There are any number of wholesome ways to bond with your brood. Teaching them the finer points of the drive-by shooting probably shouldn't be one of them. That didn't stop 43-year-old Susan Becker piling her two teenage children into a car along with another teenage friend, arming the lot with pellet and BB guns and encouraging her posse to fire on parked cars.

Becker bought the toys for her 13-year-old son and 15-year-old daughter, and a 15-year-old friend tagged along for the ride. All told, the team damaged at least 60 cars in and around Long Island as they fired from Becker's minivan.

Police received reports from Islandia, Hauppauge and Commack communities, and some residents reported their windows smashed. Law enforcement used surveillance video to identify Becker's minivan and arrested the woman for multiple crimes, including endangering the welfare of a child and criminal mischief. Watch the local news report below.

      I would say someone should do the same to her minivan, but its probably some early 1990\'s, dodge grand crapvan thats in poor condition and on its last leg of life. Jail time will suffice!

      I'm pretty sure this woman's a sociopath. I feel for the people whose cars were damaged by these jug-heads.

      I don't understand the entertainment value of blatantly disregarding the property of others. I don't necessarily agree with putting her in jail. In fact, I think a few hundred hours of community service sounds like the perfect sentence. This woman obviously don't understand the amount of work that people do to have nice things, so maybe after picking up a million McDonalds bags from the side of the road, she will learn to disapprove of such disrespectful behavior. Additionally, I hope the cops gave the victims her information so they can pursue her in civil court for restitution.

        Geez, this post makes it I sound like I went to school with this lady. "Obviously don't" should be, "obviously doesn't."

        i couldnt agree more, the movie was funny & scary (since we are on a direct path to level).... Gatorade will be better for plants than water.

      I'd recommend she reimburse every single deductible that was paid due to her crime spree... except that she probably can't afford it, and will have to go on welfare and what not.

      Hate to say it but it looks like a common American sentiment of entitlement along with envy gone wrong. Basically the have-nots taking their situation out on the haves to "even" things out. You'd be surprised how many people hold something against people that live a "better" lifestyle. Otherwise maybe her brother owned the local safelite glass repair?
