Kids without parent supervision. Parents need to get on their kids and make them stay home and study. If they have nothing to study, make them study the dictionary. I see where one person said they came from "the city" in the article and said they never had that happen there....Well, we never had it happen here before we got such a large influx of people either. It doesn't matter where their from. The blame goes to the parents not instilling good values into their kids. As for things being "petty stuff." Try to tell that to the neighbors this happened to. Things start small and get out of hand in no time. The local gov. needs to start cleaning up all the spray paint on the signs, building, and bridges as well. If the community would get togethere and start cleaning things up, these kids would know were they stand. Otherwise, it's like saying, "here's you canvas" to those brats.

I finally figured out what can be done to get a big decrease in vandalism. The borough needs to enact an 8:00PM curfew everynight for anyone under 18, since the parents won't. Make it that they can only be out after 8:00PM if they are with a parent/guardian. If they find kids out after 8:00PM without a parent, then take them to the station and have "Mom and Dad" pick them up. There's no reason they can't do that. The only exception would be teens who actually work at night.
