Where the heck is the video?? I want to see it.

Although my parents used to talk of Onion Town when I was kid, when I think back on it now, it sounds like they were describing the movie Deliverance.

Where the video?

This is the dumbist story ever. Oniontown? For real? Stoning people in the streets?
In the eighties, I was chased by marauding yutes and hit over the head with a sock full of rocks and that was upper east side of manhattan. It has happened to me in Atlanta and Portland as recently as 2001, i.e. getting beat up or close to it by marauding youths. It happens all the time where youths go on hormone rages and commit felonies for which they get no time or training and end up getting away with heinous acts committed against weaker or perceived weaker people or facts than themselves.

The whole dynamic lends itself to a lack of education and investment in thereof. The future relies on the yutes to lift off into space when the earth is covered with water, however long it takes.

Let's vote twelve to eighteen year olds into summer school and school all year, like a work week or community college schedule at four days per week in compacted learning and exercise programs.

Anything to keep them out of the way and not e.g. motocross in a dog park, like what took place recently on a Saturday in Maine just as school was being let out for summer.

you tube bans the video immediately when it gets uploaded on their servers.

just search, "oniontown adventures" on google... you will find it hosted somewhere else.

Went to this shit hole last week with a couple of friends. I hate people that dont know shit about anything posting comments. First off its not really a town it is a hundred square yards of pure TRASH. The houses are falling down and there is crap strewn everywhere. Think of it more as a neighborhood. I am tired of people trying to defend these people. If you had a house in your neighborhood that never cut the grass and threw trash all over their yard and let their house fall apart I am sure you would start taking action against them. And I am a 100% sure that neighborhood kids would rag on it. Its the same thing. I mean jeez. Yeah they are poor, yeah maybe they weren't given the same opportunaties as most but they still attend public schools. This is all the opportunity you need to better yourself. And the fact that the area is a run down shit hole shows all you need to know about the people living there. It shows that these people are lazy and have no wants at all of bettering themselves :point said. I mean shit people from the American revolution to the war on Iraq we are a people that tries to better the lives of others that is just how America rolls. Saying stay out and leave them be is more wrong then what these kids did. These people needed a wake up call and maybe these videos will serve the purpose.

There are parts of Oniontown, more specifically the parts of the road that split off from the main, that are private property. They traveled on it, that's trespassing. This kids caused the injuries of other teenagers for there little antics.

Leave them alone, just because of who they are or theirr style of living. Who has the right to cast down The folks living on Oniontown Rd? I personally have encountered folk that live on that road and never have had an issue with them, ever. These kids were stoned by other kids, it is no litmus for what that place is really like.

Everone thinks they are so civilized but it's not evident by they way most of you react to this.
