    i should have used limberger...it's worse.

    And cheaper

    You can make blu cheese.

    Take a whole bunch of cottage cheese, mash it together in a sock and leave it in the basement for six months.

    I could see taping hotdogs to lockers and greasing doorknobs as a prank.

    Pissing on the floor is something else entirely.

    Re: High school senior class prank leads to 62 arrests

    Okay, this goes too far for a school prank. It's one thing to break into the school and do something silly like, I don't know, place cups of water everywhere in the hallways. That's something I wouldn't condemn my classmates for doing. I would probably engage in the prank myself. However, going as far as trashing your own school like that is too far. I hope they have to clean that place up.

    They were high school seniors. Some, if not most of them were 18 yrs old, legally adult in the eyes of the law. No juvie record for them; permanent adult record.

    I'd agree with others, some sort of fine, community service, and maybe doing work around the school as well. As long as they meet the conditions, expunge the records (as far as I could see that is possible with adult or juvie records). If they don't, then maybe look at jail (a few days or so, lets not go crazy) and keep the record.

    Xtreme community service.

    I think what needs to be looked at is how they were able to orchestrate - you know their personal electronics were probably very "helpful".

    I say in addition to full on cleanup, Negotiate a disarmament - adjust their phones to only call parental and 911.No text, no web.

    The clientele of the Teaneck 62 will matter--it always does.
    I suspect some of them were suffering from "AFFLUENZA", and a big-time lawyer will get them off.

    62 Seniors on a Thursday night--nice parent control there.
    I'd like to see what the pranks have been here in previous years, as teenagers specialize in outdoing stupid .

    Actually, you're wrong. It is burglary because they went into the building illegally with the explicit intent to commit an offense, vandalism and/or destruction of property. Burglary, despite popular belief, does not just cover theft. It can include any crime as long as someone has entered into a building just to break some law.

    Burglary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Burglary Overview - FindLaw

    Burglary is typically defined as the unlawful entry into almost any structure (not just a home or business) with the intent to commit any crime inside (not just theft/larceny). - See more at: Burglary Overview - FindLaw

    Learned this in my criminal justice classes. Took a lot of people, including myself by surprise too that this was the actual legal definition of burglary because most people assume that burglary must include some sort of theft.
