Nancy James

A Florida teenager who body slammed an elderly woman before tossing her into swimming pool at her apartment complex has been arrested.

The unidentified 16-year-old turned himself in to the Broward County Sheriff's Office in North Lauderdale, at about 5 p.m. on Monday.

Social media users erupted in outrage after video of the disturbing incident went viral on the Internet over the weekend.

The teen faces a single battery charge on an elderly person over 65. Many complain that he got off easy because of his race.

"How isn't this felonious assault?" asked a visibly upset Greg Gutfeld on Monday's episode of Fox News talk show The Five.

The incident occurred around 7 p.m. on Saturday when 68-year-old Nancy James and a friend, 45-year-old Mitchelle Lozano, went down to the pool area at the Player's Place Townhomes to ask a group of rowdy teens to turn the music down. James was walking her 2 pet poodles on leashes at the time of the incident.

One of the incorrigible youths -- a female -- can be heard telling others to "throw her in".

A teenager wearing a red shirt picked up the fragile woman, and either slipped and fell with her or he body slammed her on the concrete deck.

The thug then grabbed James by her shirt and one leg and dragged her across the deck as they both fell into the pool. One of James' terrified poodles also fell into the water while the other dog fled the pool area.

James and Lozano told police there were 200 youths at the pool party, according to a police report. The report added that James suffered minor bruises on her leg and shoulder.

Most of the teens and young adults fled the scene laughing by the time police arrived.

In an interview with WPLG, James stopped just short of calling the teen an animal.

"No one should ever, ever, ever, ever, have to go through that, you know?" James said. "It just shouldn't happen. The kid has not evolved yet into what you're supposed to be as a human being."

She told police she sits on the association board of the complex and she was responding to residents' complaints about the noise.

"I didn't even really get to walk in and this kid comes from behind, picks me up, drops me and drags me into the pool," James said.

"These young people are a little bit out of control," resident Anne Simmonds told Local 10 News. She said James was the first resident she met when she moved into the Player's Place Townhomes.

"She's an elder. You need to show respect for your elders. That's crazy. That's a horrible, horrible thing that happened to her," said Simmonds.

James initially refused to go the emergency room, but a neighbor told WPLG that she did eventually go to the ER and was released Monday.

    "The teen faces a single battery charge on an elderly person over 65. Many complain that he got off easy because of his race".
    Really ! They do know he's black , and not white. However it was a really disgusting thing that he did, very disrespectful , and if this is his mind frame at 16, he's in for a rude awakening.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    This was a disgrace! It wasn't cute, funny, or anything. People have no respect for one another and they in turn raise entitled youths who show no respect. Just sad!

    and I know SOMEONE is going to swear she was wrong for asking them to turn the music down. But I would too if it was too loud

  • NY_Chick

    And these children find this behavior acceptable??? Not acceptable, Where are their parents at? My children better not never act this way.

  • side_i

    Kids have no damn respect, if that was my mom, that little ninja would get f***ed up on site, no questions asked. My mom would also never approach a group of that many kids & try to regulate, especially kids in FL. I must admit though, I laughed mostly out of shock.

  • Rachel

    When I was little we respected our elders. This new generation dont give AF. She should have simply dialed 911. I bet she will think twice before she go running up on somebody, talking about y'all making too much noise and it's only 7pm.

  • Mbailey

    NOTHING in today's music, rhymes, video or entertainment culture is about respect. The whole idea is to respect no one, including yourself.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Watching that $h!t made me so embarrassed! Like how would he or anyone find that kind of stuff funny?? Ugh..............

  • Coy little wink

    She could sue his parents. I would.

  • Kanyade

    I would've called the police first before approaching anyone.

  • Pebbles

    When I watched the video ...I said: lawd! This simple behind boy just brought upon himself a simple assault & battery charge. ?
    people need to learn to keep thier hands at thier side

  • Daffany Rose-Gilbert

    So ignorant

  • Daffany Rose-Gilbert

    Me too

  • LithiumHaitianFlower

    Section 8 crack babies

  • Kanyade

    I would've called security/police first. Even though she was out walking her dogs, go to your apartment, call the law and let them deal with the nuisance.

