Re: Call For for calm in Crescent Beach, Aug. 18.
We are appalled at the brazen attack and gang beating of Erik Seiz by teenagers at Crescent Beach.
Had Seiz been a lawyer or judge, those hoodlums would have been put in jail; instead, they were released to their parents.
They should have spent the night in jail – separately – and their parents called early in the morning, and perhaps that might frighten them into not wanting to do it again.
I hope Seiz and BC Medical sue each of the parents for monies lost in medical costs and the pain and suffering Seiz is going to have to endure because their kids are out drinking and looking for trouble.
What is happening here? Why are there so many gangs of kids with nothing to do but create disturbances?
What are we – society – doing wrong? Are we so lenient in our legal system that no one has any fear of retribution any more?
Obviously, something must be done, and done soon. These kids need to be dealt accordingly.
