Out-of-control eshais are terrorizing Queensland's suburbs as they brag about their disturbing crimes in a series of online videos
Out-of-control eshays have taken to social media to brag about the crimes they committed with their friends.
Disturbing photos and videos have captured young people taking part in a range of actions, including fights, car thefts and anti-social behaviour.
Locals have had enough and have started a Facebook page highlighting the delinquents. Since the page was created in March 2023, more than fifty uncensored videos have been shared.
Stealing from stores, running from the police and smoking methamphetamine from glass pipes are also among the despicable acts that teens brag about online.
Although the account has amassed more than 13,000 followers in less than a year, its owner has come under fire from those featured in his posts.
One warned that someone will “come for you next.”

Other perpetrators came forward to comment on posts identifying them to use their new-found shame to gleefully claim and brag about the crimes.
A large part of the posts on the page are groups of eshays, which the page rejects because they are part of certain 'gangs', who pose for photos together in designer clothing.
Some images show children as young as 13 years old posing for the images.
In one post, they brag about luring an 11-year-old into public restrooms to rob him of his clothes and sell them online for “bud (marijuana) or drinks.”
Two videos on the page show a teenage girl and a boy separately smoking methamphetamine from a glass pipe.
Both videos generated responses from concerned social media users saddened by children smoking hard drugs.
One video showed a group of teenagers running from officers after the car they allegedly stole was stopped by police surges.
The vehicle was stopped so aggressively that the airbags deployed before one of the teens was heard saying “love you bro” and fleeing.
The caption of the video read: 'The boys texted them loving it coming home later we bailed (sic)', with many users targeting someone claiming to be part of those involved.
“They tried to nail us mate and got chased all the way from (Deception Bay) to Gympie,” the teenager wrote.
“Is this supposed to be cool or something?” one user commented.
“Oh to be as cool as her,” wrote a second.

Social media users praised fed-up locals for the teenagers' outing on the Facebook page.
“I followed your account just to see people doing stupid things. but after following your account for a while you are doing god's work,” the message read.
“The amount of things you've solved for the victims of the shit some assholes have done to people is astounding.”
Queensland Police confirmed to Daily Mail Australia that they are aware of the account.
The videos have highlighted an epidemic of youth crime in Queensland, leading to police vowing to “break the cycle of youth crime”.
Queensland Premier Steven Miles pledged to tackle the issue of youth crime in his first speech after taking over from Annastacia Palaszczuk in December.
Mr Miles noted the issue was “complex” but planned to “give young people the very best opportunities… (and) the right support at an early age.”
“I can't solve the youth crime problem alone, we need everyone to take action and we need to work together,” Miles said.
