Social Media Reacts to Ocean City Boardwalk Stabbing

People have been reacting in large numbers to the news of a stabbing on the Ocean City Boardwalk. Here's a sample of comments seen on Facebook on Sunday morning...

I’ve been a resident or visitor my whole life. This is totally unacceptable. No unchaperoned minors on the boardwalk after dark, PERIOD.


PARENTS this is on US!! We all know the “old days” are gone. KIDS ARE DIFFERENT!! Kids have a BIG sense of entitlement, have very little respect for authority, have a very loose curfew if any, and social media.


Thank the governor who put the new law in place that cops can’t do anything to juveniles so they can do whatever they want.

@jpm5041 These damn hood rats wont be happy until ocean city is destroyed. These kids are deplorables. I feel so bad for the elderly who get caught in this… ocean city NJ 12th and boardwalk. #oceancitynj #OCNJ #fight #stabbing ♬ original sound - jpm5041