  • Daffany Rose-Gilbert

    Exactly

  • shay2shaymd

    What if the poor lady did not know how to swim? just horrible

  • ThisHarryHere

    Bump that, she should have never went over there. She could have did her dirty from a distance.

  • We Can Do This

    Typical young male showing off in front of females.

  • Genia

    WOW...that was my same feeling ....i was embarrassed. My initial thoughts being...if she had called the police first, we would have been saying, why couldn't she have just "asked" them to turn it down...If she had called the police and the large crowd of "BLACK" teenagers "Panicked" an officer, and he unloaded his weapon, we'd be wearing one or more of these kids name on t-shirts....and chanting there name(s)....The point i am attempting to make, when our youth our out of line, we have to say "Our youth are out of line" and not draw comparisons on "If they were this race or not this race" ....this is not a black thing, but an indication of the youth of today who do not respect their elders. They are not taught to do so in a youth obsessed society, where we would rather be mistaken as our daughter's sister in public before we let them refer to us as ma'am or sir in public...

  • RespectSelf

    I will say that it doesn't look like he was trying to body slam her, but rather slipped smh.

    But kids are off the chain.... a 16 year old doing all that why??? to impress somebody???

  • Genia

    No, i wouldn't say that. they didn't find it too acceptable, they had the presence of mind to RUN.....

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Not today Satan...

  • RespectSelf

    Right, from the write up I thought it was just a few folks.... but it was a whole party going on there.

  • Genia

    Me too...i would have asked too. My first mind would not have been to call the police. If i were a resident in that apartment complex and the Bass was vibrating my walls, i would not have thought twice about asking them to turn it down.

  • LibraGirlonly

    YEAH he picked the right elderly person cause if it was my grandma he would have a ??Upside his head!

  • Renee26

    He didn't body slam her he fell...but he shouldn't have been trying to throw her int he pool anyway

  • Renee26

    Exactly

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    She shoulda called the cops and not went on private property in the first place but that boy was wrong. He deserves everything he gets due to his lack of respect. Im not gonna lie tho when I saw the video I was more worried about the dogs than the owner...

  • Genia

    I want to hear his parents say he got his a$$ whooped and appropriately grounded for this. In addition to the civil laws he violated.

  • Renee26

    Same thing I said when I first saw it...she should have called the authorities if she had a noise complaint...bet she minds her own business next time

  • ShWa

    This doesn't make him a thug, I think that is judging him without knowing him, yes he was way out of line disrespecting the elderly woman and should be punished for his actions, this should have never happened to any adult from a child. Very stupid what he did.

  • Renee26

    It was kinda funny to watch her and her dog go in the pool...I don't care that old helfa more than likely wouldn't stick up for me if I was thrown in the pool for mettlin either

  • Genia

    If the white woman had called the police from behind her curtain, folks would be calling her a racist!!!!!! Who did not attempt to "Talk it Through"

  • Renee26

    giggles

  • Genia

    yep

  • 100milesperhour

    What I said. Rowdy teens, loud music, disturbing the peace...call the cops. Don't go on private property trying to be the cherub of justice.

  • Renee26

    She's a racist who got thrown in the pool...her statement said how she feels...the boy isn't a HUMAN...she didn't say man or functioning adult etc...she said human. She thinks they're all animals

  • RespectSelf

    Right, while this doesn't take away from what the misguided ( instead of thug lol) teen did.... I'm like just keep walking your dog. She clearly was doing way too much that folks were already filming her. It wasn't a small group blasting music... It was a whole damn party going on. I'm sure she will thinking twice before approaching a situation and ask if it's even worth it.

  • Renee26

    For minor bruises...she won't get anything. He's punished enough. He now has a record that will follow him around for the rest of his life and possibly hinder his future success as an adult

  • Renee26

    Exactly

  • Nonya Bizness

    I was worried about the dog that was being dragged looking like he was going to be strangled or drowned as well. I also think she had no business going down there shaking her finger at 200 people."She told police she sits on the association board of the complex and she was responding to residents’ complaints about the noise." A lot of help she is.

  • Phillybruh

    Throw the book at this disrespectful little (insert cuss word), what gave him the indication that this was ever ok!

