Former NFL player wants to help 300 teens who broke into and trashed his homeBrian Holloway, a former offensive tackle for the New England Patriots, was in Tampa, Florida, over Labor Day weekend when his son told him he was receiving tweets about a party at their home in Stephentown, New York, Holloway said."I thought it was a joke," he told CNN on Thursday.But Holloway soon realized there was an underage party at his home."I'm looking at these tweets and they're saying, 'I'm partying with the NFL.' 'I've never seen so much alcohol in my life', 'I can't wake her up', 'Oh we're being busted. We gotta hide. Get rid of all the drugs.' " he said.
"They used a couple of different ways to enter the house. They broke and kicked in a couple windows. They came in through one back door. They took a ladder and came in through the window.""I blew past furious to what's important: How do we save these 300 lives that thought this was a good idea?" Holloway said.He began a campaign to not only hold the teens responsible, but to also address the problem of teen alcohol and drug use."So I used the same technology they did to communicate to them and unveil this conversation that was going on," Holloway said.He compiled a list of the tweets and photos from the party to identify the teens, and he created a website, www.helpmesave300.com."We have 170 tweets with people and their pictures, so we know who was there just by doing security searches with the sheriffs," Holloway said.As a result of his work with law enforcement, he says that 200 partygoers have been identified and the last 100 will be in the next few days."We knew some of the kids there because they've been up to the house before," Holloway said recalling gatherings he's hosted at his home before. "They just took it to another level."Holloway says parents threatened him after he posted pictures of their children online in an attempt to hold them accountable."Parents are upset with me when their child was in my house ... taking drugs, using roofies and drinking, and they're going to be upset with me?" he said in disbelief.This week, Holloway invited the teens to be accountable and help clean up his home in preparation for a military personnel picnic planned for this weekend that up to 1,000 people are expected to attend.Fifty volunteers showed up to clean up the home, but only one person who was there actually attended the party.

The dumbass little heathens already posted themselves all over the internet in the process of committing crimes.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
-General Omar Bradley, United States Army
