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.
I wouldn't call burning picnic tables vandalism. A better part of the park could have gone up in flames. And then tax dollars to pay the firemen would have been lost to a "mistake". Not to mention the wildlife that could have been lost. But I've been ignorant looking at the bigger picture.

Like I said in an earlier post, I made mistakes when I was a kid. But I never set anything on FIRE...and I respected property. I would hardly call stacking up picnic tables and torching them a "mistake". But ok Mr/Mrs Highhorse. Call it as you see it, as will I.

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

Actually they had a short leash on me. Anything else you want to say with no clue about my upbringing? Dumbass?

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.
She's just a dirt bag. She begged for a handout to pay her med bills. Get a real job bitch.

You guys are all out of your minds. Their names aren't given out for a reason. And its absolutely not the parents fault. I happen to know exactly who did it, but i'm not gonna give out any names. I don't see how any of you can try to blame the parents when they had no idea their kids were doing this kinda shit. I'd like to see you have a teenager and try to tell them what to do? You think their gonna listen? They always find ways around the rules or sneak out and get into trouble. Its part of being a kid. And as for the kids, they got into trouble and that's all that matters. The police handled this one so you guys should get the fuck over it.

Getting caught is the first step in their "correction". Lots of kids make mistakes and need to learn from them before they become adults and end up in jail. I hope these kids aren't repeat offenders.