  • Nonya Bizness

    Plus they live in an HOA. I don't see things going well for the family. Watch them get kicked out. HOA's have rules. I hope they do not get kicked out of their home because of this.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I was so worried they were gonna step on those dogs. She's like a 1000 years old I dont know why she thought she would be able to stop come teenagers. Anyway...Im glad the dogs are ok LOL

  • darealwifey

    The kids were wrong, and the main one who picked her up was completely wrong, and they are right to charge him; HOWEVER!!! I have major issues with the language being used: "thug" and "evolved." These are YOUNG people who did something STUPID. I'm sorry this happened to that lady. Black parents have to step it up and reign our kids in because it's not "everybody else's" kids that are the problem. This is widespread. Somewhere we really dropped the ball as a community.

  • RespectSelf

    Does he even live there though? I'm think he was just a guest which is why he would feel more comfortable acting a fool like that.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Scumball.

  • CookieMobster

    If the behavior he displayed doesn't make him a thug I'm not sure what does. He obviously has no sense of right or wrong or he would NEVER treat an elderly woman of any race creed or color in the manner.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Classless, animals. Scum of the earth.

  • Wile E. Coli

    Yes, it makes him a lowlife P.O.S.

  • Genia

    He failed to think it through.....he nor anyone else around considered the consequences to her life. ..so he was, in this instance in this brief moment, a lower thinking species.... FACTS

  • Wile E. Coli

    They are animals. No one stopped it. Scum of the earth.

  • Wile E. Coli

    I hope they find themselves homeless.

  • klwbaby

    Can he be charged as an adult?

  • Renee26

    No they are human beings...just like you

  • Renee26

    Teenagers do dumb things...he's still a human being regardless. Throwing someone in the pool happens often; he obviously wasn't thinking about the consequences. Nevertheless he's still a human and she lived with no severe injuries only a few MINOR bruises. If you can't understand that teenagers handle and comprehend things differently than adults then maybe you are the lower thinking species.

  • Renee26

    Just like you...TROLL

  • YES I SAID IT…

    SMH saying what is wrong with this fukin misguided kids these days!?! Like keep your fukin hands to yoursefl! The lady should have called the cops to begin with if the noise was too much to bare however no matter what, that little punk is a follower bcuz he did what someone else in the crowd told him to do and that is throw her in and he needs to be charged bcuz they need to start teaching these young kids/adults a lesson about doing reckless careless shiit!

  • Coy little wink

    A lawsuit for personal injury is not meant to punish a defendant but to make a plaintiff whole. Her injuries both physical and emotional are compensable

  • Wile E. Coli

    Nothing LIKE me. They're feral, uncivilized trash.

  • Renee26

    They may get kicked out but that's the consequences of his stupid actions. Hopefully they will be able to find other housing and the boy will make better choices in the future

  • Wile E. Coli

    It is ASSAULT. Doesn't matter if her bruises are minor or not.

  • Genia

    no.....this behavior is un-excusable. It isn't a race thing...it isn't even an "oh teenagers do stupid ish" thing. THANK GOD she had not severe injuries...because a court of law would not have seen this as some teenage antics...STOP making excuses for this man-child, in fact stop making excuses for the disrespect. In fact, perhaps, your words are an indicator of how you may view this child. Perhaps subconsciously YOU too view him as lower thinking, and therefore above reproach for his behavior...MAYBE you are failing to see him as having a brain...Do you not see him has having the ability to reason and not be destructively impulsive? Perhaps you should give him and his parents more credit.

  • LexGirl

    WYS!!! Half of them have no respect for THEMSELVES, so the really don't have respect for anyone else! He needs a good ole fashion arse whooping!!

  • Ni Ni

    How awful! I don't excuse ignorant behavior from nobody- black or white. This boy is a reflection of his parents.

    Old folks gone fuss & nag, but you dont touch them. That lady would've eventually gone back in her house.

  • LexGirl

    It used to be "I am my brother's keeper!" Now its, "All about ME"!!!

  • Renee26

    Things like this happen with other races too....don't be fooled into thinking that it's only black/brown kids who are unruly or who do stupid stuff like this. The media loves to put brown faces in the spotlight to make it seem like minorities are the root of the problem. Parents in general need to teach their kids respect.

