You have a somewhat derranged obession with law and order. The other week you were preaching against the evils of hoons and how they're basically the devil incarnate.

I'm a social libertarian. I understand what liberty is. You call yourself a libertarian and make noises about wanting freedom, but you haven't yet progressed past the infantile 'I'll do what I want' stage yet. Hopefully you do one day. Then you'll be a libertarian.

Sshh. Don't tell him that freedom means responsibility. Let him have his fun for the next 20 years discovering it.

You are a derranged control freak with a self righteous streak.

Why do you think he is? Tell me, in which way you justify the behavior of these impersonators ? Remember he said "not literally but legally" and that he said "just as if they had been caught after they had successfully carried out whatever crime".

I mean, how would you feel if 7 people developed some elaborate scheme and tricked you into something? Posing like real estate agents for example?

It's not that they didn't do wrong, it's fumblus' thoughts about what should happen to them

>They need to have their lives destroyed for the next decade or more

For a prank? Illegal as it may have been, we've all done stupid shit when we were young, fumblus' reaction to both this and the hoons is completely over the top with regards to the crimes being comitted.

firstly, we don't know if its a prank. 16-18 year olds can commit crimes. I mean by your logic a gang of 7 , 16-18 year olds can go into the bank...with replica pistols and if caught they legally can defend themselves as "lol. it was just a prank" i agree that destroying their lives is a bit excessive (as there is zero chance for reform) but treating as a prank is also naive.

Who says it was a prank? 7 men attempting to block in a single woman on the side of the road? Doesn't sound so harmless to me.
