No congratulations on you, because I know my situation wasn't an isolated incident and your teaching style and the millions of other teachers that adopt that same attitude breed this cesspool.

And yet, with the utter contempt for good manners dripping from your every other word, you still display the audacity to criticize me as "disrespectful?"

You use that word when it suits you -- you don't care for the way I sort my discussion, so you declare it "disrespectful" to get me to drop it. The difference is that I can demonstrate why it is helpful to all involved, while you're just saying you don't like it.

See where this is going? You're the kind of person that pretends to build a case against authority figures because they're poaching on your turf. You continually try to mandate and dictate the terms of discussion, you state your opinions as facts despite lacking evidence, and you take the tone that anyone who disagrees is ignorant.

The only reason you don't like the dictator is because you want the job. Prosecution rests.

Some kids, some people even, are pretty nasty to other people. That's just the way things are and the way they have always been, things have not suddenly degenerated. If anything they're getting better.

This. Stop pretending like this is a recent problem, or has everyone in History been huggy-bunch nice to one another and only in the last ten years have there been war, genocide, abuse, rape, and general callousness?

Sure, there's some of that at play here. Due to the greatly increased speed of information, we're better able to see the problem, which makes the problem appear bigger.

But we can surely also recognize that kids can also use that faster stream of information (and the larger audience it promises them) to get into larger trouble. It's not that kids are different. It's that parents are different and that the tools available to kids are vastly different.

Supertegwyn:
If my child did that, I would beat them to a pulp.

That is disgusting, and those little shits need a fist in their face.

You'd psychical abuse someone because they verbally abused another? Hypocrisy isn't a good thing and neither is hurting people. You're no better than the children that harassed the poor woman if you believe violence is the solution.

OT: I saw this on the news. Quite sad. But I think this also demonstrates the better side of humanity; that fund to give her a holiday has received much more support than the number of people who bullied her. It's another case of the vocal minority attempting to overshadow the better majority - but it shan't happen! :D

Also this.

Basically, the kids in the video are assholes and the OP thinks his/her generation is superior simply because he/she was born into it. Not much more to say.

That's not true, he thinks his generation is superior because it is. The current generation of kids is growing up dehumanized by remote communication. Soon, the little bastards won't even know how to talk to another human being face to face. Those kids in that video are sociopathic, and thats the fucking norm for their age group. Open your eyes.

Put forth some actual evidence instead of just pointing at some anecdotes and some theory you came up with. I'm not going to take you seriously otherwise.

Ashannon Blackthorn:

EDIT: Kinda strange the kids never saw that they were being recorded or thougth it would come back to haunt them. Are kids so used ot their gizmos they can;t fathom they can be used against them?

Kids are stupid, believe me.
When I was 14, me and my friends went to a completely new house, still inhabited and graffiti (more like lame tags) the shit out of it and signing our names..
And we weren't stupid kids, most of us had above average intelligence, of course we got caught and paid the price.

Dude do you do that to people that talk to you face to face? When your students speak to you in person do you go and dissect what they say sentence by sentence after they say it? No you don't. Ya know why? Cause it's annoying in person and twice annoying online.

Fancy you just assuming again, the same way you assume every question and protests your students must make must be about them trying to stall or get out of work. Boy I really hope none of them are having actual problems at home and go to you with it. You'd likely brush them off and tell them to deal with it later. See the problem? I too can make broad generalizations on you based upon our brief interaction online.

People are people. Just writing it off as the authority figures not having enough time to do the right thing is NOT okay. But go on believing that teaching kids not to question or challenge authority is okay. It's not like that led to things like the Nazis killing people or anything.

But clearly ya know the horrible experiences I've had as a child in the educational system is the exception not the rule, and since your a teacher treating all your little students with cold indifference instead of treating them like adults.... oh boy what a lie that was, every year school they faculty would lie and say they'd treat us like adults when they flat out never did. Yeah sir, I don't know much about being a teacher but I know plenty about dealing with people and even more about being a student getting fucked by the system.

