I think in cases like this, you know the police can pick them up if they see it, and then take them home. Tell the parents. "Hey, we caught your little girl writing her name in the concrete. That's destruction of public property, vandalism, blah blah blah. Most parents are not that thrilled when their kids get brought home in a police cruiser. I think that perhaps they are going overboard in prosecution.
    Kids do indeed do stupid things all the time. Sometimes the stupid things they do are even illegal. Kids have to follow the law, just like the rest of us. Luckily this time, they were able to feel the proper consequences for their actions. And most of the kids weren't prosecuted. Most of the kids had to right an essay. One of the kids has a stupid dad who decided to raise a fuss.

    Taking them to the precinct sounds like a much better option than a police officer driving around looking for four different houses and leaving children unattanded in his car while he talks to parents. It's the parent's problem, it should be their inconvenience to pick them up.

    Dad: It's OK, she's not hurting anybody.

    Observer: Then why are you spanking her, dad?
    And there is no reason to waste tax dollars on court appearances. Maybe you think it should go to the supreme court; why let's have it on TV. Get a ****ing grip, she's only 12. Maybe we should retry you for all the **** you did at 12, and didn't get nailed by today's standards. How about that?

    The only reason we're "wasting money" is cause her dad's a jackass.

    How is holding children accountable for their actions stupid?

    That is one of the best ways to raise kids... that their choices have consequences.

    The dad is wasting everybody's time and money... he should get charged and sent the bill for all of the lawyers and courts hours and billings as a result, if he loses.

    I got in trouble once, last time I did it too. Neighbors mom saw us writing our name on the new cement poured in a corner. I got the "Wooden spoon" punishment. Never did it again.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
