Why isn't the owner of the store in trouble? Are you allowed to assault a customer?
Definitely doesn't seem like you just turned 54.

It seems like you're taking the question the wrong way.
ETA: I'm in no way defending the child, my question is how he can get away with it? I would have liked to punch him just as much as the owner did.

Seems like you know more than what is posted in the article. Article has no details on what happened besides that police was needed.

Not sure how much this matters but the fellow was trespassing as he clearly asked him to leave several times. We also donít know what happened before.

1. Are there more or is it the same bunch over and over again?
2. Are all teens in WG Plaza from WG?
3. The nature of a development like WG is that it will attract unstable families.
I'm not familiar with Westgate. Why do you think #3

Unstable families need lots of neighbors.

There is nowhere else in Lakewood with rentals the size of those in WG where there is no concern of the landlord etc throwing you out to move in or the like.

I'm not sure what he's referring to, but 1 thing to know about Westgate is that it's by far the biggest development in Lakewood (if you want to call it a development - more like a neighborhood), if I'm not mistaken. I think there are over 10,000 people there. The houses are also smaller and cheaper than in many other parts of Lakewood. It's possible that he's referring to both these factors having the effect of people that can't afford or wouldn't fit into very homogenous picture perfect young developments moving to a larger, cheaper, more diverse neighborhood like Westgate. (I don't know any of these things to be completely factual - someone please correct me if I'm wrong.)

Interesting and very good point. (I actually know people living in WG for many years that own a home elsewhere and basically outgrew their rental, but don't want to move out because they like their neighbors and neighborhood.)

Yes! That's exactly what these kids need! Hyperbole and demonization!

I think some Toms River residents may be very insulted that you are posting about them in a Lakewood thread. Do people post about Deal people in a Lakewood thread? How come people conflate Lakewood residents and Toms River residents?!

No, relative to Tom's River, Deal is not close to Lakewood.
People can post about Pomona ppl in the Monsey thread without complaint.
