They should put the parents names up, then maybe parenting skill would improve. Its unlikely, but its a thought.

The names of the kids as well as the names of their parents should be NOT be released to the public ! "Juvenile Offender" status is important, young kids sometimes make a mistake !

That's stupid that they were released to their parents. APPARENTLY their parents weren't watching them in the first place so they aren't gonna learn their lesson. I think they should've went and stayed a day or two in jail to wake those kids up especially when they made derogatory remarks relating to the shootings in Herkimer and Mohawk. This is what is wrong with society today. Kids think they can do whatever they want and not suffer any consequences.

So you expect children to not learn by making mistakes? have you not realized that ALL kids go out on their own at some point in life. not every child acts up but most people do things they regret. Maybe you should have kids of your own and stop sounding so high and mighty dumb@$$.

Not every kid does this!If you don't know what your kids are doing and you think its okay for them to make this kind of mistake you are as messed up as these kids and you should seek help!!!Buy now they should know the difference between right and wrong!They should put there names in the paper so everyone can see what kind of kids they are!!And as part of there punishment they should be cleaning every park in ILION all summer long!And Russell park is a nice quiet place to take your family!!!!Well up to now!

So hay Dude is that you Deputy Mayor Neale? Been at village meetings where it didn't matter who came from the public, you still called the kids in the village all little bastards. It's so kind of you but then again we've been at the Elks and you call the residents two legged cockroaches. Such a classy woman the residents elected.

the village gave the kids one huge party spot when they close the rd off to the park no clue why they do that but if there was traffic going thru their they prolly wouldnt been able to burn the tables in shit so the village asked for that

Who did more harm and whose name should be printed? The juvenile dilinquents or the adult village employee that was investigated by the Village Attorney Both cases costs taxpayers thousands. Print both, and as you say," put the gossip to good use.

I am NOT a politican of any form. I am a former resident of Ilion. And yes, I did make mistakes when I was a kid. And when I did, I was punished properly. BUT HOWEVER...I DID NOT go burning tables and vandalizing public property. I DID NOT damage anyone elses property. We had respect, unlike the little bastards that are running around now. Im sure a little time-out session will fix it all though.

And yes, I believe that when juveniles get nailed for things like this, the PARENTS names SHOULD be put in the paper. Maybe then they would put down the joints and beers and start doing some parenting...then there wouldn't be damage that the taxpayers tax dollars have to pay for.

Its really sad how the whole Ilion community has let the park go to shit over the years. Theres not many towns that have anything as nice as Russell Park. There use to be multiple spots for familys to have cookouts and there would always be something to do up there. Iam not saying what thhose kids did was right but they painted on an old nasty bathroom that was very nice at one time but the village refuses to maintain and let go to shit,its been locked up for years.Iam surprised kids were even outside in the first place,i never see kids playin in the streets like when i was a kid,wtf. BTW i'd be happy to go paint the building myself but this village is so corrupt i would probally get arrested.

It sounds to me like the trash of the village is on here wanting the "little bastards" to pay a hefty price for what they did. Should they get in trouble for vandalizing? Yes. Community service sounds about right. You people should listen to yourselves. Kids are not bad kids, they make bad choices. It's ignorance like I see in this forum that results in unnecessary punishiment rather than rehabilitation. Look at the area we live in. It has gone to shit in the last few years. Parents are not being parents and children are the latchkey kids of society. What do you do when you get bored and have no parental guidance? You find trouble. It is a well known fact that the rational thinking part of the brain does not develop until approximately the mid 20s. Yes, teenagers can discern between right and wrong. But many do not think of the long term effects of their consequences. Do you think most children who come from loving homes do this kind of stuff? Or is it the children who are dealing with abandonment issues from not having their parents around and thus turn to drugs and other illegal activity to deal with the problems they are unable to deal with on their own. You all need to get a clue and stop being so judgmental and ignorant. People make mistakes and the point is to learn from them. I highly recommend that you seek higher education and start learning about the real issues of society instead of taking the old fashioned standpoint of an eye-for-an-eye.
