how I put right 'ere what would happen.

          PS: Oh, but then all the kids would run away, harhar. Maybe to the back weeds or behind their mother's skirts.

      BTW, what's with the "..if you don't like it here, move…" comment? I think the fact that he identified a problem, and some people want keep their collective heads in the sand, makes him the bad guy? Move and leave us in our ignorance? How American is that? Besides the fact that his family has probably been in the Beach longer than anyone's family that was in the room.

      All should take this passage to heart:

      Luke 6:42 "How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."

        I'm saving that quote from the bible in my quote's collection, along with…

        "And he (Jesus) asked the man, "What is thy name," and he replied, "My name is Legion, for we are many."

        Oh, and…

        "In my dream, the world had suffered a terrible disaster. A black haze shut out the sun, and the darkness was alive with the moans and screams of wounded people. Suddenly, a small light glowed. A candle flickered into life, symbol of hope for millions. A single tiny candle, shining in the ugly dark. I laughed and blew it out.. "

        If those comments were taken in context one would realize they were aimed at those that were just bashing the beach. They were not in respect to this situation which is an isolated event that should not skew a person's entire perception of the neighborhood. I for one do not have my head in the sand, I know the beach is by far one of the nicest and safest places in Brooklyn. As a realist, I assume you would agree with that. I can appreciate and agree with those that are addressing this incident directly not those just using it as an excuse to bash the beach or those from it that had nothing to do with this.

        • Realist State

          The entire posting is about the lack of police response (read the title of post). I don’t consider that “bashing”. GB is not a “gulag state”, where evrything should be swept under the rug

          Like any discerning adults, provided information, you should draw your own opinions. If your ok with the behaviour of the police response, or the acts of some of the “children”, that’s your opinion, and I’m fine with that.

          But I’m all about responsibility. And adults that make excuses for the kids actions, and police that are not prepared to protect the community, then something is wrong. It’s only a matter of time when somone takes action on their own, and some kid gets hurt or killed for just “throwing an egg”. Be “real”…what if it was your grandfather that got pelted with eggs? How would you feel?

          If the community wants to police itself, fine. Then some adults or parents should have been up there to break up that group. But no, in order to get any action, someone had to “turn the light on”, and suddenly there was this collective gasp (from under the sand). And instead of action, let’s attack the person who turned on the light.

          Yes, it’s been happening for years. It still doesn’t make it right. And if the outside world is now peaking under your skirt, and they don’t like what they see, then fix it!!

      • chucklehead

        For the woman who complained in the CW11 news report, and at the meeting, that her son is being “slandered:”

        Dan did not, in any legal sense, “slander” your son. He reported on the events of Halloween, and that some neighborhood kids boasted on Facebook about participating in the incident. All of which is factual, and documented. The principle in First Amendment law is that “the truth is an absolute defense.” In other words, so long as what he said is demonstrably true, he’s not exposed to legal action in any way, shape or form, because he did nothing that can be called illegal. His motivation doesn’t matter; the only thing that matters is whether or not his reporting is accurate.

        (I won’t speculate on Dan’s motivations, except to note that the headline of his story decries the complete lack of a police response, not the incident itself.)

        You, on the other hand, most definitely slandered him at the meeting when you called him a pedophile. While I don’t want to advise Dan on his legal options — because I am not an attorney — I think it’s important for you to understand that you have opened yourself up to a lawsuit. The First Amendment does not give you the right to accuse someone, IN PUBLIC, of a heinous crime without offering up a single shred of evidence.

        It seems to me that he has an airtight case against you, should he want to pursue it.

        A very wise man once said: “It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”

        Food for thought.

  • h8kids

    Kids are dumb. Behold, the power of the internet!

  • Weeowww

    Clearly piece of shit parents. I can't stand behavior like that or the lack of responsibility taken by the parents for their kids' actions. I would be appalled if my child acted in such a way, but it would never happen in the first place because I would never raise my child in such a way to even think acting like that is okay, and they surely would not be bragging about it on facebook. And for parents to stick up for their kids' actions and attempt to defend them is ridiculous. I 'd do as much snooping around as possible to find these little bastards who caused property damage, acted like a bunch of idiots, and were totally disrespectful to those around them.

  • Lou1

  • Anonymous

    1 – Great job Dan at exposing the carnage done by these vandals! Prank or not, these teens show a severe lack of respect for people and their property.

