The saddest thing is the kids actually got caught playing ding dong ditch! What has become of the youth? Nobody ever gets caught doing this. You got to run faster kids. What a shame.

With a title like that the jokes fit. First it's ding dong ditch, then mailboxes are destroyed, then worse. The SPD did the right thing to tell the kids to stop because it obviously bothered someone enough to call them. What if the caller was an elderly person or something. Geez.