Oh wait no, I'm sorry, I'm just a dictator. #Sarcasm

Krion_Vark:
I really hate this current generation that is growing up. They are mostly self entitled little shits.

People are saying every generation thinks less of the one after them, and to some extent that's true. Technology makes things easier, makes people lazier,etc.

I'm 30 years old, a disclaimer. I have a general disdain for today's youth also. I like to consider myself a pretty rational person, with opinions that have some basis on reality. I am sitting here wondering if my dislike of young people is instinctual, automatic without justification. However, I don't believe it is.

I believe that there are things going on at an unprecedented scale that makes young people today come up short. The single income family with the stay at home parent is a fairy tale now. They've been replaced by the single parent family and daycare. Who's raising these children?

Apparently, Steve Jobs is. Because single parents who cannot spend time with their children buy them things to make up for it. Gadgets that require no imagination and no intelligence, and will do anything you want if you can push a god damn button. Anything where you can't push a button and make it work instantly anymore, apparently isn't worth doing.

You know what I think? I don't think I'm off my nut, I think were on the brink of the collapse of western society. If noting else, I think the complete lack of civility, common sense and patience of young people is certainly setting them up to fail quite hard in the next couple decades.

Jaeke:
Good on Matt Lauer(?) for his comment to parents of the kids on T.V.

Oooh, what did he say?

Something along the lines of "I'm taking my time on national T.V. to adress to the parents of these little monsters that you have failed to raise them as human beings." or something like that.

The moral of the story is, only appoint a muscled, glistening Adonis as bus monitor.

...one that also shoots lasers.

There is also an Indiegogo going to give her a vaction and has already raised 100k of the wanted 5k.

As for discussion value what would you do if you were the parents to any of the kids involved.

they raised 200,000 dollars for her and the police has found the 4 of them.

she did not press charges against them.

people can be dicks sometimes and more so when they are in a group/clan.

I'd like to scream and swear about the current generation of kids, then i remember that it's my generation that raised them into what they are. This whole "everyone's the same, everyone's special" bullshit we were raised on surely hasn't done the next generation any favours.

They are actually up to over 500,000 now. It is crazy what people will do when they band together.

Ultratwinkie:

The best part is the kids are so afraid they had to get police officers to sit outside their houses. They can't even leave their home.

Should I feel bad for delighting in that knowledge?

Of course not, it would take quite a high horse to try and justify sympathy for those creatures.

MalkavianLunatic:
Parents these days, though-- not all of them, thankfully; some are actually behaving like parents instead of their kids' best buddy-- seem to think that it's perfectly fine to allow 'precious snowflake' to do whatever they want, whenever they want, to whoever they want. Spankings are now called 'abuse' and there doesn't seem to be any sense of discipline at all. Something like that isn't 'kids being kids' and I think the parents deserve a good slap themselves for letting their kids become the little monsters in that video. I mean, hell, there have been times when I've been outright cussed out by some little punkass kid.

I shudder to think of what's going to happen when the bubblewrap generation start having children en masse

I couldn't even finish the video. It's disgusting. This is one of my greatest fears, is not being able to properly raise my children and having this grow up.

I don't post often, but I just have to say...Justice is served. Granted, attacking the parents bank accounts is a bit too far, but that's 4chan for you, either an all out attack or nothing.

The best part is the kids are so afraid they had to get police officers to sit outside their houses. They can't even leave their home.

that news has made my day, I always love when the asshats in my generation get thought about consequences, as those are the only way to make not nice people act nice.

I'm laughing so hard. They don't deserve it, but it sure is fun to see people I couldn't care less about due to them being little shits getting the internets version of overkill. It just makes me smile.

What's that, a school bus? since all I hear are teenager voices and the video says "Bus monitor" I'm guessing I'm not mistaken.

What I'm trying to say here is, come on! those kids grew up in a priviliged country with a relatively easy life with no many challenges. Why would you do that to an old lady? what do you get for it? that's no way to treat a human being, I remember that I pranked teachers in high school years ago, but not emotionally harrasing them, and by the end of the day we were all friendly to each other (but I think the former is because of the place I grew up).

