If you truly beleive that the punishment should fit the crime, then look up what the punishment is for what they did!! Second of all, these kids have no intentions of going to college. They only go to high school because they have to. I guess it is ok if they do not want to learn anything, but they are keeping other students from getting an education. That would include the ones that want to go to high school, and the ones that have plans to go to college too!!
you say that they are keepiing others forom gettin a education. in my opinion u don't get a education at trinity high school anyway

I was specifically asking you about the “could have” and “what if” parts of your comment that were used to reinforce your statement.

Again, are you advocating prosecuting someone for something that might have happened - not something that did happen? A pre-crime - thought crime - possibly could have happened crime?

Also, if a 16 year old is considered an adult in Federal Court, how then can the parents be held liable for the expenses? An adult should be responsible for their own expenses. Please explain.

Well first of all whoever called our great cheif of police a great pumkin said the very best thing i've ever heard about him. But my real question is concerning why the schools superintendant whitch is another Great pumpkin has to call the supercheif out to the school whenever anything happens? I agree the trinity high school students who did the bomb threats should be punished but i belive that the punishment should fit the crime. i've done my reacherch and these kids will not be able to get a state licens or have a job with the state for the rest of there lives. I remember when Mr. John Copley was superintendant the cops were never called to the school so don't yall think that a school should prepare kids for life not ruin it and send kids to colledge not jail???
The school didn't teach these kids to threaten lives with a bomb....GET REAL.

For starters, Mr. Bob, it was a baseless threat on a piece of paper. I don’t think anyone’s life was in danger.
Secondly, how could you possibly know what any of these kids had planned for their future? They probably don’t even know that yet. That’s why they are called kids or children - not adults. Are you stating facts about their intentions or just your personal assumptions?
Lastly, before 9/11, people would have thought this event was just a stupid prank. The students would have been punished accordingly. Now we think and act like lifetime subscribers to the “Fear Makes You Stupid and Hysteria is Normal channel.”
What do you want to do - send them to Gitmo?
Would this have been your answer IF a bomb had gone off? You take no chances and you punish according to the laws of our land.

So what you are saying is that because the community is so fed up with the numerous “events” that have taken place - has it been five - you believe the four kids in trouble now should receive the full brunt of everyone’s anger for all the events?
While everyone is so upset about the bomb threats - that were only words on a piece of paper - what about the one who was starting fires? Where is the “witch hunt” for that one? Starting fires seems to me to be a far greater danger to the lives of others than words on a piece of paper.
I think the ones who started the fires should be punsihed according to the law.

There seems to be a lot of anger about the amount of tax money and man hours wasted by our “homegrown terrorist.” Are these four kids - who were only involved in the two most recent events - expected to suffer for all the community anger in that area too?
Lets see how many wasteful “events” I can name - off the top of my head.
What ever happened to the person that embezzled thousands of dollars from TISD a few years ago? Was it $50,000.00 to $70,000.00 -? Did that person go to jail?
How many contracts is TISD still paying out - just to get rid of people - because of circumstances which were never made public knowledge? Did anyone go to jail?
Who’s bright idea was it to build a new building that would not be adequate just a few years later? Is that morally right, criminal or just stupid? Should somebody go to jail?
How many of you know about the thousands of dollars someone spent on a new science curriculum a year or so ago? It turned out to be worthless. Was that poor judgment, morally wrong or criminal?
All that money was wasted by adults and I don’t think anyone went to jail - please correct me if I am wrong on any of these points. I wonder how many other “events” are out there and not talked about - BUT, by God, these kids are going to pay for their stupidity.
If you know these facts, then you need to demand action from your school board.

Not by bad example of pointing and calling names.”
Wasted school instruction hours?
There is a lot of that happening on a daily basis. There are some teachers who have very poor classroom management skills. They need to be fired or helped - doing nothing just encourages more problems.
Showing our children the proper way to act?
Please re-read above example again.
Does throwing a fit in front of the entire cafeteria show kids the proper way to act?
Lets help the school system?
Do you mean by not honestly addressing some of the very issues that have contributed to where we are today? Are you saying - we have the culprits, now lets move on and pretend there is no problem?
There is a problem. Get on the school board and the teachers if you have a problem with them. But when a federal law is broken, punish according to the law. There is no law written on the books that says I can't jump on a table in the cafeteria if I'm addressing students and they are not listening. Now I may get addressed by school officials for not handling the problem in the way they want, but breaking a state or federal law, No. Listen, what would you guys have said if the bomb threat had been found, nothing done about it, "oh just a joke by a few innocent kids" and the whole d a - n school had blown up with your kids in it. You wouldn't be hollering for the law to do something. NOT....

No true. False statement. I know for a fact that there are students who go on to college and have great careers. One of the kids that graduated with my daughter is now studying for his doctorate. That is a FALSE STATEMENT.

A bomb threat found in any form IS NOT A PRE-CRIME. It is a "crime punishable by law". Do you understand that?

I think they should get a life sentence and be put away with the rest of their kind for the rest of their lifes either that or get the DEATH PENALTY. That way they can no longer be a threat to our children.

Civil Penalties, Civil Lawsuit ..etc
Under Criminal Law: He / She is an adult.
Under Tort (Civil)Law: Unless he / she (the Child)has been emancipated by the court, the Parents are financially liable for the damages of their minor child.

I agree with the ones of yall who are saying that it is just harmless words on a piece of paper. Besides did Bin laden write a threat before he took out the twin towers... NO!!! If the kids were crazy enough to blow up the school they would not care about evacuating everyone and make a threat to warn everyone to leave before they blew it up. They would probably want to blow everyone up with it.

On a more positive note i would like to congradulate the "Great Pumpkin" and his Pumpkinettes or whatever they would like to be called on the drug busts that they have been doing. while we all may point out the bad i think that we should also look at the good that they are doing for our community.

for the people on here that don't beleive they should be punished accordingly, this is the very reason why they did it inthe first place because they thought they could break the law and get away with it because you people don't hold the kids accountable. any time yalls kids get in trouble yall step in so they don't get punished so therefore the staff at the school are unable to enforce the rules and take control of the schools

I think that the kids involved in the bomb threats shouldn't recive as strict of punishment because, classifying them as terrorist is something that would stick with them for the rest of there lives. In the Bible god teaches us to Forgive and Forget. I think that this is a great principle to live our lives by. If You Commit a major sin againt god your not banished from heaven. I think these kids should be gaven a second chance. But don't take this as I don't think they should be punished. I think that they Should be but the punishment shouldn't stick with them for the rest of there lives.

as high school kids or young adults they know the differnce between right and wrong, yes they should be forgiven but still be punished accordingly. they knew it was wrong when they did it but didn't care. being classified as a terrorist is extreme but they should of thought of that before they did that. this crime isn't the only crime that sticks with young adults, for example if you assalt someone, that stays with you as well as many other crimes. sure they wish they wouldn't have done it now but they did and now they do have to carry it just like any other young adult would if they commited any other crime