    2 – Posting photos and names of the criminals commiting crimes is not illegal, though the faces and names of the minors should've been blurred out, while the older vandals are fair game. Still, it's not an illegal act to reveal them, since media agencies do it for ethical reasons, but there is no law stating a need for a release from the parent or guardian, especially in the context of editorials and news articles, which is what the news is.

    3 – The only illegal act seen so far is the slander and libel of Cavanagh's name as people label him a pedophile and stalker for taking photos of teens comitting crimes in the open public. There's a difference between following kids to see what crime they're doing and following kids home from school for no reason.

    4 – Watch parents next year cry if the police to show up and respond with rubber bullets, fire hoses and tear gas, claiming the police "used excessive force!"

    5- The parents should be thanking their lucky stars the teens didn't attack someone with a short fuse and a hidden firearm! The parents should be thankful the officers who did show up didn't call for backup!

    6 – Yeah eggs are harmless, because there's no way an eggshell shard could ever accidentally blind someone or cause a car to suddenly swerve out of control because a driver is suddenly-blinded. Then let's go with the fact that it was more than just shaving cream-filled balloons and eggs being thrown!

    7 – No one cares about traditions for all those so-called parents! So you did it as a child… are you still doing it? Grow up!

    • Realist State

      Excellent points.

      It's also a very weak arguement to say "…we did the same thing when we were their age…".

      When we were kids, I know my folks never condone the wasting of food, much willful vandalism. Along with the fact that I was more afraid of them finding out than the police.

      Put it this way, if I was in the right, my parents were my biggest advocate. If I was in the wrong (as these kids clearly were), God help me!

    if a few black kids had come in the neighbor hood or even did this by the projects,the very same people,kids and parents would be saying things that can't even be repeated here.this crap is not ok ,it sucks and the kids involved are a bunch of spoiled little brats that show no kindness to the rest of their peers. they are "the cool kids",the popular asswipes we all hated growing up.their parents should be punishing them but instead they are playing the victim. my kid wanted to go to the avenue halloween-guess what

    ? no f'ng way. and i am not pretending to be parent of the year,the fact that they wanted to go upset me because i feel they knew what was going on.

    the kids don't care because the parents don't care.

    You did a fantastic job! Way to stick to your guns, expose the hooligans, the hooligan parents where they learn this low manner, and the Police, who really were the culprits in not diffusing the situation in real time. Folks, this is reality, and first of all, parents childhood conduct does not make what these kids did okay, even if it was eggs and shaving cream (which is was not). It is understandable that this woman is acting in the way she is, but all she will end up doing is taking the fall and exposing herself in many negative ways. She should own up to her ethical failings, as well as her children's ethical failings.

    Danny, you did that community a great service. Sometimes, you have to force change through tough love…However, I think you could have summoned more attention during the meeting by combatting their accusations and slander critically…Their lack of intellect, coupled with videotaping left so many holes that you could have wholeheartedly exposed the true problem…"if you don't like it, move out" "Be quiet?" "What are you doing with those photos?"

    Best of luck and thank you!

  • Old Beach Rat

    I moved from the beach in 1974, I was born there, and I am still proud to say that I came from there. Egging and socks filled with Chalk were common issues on halloween night even then. But I also remember trick or treating from noon till the sun went down, then the teens came out, and we the young hid and ran. No where else I have lived do neighbors know each other so well. Yes, they went overboard it appears, and the parents need to address it, but please leave the beach problems to the beach. What many here complain about, is what I remember as being unique and wonderful.

    • Union

      We would leave the "beach" problems to the "beach" but sadly, those little criminals made it all of our problems when they attacked city property. You live in NYC, not a private community. GB needs to come into the 21st century. Your 19th century ways dont apply anymore.

        I have thought the same thing about many ethnic groups. You see, as a history buff I cannot give any group a free pass. I was just asking a question. Must I pander to one group because they may have the ability to intimidate me?

        I am glad you are “Proud2bIrish.” Nothing wrong with that. I am just honest enough to understand that in this country of ours, there are people whose children do not throw things on Halloween, and they may be Catholic, or (said in a hushed voice) Protestant. Unfortunately, GB is an ethnic enclave, so the residents should accept that problems there reflect on the ethnicity that otherwise enjoys their enclave. Have a nice thanksgiving.