You go on a bus with ac installed on it, you're being protected on the way to your home, and when you arrive you have food on your table and a roof to shelter you. You don't have to worry about anything else.
And still, kids act like that? holy fuck, I think you guys should start some cultural exchange. Naughty kids like that get sent to my country and we send you guys, some of our (few) well behaved ones. It would be swell! you would get hard working individuals with well manners, and in the meantime we would teach your kids the basics of humility.
Having daily blackouts, rampant crime, paranoia, being supressed by the goverment, not having a stable economy... all that teaches you a good deal of humility, a thing this kids obviously don't have.

I'd just like to point out how there are a lot of people who are taking personal offense to the OP's "The current generation is full of self-entitled little shits" comment and decided to follow up on it by essentially saying something to the effect of "Well, screw you too, buddy!"

What I find funny is in the 60-something comments in this thread, nobody has actually garnered a defense on how the current generation isn't full of self-entitled little shits.

Make your case first, guys. Just a thought.

That's impossible to prove one way or the other. Saying that "No guys, this current generation isn't full of self-entitled little shits." is just as fucking stupid as saying "This whole generation is full of self-entitled little shits."

Classifying a generation, which is full of millions of different people, as one specific thing or another is the dumbest thing ever.

And also....

Ultratwinkie:
Guys. I have some news for you.

Since this was posted on facebook, they had their info posted real quick.

The internet now has their phone numbers and their names. It will be short work until they have the rest of their info.

These dumbshits didn't think posting this on facebook, a stockpile of all your information, was a bad idea.

So now not only did she get 100k, but those assholes will receive the Jesse Slaughter treatment.

They will basically be attacked on the internet, attacked in real life, and the info of their family will be hacked too. Bank accounts being emptied, Facebook being hacked, real life harassment, etc. The most unimaginable torture you will have to endure for the rest of your life because your info will be in the public eye.

EDIT: Guys, this is big. 4Chan has just formed a group called "Avenging the bus monitor." It really is going to be the end for these boys.

EDIT 2:

Okay, I found out the school district itself AND POLICE are looking into this. A full investigation will be under way. These kids are most likely looking at expulsion, which under US law would effectively bar them from an entire year of normal school. If they do get into a school, it WILL be a options school. These include Community day schools and continuation schools. So what does this mean? These little shits will be sent to a school specifically designed to be full of gang members, violent teens, and just plain dangerous kids. Most if not all of these teens have committed ACTUAL CRIMES. Its like Juvenile hall.

So basically these little shits wont last a day in that environment, let alone a year. This isn't considering the option that they may be barred from the district for life, which would make them middle school drop outs.

The internet, the police, and the entire school district is coming down on these kids. They can't leave their own home for fear of retaliation.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!?!?!?!?

In what world do these kids deserve to have their lives threatened and fearful that if they step outside, they'll be killed. What about their parents? Why do they deserve to lose their entire life's savings because their kids said some hurtful words? Yes, the kids are little chickenshits, yes how they acted was horrible, and yes they deserve to be punished. But no! They don't deserve any punishment besides being grounded and suspended for a little bit. They most certainly don't deserve to be killed or attacked or anything along those lines.

Fucking A the internet can suck. This "vigilante justice" is absolutely horseshit and everyone involved in threatening these kids should be fucking ashamed of themselves and the fact that what they're doing is no better (and probably worse) than what the kids did

What was the point? You said you would beat your child to a pulp if they behaved as those children did. Your reaction to verbal abuse is to cause physical harm to someone--as if that's any better than the crime you seek to punish. A rather childish and brutish attitude. Certainly unfit for developed society.

If we're correcting English, you started a sentence with "And."

I think it's both awesome that the old woman is getting what essentially is her retirement package...

...and that those little piles of redundant protoplasm will live the rest of their lives with the consequence of their actions hanging over their heads; and, if they somehow manage to die because of said actions...well...

