While former NFL offensive lineman Brian Holloway was at his Florida home, hundreds of teens were gathering at his other house in New York.<>

At first Holloway thought the pictures on Twitter he saw of teens partying at his house were a joke but the tweets kept coming and he saw kids dancing on a table he bought with his Super Bowl winnings and he soon realized that it was no joke. Teens had broken into his house and were trashing the place. <>

During the cleanup, there were 10 55-gallon trash bags full of empty alcohol bottles and more than $20,000 in damages to his home. They punched holes in his walls, broke windows and sprayed graffiti on the walls.<>

Holloway is fighting back by posting the pictures of the teens on the Internet to identify them. He says he wants them to learn from their mistakes and make better choices.<>

But according to some news reports, a few of the parents of the teens are threatening to sue because Holloway’s website www.helpmesave300.com reveals the identity of their children.<>

In other words, a few parents are threatening to sue after their kids illegally broke into a man’s house, illegally engaged in underage drinking and illegally did damage to the man’s property and then gleefully posted it all on Twitter!<>

This is how low our litigious society has sunk. Kids break into a person’s house and trash the place and instead of trying to teach their children to do the right thing, some parents are threatening to file a lawsuit against the victim of their children’s outrageous behavior. <>

The United States is generally recognized as the most litigious society in the nation with a new

lawsuit being filed every 2 seconds. But if these parents actually do sue Brian Holloway after their kids helped create thousands of dollars of damages at an illegal drunken party – that would be a new low even for the most litigious nation in the world.<>
