Stories like this one make me wonder how the hell we got to this point.
Over the Labor Day weekend, police say, more than 300 teenagers broke into the vacation home of former NFL player near Albany, N.Y.

Holloway was away and the teens decided that his house and barn — located on a 197-acre piece of property — were perfect places to party.

They caused more than $20,000 worth of damage ... the miscreants "found it acceptable to trash the house and steal some of its contents. They broke windows, spray painted and made holes in the walls, urinated on the carpets, scarred the wood floors by dragging kegs across them. They left their party garbage behind."

The teens also thought it was a good idea to Tweet and Twitpic and Instagram about the party — and that helped enormously when Holloway launched a where he's posted many of the things that were shared on social media.

His site includes youngsters' names, or at least what they call themselves on social media. It's helping local police in their investigation.
It's also upsetting to the parents of those punks.
Parents of the hundreds of teens who broke into and destroyed former NFLer Brian Holloway’s upstate vacation home are threatening to sue him for outing their brats on Twitter...
Ignoring the fact that all he did was repost what the little shits posted in the first place.
“You would not believe the calls that have come in, threatening to firebomb me or hurt or sue me — any manner of things,” the stunned Holloway told The Post Thursday as he toiled away cleaning up the damage at his 200-acre spread in Rensselaer County.
Really? The parents are threatening him with bodily harm or more property damage, all because their little angels don't know right from wrong?
"Parents are upset with me when their child was in my house ... taking drugs, using roofies and drinking, and they're going to be upset with me?" he said in disbelief.

One other important note:

Holloway had been planning — and says he will still go ahead with — a "family reunion of champions" for active and retired military personnel and their families. It's set for Saturday and about 1,000 people are expected.
Those derelict parents and their misbehaving brats could lean a lot from Mr. Holloway. He's a better person than they and their misbegotten offspring will ever be.

I don't know whether to weep or drink heavily...