...Okay, maybe a police investigation is a bit much... why not just let their parents get involved. It's their job anyway. Just sayin'.

Captcha: basket case

Well I agree this is unacceptable and the little fucker should be dealt with in a manner most fitting but I don't think it's fair to generalize instances like these as an entire generation. People have negative feelings about younger generations because the shit younger people do can now be put on the internet and often is. Up until like 2003 there really wasn't any way to share stupidity with the world but now that there is, people share it like there's no tomorrow and it gives younger people a bad image.

Jesus FUCK that is terrible. I know some shit people, but this is just being an ass for no reason. If she bitched at you for no reason, sure you'd say things like that around your friends, but you don't just harass the person for no reason.
Also, I just want to say that pretty much all kids are "Self Entitled Little Shits", just in a different way in each generation.

Is this how the world works now? "Get insulted/harassed and get loads of money for it"?

Righto, I'm off to sit with a bunch of pricks on a bus until they insult me then I'll tell my tragic story to the internet.

Don't get me wrong now, the kids are absolute wankers and deserve whatever they get but this is hardly a unique or isolated incident. Just a nice sob story for the media to run for a little bit.

Eternal Taros:
You're assuming that she was overweight because of some choice on her part, which may or may not be true.

It's always true. People do not get fat without eating.

Unless they've found a way to defy the laws of physics and make matter appear out of thin air without investing energy.

Eternal Taros:
Even if it were true, that's somehow grounds to be a dick

Saying a fat person is fat is not bullying. Much in the same a fattie who eats so horribly much they're in a wheelchair deserves to be regarded with the same contempt they show to themselves, whereas I'd never look down on someone who got into a traffic accident and then needs a wheelchair. The first situation is choice, the second is neccesity.

One thing that's just weird however is to first overeat horribly and disrespect yourself, and then expect others to respect you, while you don't. It doesn't work like that. People largely follow the example you set in treating yourself.

Eternal Taros:
It would be poetic justice if you turned into a gigantic fatass and people ostracized the fuck out of you.

There's zero chance of that, because I do sports and mind what I eat on a very basic level. Unless that discipline goes out the window I won't ever be overweight.

And if that discipline went, quite frankly I'd deserve being called fat and undisciplined don't you think? Because in that scenario it would be stating fact.

anthony87:
Is this how the world works now? "Get insulted/harassed and get loads of money for it"?

Not the world, but in the US it does.

Then again, in the US it also goes:
-Here's sick person X who can't afford life-saving surgery.
-If you ask why that person has to die in a rich country, you're a horrible big government bleeding' heart librul, socialist, satanist and what not
-If you ask people to give a few pennies so that maybe that person gets that surgery far too late, you're a saint.

Krion_Vark:

Compliment them on their ability to tell fat people from thin ones? Seriously, people expect to overeat every day untill they get huge and never hear a word about it?

Yes, it's pretty rude, but everybody responding above here is heavily overreacting.

Also it's kind of ironic to see internet trolls do exactly the same to kids who at least have the balls to troll people to their face. Hypocrisy much?

The sheer amount of fucking garbage that you spew out of your mouth on a regular basis is fucking appalling.

How do the people who take offense to this respond? They're defense to this amounts to a big "FUCK YOU, BUDDY!" like most assholes respond when they are insulted. That's what I found funny.

I haven't check this thread in a few days, but when I had, I did not see anyone try to say anything along the lines of "Well, I'm not a self-entitled little shit" or "I'm a part of this generation, and I would never do what these kids did" or anything else that might distinguish themselves from that insulting assessment of kids in the current generation.

You see what I was saying?

Seriously people? Are we really that surprised that a bunch on 9-14 year olds are being a bunch of assholes? Do you not remember that age? I was a little asshole and more than likely you were too.

Yes, these kids do deserve punishment for their actions because they were being disrespectful bastards. Yes, this lady deserves an apology and some sort of compensation because she did not deserve the treatment she got from those kids.

