If caught the criminals should have to pay for all the repairs that had to be done. Not paying with money but with good old hard labor and having their drivers license suspended for at least a year. If they do not all have drivers license they should not be allowed to get a license until at least a couple years beyond their so called legal date. This type of young adults are nothing but heathens who has no regards for anyone. Too many children are left to their own devices way too early in life. But children should know right from wrong by their early teen years and I guess we can't always blame the parents although I feel a lot of this type of behavior is due to very bad or lack of parenting in their younger years.

We, as a society, must learn to deal with juvenile misbehavior in more creative and imaginative ways. Many say punishment is the answer. That is most certainly true, but only to a certain extent. There must also be rehabilitation. That can only happen when victims and perpetrators come together in a climate of mutuality and support -- and that can only occur after the perpetrators have been duly apprehended and the courts have had their say. Sadly, there is no longer any respect or fear of God amongst our youth -- many of whom remain in a footloose and fancy-free state of mind until their late 30s. What happened to the reform school era? Perhaps the parents (who are obviously responsible for their offspring until they're adults) should be also called on the carpet. No fancy lawyers here! Just a stern judge and the four (how did they know there were only 4?) youths. Be warned: if the long arm of the law doesn't get you, the long arm of the Lord will, in time.

This has happened to my elderly parents before. And they had poor insurance, so they ended up paying to fix what HAS to be fixed, with the money they would have used for medicine. I hope when these jack ***es are found, not only fix what they destroyed, but have to do community service for each victim for 6-12 months. It is hard enough to keep up normally, but to have your property destroyed by punks or over-privileged kids, they need to find out what it is to live week to week, or month to month!

These kids need a job, school just let out and they are bored already with too much time on their hands.

My car and home are ready for these criminals if they so choose to come and try their juvenile tricks. If it happens, The Times will be forced to do a story on the incident, as the consequences of their actions will be monumental.
