Once Upon A Time...

In the small quaint town of Port Lavaca, there lives a group of children whose intentions are to do no good. They come out before dusk overflows the entire town and spread their terror throughout the dirt roads and countryside lanes.

This is all, of course, completely fictionalized; however, one post on the community Facebook page: 'Port Lavaca Listens,' caught fire as it tried to paint a malicious picture of a small group of children.

The Post That Started It All

The post included a photo of three children playing on the bayfront, doing what looks like skipping rocks; you know, having fun and being kids. The post included a few emotionally fueled lines as well and read, "SMH...people always ask why Port Lavaca don't have nice things! Fine example right here. These kids are over here throwing all the rocks into the water."

Community Reactions

In no time, people started commenting on the post. The original post complained about the children ruining the bayfront and throwing away rocks that taxpayers buy, but people were not buying that complaint. Users immediately began defending the children and one of their own past-time favorite activities.

RJ Pruitt posted an update saying:

"I can’t fall asleep. Can’t stop thinking about the crime at the bay. Insane. #justicefortherocks"

 

Some couldn't believe the audacity of the post. Many people pointed out that kids could be doing so many worse things, and this group of kids was doing nothing wrong; they were just happy, fun kids throwing a few rocks in the water.

The post generated tons of attention from community members and blew up into something hysterical. Users turned to sarcasm and humor to play with the original post

Is It Right Or Wrong?
