I've been harrassed by the teens in Kilkenny for about a year and a half. I have been mostly unable to write about it, and indeed almost unable to write about anything.
I don't know how much my inability to write has to do with being harrassed by the kids.
I do know that local teens have targeted me; and I know that the problem has metastesized. I know that they spread the word amongst themselves, and that I get ugly verbal abuse from people I have never seen in my life.
I've been trying to figure out what to do. Nothing I've done has made any apparent positive difference. My lack of definitive action has only given the problem a chance to evolve.
Opportunistic amorphous cowardly group thinking ...