  • Ni Ni

    For shyts, giggles, & freaking likes. This generation is the dumbest.

  • Renee26

    How about you Stop commenting to me since your ignorantly putting words in my mouth because YOU don't agree with what I said about this child being a human being. YOU are the one continuously insulting this child nor me...Go back under the rock you climbed out from under. BYE GENIA

  • YES I SAID IT…

    U right about that! They don't have respect for themselves and its sad to see our youth acting like they don't have no self-control or no respect or remorse for other human beings.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    No respect at all. We can stop asking who raised these kids. The 14 y/o mom raised them and now, they're best friends.

    I saw the clip on FB and was in disbelief the entire time. The lil bitch in the background talking about throw her in the pool. Like wait, what? IDK what y'all gone do with this degeneration, but we're doomed. These kids have no regard, no respect, and you can't say anything to them, case in point.

    That old lady could've died. What if she couldn't swim?

  • Yardgirl

    True dat! A group of white teens could have done the same thing and the media reporting would have been totally different!! They were dead wrong, but they are not "thugs or animals" If it were white kids it would have been reported as a "prank gone too far" and no most likely charges would have been filed.

  • Tink Tink

    It was quite "animalistic" of him to drag an elderly woman and throw her in the pool.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    You have to be honest, once he put his hands on her and the aftermath of it (celebration, laughter), you too would walk away calling them thugs because n i gger would be bleeped out.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Smh, the smartphone will be the death of this generation.

    I have a friend who is a Criminal Defense Attorney and he says it's almost impossible to do his job because these kids will post or text every single detail of their "crimes". He says most of the time all he can do is hope for a Judge that will break up the way time is served.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Please don't do that. I bet you're more concerned with what a group of black kids will do to you vs a group of anything other race of kids.

  • Genia

    you people (yeah i said it) YOU PEOPLE, should be less sensitive to counter comments that don't align with your own and not revert to basic insults...(it's lower thinking).....i never referred to his child as not human....and im simply saying to you, for you to try and minimize his behavior as basic teenage antics is an indicator of how you may possibly view his ability to think things through.....BTW: As a higher thinking human i don't live under a rock...i live in the BURBS...BYE lovely.

  • CookieMobster

    I think she was saying that because of his actions. Not his race. If he did this to your grandmother would you feel the same way?

  • Tink Tink

    I get that, but lets think, what if she called the cops and they came and due to the rowdiness something terrible happens. Now "we" are in an uproar saying, if they felt it was too rowdy, they could have at least warn them to cut down the noise first before calling the cops.....I would never advise an elderly woman to go into a rowdy crowd of kids, but maybe she thought it would be best to control the situation before calling the cops.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I don't think it was her doing too much. She's the type neighbor y'all want to hate until somebody break in your house. THAT'S when it's "ms. nosey shouldmindyourbusiness," did you see anything?

    I live around all blacks and I've lived in mixed areas. Others are like this, no matter the rowdy behavior. If it's loud, chickens in the yard, roosters howling, or a loud party, these type neighbors will say something. Now, in black areas, we barely flinch at hearing multiple gun shots. So yeah.

  • SaltineCrackers

    His mother could be 56... No one is raising their children anymore, everyone is busy with their social media accounts, young and old.

  • Rayne

    Thinking the same thing. What if she couldn't swim and drowned? What then?

  • Renee26

    Her injuries are very minor so let's balance out her emotional feelings with how his life will be impacted emotionally...he now is a black male with a criminal record. A criminal record of assault so he possibly will not be able to get into college or get a decent job in the future. His record could also lead to a lifetime of going in and out of jail for other crimes because he can't get a job to support himself or a future family. He's now labeled as a thug and possibly will never be able to redeem himself from that title because the public has seen him act stupid on video tape. When he gets pulled over or stopped after being profiled ( most black males can't escape this) his record will be brought up and officers will treat him poorly. ...HER: her minor bruises will go away in a week or so and she will still be an old white lady with 2 dogs and a strong support system behind her until the day she dies.....I still think his punishment is enough.

  • Ni Ni

    I wish you could post this statement all over the net.

