Juneau-Douglas High School pranksters should be punished

Senior pranks at the end of the school year are common in all schools.

 

At the end of the school year, kids want to celebrate the end of school by pulling pranks. Most pranks are harmless. However, what the kids did at the high school is beyond a prank. How will the parents react to discover that their children were involved in this?

After reading the article in the Empire, it is apparent that there will not be any charges. I feel that there should be some kind of atonement for what they did.

What message is being sent to the younger generation? That doing something like this is all right and they do not have to worry about consequences?
