With every kid having a cell phone today, it amazes me, actually makes me sad, that not one of them used it to call 911 instead of taking pictures. Just would have taken one decent person. Even at that party back in the 80’s I would have called the police if I had seen any type of assault going on. As a mom with two girls, one approaching the teen years you better bet I'll know where they are. But you're right so many parents just don't want to look “uncool” to their own kids. Or worse they just don't care.
Sounds like the movie “Uncle Buck”!
There is a family down the street with a son. It’s been quite a few years now, but he had been at a rave, and then he and his housemates and boyfriends/girlfriends went back to their house to continue the party. Although it sounded like a fairly restrained thing - just some more drinks and music.
Except some stanger at the rave was invited back to the house. After an hour of hanging out with his new “friends” the guy (twenties) went out to his car and came back with numerous weapons. Killed something like 6 kids. The son helped his girlfriend (and himself) escape out a bathroom window.
I forget what the psycho’s “reasoning” was. If he felt left out, or if he thought the raves were the devil’s work, etc. Seems he had been seen at previous raves.
What’s the saying - nothing good every happens after midnight?