  • Briana Tyson

    I think he is a thug. He could have killed her and her dog. Once she fell to the floor she could have been seriously injured, he didn't care. She might not have been able to swim, she might have got tangled in the dog leash. It could have all ended up worst than it did. Disrespect would have been calling her some names. He crossed that line when he put his hands on her.

    Smh, the smartphone will be the death of this generation. <----- #FACTS

    If that was me or my mom we would be suing...I wouldn't think twice about that fool. I have no sympathy for people who attack unprovoked

  • Phillybruh

    I can tell by some of these comments which parents would be ok with this.

  • LibraGirlonly

    If you don't raise your children properly the streets will.

  • SickWidIt2dabone

    Right!

  • Truth

    He'll get his due by being butt touched in jail hopefully.

  • darealwifey

    Oh, I know. I work with them everyday. My main concern is my own community, though, because I know at the end of the day, white kids will be forgiven and get to live their lives with few consequences. Something like this can destroy a black kid's life, though.

  • Vegas1989

    I know...I can't stand them. I pray for this generation but they are sorry as hell....Lazy and dumb. I girl at work was asking what holiday was on the 29th this month. She said cinco de mayo and then she said mother day...and then in a loud voice said Memorial day...I almost cussed but I did tell them that they need to read. Damn....

  • JV

    People's individual perceptions of other people are not indicative of whether or not those "other people" in question are actually "good or bad."

    If there's a group of people acting threatening, then it's natural to be concerned. Otherwise, you never know what motivates a person, or what they might do, or what they're capable of.

  • Ni Ni

    He certainly fits the description, in that moment at least.

  • Tink Tink

    Upvote x100

  • Quitedeliteful

    I hope they catch this fool. He should at least get six months in juvie and another six months probation along with a full year of community service to the elderly...

  • darealwifey

    You better say that because it is so true! I just watched a video yesterday where a man "abducted" (with the mother's permission) a little boy who was at the park with the father. The mother felt like the father did not pay close enough attention to the child, so she allowed someone the child did not know to approach the child with candy and to pull the boy away from the park, which the guy did very easily right in front of the father whose face was buried in his phone. Then the father had the nerve to get mad at the mother when he realized she was behind the "abduction." He should've felt ashamed for not watching his child.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    He slipped.
    He did purposely throw her in the pool
    Different view: She was out of line. It is a POOL PARTY during the day. Did she even bother to fine out if management cleared the party.
    She is problematic.

    He IS WRONG. She opened that door.

  • Phillybruh

    Well the video kinda validates her argument that's what I thought when I saw it. My 10 year old actually called them animals!

  • Faithz

    That was wrong on all fronts, He didn't have to do that.

  • Faithz

    Yep,,,

  • taurus_32

    Exactly! I think most people are missing that point because the outcome would have been totally different if she had called the police first.

  • Tynamight

    I'm sorry this happened to her. I've been slammed before and it don't feel good.

  • kennedy campbell

    we can't say they are a reflection of the parents because you can raise a child in what is supposed to be the "right way" and they come out a mess. ever see siblings..you might just have that one bad apple even if they were all raised to do good. now i haven't seen this boys parents so i don't know

  • Faithz

    You are so on point, and it seem that people are
    getting crazier by the day.

  • Renee26

    No, I fear no kids actually. I don't lock my doors nor clutch my purse when minorities are around in groups or when I'm in low income areas. I have seen kids of all races act stupid...the white kids in my area are currently going around vandalizing houses and breaking into cars; they are also doing drugs in the parks and stealing their parents pills, getting arrested for fighting and underage drinking, and showing a lack of respect to their parents and other adults. BUT we don't see that stuff plastered all over the news nor do we automatically pre-judge the white kids....IJS if ya'll don't want your own children to become statistics we have to not only raise our own the right way but we also have to do everything we can to dispel stereotypes but not agreeing that BLACK/BROWN children are the problem with society. Don't put our kids in a box... Everyone needs to be accountable.

  • JV

    I don't know how "viral" this actually got, but because it's provocative in nature I'm sure it landed on more than a few blogs, especially this one. If you look, there's obvious examples of white teens behaving deplorably as well.. consider that at Penn State, they have a frat accused of poisoning a dude with alcohol until he died, 12 charged with involuntary manslaughter -- made national headlines. So you're right in saying that, yeah, it goes both ways.