    I personally don't believe someone should be allowed to show someone's facebook information to the world. The boys who posted that information on facebook did so with the intention that only "friends" could see. Regardless of whether they are guilty or not, I do not believe it ethical that a grown man should be allowed to show the information of a minor that he acquired under a public domain name, only intended for friends to see, to the rest of the world. I understand the legalities of the matter, and I understand that Facebook is a public social network, but it doesn't justify the morality of the situation.

    It's a good thing you folks live in an anti-individual freedom state. I live in a state that is a shall issue state. My state allows its law-abiding citizens to carry handguns, so long as they pass a background check. Throwing eggs and other non-damaging items at property, so that it doesn't cause any lasting damage, is considered "kids being kids" but the parents here understand that it is still wrong and they would discipline their kids if they found them doing that.

    That being said, throwing anything at a person, especially done by a large group of savages, and you are likely to get a gun pointed right at you. The best outcome would be the sight of the gun would cause you to turn and run, the worse would be getting shot. Throwing rocks or bricks at a person, at least where I live, would be looked upon as aggravated battery and since it can easily cause serious bodily harm or death, a shooter would be justified in using deadly force to protect themselves. If it is an egg, it would depend on a lot of things. In my state, a few years ago, and just recently down south, kids have been killed for throwing eggs. So far, it seems to be that the shooters just lost it, none have tried to argue heat of the moment, thought it was a rock, etc..

    You folks in NYC need to keep a leash on your animals if they are truly this wild. You never know when they might go out of the occupied territory into freedom land (ie: states where citizens can carry guns in public for protection). They could figure that throwing rocks and bricks AT PEOPLE in Wyoming with a friend or relative would be a fun thing to do, but they could easily end up getting shot…and the shooter would likely be justified in protecting themselves.

    I can’t believe that the parents of these little monsters are attacking the blogger for posting photographs of their kids, instead of dealing with their children’s behavior. I especially love the woman whining about “there’s no compassion!” How much compassion should we have for criminals who get caught committinmg their crimes on tape? How much compassion did the kids show their victims? Quit whining about the fact that your kids got caught, and start raising them better. They should be facing criminal prosecution, the public embarrassment of getting published on an obscure blog is pretty mild compared to the charges of assault and vandalism they should be facing. You should all get down on your knees and thank this blogger for the wake up call he provided you.

    Oh, and your kids are ugly and look stupid.

    MICHAEL GIUESPPE, those bus windows cost over $4,000 EACH to replace. Breaking one of them would be Criminal Mischief, a CLASS D Felony, as any patrol officer or lawyer can tell you (or as you can read for yourself). Thats FIVE YEARS IN PRISON.


    Hope neither you nor your friends (who would all be guilty if they participated in the mischief) aren’t past your 15th birthdays, my man.

    Otherwise, somebody — or a lot of kids — could be going to PRISON. (Of course, right now, I imagine everybody’s down at the precinct, giving it up to save themselves.)

  • PaulaNYC

    Those bus windows cost over $4,000 to replace. So, breaking one would be criminal mischief, a Class D felony in NYS for which the punishment is FIVE YEARS in prison. (Juvenile penalties are less, but at least one year in a juvenile correction facility.)

    Now that the police are involved, I’m sure everyone will be at the local precinct pointing fingers to avoid serving time.

    This story has now gone international. What this author has done is bring these young adults and teenagers to light to not only the local area, state or country but to the world.

    The “kids” are not the only ones on trial here as many commenters’ have forgotten the lack of positive police involvement.

    In regard to the privacy… what privacy? The facebook accounts were captured because they were made available to the public. They are in the public domain. If the “youths” and their parents wanted this to remain private then tough shit. The parents should have more control over the internet as it is a far more scary and dangerous world than the uneducated care to recognise. If the youths did not want their crimes to be spread about and their names shadowed for another 5 years branding them as trouble makers…hindsight is a wonderful thing.

    Photographic material of a young adult or teenager is no different than that as being taken of an adult by another adult. It is not paedophilia, it is not illegal but it is infact perfectly legal and public domain. As it has been proven these people do not care who views their face online because otherwise they would have set their own FB profiles to private. I do find it funny how suddenly their parents are taking a sudden vast interest regarding this when they didn’t care before.

