Prank backfires for Hyde Park volunteer firefighters

Three volunteer firefighters from Hyde Park are facing charges for what they say was a practical joke, but what police are calling simple assault.

"Simple Assault"? Are you kidding me? I suppose that is what actually happened, but it was about to become a kidnapping. "Attempted kidnapping" sounds more like it to me. It's really sad that when there is already a shortage of firefighters, this boy and any others who hear this story are going to give fire stations a wide berth. If these guys are not xcharged as felons, it speaks to the cosy relationship with the police.
Hazing and initiations are well known to have a strong sexual component. These rituals help establish pecking orders. This situation could easily have escalated to a rape situation, if that was not already part of their plan. These things have a tendency to spiral out of control, as most reasonable people know. I hope these guys never go back to firefighting - I wouldn't want them near me or mine! These predators need to be locked up.
