Just had a kid at bus stop throw a rock at me. Turned around and reamed him out. Not sure about next steps. Call school? Cops? Let it go and hope the verbal lashing sufficed? See what happens tomorrow? I'm shaken. Thoughts?

I would contact the school and tell them what happened and what stop/time it was. The kids parents need to be told. What's next, he throws a rock from an overpass.

He didn't hit you? Call the school ask for the coach and tell him not to take little billy for the team.
:lmao:

If he was able to hit a >10mph moving target from >10 yards, then I know of a few colleges that need this kid's number.

Turning around, going back and reaming him out was enough, he wasn't expecting that. He'll think twice about it next time the urge hits him.

If it were me, I'd stop by the school and talk with the principle. Throwing rocks at cars or especially bikes is dangerous. Some things shouldn't go unpunished. This is one of those things.

Kids gotta learn. As a kid I got plenty of lashings and spent many months as a teenager grounded in my room for the stupid **** I've done. Thankfully my parents cared enough to punish me. Otherwise, I never would have learned consequences before it was too late.

Did your reaming include "If you put a dent in my bike, I'll put a dent in you"?

I would contact the school. A reaming was probably enough but a follow up from the school will just reinforce the message.

About eight years ago some kid threw a rock at my car. Should I have come here for advice, too?
Leave this one alone Brad. This is a valid motorcycle related question, and the question can elicit different opinions from those who ride and those who do not.

Reamed him out? Didn't know thats legal or you were even like that.

Carry an egg with you. Next time you see him, crack it open on top of him.

ORRR

Throw the rock back

Verbal warning to anyone under 17 and they'll probably just laugh at you. Going to the school will result in the same thing, probably nothing

"Back when I was a boy...", such actions were punishable by a bloody nose or a black eye, and you knew it before you threw the rock. Not many people threw rocks. :)

"Throw something back" has to be a joke answer.

I'd follow up -- school ------> parents. If they refuse to do anything, I'd try to find a sympathetic police officer to pay the family a "friendly" visit.

The kid probably saw this as harmless fun. Maybe your talk with him made an impression; maybe it didn't. Unlike school, parents, and, if need be, the cops, you do not have any authority over him. Someone with the ability to make his life a holy hell should reinforce your message.