These kids do not deserve the backlash they are getting. The death threats on both them and their families is terrible, and if you are making those threats you are just as bad as they are.

To the parents of these children though,

I don't care how you punish your child, but you had better take them to this lady's house and have them apologize. Personally, if that was my child, not only would I make them apologize but I would have them do her a favour, such as cleaning up her yard or helping her clean up the house.

She did not deserve the treatment she got, and it's pretty obvious that your child does not know how to respect their elders. You might want to rethink your parenting techniques because you may be raising a little asshole that never changes.

I'm 17, so I think I'm still part of 'this' generation (right? I'm not old right? RIGHT??).

Either way, I'll defend myself.

I don't think I'm a self-entitled shit, even though I have more then enough reasons to be. I mean, my family is better off than some (then again I live in a small town so that's not saying much), I can afford most gaming consoles, I have a cell and a laptop. Shit, I even get to travel to exotic places at least once a year.

I'll admit, I'm guilty of being a asshole sometimes. I've said some things that have been cruel, I've done mean things and sometimes I'm just a terrible being.

What makes me different from those kids though? I would never even think of insulting a stranger, especially an elder. I've been taught that you should be polite to everyone you meet, especially your elders. I've been taught that you respect everyone you meet, and even though you may not like it, that's what you do. Why? Because you treat people how you want to be treated.

Do I go out of my way to help people every day? No, but I do, do the little things, like hold open a door, ask if they would like some help, lend a hand etc.

What these kids did was horrible and I'm embarrassed that they're part of my generation, but let's face it. Every generation has a set of terrible people, that can't be helped. But it's up to you to decided whether or not you're going to be like them or a decent human being.

I hope I made a decent defense and if not... well, this is giving me something to do at work, so yay!

I know you covered that this is your generation and all, but I just have to say:

Krion_Vark:
I really hate this current generation that is growing up. They are mostly self entitled little shits.

Just like every other generation of kids.

This shit was going on when I was a teen, too. The major difference is the dumbasses weren't filming it all the time because they didn't have iPhones. Even still, people recorded their antics on camcorders if available (A camcorder is kind of like an iPhone without calling capability, apps, wifi, or media capacities). Still, without broadband and Youtube, these videos didn't make it big.

There were jackasses like this at my school, at my brother's school, at my friends' schools, and I bet at your school. A lot of kids are raging little sociopaths. Nothing has changed. Crap like this happened when my dad was a kid, despite people telling you that back in the olden days kids respected their parents because otherwise they'd get the belt.

Speaking of....

Creator002:

Exactly this. It's situations like this that make me think that "the strap" should be brought back into the school systems, but I can see that being abused and it's a no-win situation.

Probably also doesn't hurt that it wouldn't do a damn thing in most circumstances. "In my day," a kid getting whooped for his misdeeds was incredibly likely to pay it forward. At BEST, it might teach them not to post the shit on Youtube, but that's basically the equivalent of ignoring the problem.

Which, being par for he course, I wouldn't be shocked if people really wanted. You know, not for the situation to be addressed, but for them to stop hearing about it so they can pretend the world is all rosie and such.

Corporal punishment is more about the illusion of control, rather than actual control.

I've been taught that you should be polite to everyone you meet, especially your elders. I've been taught that you respect everyone you meet, and even though you may not like it, that's what you do. Why? Because you treat people how you want to be treated.

Do I go out of my way to help people every day? No, but I do, do the little things, like hold open a door, ask if they would like some help, lend a hand etc.

What these kids did was horrible and I'm embarrassed that they're part of my generation, but let's face it. Every generation has a set of terrible people, that can't be helped. But it's up to you to decided whether or not you're going to be like them or a decent human being.

I hope I made a decent defense and if not... well, this is giving me something to do at work, so yay!

Well done, sir. Well done.

I believe every word, and you've certainly proven yourself to be so much more than most people here have in response to this act of shear stupidity.

You have my respect, fellow current-generation brother.
