SMH: Little Baddies Cause Life Threatening Injuries With Brutally Violent “Catch And Wreck” Game

- By Bossip Staff Categories: End of Days, Jesus Take The Wheel, News

What the fu*k is wrong with kids these days???

A 12-year-old girl is the third preteen arrested in the attack of a woman Friday night as part of what police called a vicious game.
Beating and stomping adults believed to be homeless was apparently a sport to a group of children between the ages of 9 and 15 at the Finnegan Playground at 69th Street and Grovers Avenue, according to Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives.

He called the game “catch and wreck,” although the actual name might be “catchin’ rep,” as in reputation, according to a Daily News report.

Belinda Moore, 42, was on her way home Friday night from a cleaning job, when she took a shortcut through the playground and was struck with sticks and punched, Walker said. She broke free, managing to limit her injuries to an injured knee and a head wound.

Previously charged with assaulting her were another 12-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy. The second 12-year-old girl was arrested yesterday.

Their names are being withheld because they’re juveniles.

The boy was also charged in an even more brutal case.

On March 13, Vincent Poppa, 73, suffered a heart attack during or shortly after being attacked near the playground, and remains at Methodist Hospital, where he recently was on a ventilator in the intensive care unit, Walker said.

Poppa was allegedly struck in the back of the head with a gun, knocked unconscious and stomped by four or five male youths around 9 p.m.

The resident of a nearby senior citizens complex was returning from buying a soda when he was attacked, Walker said.

Medical personnel found footprints on Poppa’s head and sneaker marks on his body, he added.

Police learned about the game when a large group of neighborhood youths were questioned at Southwest Detectives after the assault on Moore.

“They were all saying the same thing, laughing at us, like we didn’t know what it meant,” Walker said. “They said, ‘It’s something stupid we do for fun.’ ”

“It’s bizarre mindset these kids have developed,” Walker said. “We’re hoping we can nip it in the bud.”

Additional arrests are possible, police said.

Whatever happened to respecting your elders??? How did these kids get so lost?

This ish has gotten way out of hand. It seems like every other story is either the parents or step-parents beating the kids to death or the kids running around like little heathens nearly killing or killing other kids and adults.

How do we get back to folks understanding the value of human life?

  • I HATE THUGS

    And I bet you every single one of them ain’t got no daddy in the home. This is what comes of being raised by the, triflin, baby mamas! This is the mess that came out of the policies of Liberal black organizations when they encouraged the break up of the black family homes, forced the fathers out and told the mothers you don’t need a man. That the government will give you a stripen to live on, just enough to keep you poor and frustrated so that you will not have the energy or will to raise your kids right. My father said all of this mess started about 40 to 50 years ago. My granddaddy said that back in the 1950’s little black kids wanted to grow up to be doctors, lawyers and engineers, and they cared about education and so did their parents. Now they want to be thugs and hurt innocent black people. The law needs to crack down on these fools and force them to stay in school or go into the military-those are your options. At least the military will teach them the discipline and self-responsibility that they never learned at home.

    BLACK MEN NEED TO STAND UP AND JOIN POSSES TO TAKE ON THESE VIOLENT MUTHERF**KERS THEN WE WILL SEE JUST HOW BAD THEY ARE. THEY NEED TO BE DEALT WITH WITH THE SAME KIND OF MERCY THEY SHOW TO THEIR VICTIMS.

    I think it’s gone on for far too long, and it may be too late, SMH… I remember ALWAYS having respect for my elders, as a young child, and now as an adult. I cant even imagine raising my voice or cursing at an elder, let alone beating them up! WTF, I pray for these children now a days.😦

    I agree with you totally. I’d be embar a s s ed if those were my children. NO HOME TRAINING! They are all deviants.

  • Dushawn

    You can pray all you want but you need to get practical about this situation. Trash needs to be treated like trash because they will treat you like garbage and take your life away in a heartbeat and then laugh about it. We gotta get tough with this and stay tough about it for as long as it takes. Take them out of law-abiding society until they learn some sense. They losers and they mad about it so they gonna make somebody pay because they losers and don’t want to change. Tough shit. If you stupid and violent that is your own damn fault. Decent black folks can’t walk the streets in peace because of them so they need to be put out like the trash they are.

  • Yapper( Found out we are expecting our 1st child)

    Wow! Kids are crazy these days wtf. Where are their parents? They all need a good beating yes beating.

  • thatbrutha

    @ IHATE THUGS
    you are a complete MORON! LIBERAL BLACK GROUPS CHILD PLEASE.

    THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN FAMILIES ARE BROKEN UP BECAUSE A MAN CAN”T BE IN THE HOME TO ACCEPT GOVERNMENT HELP!

  • that damn sh#$ disturber

    so let me get this straight. bebe’s brats jump out the bushes and whip folk’s a$$es now?? sounds like the fools i see on the train everyday. got the nerve to have uniforms on like they’re gettin an “edumacation” their parents might as well take all that money and flush it down the toilet b/c these heathens aren’t learning a damn thing…

    Below is a quote from a judge from a column in today’s Philadelphia Daily News:

    “But in the courtroom we’re seeing more families that consist of minors raising minors. There is no one exerting real parental care or control. That’s not an enlightened expansion of the family. We’re witnessing the deconstruction of the family. It’s heartbreaking.”

    I’m still reading about the particulars of these alleged a-s-s-a-u-l-t-s (there’s also an article in today’s NY Times), but, on face value, these incidents appear to illustrate more symptoms of a lack of parental guidance. I saw that two of the suspects are as young as 11 and 12 — why are these children involved in violent gatherings at night?

    There are photos of one of the victims — Belinda Moore, a sister — on philly.com, and her injuries are still very visible from being punched and hit with sticks. Another 73-year-old victim remains in the hospital after suffering a heart attack during an a-s-s-a-u-l-t during which he was stomped. I agree with remarks by Mayor Nutter that it is not the city’s job to raise children, and a number of them seem destined to have a life behind bars or worse. Maddening and sad.

    Correction.. *wear*

  • 3rd World Culture

    3rd world culture is in full force in the black community. American christians traditiionally are sympathetic to the poor, give to them, and support them. 3rd world africans and caribbeans came here by the millions in the last 10 years. Our children are learning values from them and their children, who are our childrens’ peers. STAND UP AMERICAN CHRISTIANS AND TAKE BACK YOUR CHILDREN FROM DRUG LORDS AND PAGANS.

  • meek

    I blame this all on the parents! Where is the mother when their children are out acting a dang fool? Probably sitting on the stoop smoking some weed/crack/meth and waiting for her john to come by! So sad my prayers and heart go out to the victims

    @ thatbrutha

    Actually a man CAN be in the home and you can recieve government help. The couple need to be MARRIED. That’s the problem, they are babymommas & babydaddys NOT HUSBAND & WIFE.

  • peaches

    Where are the parents? They are responsible. Maybe they can’t be with them 24 hrs, but @ that age they should @ leastknow where they are @ all times.

  • bee

    @I hate thugs

    I have to agree with you. The younger generation is getting so out of control, only God knows what it will be like when I decide to have kids with my significant other.

  • sin

    I say round up all these BASTARDS and drop them off in the middle of the war zone in Iraq.
