Teen shouting obscenities from car

Original post made by Pleasanton Valley Resident, Pleasanton Valley, on Sep 20, 2010

Happened twice to us this week - teen boys shouting obscenities at us from cars (presumably on their way home from Amador High) in the afternoon as we (my two elementary school-age children and I) were walking along Black Avenue. Wondering if this has happened to anyone else....

Why would it matter if it happened to anyone else? Next time it happens, write down the license plate and call Pleasanton Police.

Not to me, but one time, the ice cream fell off my cone and some teenagers laughed.

I witnessed that a few times at the Pleasanton driving range. Dumb kids driving by on Valley shouting out obscenities. Just a couple of losers who will end up dead on the streets or in prison sooner or later. Pity.

This is likely a couple of lost kids that need help.
Not sure what the police can do about poor behaviour, even if the license plate is noted down as "??" suggests.

Lost kids that need help? Please, these are a couple of kids that need to be taken out to the woodshed and have their butts kicked. If they do it again, kick em harder.

Ya spike0 No Kidding!

And there's so much nastiness within the adult "community of character" that the weekly needs to use capcha now.

I am on two other community forums and I don't see this constant nastiness I see here.

Interesting how much fear you leftists have of the Tea Party that you blame everything on these grassroots patriots. Just like it's unproductive that Osama blames Bush for all his inadequacies, blaming the Tea Party for all your problems is tilting at the wrong windmills.

By the way, 'How Funny!' where are your kids and what are they up to? Does your nanny (state) raise them or do you?

Lol I don't think shouting out of a car is setting a teenager up for death. I'm 29 and when I was a teenager in Pleasanton, my friends and i use to drive through Castlewood and scream "4!" out the windows. Do the adult thing, ignore it and move on.

Most golfers will ignore you anyway when you yell "4!". If you were smart enough to yell "Fore!", then you might get some golfers' attention. You obviously were one of those losers in life who needed attention. Pity.

Seriously? we are upset or shocked or frightened because some kids yelled bad words out a car window? Teenagers being rude? This is unheard of! Call the police! Lock down the school! The sky is falling the sky is falling! Give me a break you guys.

Those kids that do that are probably the same kids that start drama at school. Just let the police know and they'll watch for it. Or the school.

Don't bother the police they have enough to do.

Kids will be kids! It may be offensive, but certainly not a crime. Thank your lucky stars that they were only shouting bad words, in some towns it would have been bullets!

Relax and take that as an opportunity to teach your own children a lesson. They will hear bad language when they get to middle school.

Nothing new there. Sometimes i just can't stand high school because of these losers. It's not a huge issue obviously, and i doubt the police can really do anything. Kind of a waste of time calling them about it. Just some immature teenagers. Nothing new.

Send these losers to Singapore so they get some caning. That will teach them to behave real quick.

My gosh, if you don't know by now that teens love to shock adults with bad language, well...they do! Dumb. I bet they loved your angry expression. Anyone ever been "mooned" by teens in a passing car? Now that's offensive!

Devon - very curious how you tell the difference between someone yelling "4" and someone yelling "fore"?

And yes, yelling "4" or "fore" to golfers is funny to a kid and to some "adults" that do it while drinking on their patios that line golf courses.
