Facebook turns party into riot

There are many reasons not to advertise sensitive information on the internet, one of which being the possibility that a police helicopter will be summoned to your home.

Reports indicate that a party initially intended for seventeen erupted into a riot of hundreds of people. Hampshire police arrived on the scene, armed with the dog squad and a helicopter in an attempt to diffuse the situation.

Two teenagers, Jordan Wright, 17, and Seva Nureva, 15, are responsible for throwing the party.

The claim is that the party, which was posted on Facebook, was not intended to draw such a crowd. Allegedly, it was only meant for a small amount of people. Though, as with many things posted on the internet, the situation was then blown out of proportion.

Rioters broke property in Jordan's home, initiated fights in the streets and vomited in his bedroom but the boy remains oddly proud of the situation:

"I have no regrets at all. It was a great party. I am well proud that people are saying it cost the police £10,000. My mates are saying what a sick party it was - the best yet. "

The families of the children are apologizing to the community while public outcry calls for them to be held responsible for the £10,000.

wft's with his Facebook page... I guess he must have his address on there (not clever) and have it viewable to basically everyone (asking for it!) . I reckon they should be held responsible for the £10k cost, simply because the guy didn't acknowlage this was a problem and that "someone" would have to pay for it (currently the taxpayers, I assume).

Should just have taser'ed them all :-)

Well worth £10K IMHO.

And yeah stick boy looks well 'ard in his picture :P

"I have no regrets at all. It was a great party. I am well proud that people are saying it cost the police £10,000. My mates are saying what a sick party it was - the best yet. "

Oh, these teens are simply retarded, £10,000 is not a small amount of money. £10,000 for to be famous for at most a couple of months is not a good deal at all.

I can't seem to recall any party - usually set as open events mind you - being rampaged into over here in Toronto, which used to boast one of Facebook's largest city networks. Guess it's a regional thing then?

How did I guess it was the UK?

So sad what has happened to the country I once called home, in the 20 years I have been away.
Let's hope that the next, non-labour, government can turn things around.

"I have no regrets at all. It was a great party. I am well proud that people are saying it cost the police £10,000."

Aaawwww... Children say the darndest things!

"I am well proud that people are saying it cost the police £10,000"

not the police dummy, The tax payer foots the bill for this stupid stunt. nothing funny about it. well prehaps that you had some random dude puke on your bed but thats nothing to be proud of. ..

Facebook is a great website. That is, if you interact with friends over the internet. For instance, if I attend a party, the next day I will come home and check my feed- there will be photos uploaded for everyone that attended. Awesome. You don't have to jot down a girl's number anymore, just find them on Facebook :-)

If I had my way I'd shutdown facebook, burn the servers and throw those two twats in the nick. Too much junk on the net.

Can you do that to MySpace instead of Facebook? I rather enjoy Facebook where as MySpace is just an on going battle on who can post the most worthless crap or as to why a phone, MSN, AIM, eMail, etc. is too much trouble just to talk to a friend/family. (Btw, my Grandma doesn't have a MySpace so no you can't add her).

lol

Lol, they should be fined that much for just looking like they do.

To those saying "Spoilt", they aren't... their families are almost always poor, living off benefits in council homes. They steal the expensive things they own.

I just love how if this story took place in the USA that everyone would be bashing on Americans...saying how spoiled we all are...etc, but since it did not there are no stereotypes. I love it.

I live not that far from where this happened and the attitude is typical of the chav kids around here, it's a damn disgrace. They think it's a badge of honour to cause this much hassle and intimidate the residents.

This area is doing down hill badly and lived here all my life so know first hand on that fact.

i don't see why his attitude has such an impact on his guilt as perceived by the public.
just because he's not pretending to be sorry so that people will sympathise?

the police are just doing their job. that's what they're paid for. just because you don't like the kid doesn't mean you should be hitting him with a 10 000 pound fine based solely on his attitude rather than the objective circumstances.

that said, after an awesomely atypical response like that, he should probably be forced into a long conversation/counselling about responsibility, how taxes and police wages work, and why his immature/inconsiderate initial response was inappropriate. he's a kid. you teach him. you don't put him in ridiculous debt because you don't like his attitude.

Kids these days doesn't understand what they're doing, something goes overboard and they think it's cool.
I love the fact that both subscribers that supported them were just under the age of 25 and in a "party" age; they can drink alcohol legally and enter clubs.

They have to take responsibility; Why wait till something even worse happens?

Sure that was a sick party and you are proud of it. Now you can be even more proud that you are paying for sick party with a sick job which comes with no release till the bills are paid off.

They could have not let the strangers on their property and called the police on the "trespassers". But that wouldn't have been "cool"!

No, they are.

I sure didn't post his party inv to facebook.

Could make him do community service. I don't think a week spent scrubbing graffiti off walls would make him proud.

or the guy that just had his art washed away....

I'm surprised the cops released their names, they're minors (or would be in the US).

I think they kinda did it themselves with those comments. :P

This is not a joke, but this was actually in my ROAD!

I am quite glad I wasn't there on Saturday or I wouldn't have known what the crap was going on :O

Jeeeesus, first I've heard of it! Perhaps I need to look into moving...

