Most kids would served time in Juvenile home. Mailboxes are Federal property. It sounds like these boys just got a slap on the wrist. These boys know better. They all go to private schools,come from well priviaged families. These kids were bragging about the fun they had the next day.
These priviaged teens got to go home with their parents and sleep in their own beds like no harm was done. One mom walked her teen up to one of the home that were vandalilized and said they would replace What would have happened to the less privilaged teen? Juveneile home, fines and penalies for each mailbox?

Mailboxes are Federal property? Really? Show me where that's law? If so, why do we have to buy them? If they were federal property, they would be given to us. Please refrain from dispensing opinions on law. It's not becoming.
Privileged teens? I guess you wouldn't consider that fact that some parents actually try to act responsible and make their kids pay for their misdeeds. The families you are inferring are more than likely to raise hell with the victims than knocking their kid upside the head. Do you really think that having to replace mailboxes, or even worse, look their victims in the eyes, is their only punishment? You'll find out it 's going to be a long, boring summer for most of them.
The bottom line: This is how things used to be resolved, as it should be, regardless of whether or not a kid is "underprivileged" or not. Handcuffing 8 year-olds for something that happened at school should NEVER happen-yet that's what happens these days. You can thank a liberal for that.
