Perhaps they are 'freedom fighters' protesting all the fraud.

No, Herricks is not at all like Mastic. Its an upper middle class community and one of the best school districts on the island. The kids were probably just bored and wanting attention because their doctor parents are so busy working they dont give their own kids enough attention at home

Herricks is SO NOT like Mastic. I would strongly assume that the kids were bored, but, hey, whatever happened to playing video games...to set a fire, that is a problem...

Georgia 3rd graders smarter than a 15 and 16 year old from New York????

These two went about it all wrong - setting a fire at the school... sheesh! Why not just kill the teacher if they didn't want to take a test the next day?

Nice job parents raising a couple of immature firebugs. Off to the pokey with Bubba. Herricks happens to be one of the nicer towns on the Island. Very tony & posh. But arson can happen anywhere even in Herricks.

Herricks is a nice non commerical, dominated by residential (hence the high school taxes) community in Western Nassau that has a lot of parents who feel if theyre child recieved a bad grade, the teacher should be fired. I know, I went there. lol. Nice teachers if you give them a chance, whiney children.

Herricks is a good school.
I really don't think anyone should judge anyone school based upon two disturbed kids.
If both of them did something it was because they wanted to. It has nothing to to with the school or its teacher or its community.
Its mainly the kids' faults and they will learn their lesson. I think everyone should be glad that no one was hurt or injured.

Every school has a few kids or more looking for attention. Herricks is a good place with amazing kids and great staff. Who cares about cultural it has nothing to do with it being a great school district or not. It could have been any race.

and another thing that funny about all this is..everyone is saying that herricks is a good school..and its probably is one of the best in nassau..but it seems that it all depends on the demographics of the school who seems to get more of " oh those kids are bad" compared to what they are saying about these kids in herricks...but people fail to realize that you do have kids that arent all about being destructive and disruptive in classes..you do have those that want an education but are still put into the mix of those same kids from hempstead or wherever else and are put into that same category..its always going to be a double standard
