A group of teenagers has been caught on camera vandalizing shops in Seaside, Florida as they go wild during their spring break vacation. In the early hours of Tuesday morning, March 15, police published CCTV footage of youths causing chaos in the cloak of darkness.

I feel very confident that they will be found & held accountable.” Many social media users slammed these teens by calling them entitled and spoiled brats.
One person wrote, “spoiled demon spawn. I hope they are caught and their parents have to pay the highest of fines. This is what spoiling your crotch goblins gets ya! That gentle parenting works for everyone. Brats!😡” “Mommie and daddy will bail them out as usual. Every criminal that is guilty of a criminal offense needs to leave here with a criminal record that will hopefully haunt them the rest of their life,” another added. Someone wondered “who’s raising these entitled brats!” “Entitled brats. They probably drove the Range Rover there,” yet another person remarked.

i don't care if people like coming to florida for spring break but i just hate when they litter and ruin the beach— emily (@em_henriquez) March 8, 2017
Every spring break, college students are given time off from classes, and many of them spend it partying it up in popular beach destinations. They also frequently leave behind empty beer cans, liquor bottles, cigarettes, garbage, and damage to the beaches and marine life at the end of the week. Some cities have already started litter cleanup efforts or have prohibited alcohol during spring break season to prevent alcoholic beverage containers from littering their beaches.
