Teaneck HS “Prank” Leads to More Than 60 Arrests [POLL/VIDEO]

Stupid is as stupid does. How we all remember that line from “Forrest Gump!”

And this time of the year, the end of the school year, usually begets more stupid than any other time of the year.

In a report from northjersey.com, a group of 62 students, 38 of them juveniles, were arrested on a variety of charges, including vandalism, burglary, and criminal mischief, after having broken into Teaneck High School, peeing in the hall, turning over desks, and smearing Vaseline on the door knobs.

Fairly run of the mill, wouldn’t you say? Not much creativity there.

Prosecutors will decide whether to charge them, or refer them to municipal court to reduce the charges.
Some parents were outraged over the presence of the hordes of media, saying their kids have “rights” and should be able to say whether or not they wanted to be recorded.

True, quite a bit of media for a “prank.”

But is it a prank, or something much larger?

 

“They are all good kids,” one mother said as she left the courtroom. “My kid’s going to an Ivy League school,” a father added.

Not all parents were thrilled with the media coverage at the courtroom session:

“I am just angry right now,” said another woman, who sat in the spectator session of the courtroom. “These students have rights. They should be able to say whether they want to be recorded or not.”

 

Ya gotta love these lines:

“They are all good kids,” one mother said as she left the courtroom. “My kid’s going to an Ivy League school,” a father added.

If that’s the case, he’s wasting his money.

And therein lies the problem. Parents who think their kids have “rights” after having allegedly caused extensive damage to the school, because they’re really “good kids!”

Maybe they are, and maybe they shouldn’t have arrest records either; but look at the attitude of some of the parents. Where do you think they (the students) get if from?

Did they really think they were going to be given a choice as to whether or not they would be granted privacy from the hordes of media?

Don’t the other kids have rights too – like the right to be able to go to school that hasn’t been vandalized?

I guess the apples fall not far from the tree.

Bigger question is: do you feel the students should be charged with crimes, and overall, do you view what they’ve done as mere pranks?

They’re going to have to learn that they “f—ed up!”