    To the parents and “kids” — Tough Shit you anti-social bastards. Think about the repercussions before you act.

    Personally I’d have shot one of the little fuckers if they damaged my property. I do believe in some states that is legal.

    I just watched you’re little “townhall” meeting. What a joke, the loud mouth bus driver and the Guido that made the early exit. Do yourselves a favor, start monitoring your kids! You people sound like a bunch inbred mountain folk! Your children’s actions should be exploited! What do you suggest, sweeping it under the rug. According to your local loud mouth bus driver, and “The Situation” SR. Nobody should see what kind of children you are raising.

    And on another note for loud mouth bus driver lady…. NO! WE DID NOT “ALL” THROW EGGS! Some of us were raised to know better, and if we were caught doing shit like that, our ass would be in a sling! So speak for yourself lady!

    Short of a global crime across the entire planet or at least spanning every thing these people had ever seen in every place they went to destroy or attempt to murder them at all times that the police did not respond to; which would of course require an entire planet to know their names or at least large cities. I have no idea why the Police or 911 would not have attempted to stop them or arrest them unless there was some 911 involved as well. 911 or the Police are too powerful and important to sit by while something like that happens normally.

    This is has been happening in GB for years but this was the worst. I’ve been the victim of egg attacks my self in the past while in car service. What disturbs me more is the lack of police response. The 61 pct really dropped the ball on this one, but I shouldn’t be surprised, they’re a lazy bunch. It’s frightening. Every one should call 311 and make a complaint. It will be referred to Chief Fox. Who ever the CO is at the 61 should be reprimanded for not having a plan in place.

  • BklynGal

    Let’s just call this what it was: “The 2010 GB Halloween Teen Riot” just another in the long line of Halloween behavior that for some unknown reason is allowed to continue year in and year out.

    10 years ago eggs and shaving cream, this year potatoes and rocks lobbed at buses, police cars and people, next year perhaps Property Meeting Ranter Renee can lead a parental line on the Avenue to prevent it from escalating further.

    This is disgusting. What has happened to parenting in this country. When I was growing up, you HOPED your parents didn’t catch you doing anything bad. Now, these uneducated parents don’t even attempt to educate or culture their children. Instead, they attack someone who is bringing the truth to light — the fact that this young generation, fueled by Rap, TV and video games, couldn’t be trusted to tie their shoelaces correctly.

    Cheers to Mr. Cavanaugh for showing how uncivil, uneducated and — worse of all! — apathetic these kids and their parents are. Thank God I don’t live in that sh**hole!

    Look at the faces of those kids, not one bright mind in the bunch. I mean, are any of these kids going to be doing anything else with their lives but living in that same area, working construction or pumping gas? I don’t think so. Some of them look bloated, probably all that steroid fast food their parents feed them.

    First, WTF are we paying for police for, if they can’t be bothered to show up! This is an outrage! And second, if they won’t show up when you need them, I recommend that everyone start carrying mace, a slingshot, or a blade – we have literally no other choice.

    When I lived in the 34th Precinct near Broadway and Dyckman, the cops would NEVER show up when you needed them; it was a joke! I’m fully convinced, at least in the 34th, that they’re all “on the take,” and probably actually scared of drug dealers who blare music all night every night.

    What type of drunken idiot names their child “maverick”

    • Bitchita

      Gerritsen Beach white trash idiots name their children “Maverick”.

    • Anthony

      Maverick is a type of bird. Just like people name their children after seasons, or flowers, or virtues… What type of idiot poses that question?

      • me

        A maverick isn’t a bird. It’s a type of cow that hasn’t been branded yet. A mallard is a type of bird. But your point seems to be that his parents wanted their son to have the qualities of either a cow or a duck. Well, that explains everything. they hope their son will either be a brainless fat slob or a quacking moron (by your reasoning).
        oh and if you want to try an be a smart ass with what a maverick is, at least find out what the word means

        • Anthony

          I confused a Maverick with a Macaw, not a Mallard. I’d rather be a smart ass then a pretentiously dogmatic douche bag. Sorry the entire world isn’t full of “exceptionally Intelligent” people such as yourself.

          • Anthony

            I wouldn’t use a word if I didn’t understand it, but it’s not a matter of “impressing” people. Having an expanded vocabulary serves to better define a statement and get a point across.

