    Why does damage need to be done.
    Noise and disturbance is a 'sort' of damage
    Well I'd agree...

    Except there hadn't been a report of noise and damage.

    We're discussing an "89-year-old charged with keeping kids' ball"...

    I've already discussed the potential of "noise" and "damage" so I won't continue to repeat myself...The fact remains no noise or damage had been reported in the case.

    I lived down the street from a guy who stood out in the middle of the street shaking his golf club at me, my brothers, and our friends just for simply driving by. But hey he was "old" right so he was justified in doing so right?...

    Ok I have not read the thread right the way through.
    My point is purely why the old lady felt her only option was to confiscate the ball.
    Reports of noise or damage are irrelevent.
    From that point foreward it should be down to whoever attended the scene's common sense how the situation was dealt with.
    Charging the old dear is over the top in my opinion, but was probably due to the kids and their parents being more vocal than the old dear when confronted by 'The Authorities' for a seemingly minor problem

    The parents of the children should have made their children adhere to her preferences if and only if she were honestly being disturbed by reasons I find to be justifiable, and the level in which I refer to the woman, hypothetically speaking, was only being bothered upon her being simply prudish increases substantially in direct co-relation to the amount of damage not being done to herself or her yard reminiscent of the word "bitch"...Again,..obviously hypothetically speaking of course.

    Re: I hardly call THIS a crime:

    The parents knew this woman was being disturbed and should have instructed their kids to play elsewhere. The elderly lady owns the property and it should not be encroached upon....regardless of whether or not damage is done. This is called common respect. It is obvious that the children's parents were never taught common respect and therefore are not teaching it to their kids.

    I do agree that there are some kids who harrass the elderly people. The parents need to be aware of their children's behavior and speak with their children and the neighbor.

    What happened to this poor woman is awful and uncalled for....

    btw....welcome to the garden
    and as said before, these kids are harassing her, the parents are doing nothing nor even care about it.

    Think about it, if kids were constantly throwing balls over into your yard, at age age that you are.........would you like to keep running outside and throwing it back......would you not get sick of it........would you always have the time........

    If kids were deliberately doing this in our yard after being told not to......kids are not just kids as people think.......they need to be taught right from wrong.


    I`d keep that ball and every other one.

    If people didn't have fences the kids could go get their ball and she wouldn't have to worry nor care!

    If any of her property were not being damaged what would the difference be?

    I am a homeowner, there is no way I would want kids constantly running on my property yelling and screaming!
