    Re: High school senior class prank leads to 62 arrests

    As for punishment, I feel that definitely community service should be "awarded" to all plus some sort of fine. At the very least, between them they should have to pay for any costs the school has had to spend to clean this up. Probably should be more.

    ...what is the deciding factor? Its a parent job to give tough love...not the judicial system.

    How should one decide if one kid deserves not to have a "mark" on their record, and one that does not deserve that same consideration?

Zero tolerance means these kids will probably be suspended perhaps for the rest of the year, seniors will not be allowed to graduate with their class, they may be charged with juvenile misdemeanors depending on the damage - maybe light felony's. The days of pranks during or at school went away last in the 1980's, probably never to return.
    I can forgive all but pissing on the floors. That needs punishment of cleaning the halls 3 times a week for six months.

    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?
    Through the book at them, let them learn this lesson hard now before they find themselves in positions of importance.

    Malicious Mischief or some-such charge. Parents held accountable for damages because no responsible parent has high school kids running around at 2 AM in the morning on a school night (especially). Permanent juvenile record.

    Evidence is the deciding factor thus we have trials/hearings. If the evidence presented by the state indicates that the accused violated the law then a judge, or in some cases a jury, decides their fate. The accused are quite welcome to plead their case, offer any evidence that may counter that of the state and dispute the charges.

    You are giving me a lesson in judicial procedure...not an explanation of what I asked concerning your comment that procecution [tough love]would leave a mark on their record.

    Records are kept on criminal convictions - why is that concept hard for you to grasp?

    Maybe they should ambush the faculty in the morning, rape a few women teachers and beat some of the men using baseball bats, you know, just as a prank, because kids will be kids

    There is no such thing as a high school prank.

    it is criminal behavior and should be treated as such.