          • lion

            What does dogmatic mean? because it doesn’t make ant sense in your post. Also you thought a maverick was a bird

        • Anthony

          By the way, you ever hear the saying, “don’t judge a book by it’s cover?” You’re ridiculing Maverick & his parents for him having a “stupid” name, yet you’re the moronic cock bag jumping to conclusions because of a name…

          • Bitchita

            Maverick was one of the little angels up on the avenue flinging everything they could get their hands on at innocent people passing by, there is no jumping to any conclusions. Dumb name, dumb funtime activity. Obviously you are the moronic cock bag.

          • Anthony

            Yes… it is jumping to conclusions. Did you actually SEE Maverick throw anything? And how is calling a person dumb because of their name NOT jumping to conclusions? A name has nothing to do with a person’s intelligence.

          • lim

            actually i’m judging maverick by his actions. I’m judging his parents by their drunken behavior that can be witnessed as soon as it gets warm. just watch the parade of coolers going down seba to kiddie beach.

  • Julian

    I just read the first couple hundred comments of the post, and wanted to respond (I haven’t got enough time for the rest).

    First, many people seem to think that if teens have incorrect grammer/spelling on their facebook pages that’s because they’re incapable of spelling correctly. That is almost never the case. They just don’t care, and write in a slang kind of language they’re used to. (No teacher to correct them on facebook :-P)

    Another thing I notice is many people having a “If you do X to me, well I’ll do X to you and see how you like it.” These people are trying to be reasonable adults. WTF. You think you can teach teens a sense of justice with the “an eye for an eye” approach? Good luck with that.

    Something really frightening is being described in this blogpost, but it’s not the teens. (Ok, when they throw rocks and bricks, that’s too much, but still). It’s the police not showing up. That is a real horrible failure, I’d be upset with that; the teens? – not so much.

    Finally, lots of people seem to be thinking really badly about this “future” generation. But come on, who hasn’t done some kind of shit as a teen? If teens wouldn’t break their limits from time to time, it would be sad. Also, impossible. (No matter the parenting. From personal experience, I’d even say the stricter the parents, the likelier the teens to go really bad on occasion).

    I would start worrying if they started setting cars on fire, or had serious alcohol problems, but throwing eggs/potatoes and creaming cars on halloween? Come on.

  • Anonymous

    I live in the midwest, and I could never imagine something like this happening, the worst we ever did on halloween was tp some trees in somebody’s yard.

    And the kids today don’t run the streets on halloween around here, except for the high schoolers who, usually go to a party and keep to themselves.

    And if something like this did, happen and the cops were called every one of those kids would probably have been beaten or hit with mace by the police, and then when the cops got them to their parents they’d be beaten again.

    It seems the further east/west you get away from the heartland the worse it gets.

    It’s funny though you never see this stuff happening in states, where people are allowed to carry guns, or have a largely conservative population.

    and I’m not blaming liberals for this, because I don’t think the parents in this instance even know how to vote.

    but I think a conservative background does instill a bit more moral fiber into the younger generations.

    • Realist State

      This has got to be the most asinine comment in a sea of ignorant comments.

      First off, to polarize this incident as a “heartland” versus urban east/west coast is not only stupid, but blatantly un-American. And if you don’t think anything like this happens in the midwest, why not look up “school shootings in the United States”, and count up the number incidents that occur in your self-described “heartland”. Maybe then you’ll admit that your kids are no different than these kids. The difference is these were caught before any serious damage or injury occurred.

      Secondly, why drag politics into this? You have no idea what the politics of the parents are (except for your pre-concieved bias that everyone in New York is a liberal). And whether a liberal or conservative makes a better parent is a matter of opinion. Charles Whitman, former Marine, and from a conservative Christian family became the Texas Tower shooter.

      Remember the old saying about people that “…live in glass houses…”!

    How sad. I grew up near GB in the 1950’s-60’s. I am ashamed of my people. But since then, I got a Ph.D., own property in 3 states, have travelled extensively in Europe and elsewhere. But my parents were also educated and expected something of me. O well.

  • Nnnnn

    OMG will you give all us kids a break already! We are having fun ONE day out of the WHOLE year. Your gunna tell me you NEVER, not once, did this when you were kids? Like really? also its facebook, you don’t need to write the right way. & maybe our parents could be trick or treating with our siblings, while we are doing this? So chill will youuu.