Alot worse then this but, police cars smashed, other cars smashed, general property damage. Party owner turns into mini celebrity.

hahaha...

they look like a bunch of stuck up brats if you ask me... they should have to pay and be held responsible for anything that happened or had to happen to "control" the party

Just ****ing make em pay the 10k quid, i'm sure they wouldn't consider the party such a great success after that.

If it hadn't been for the snarky "I am well proud that people are saying it cost the police...." comment, I would say this was out of their control and a slap on the wrist would be sufficient. But after seeing that comment, they should absolutely be responsible for it. Spoiled brats.

I think his comment was perfect.

Imagine yourself in the situation, expecting a few people... then slowly more and more people start showing up. I know I'd be thinking, "This is so cool!"

Sure a few minor incidents happened, but just because it became public and the news and authorities are involved it doesn't mean you need to bend to the public's opinion and apologize or feel guilty. If you enjoyed the experience, why should you feel sorry? The fact has already been established that the kids only meant for a few people.

What in the world makes them spoiled?

The fact that they are proud to cost tax payers £10,000. There is no question one is spoiled if they never have to take responsibility for their actions.

In my opinion, if any one can say "'I'm proud my Facebook party cost police £10,000". They are spoiled in the sense that they have no concept of the consequences of their actions. It's the whole "Oh, it's ok, I'm not going to be paying for it, so I don't particularly care" thing that I think is wrong.

Right...so...in the future, you know when they're adults...and something happens that's "unexpected" yet absolutely predictable, they should automatically not be held accountable for their actions because "they didn't know". Are you kidding me? What an absolutely backwards way of teaching your child responsibility and accountability.

Seems these two aren't the only ones spoiled.

IMO, this whole "being punished for something you had absolutely no control over" idea is almost amusing.

What is to be learned from this situation? They have to be afraid about having parties now because unexpected things may happen?

As for the 10k, it doesn't say what that was for. Did it cost that much for the police to leave their station, drive to the house, and tell the people to go home? Ok, they had to break up a fight or two maybe.

My point is, we can't go judging these kids because of an article.

I love the way your with the gansta and his gang, stating the noble "innocent until proven guilty" and pointing at the newsbringer. Yet, you do seem to love the way a kid has acted, and you seem to share the enthusiasm that he thought throwing a party that is costing £10k to other people is "very cool".

Don't confuse this with "it cost people £10k", this is absurd because he loves the fact that it COST £10k, rather then the party itself.

They should be afraid of having parties that get out of control.
If you throw a party, you are responsible for the people there. If you let some strangers in, that's your problem. If those strangers pick a fight -- you guessed it, YOUR PROBLEM.

They DID have control over it. That's what you fail to see...
If the party gets out of hand, start kicking people out or call the cops.

As for the fight(s?), yeah it's the responsibility of the host to take care of that. But for all we know, he everything could have been going fine, he was inside, some lousy neighbor freaked out and called the cops (I've had crappy neighbors freak out for no reason before), then the cops show up and they happen to witness a fight start before the host even knew there was a fight. Next thing we, the public, know... we're reading about how this party had fights going on and the person who started the party didn't do anything about it.

Yes, the fact that he commented about being "proud" of costing the authorities 10k is messed up. As easy as it is to let this word completely turn the story around, why let it?

Really? They couldn't control the amount who showed up, true. But, they could certainly tell people who weren't invited to leave. And if they didn't, they could certainly call the police before the number of people reached into the hundreds. They showed exceedingly poor judgement. Instead of inviting specific people, they put it out there for anyone, and everyone showed up. Yeah, there mistake, their responsibility. But, as usual, they probably won't have to pay any restitution. The whole notion of personal responibility seems to have disapeared from the world. He didn't have the fortitude to say, "Hey, I obviously didn't think this through that well. I'm very sorry for the damage and mayhem caused. I will attempt to make it up as best I can." I wonder if his dad tried to teach him to nut-up and admit his mistakes?

Because being a teenager, he should be held accountable for his actions. Children today stab each other, bully each other and show little to no respect for adults. There are consequences to your actions, regardless of the fact you may or may not have known what would happen, those consequences still exist. Sure children have been rebelling for decades. But it's not the same anymore.

Since it's become taboo to spank your child, children have become total monsters. We stop spanking our children and SURPRISE!! they're stabbing each other at school every other day, they're bullying people worse than ever, they're telling the grandma who's sitting on her porch quietly knitting to go f*** herself while throwing stones at her etc.

Spoiled...brats. As the generations pass, they're getting worse because of our failure to show them there are consequences. And yes, I'm referring to spanking their ass when they're doing something and or have done something they shouldn't. I was nowhere near a perfect child, but I learned my lessons well, after my father beat me to a pulp. And that was only 17 years ago. These kids should feel lucky they don't have to go through that, but they certainly shouldn't feel proud that they caused such a ruckus and or that the tax payers have to fork out for their night of fun. Give me a flippin' break.

PLUS- Its his problem for announcing the party on FB, he had to have known what would happen. C'mon, do you think the "uninvited guests" found his home through ESP or mind-reading? My FB account doesn't have my home address or other personal info, and if it did.. it would be restricted to viewing by ONLY those in my friend list, not available to the FB public like this moron!

They could've controlled the amount of people that showed up by NOT announcing the party on facebook and making their home address public. How in the heck do you think the uninvited guests knew where he lived? Its really easy to make a facebook account secure enough so that the ENTIRE facebook community doesn't have access to your personal info like this moron!
