Pranksters usually show more imagination. This was just criminal behaviour.

Same thing happened at Lanier County High School (Lakeland, Ga). A highschool teacher was fired because of the senior prank. These students were not allowed to walk because they had not passed their graduation test so the teacher gave these students the key and security number and they wrapped lunchroom chairs in plastic wrap and the principals door in plastic wrap. They did not mess up anything but the teacher was fired.

Shelton (Chip) Smith was kicked out of Coffee High for problems looks like Fitzgerald High got the worst of him. He lives in my neighborhood in Broxton and is always tearing up the roads on his four wheeler. Maybe his parents will get him under control. But I doubt they can handle him. Now I worry about my kids safety with him around. Sorry for all the misspellings in the first post.

Why is it that when a bad student, as in BAD behavior, is kicked out of one school, another school nearby will take him/her? They do not LEGALLY have to take the student. Don't they know that this behavior at this age, ain't gonna change?

No, the boys opened a window in the ag dept before leaving school and came back in that way. They have them on camera coming in..although they had on hoodies, one of the boys was crazy enough to wear the same shirt the next day. That's how they were caught. There WAS NOT a pig put in the school. It was pig guts, which to me is worse.

To the girlfriend... when you deface property that doesn't belong to you, that's a crime and it's punishable by law. So it doesn't matter that it was a prank, they destroyed someone else's property. 5 even 10yrs down the road when this guy is in jail for crimes committed, will he still be wonderful when he leaves you holding the bag? People can change and I hope he learns from this mistake.... I will certainly be praying for our school and students in the coming days.....

They were 18 years old. And being immature but it was just a prank so really don't take it so seriously. They're all much more mature now. And none of them are criminals. J.s.
Bad Actions

For every action there is a reaction-A bad action leads to a bad reaction or bad result. A good action leads to a good reaction-It is illegal to deface or vandalize any goverment, federal or state facility and this includes the school which your boyfriend choose to vandalize. Therefore according to the laws his actions require severe consequences.If you do not see any harm in defacing property which does not belong to you than you have many hard lessons to learn through the years. Would you like it if someone climbed through your window and vandalized your property by leaving pig guts and other less than desirable things there? I imagine that if the same prank occured at your home- the reaction would lead to the arrest of the individual that committed such a travesty. A bad action demands a bad consequence or the next bad action may grow and be even worse.

You want to know what is funny to me. People on here are saying "they are just kids" well when they do something immature in your eyes then you will say wow you need to grow up. and I am 2 years younger than the boys that done this and I think it is mighty immature. I see doing a prank but destroying school property?
Just wondering
