Have you seen his Mum today or heard anything about them being rude to you? Bet he didn't tell his mother you cared about them and were cheeked for your trouble.

Boy next door to us had a fake gun, he was out in the road pointing it etc. We told his mother, but she did not take it away from him.
Another person went and told his mother, that if the police had been informed there was someone with a gun, they could have come round, and he could have been shot.
We never saw it again,

I once knocked on my neibours door to tell her that her 2 year old had a hammer and was destroying the fence. Not to mention the fact that he could have had a serious injury. Apparently I disturbed her day time tv and her reaction was to laugh and say oh he's always doing that.
You just can't help some people...Im so glad I dont live there anymore!

You right, Yorkshire Pud (may I call you Pud?).

Society is about each of us caring for the other; it is not up to the police to monitor and intervene with all our activities. The 19-year-old may have thought he was being tough and skilled; despite his rudeness, he may have realised that you were right, though I doubt he will be man enough to admit it and apologise.

Such is our society, the young seem to think that they can do whatever they like, with no retribution; should anyone else thinks otherwise, then those others are wrong, and they will tell them so quite vociferously. But they should beware - recently, there was a brief police chase where the culprit eventually crashed. He killed one passenger, and severely injured another (a 12-year-old boy). During the chase, I have little doubt that he thought he was the bees knees, and his driving skills were unsurpassed; similarly, his passengers would also be on a high, and urged him on. Now, he has to live the rest of his days knowing that his stupidity killed a friend.

Yes you was right to interfere, after all as already said he should have known better!
Call the police if there is ever a next time.

I would have had to say something and I would also tell the mother when you see her too. How would you have felt if one of them had lost an eye and you had ignored them?
Some kids are so stupid and just don't think.

Well, I think I would have said something, especially if it was obvioiusly dangerous. Stupid boy!

Lets only hope he injures himself and nobody else.