  • Tynamight

    The unidentified 16-year-old turned himself in to the Broward County
    Sheriff’s Office in North Lauderdale, at about 5 p.m. on Monday.

    A sign of remorse. Good. He has embarrassed himself and his parents. He's prolly a good kid. He just made a wrong decision.

  • Phillybruh

    It was no real harm in her asking them to turn it down a little bit, they could have obliged her and still been able to hear and enjoy the mumble rap.

  • Renee26

    BINGO!! I'm glad you can see this...others are blind to it and the social conditioning to push hate of black/brown people is working...even on the black/brown people....until one of them is affected they won't get it

  • Hummingbird_225

    I am NOT condoning what he did, but he didn't body slam her . He slipped due to the area being wet. Yes I agree had he NOT touched her he wouldn't be in this situation. But he didn't body slam her.

  • Wile E. Coli

    bullshit. They were likely playing crappy music so loud that the entire neighborhood had to shut their windows. She was doing the right thing NOT calling the cops and just asking in person. You know how these low lifes hate the cops. This punk ass thug was trying to show how tough he is with an old lady. I hope he serves some time and it stays on his record for a long time.

  • She ShowOut

    Drugs and alcohol can ruin your life. I bet everyone there was too wasted to say don't do that old lady like that. smh

  • Connie

    He turned himself in

  • Mrs. ??????????

    "The teen faces a single battery charge on an elderly person over 65. Many complain that he got off easy because of his race." Never known of many black people that got off easy....I read that he faces up to 5 years in prison. I hope the old lady is alright.

  • Ni Ni

    No matter how you raise a kid (good/bad values) they will always be seen as a reflection of you.

    l agree that kids make their own choices in life, but parenting will definitely come into question first whenever that kid makes a poor decision like this. He could've been raised right Idk.

  • Clopretty

    Them kids scattered like roaches when the lights turn on!! Poor woman that was soooo uncalled for!

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    This shit angers and is disgusting to me. I Hate to see parents at the park not paying attention to their kids. I was at the park not too long ago with my kids and there was a mom there with other small kids but she was sleeping on the park bench really?

    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • Real Name

    Who's to say this child doesnt already have a laundry list of charges. If it was so easy for him to do this to an elderly person he had the mind set of IDGAF. He could have really injured this woman when he dropped her but then to continue on to throw her in the pool shows he has no problem with violence. Lock him up people kids or who ever need to realize folks can say what they want as long as they don't put their hands on you. Only in a perfect world this apply. This generation is a disgrace.

    Player's Place? I guess his player azz was acting according to the energy of that name. You know the saying...That's why aliens won't talk to us? Well behavior like this is gonna be the reason the world will stop talking to us, and it did start with our black men leaving the home and abandoning their families. My brothers were never criminals...my dad would beat the mess out of them if they did anything like this....and he does need his butt beat!

    not my grandma...and my mama is getting to the point where she ain't listening to that shyt when she trying to watch her movies either.

  • 88

    I don't agree with the assault charge, First of all she was trespassing her and her nasty ass dog. Secondly she has the nerve to say The kid has not evolved yet into what you’re supposed to be as a human being. BISH your ppl enslaved so called blacks, hispanics and native indians for 400 years, dashed their babies head against stones, put us in zoos and lynched our ppl and made postcards about it and you wanna talk about humanity bish please.

  • ThisHarryHere

    I don't care if she's racist or not all I'm saying is her Old ass should have stayed at home.I mean if i was an old ass woman i could never take enough calcium supplements to feel bold enough to try to break up a party in person. What did she really think she was going to accomplish by strutting her fragile ass on over there.

  • free

    i don't think folk need to ever get the cops involved, particularly involving teens. it was cool for her to walk over and ask. she probably got a bunch of complaints as the association president--a job i would never want.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    It's always that one old bish in the community that think she runs chit. She should have called the security patrol or police to respond to an incident of that magnitude for assistance.
    My bf and I were tried in my moms suburban community last summer by the "pool police" lady, needless to say she won't do it again.

  • free

    maybe these days but not in the old days. we had plenty of old folks doing that. they gave no f*cks. i can't remember if we payed attention to them but we didn't disrespect them.