    • If The Shoe Fits...

      You weren’t having fun with EACH OTHER, you were attacking innocent people in broad daylight, and damaging private and public property. You were having fun at someone else’s expense.

      You’re right, you don’t need to write the right way, because you don’t want to be confused for someone intelligent. People are only responding to the message YOU send. If you write like you’re illiterate, and you act like you have no regard for other people, they are going to respond accordingly.

      And yes, your parents could have been out trick or treating with siblings, but now that they know what kind of things you were doing (or maybe they don’t…maybe you think you got away with it), the fact remains:

      1) You aren’t apologizing to the hundreds of people who don’t appreciate your brand of fun, (Give you a break? If you were photographed damaging property or assaulting someone, you should be made to pay restitution, community service. Your “fun” came at a price to other people.) You think it’s ok. If your parents know what you were doing, and you obviously, still have access to a computer and are using it to cyber-roll your eyes at everyone, then clearly, they haven’t taught you very much.

      2) You’re not reading the hundreds of posts, not EVERYONE damaged property and assaulted people when they were kids, and believe it or not, some people don’t like getting hit with stuff. I’m sure the bus driver who got hit with the egg didn’t appreciate the “fun”.

      Clearly, if Dan had just sent this to parents, nothing would have happened or changed. He sent a message: If you insist on wreaking havoc in public, people will know. Dan also takes photos of all sorts of activities, and has done a lot of good for the community.

      Your attitude is exactly what people are complaining about. If you had said, “Hey, we were having fun and had no idea people would get this upset, I’m sorry to have helped cause the problem, and I’m sorry this made my parents and the community look bad..” there’d be some sympathy for the kids.

      But the fact that you even have computer privileges and and are not mature enough to understand what people are upset about, shows you really just don’t “get it”. Hopefully, you won’t cause your family or community any more embarrassment as you get older.

  • Nikki

    Thats really sad. I live there and its such a nice neighborhood usually. Maybe the parents of these kids need to teach their kids how to have fun without destroying property and hurting people.

    Show this report on the news about teens attacking people with object. Now I’m pretty sure that attacking another person with any object is Illegal. yes in my teenage years friends and I played around by throwing eggs, sparying shaving cream at eachother. The only difference is we know who was playing the game. We’ed go to a local park and make teams. Not going out and attacking people. Some teens may say they were just having fun but they forget its alway fun untill someone get hurt. If parent don’t act as parents then they shouldn’t get upset when someone else steps in to do something about their children. If they only act as parents 50 % of the time and a friend 50% of the time children will never learn to become adults/parent themselves. They will become those in life that will hurt or kill someone for an acts like spilling their drinks, stepping on their shoes, or just talking to their girl/boy-friend. Parents I ask that you all start acting like Parents 100% of the time. You can be your childrens friend when your children become well-rounded Adults that know the differents between right and wrong. Its never been just as simple as black and white. They need to learn about that big gray area in life before someone takes their lives.

  • Casual Reader

    You know, come to think of it, if I was being attacked in my car, and once attempting to leave by rocks, potatoes, and other projectiles, I would certainly feel like my safety and well-being were being threatened. I would imagine someone owning a firearm, feeling the same, might just feel justified in returning fire upon the kids. It would be a shame if one of them were killed in the process because they didn’t understand the results and implications of their attacks. Justify whatever you like on the part of “minors just trying to have fun,” the tune changes when one ends up dead for legitimate self defense reasons.

    I’m soooo glad that we moved out of GB eight years ago! The neighborhood has changed so much. Years ago it was nice growing up as a child everyone knew everyone, after reading all the posts. I think it’s disgusting what they did. It’s one thing to have fun on halloween but to throw eggs at old people & with children is dead wrong! I know this happened in Oct but I came acrossed this now, I’m sad I did. It breaks my heart to read GB in going down the tubs. I guess it was a great thing why we moved after all! Thank god we did…

      OMG! We are all soooooo glad that you moved too! Everyone has been saying it ever since you did!

Don’t worry your little heart about it, lol, we are not going down the ‘tubs’. But it was a great thing that you moved, thank G-d you did!

    If the parents told their children that harassing people and attacking people was wrong, something might change.

