Earlier this month, residents of the curiously insular little Brooklyn neighborhood of Gerritsen Beach blasted local blogger Daniel Cavanagh for posting photos and incriminating Facebook comments from teenagers who allegedly threw eggs, potatoes, rocks and a hammer at cars on Halloween. At least one parent accused Cavanagh of being a pedophile because he took photos of the miscreants, and a raucous community meeting caught on tape by Sheepshead Bites made for engrossing theater. Someone later threw a pumpkin at Cavanagh's house, damaging the siding, and some community members told him in no uncertain terms that he should get the hell out of Dodge. He doesn't seem to have gotten the message.

This morning Cavanagh published this photo of one of the city's new bus shelters, which was allegedly destroyed by rock-throwing adolescent hooligans. Cavanagh claims that "all weekend long kids were throwing rocks at people, buses and cars again from Seba Avenue Park." One resident says:

Tonight I was at the skate park…a group of teenagers ages ranging 13-15 were throwing rocks, scooters, and pretty much anything else they could at busses, car services, and houses across from the skate park….I told them what they are doping is absolutely dumb…but they dont listen. I called 911, and no response. They continued to terrorize for almost two hours. No one cares. Sucks man. This neighborhood is funny, the parents dont give a !@#$ , and apparently neither do the police. Ridiculous..

They were throwing rocks at the bus shelter while a young man was sitting there waiting for the bus with his girlfriend. If it would have broke. you could have killed one of them. That's also very unintelligent of you all.

And Cavanagh also reports that the teens have been throwing rocks at cars parked at the radio controlled airplane field! In an editorial note, Cavanagh preemptively defends his reportage, writing, "People have accused GerritsenBeach.net of 'creating' these problems saying that they do not exist, have never existed and only exist because we wrote about it. They do exist, we are just the messenger. We hate these stories as much as you do because they are horrible to hear about and more horrible to know that it’s our kids. We only bring these stories to your attention to make you aware of what is happening in your community." Which is exactly what someone with a creepy broken glass fetish would say, right?