  • Kanyade

    LOL. I had to do the education on who Gladys Kravitz was/is. Thanks for the laugh.

  • free

    then i feel people would say "why she got the police involved?" the shyt could have really gone sideways with the police there. i think management should send out a letter or post a notice stating pool party and the hours so that sensitive folk know they need to do something else during that time.

  • Kanyade

    True, true. But 200+ people, I don't care what race/age/creed/etc., I'm calling security (the law) first.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I disagree. I, too am glad she did not call the police but running up on folks and not finding out who actually was having party was not appropriate. Plus, it was during the day. Also, if people were that disturbed, someone else would have called the cops.

    Black men at it once again. I avoid places where Black men and hoodrats gather. Hell, I don't even go to my own family reunions anymore because it's too many Black men in one place. Once they start drinking it's usually downhill from there. The title of the video is correct THUGS! Is thug behavior not exhibited in the video? Many Black men conduct themselves similar to what is seen here. They have no self respect of course they would disrespect an elder. Face facts. Most people- Black or white- PAY to live in areas where there are little to Black men. Why wouldn't they? I am a business owner (online) and I have thought about opening a flagship store in a large city ( I have the investors to do it) unfortunately, if I can't legally hang up a "no black men" "no weaves" "no bonnets" "no sagging pants" notice, I would not feel safe or confident . I would certainly be robbed or beaten. Sad but true. Black men are ruining America. My husband and I will be moving to Europe hopefully within in the next 5 years.

These young kids can't wait for a moment to prove their bravado and machismo. I'd squash all that. HE needs to be held accountable for his behavior! Yes the lady should have minded her business but calling 311 for a noise complaint is suitable. 311 will send out the necessary authorities to handle the matter. Stepping in there physically was not her place, it immediately put her in harms way, because most times parties are loud and kids are kids. Also this young man was not in the right place to assault that woman. If i were his mom, not only would i have turned him in, i would have gone heavy hand on his butt!

  • Kimberly Vontrese

    All races of people have been enslaved at some point in time. The enslavement of Africans just was the longest documented and recorded era that we know of. The earth is over 4 BILLION years old. Just like the Bible- history has been re-written over and over again, and since we were not there- we don't know the FULL TRUTH. I do know that not all Blacks are descendants of West African Slaves. Not all Whites are descendants of White Slave Owners. There ARE however Blacks alive today who are descendants of Blacks sold and enslaved by other Blacks. Black men today have taken place of the 'people' you speak of. Black men have killed more Black men than other races have in America in the past 100 years.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

  • Smith Jane

    It's not just black men - it's black PEOPLE - the lower income bracket the more hood and disrespectful. This was outlandish and ridiculous even for our people. Wtf is wrong with these kids?! Yet, if this yt woman had been a certain kind of yt "r@c!$t" we'd be all singing MLK and Rev. Al Sharpton for the loss of a black life. Who remembers when that yt guy shot and killed that black teen (in FL too) to turn the music down and they laughed and yelled belligerent chit? Same thing, just different outcome. We need to take responsibility for these numerous urchins that ravage our communities. THEY ARE NOT A SMALL MINORITY OF OUR PROPLE! These delinquents have numbers!

  • Smith Jane

    Naw, that kid is a reflection of YOU - everything that you did and did not instill in them is reflected in their actions. If your parent creates consequences for your actions, you learn to respect authority and the consequences for disobeying the law (in childhood - your parents). These kids fear NOTHING - & are not afraid of the cops, death, jail - NOTHING. It's like they belief they're immune from every element. Then we've created a culture of coddling these kids and tell them that they're not responsible for their actions (the yt man is) #blm. I mean, something has to give.

  • 888

    There is soooo many things wrong in this situation, but it is definitely not the old lady trying to stand up to them. It was naïve and ridiculous of her to think she could get them to behave. Younger people (all races and religions) have always been prone to doing "stupid stuff". Just like there has always been neighbors like her (nosey and self righteous) there has always been groups of teens getting out of hand. The problem is nowadays more than ever not only are the teens more unruly, they are more disrespectful,have no empathy,rarely think things through, selfish beyond belief, delusional, shallow, have no self worth, depressed, confused, no moral compass. I see these things in my own kids and correct them every step of the way, that's the best I can do. I am so glad the police didn't go instead because that definitely could've ended up much worse.