    Instead the parents show up at the property meeting and redirect/deflect blame onto the person who runs the site and had evidence of their misdeeds, while minimizing their kids behavior.

    Now there is a thread that a business owner is being systematically harassed by neighborhood kids and that the neighborhood could use some business on the Avenue.

    Who would open up anything on that avenue with the GB parent authorized pack of maruders?

  • Matthew's Bestfriend

    I hate how everyone bombs on GB, like channel 11 news there saying kids from GB are going to be criminals. NO WE WE ARE NOT GOING TO BE CRIMINALS, its one day out the year we kids ACTUALLY have fun . & other people saying
    where is the parents and stuff, That bothers me. Some parents we’re actually checking up on their kids, Renee CUullen was checking up on matthew because i was with him. I understand potatoes and everything else is terrible. Number one, i bet most of you when you were younger threw egss & used shaving cream. Number two, Matthew Cullen is my bestfriend!! i was with him the whole day, he didnt do that stuff. If you saw the meeting video @ St.James, Renee is right. He did lie to act like a big shot which is understandable for being the youngest over 5 other brothers. He’s just trying to act tough & cool. But, he didnt do that stuff, i’m his bestfriend who he was with all day BECAUSE THE NEXT DAY I HAD BACK SURGERY. Danny who takes the pictures shouldn’t have the right to hide in bushes & take picture of us kids. Or go on our facebooks just to repost it. Also i DIDN’T THROW ONE SINGLE EGG. but since he posted other peoples statuses that i “liked” my name is now all over the internet, thanks to Danny. Hope your proud of yourself.

    Also whoever is calling GB “WHITE TRASH” like are you serious? EVeryone who sees this website or stuff on the news only sees the worst of us. If you really lived in GB & actually knew what we go through you would understand. EVeryone treats eachother like family. Also we do GREAT WONDERFUL THINGS. AT the knights for the pool tornament, we raise money for breast cancer. I actually sit outside selling stuff for 6 hrs just so we can get enough money. we raise over atleast $1,000. I know this because my mom & grandma & grandpa are apart of the knights. Also when are have the Dan Foster 5k run, we raise money. We do sooo many things for charity & everyone single one of you who is saying we’re white trash, think of both sides of the story before you go judging us. We arent perfect but you know what we’re not terrible people. Everyone judges us from 1 single day of the year, but what about the other things we do, huh?

    I just read the article in the New York Times about this website and the controversy sparked by the Halloween coverage. Daniel, when you have some spare time you may enjoy seeing your exact situation as it was portrayed more than 100 years ago by the playwright Henrik Ibsen. YOU are the Dr. Stockmann character in the play “The Enemy of the People”, the only honest,moral, courageous man in a small town, who exposed an ugly secret of that town and was nearly destroyed for doing so. It’s uncanny (and deeply unsettling!) how your experience replicates that of Dr. Stockmann.

    I especially admire your true bravery in pursuing this in the face of the clear evidence of the recklessly violent nature of these “kids”. (Incidentally, I hated it when, during the O.J. Simpson trial, the media referred to him just as “O.J”– how disgusting to choose a sweet, friendly way to refer to a murderer! Similarly, I despise dismissing this as the act of “kids”. The deeds you describe are the work of truly depraved savages, and any term that downplays that fact should not be used.)

    Anyway, I salute you! If “real reporters” had a tenth of the guts and enterprise you do, maybe newspaper circulation wouldn’t have suffered the steep decline that it has.

On the forth of July you hope your place don’t burn down,your good neighbors are envious and jealous of anyone who might be a little better off than they are,so your car,boat,property are subject to malicious damage by your Good Neighbors or their Kids.Yep a Family Place. Give me a Bleep Break Please.!

    This is so Typical of the White Getto Known as The Beach…NO POLICE SHOWED UP TO RESPOND. Let’s let that sink in. After possibly dozens or more 911 calls over a two to three hour period NO ONE SHOWED UP…Many of These Kids are Sons of Cops…Get It. One Time I made a Right off Allen Ave on Celeste Ct Half way up the block two kids approx 5 to 6 years old on the sidewalk unsupervised threw small rocks hitting my car.So I stopped asked them where they live they pointed,so I went to the Door and asked the mother whats going on here? This is what I was told
