This school seems to make the news often....St Charles East students must be very proud of the stupid acts they are famous for. For a new school they are IHSA champions for poor behavior and judgement.

Take the cars away from teenagers. They aren't mature enough to handle the responsibility.

Some children don't have the concept of bodily harm becuase it looks so easy when it is done on TV. Their parents never told them what acting was and what stunt men do.

This is nothing new. Teenagers have been doings things that border on lunacy and idiocy since time in memoriam. This is no different. Hopefully if his brains and body are not scrambled eggs, he will have learned a very painful lesson.

Saint Charles North is the new high school. East is the old one.

The article says that drugs and alcohol weren't involved in the incident. People forget that one of the most powerful drugs is "stupidity"... it can make you do all sorts of dumb things, and it never gets out of your system.

Learn to read. They were from STC North, not East. North is the newer school.

you all can sit here and type about how stupid the kid is until your kid does it. Have you ever seen the show j-a-c-k-a-ss? When I was that age, I would do a whole lot of things I wouldnt do now. Its called maturity. Lets just hope this kid lives to learn from his mistake. Dont ridicule someone for doing something stupid. EVERYONE has done stupid things.
