So these middle-class kids in upstate New York break into a nice home and throw a keg party with 300 of their closest friends. In the process they trash the place. Then most of them post pics and vids on Facebook bragging about the bitchen good time they had.
Surprise, surprise surprise, the owner of the property (a former NFL player) is a leetle bit upset. But when he posts the Vandals and Visigoths’ selfies on a website asking them to come clean up and repair the damage, the kids’ parents threaten to sue him. So he goes to the cops instead.
Via Hot Air:
Six arrested, more than 300 to go. But it’s a start for Rensselaer County Sheriff’s Investigators who are trying to put a dent in the case of a huge, underage drinking party at a former NFL player’s home.
Cameras weren’t allowed in the courtroom. But Thursday night, the first six to turn themselves in faced a judge and reality.
Police say 19 year old Seth Hawk, 20 year old Juan Santana, 21 year old Cody Blain, 18 year olds Meghan Loiselle and Keely Sullivan and 17 year old Mackenzie Grogan were the main players in the giant underage drinking party at Brian Holloway’s Upstate New York home. …
The charges read Thursday night range from burglary, to grand larceny, to criminal trespass.
What happened at court is only the beginning. Sheriff’s investigators say they’ve identified 238 others who were at the party. They’re urging that they turn themselves in. And they’re asking for a little help from the parents.
It’s a long investigation. But part of it made simpler, because of the messages and the pictures the partiers put out on social media.
I can hear their high-priced attorneys (no dump truck public defenders for these children of real privilege) already:
“Your honor, I ask for a dismissal in the interests of justice because my client is a good student who will never get into an Ivy League college with a criminal conviction on his record. This was just a youthful indiscretion.”
Stupid kids. They should have called themselves “Occupy Albany” and said it was a protest. Then they could brag about it on their college applications.
