We just hand them a can of graffiti remover and make them clean up their mess.
If they do it again they get have to clean it up and get ISS. (in school suspention)
Where was it posted the first time?
- Damn that HerrGlock! Newspostwhore.
I don't really understand the outrage. She commited an act of willful destruction of public property. Why shouldn't she be treated like any other tagger? Twelve is old enough to know that writing on things which don't belong to you is against the law.
Arrest her and the rest or the damn vandals who like to trash public properties.
They admitted they made a mistake. Who cares....
It is excessive because this is not the normal punishment for the act. That is why the school has detention so it can discipline the students. Kids get into fist fights and aren't arrested all the time so drawing on a desk may be wrong but the punishment doesn't fit the crime. What a waste of an officers time going through all of that while someones house was being broke into or a far more serious crime was being committed.
Last time I checked you could be arrested for just about any misdemeanor, which she commited. How again is this not the "normal punishment?"
When people deface public property they are often ticketed or arrested, particularly if it's a cop that catches them doing it. Am I to understand that she shouldn't have been arrested because she was caught by an administrator instead of a police officer?
The arrest was extreme. Just let her buy a new desk before being allowed back in school.
It is not normal because she is 12 years old! "People" that are arrested for tagging an overpass with spraypaint is in a different league and deals with adults. If where you come from they arrest children for a marker on a desk instead of handling it in the school then I sure am glad you live there and not me.
Like you know, like, that is like so, like, unbelievable and stuff, like I can't believe they just like did that. Like, wow.
Seriously, what a bunch of BS.
Damn kids these days. When I was in school, all we did with markers were huff them to get high.
Right, because it's impossible to be a 12 year old delinquent. So, taggers who are 12 are just fine and dandy but taggers who are adult deserve to be arrested? Interesting logic you got going on there.
Saying it's just "marker on a desk" doesn't elliminate the fact that destruction of public property is a crime in every jurisdiction I'm aware of.
You a teacher? I hope you teach band as your name implies and not English or Lit.
I think next would be a
Graffiti IS vandalism.
News here also reported it was an erasable marker.
Also in the news, HKUSP proposes tazing for children using sidewalk chalk.
In February 2009 a Wisconsin student was arrested for texting in class , and in November 2008 a Florida student was arrested for passing gas in class .
You can get arrested for passing gas???
Good thing they never caught me in school or I'd be serving life!
