@ Eric - Actually, egging is pretty damaging to a car's paint even only after a couple hours. For more, there are plenty of Internet threads on it, such as this one: http://www.finishing.com/230/16.shtml

Anonymous,are you kidding me ,14 or 15 at 10 o'clock,have you ever had any kids? Y eah right it's the parents fault because a kid threw an egg,lets jam up the court system some more & throw the parents in jail!!
Ted Geisel May 30, 2012 at 12:02 PM
No, I'm not kidding and yes I do have kids. They are a responsibility. I never once said that we should be the parents in jail. You fabricated that out of thin air Scott. Isn't that right? The parents should know where their kids are at that time of night. Not only for the communities safety but also for the safety of their children. There are a lot of sick people out there. Like Stephen said, eggs can be very damaging to a cars paint job. If some kid threw eggs at your car would you just laugh it off? They committed a crime, vandalism, and they deserve to be punished for it. The capacity of the court system, or lack there of, is never an excuse to allow someone to get away with a crime. To suggest otherwise makes me question your judgment. We all need to be held accountable for our actions no matter what the age.
scott d. awg May 30, 2012 at 12:29 PM
Wow, accountable I also have kids & I certainly wouldn't consider them "sick" for throwing an egg,no it's not right .You have no right to question any ones judgement from a key board statement & how about being accountable for your statements & stop hiding behind the" Anonymous" handle
Ted Geisel May 30, 2012 at 12:48 PM
Are we reading the same thing, Scott? I never called any kids "sick". Read it again. I said there are a lot of sick people out there that we should protect the kids from.
