These "kids" very well could be parents themselves> There will always be losers in the world and hopefully not too many will affect your life

There will be enough to effect everyones lives. This is a disrespectful time, filled with entitlement, and loss of fear and respect for laws and authority... That goes back to upbringing... Parents are too busy living there lives and forgot to discipline there kids... Soooooo? Of cource we have this kind of incident happening... All over, not just one place... Ok off my soapbox..

Right on!! All the kids know today is how to take selfies and text. Their faces are constantly in an I phone.

Has anyone doubted the veracity of the story and pictures?

I shared with a person who flies, and the response was:

"I find that hard to believe. throwing a ball at a plane from that distance and in the water would be probable, and might come close, but I don't think a ball would make it to the rear stabilizer. It would have to pass over the wing and close to an engine, air waves around the leading edge of the wing would force a small ball away from the plane."

That was my first thought when looking at the first picture. Throwing a ball upward waist deep in water is difficult. 20 or 30 feet upward maybe. Ball might have went under the plane and a draft took it farther. There is no picture of it going over a wing.

It will be interesting to see if there is any follow up to this. While it is easily possible to make the initial throw, the height of the ball is questionable.

Take a deep breath, your generalization is WAY over the top. I live in a small college town, all the kids are very respectful.
