Group Photo Mystery

Why are these lads all assembled for this photo opportunity?

Answer after the jump.

It was a group mug shot, after they trashed a house during a party.

Full story here.

And today, after trashing a house you get to sue the owner for stocking his house with booze and kewl stuff that enticed the assholes kids to break in in the first place.

Too bad we don't have enough room to tell the tales of what happened to these fine, upstanding young men, like at the end of "Animal House."

I like how a magazine slanted to the interest of black people runs a story on white kids running wild in the suburbs. It does counterbalance the stories of black kids doing the same in the inner cities. Unfortunately, Ebony was not a part of what we now call "mainstream media" so the story only reassured the readership that their kids were not the only ones involved in anti-social activity.

Sorry, didn't mean to take up all the argument. It's just my POV.

Thought it was a fraternity group picture, not far off.

I got a kick out of the hair product ads in the Ebony magazine which ran the article. The advertisers definitely had a target audience in mind.

Me too, patty, but not just any fraternity. ΔΤΧ. Although I don't see John Blutarsky.

I was thinking fraternity picture as well.

If you scroll down two pages from the original article they have one from my home state of Oregon. I can't help but laugh at the caption describing a riot of 1,000 disorderly youths. Seaside's population today is less than 6,500 and it hasn't been shrinking.
