What has happened to our society? We have drug dealers prowling our streets and gang violence everyday, but we're going to spend our time charging high schoolers with felonies b/c we've become paranoid due to WMDs and too much media coverage. Punishment for the prank? Possibly. But to ruin their lives...ridiculous. I thought it was very creative as far as pranks go.
What's really sad is if they are charged, they'll probably serve a stiffer sentence than the true offenders in our society.

In light of Columbine, Va. Tech the consequence of this prank should've crossed someone's mind before the fact. If not, a felon, is a felon, is a FELON. Let the courts sort 'em out!!

As a society we need to spend more time protecting the innocent.

thats complete bull. its not like they were real, no one was ever in danger, and the fact that they could get punished so much is a misjudement. the police should go find some crack dealers and charge them.

Luckily crack dealing and bomb THREATS are treated the same way, serious criminal offenses. When it's all said and done your friends won't get much more than a slap on the wrist, lawyer fees (their parents will pay), and a much needed FXCKIN wake up call!!
