As a woman there is something instantly recognizable about this kid's behavior. I've felt it before. Not having walked in a woman or elderly persons shoes, these boy can't but should realize that triggering sensation when a group of males drops their sense of decency from the safety of their numbers. For a woman or vulnerable elderly person even just two men suddenly dropping down their maturity level can feel extremely intimidating. Yes there is something about that, understanding that someone stronger than you, has just relinquished his sense of responsibility to a group and reverted to behavior that has lost a moral compass or sense of maturity, respect, and decency of other people - and the fear that you suddenly are in a situation that feels like a pack of wolves circling prey. I have felt that before. And I think most women will say that it trips off their intuition the moment it begins to happen and have felt it too. Two drunk men walking down the street behind you laughing or saying inappropriate things. A group of male teens laughing that screech filled barely out of puberty laugh and you really can't be sure what they are laughing at but you don't want to stay around to find out if it will be to victimize you. A couple of male superiors at work - elbow elbow 'teenage laugh'. Is there a name for this behavior? While the transcript says hey nothing has happened yet...there is certainly an un-namable threat taking place and a feeling that it will; When grown men stop policing their own behavior and begin to act like children; When men and teenagers about to be men - allow themselves to behave like jackasses and Hyenas; They have to be conscious of the way this comes off to others. This is called a social conscience, and if one possesses a moral compass - than they can't be without the latter. We know the dangers of group think. To the men of this world - think for yourself and don't allow the men you are with to drag your behavior into the mud. There is no excuse. In the end, the person who has to answer = you.
