  1. That’s horrible! In broad daylight. Sounds like gang BS. We need to find out who these punks are and chase out of town. Hope the kid is alright! That’s traumatizing 🙁

  2. This is HORRIBLE! The absence of this type of thing is a good part of the reason why many people move to this great community!

    I REALLY hope these idiots ARE in their ‘early 20’s’ as the article suggests, as they would not be ‘youth offenders’ and would be fully prosecuted for battery. Ganging up with 4 adults on one kid, we definitely don’t need losers like that in town. My condolences to the teenager involved, I hope he is okay.
