Please do a follow up on this story. These people need to be charged, prosecuted and imprisoned. Their children need to be taken away from them as they are not fit to be parents. We are seeing an increase in this type of disrespectful acivity all over the country. Police, fire and EMS personnel are being attacked in larger numbers. It's time we got serious and aggressive in stopping this unacceptable behavior. If we don't these children grow up thinking it is okay to act this way.
