    Yes...I'm suggesting police officers should no longer respond to alarms.

    I never did those things but did do the fake rope across the road thing, placed dead fish behind hubcaps/wheel covers or let the air out of tires (by removing the valve stem core). The idea was always to make mischief without risking the police getting involved. Some went a bit further like using antifreeze to write on lawns and draping toilet paper over trees/bushes or relocating lawn decorations/furniture (swapping them between homes) but not anything irreversible or costly to clean up/fix.

    Kids idea of 'fun' has changed massively in the intervening years.

    Make them clean it up, pay for damaged goods, do X number of hours community service, and let the parents add their punishment on.

    Thoughts on punishments here.

    Should parents be held accountable?
    Legal arrest records?
    Official charges?

    Just a high school prank?

    Let kids go with a wrist slap?

    They're just being kids?

    Enough is enough with these young punks - throw the book at them?
    They should make reparations, pay for all of the damage they've done with money that they (not their parents) have earned , do some community service and repair damage that other people have done but not been caught.

    This should be a learning experience for the teens. Putting them in juvenile hall isn't likely to be as good of a lesson as having them repay the school.

    That sure sounds less like a prank and more like vandalism to me.

    One definition of prank is "a harmless trick performed for amusement."

    The word harmless is kind of key here.

    My dope smoking colleagues and I came in early one day of some importance [I no longer recall nor care] and reset all the clocks from the master in the office.

    They didn't figure it out for two days....which demonstrated why we did it in the first place...but it was 1967 and the Summer of Love was just starting.

    This just demonstrates these kids haven't grown up.....

    Destruction of property isn't a prank, it's a crime.

    Stupid law enforcement. Stepping in when a crime has been committed. How dare they.

    I say send them to jail so they learn that the adult world doesn't tolerate this bull****.