I'm just tired of it all. Being a Black American is mentally and spiritually exhausting. All I know is- I stay in Europe 6 months out of the year and NEVER have I had to deal with the mess from other Blacks as I have to deal with in America. There are thugs in London which I have encountered, but nothing compares to the thuggery in cities like New York, Chicago, and Detroit. While Black men and women are both engaging in destructive behavior, it us mainly led by Black men. I live in a community that is mostly asian and white and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    It is the job of the elected HOA officers to enforce the rules on behalf of the community. She was certainly within her rights to ask these people to turn down the music on community property. Anyone who makes excuses for the behavior of these teenagers is straight up out of their minds. These kids are the reason why EVERY other ethnicity (white, Asian, Indian, Middle Eastern) doesn't want us black folks as neighbors. We need to quit blaming everyone else for the mess that we've created within our communities.

    Because despite the individualistic mentality that most black people have, we are effected by the choices and actions of other blacks. Whether it be the crime rates in predominately black areas (housing discrimination) or their buffoonish behavior that they upload to Facebook and world star - these actions affect ALL black people. The worse behavior that THEY display, the harder it will be for you to move into a decent neighborhood, get a decent job for an affordable wage, or to even start a business. We can't separate ourselves from other blacks. Society will never let us - & furthermore why should we? We need the numbers and we need to protect our future lineage but that can't happen if we abandon the blacks that we don't like lol. For one, THEY got the numbers, and secondly, they need our help.

  • Smith Jane

    Sad but true. Self preservation.

    I can't control how white supremacists see all black people. I'm not sure where you live but here in DC their are affluent and middle class black neighborhoods. So I don't take my money where it is not wanted.

    Who are you talking about? I haven't made anyone a "hero"

    You mean like how white people have glorified organized crime? How Charles Manson is still being interviewed. Is that what you mean?

    no, that's not what I mean and you should know it. If you don't, then you're part of the problem.

    So, yeah, i'm unfamiliar with the Atlas Shrugg. That doesn't change the fact that you are indeed reaching. I'm not the perfect anything. My comment was not ageist, thats just something that you want to project onto me. Where is stated that i said she should mind her business. Theres that quirky little habit you have of projecting rearing it pesky head again. I never mentioned anything about the kids being black either. I also never said she should have stayed in the house. I said she should have never gone over there with all those rowdy kid. As i throw some more "ageist" wording into this. She is old enough to know better than to strut herself over there into an unsafe environment, perceived or otherwise. She chose to carry her frail ass, the cane lets me know she's not as spry as you seem to think she is, over to where she wasn't needed to get all up in those kids faces. Again, i ask, what did she think was going to happen. Did she think her mere presence was intimidating. enough to quell a celebration?

    No one taught her how to behave. She learned a lesson that day.

    Sighhh. Look you don't seem too understand the geriatric population. They are frightened of the youth of today . They do not understand the culture, the music , language , dress, the acceptance, tolerance, violence, openness, etc. They are not numb to it they are in general disbelief . Hoping it will get better seeing things go downhill in their mind. Although we may feel there are many advances senior citzens see many disadvantages as well . Anyone who is 60 is just learning to adapt . Older than that it can be a struggle .

    Stfu he turned himself in and trust he'll probably have the whole book thrown at him. If white people or whatever race this woman is want to go out and protest then they have every right. But please believe if these were white boys the story would've flipped to make him look like a good teen that thought she needed assistance getting into the pool and she caused her own injuries because she should've let him gently place her in the water. ?

    As 13% of the population, YES. YES. It looks bad when we are caught up in this downright noise. Whether it's media or otherwise, it looks bad. 13% shouldn't constantly be at the forefront of crime and assaults and fights and what have you. It has an effect and we all suffer for it. Either it's a "conspiracy" or there is an actual problem. My guess is that, sadly, there is an actual problem and it's about time we'all get it. There's a problem and that problem starts at home. Ain't no amount of denial gonna help it. No one's buying it no more. Not even me.
