Boys will be boys? A 12-year-old and 9-year-old hopped into an excavator, drove it around a strip mining site and destroyed anything that got in their way. It got pretty bad. They flipped over a bulldozer, smashed windows and sprayed fire extinguishers at whatever they could find. The total damage the two boys caused is estimated to be $164,000.

This happened in Pennsylvania and the 12-year-old is facing a charge of felony criminal mischief while the 9-year-old was not charged because they are under the age of culpability for the crime, which is 10. It's unclear how the kids got to the site, if anyone was on site at the time and how it was discovered to be them. Man, those kids are terrors. And there not even teenagers yet!


wish i did this as a kid (minus the 12 year old facing charges part)

Does anybody else see the irony here? A couple of kids get in trouble for causing "massive damage" at a fucking strip mine.

"Hey kids, you can't come wreck stuff here. Causing massive damage is our job, not yours. And unlike us, you don't have a multimillion dollar corporation backing you up."

Also, it should be "They're," not "There."

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.

I find the $164,000 estimate hard to believe. It seems like just knocking over a stop sign somehow causes like $50,000 worth of damage, if that's really what stuff costs then no wonder we're running out of money.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

At first I thought it said "escalator", and my reaction was "how the hell do you cause $164,000 worth of damage with some moving stairs?"

haha.

But hes saying like oh strip mining is only allowed for adults or something like that.

But he totally ignored that they flipped over bulldozer, causing damage and using an excavator and just screwing round with a fire extinguisher. Like thatdoesnt sound like strip mining.

When I read "Excavator," the first thing that came to mind was some sort of advanced military rocket launcher that shoots fire out both ends.

That 9-year old kid may be the luckiest kid in the world. He helped hijack an excavator, ****ED shit up and isn't gettin charged for it! Kid has bragging rights for life
