Twelve year old gang leader thought it was fun to throw stones at vehicles on the motorway

Five boys aged between 12 and 16 have been arrested after a series of incidents of rocks being thrown at vehicles on the Chonburi motorway. 

 

A twelve year old said that he was the leader of the gang. He rode a motorcycle with sidecar with his mates to a bridge. 

 

They took rocks with them. 

 

He said they intended to throw the rocks and hit the roofs of large trucks and make a big bang. 

 

It was all in fun, he said, but when it went wrong on Saturday they fled the scene. 

 

A large truck heading towards Chonburi carrying sand was hit in the windscreen and the driver suffered a hand injury in a very scary experience. It happened near KM marker 37.

 

The boys were arrested by Bang Plee Noi police at a house in Bang Bo, Samut Prakarn. A motorcycle with sidecar and a 2 kilogram rock was taken into evidence. 

 

No charges have yet been made.

 

Other victims have reported similar incidents on the motorway, said Naew Na.

What was a 12-year old doing driving a motor bike?

Why wouldn't he? Did you ever hear of a 12yr old being arrested or detained for driving a motor bike?

When I was 15 years old, some friends and I did essentially the same stupid thing, except we tossed large tomatoes purloined from a nearby garden. The effect on an automobile windshield going 60 mph was about the same as a rock.  There was a dis-used overpass spanning a highway and we thought it great fun, hearing the brakes squeal and laughing our dumb asses off as we ran away. We were fortunate and nobody was hurt but we later learned that man had almost lost control with his wife and several kids in the car.

My friends came by the next evening wanting me to go back to the bridge with them and do it again.  For some reason still unknown to me, I declined and stayed home.

The cops figured we'd be back and were waiting by the bridge and nailed them all.  They all had to go to court and pay restitution.  They kept my name out of it but I had to kick in all my summer savings to pay my share.

Still makes me shudder when I think about it;  just so pointlessly stupid. Somebody could easily have been badly injured or perhaps even killed but that appalling possibility never even entered our minds.

"Why did you do it?"  the judge asked my friends.

"Don't know" they replied "Just for laughs"   I still have no idea why I thought it was fun.

Did anyone here not do something stupid and dangerous as a kid? Hopefully this will be a learning experience for them and they'll straighten up and fly right.

Throwing boulders off a bridge is next level. Many people have had their faces caved in through the back of their skull from this. These kids are lucky they didn’t the same, and they identified themselves as a gang. That’s not just boys being boys.

Jeez, that truck driver was super lucky he wasn't badly injured or worse as the rock has punched a hole thru' a laminated screen .. 

As for the urchins who did it .. Some correctional guidance/straightening-out is imperative from this point on pronto ..
