Im not sure how many of you have heard about this story, but over Labor Day weekend, 200-400 teens broke into the upstate home of a former NFL player and had a rave style party. The owner of the home was at his Florida home when he was alerted by his college aged son that a party was in progess at their home. His son discovered the party on twitter. The teens were posting updates and pictures on twitter and facebook about the party.
It is estimated that the teens did $20,000 in damage not including items that they stole from the home.
He created a website to reach out to the kids who did this and the community. He also identified the teens who were in attendance by posting screenshots of their status updates and pictures. On the website he extended an offer to the kids and parents to help make restitution by coming to his home and helping with the clean up. Only 1 parent showed up.
NOW several of the parents are suing HIM. Their kids broke into his home. Had an illegal party that included alcohol and drugs, damaged his home and stole his property and the parents of these teens want to sue him for posting something that they had already posted to social media.
Now put yourself in those parents shoes, how would you react?
Would you sue him or would you and your kid have taken him up on his offer and helped to clean up the damage?
