    Idiot Kids throwing stuff onto I-235

    Not sure if anyone saw the 10pm KCCI news last night but there were kids throwing stuff onto I-235 from the E 9th bridge yesterday during rush hour that KCCI caught on tape right before the police showed up. One kid threw a good sized log and they found some pieces of brick and rock that were thrown as well. Don't see the story up on KCCI's website for some reason but how dumb were those kids? The log that was thrown had it hit a car could have seriously hurt someone if not possibly killed them.

    Then when they interviewed the kid in front of his house it made more sense as the kid couldn't speak well and the neighborhood looked like one of the trashy East side places. The kid said he was dared that is why he was throwing the stuff. Bet mom and dad were proud that he got on TV too...

    A kid on my basketball team a couple years ago said he was driving in DM with his dad and a bunch of kids threw a dog off the bridge onto their windshield. I guess they had all gotten high and taken one of the kid's family dog. Made me sick hearing about it and seeing the pictures.



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    OHHH, I am sure that they had their trusty VCR running and are looking for way to duplicate the tape so they can send it out at Xmas. Now, once he kid was on TV, all of the other PhDs in the area will go out and try it too.

    Re: Idiot Kids throwing stuff onto I-235

    not as bad as this I guess, but could've been:

    (AP) Fairmont, Minn. Four boys and an 18-year-old man were charged Friday for an incident in which someone dropped a bowling ball off an Interstate 90 overpass onto the freeway in August, seriously injuring a truck driver from Montana.

    A 17-year-old Fairmont boy was charged with first-, second- and third-degree felony assault and first-degree criminal damage to property, along with conspiracy to commit for allegedly dropping the bowling ball that hit truck driver Theodore Maki, 54, of Missoula, Mont.

    Andrew J. Fellersen, 18, of Fairmont, told authorities he was with the boys when they stole a bowling ball off a fence post from a backyard in Fairmont and drove to the overpass, where they were rolling the ball around in the early morning hours of Aug. 26 as Fellersen told them about someone who had thrown a cinder block off the bridge and hit a trailer.

    According to Fellersen's statement, the group then dropped the bowling ball off the bridge onto Interstate 90 to see if they could make the ball crack. He said they went down and retrieved the bowling ball and returned to the overpass, where they were going to try to drop it on the trailer of a semi.

    Fellersen told authorities they saw a semi approaching and tried to time the drop, but the 17-year-old dropped the ball too early.

    Maki was hit in the head by the ball and knocked unconscious. His truck crossed the median and westbound lanes before going through a fence and crashed 200 feet into a cornfield. Maki was airlifted to St. Marys Hospital in Rochester, but has since recovered.

    Re: Idiot Kids throwing stuff onto I-235

    My guess is the parents are not around much. I had to replace a windshield on my van from something that came off a bridge. It was dark so I don't know if it ws dropped or not but it sure seamed like it.

    Why should Trav go back and edit the truth? That is the first thing I thought when I saw it. Good parenting skills, letting your kids play on an interstate bridge.

    Funny that they actually interviewed the kids. The parents should be taken out back and beaten senseless for raising such a stupid kid.

    Re: Idiot Kids throwing stuff onto I-235

    People who do this type of thing should be punished big time no matter what age. Make them work a zillion hours of community service, probation and pay a hefty fine (maybe something like $2,500 or something.) make a statement so frickin idiots stop doing this crap.
    In my mind, if the people are aiming at the cars from the bridge its like attempted murder. Smucks.

    My thoughts exactly. Sometimes stuff like what Trav said are stereotypes - sometimes they're just plain accurate.

    Everyone has beaten me to it. I am one of those guys that likes to tell it like it is.

    Ever watch the Des Moines Cops episodes? Ever see em filming anywhere other than the East side?
