No crime was committed? So I gather it's ok for someone to enter school property during the night, somehow make entry into rooms, remove property, relocate said property onto roofs of buildings and it NOT be considered a violation of the law. Now I'm not saying the kids should be strung up by their thumbs. I'm sure it was all in jest and in the spirit of "good clean fun", but has anyone ever heard of tresspassing?
Luckily none of the pranksters fell off the roofs and suffered injury or the story would porbably be about some parent suing the school district for "allowing" it to happen by blaming the school board for not having adequate security measures to prevent such occurrences.

I think it is hilarious. Let the kids have fun. Last year the Eustis kids got in serious trouble for their prank. The punishment was uncalled for. It is just a senior prank! As long as no one gets hurt, senior pranks are normal.

Well, look at that! Cypress Creek, my HORRIBLE school, makes big time news and even gets on 'Good Morning America.' It's about damn time there's a senior prank worth remembering during my years as a high schooler. What I'm not getting is why Susan Storch, the principal, is making this senior prank a larger deal than it really is.
The only thing that I can see as an actual crime--which isn't even such a big deal to begin with!--is the 'breaking and entering' charge. I'm stoked that the cops aren't getting involved; They shouldn't be. Hardly any property was damaged except for the teachers and volunteers who threw the desks and tables down from the portables. I happened to have a few classes in these portables. Anyhow, the seniors even wrote "SENIORS '09" on the boards. Quite amusing, if I say so myself.
Besides that, NOBODY was hurt and NOBODY necessarily vandalized much except for those desks and tables. And even so, it was hardly anything! The punishment for the guys involved in it is beyond unnecessary. It's a senior prank; It's BOUND to happen once again every single year. If you can't even do the early walk out of school before graduating, that's complete BS. It's harmless fun and most people took it as a fun joke.

In the end, it was hilarious; End of story.
