I saw this article yesterday and I was actually quite perplexed. The article states that the "Senior Prank" was a tradition at that particular high
school? Ummmm, having just graduated high school myself a few years ago; I participated in the senior prank at my own previous high school. We went
in at night, rearranged some desks, saran wrapped a bunch of stuff together, stacked a pyramid of chairs in the gym, "TP'ed" the baseball fields,
threw some playboy magazines about the place and that's about it. Granted there was nobody urinating in the hallways or doing anything feces related;
but certainly nobody was arrested.
The student who personally gained entry and a few of his buddies who planned most of it got a couple of days of in school suspension.....but other
than that the school was fine even had classes (albeit a bit delayed) the next morning. Students and staff alike cleaned up the mess, only took a
Anyways here is the thing, this or something similar happens every single year at my old high school! Also, it happens every single year in all 10
high schools in my town.....Literally, every year haha no arrests ever came of it to my knowledge....Believe it or not, at least in my town many times
the students would gain entry to the building not by breaking in but by swiping a staff member's id pass at the door. Usually a "Cool" teacher
would GIVE their pass to a senior they trust to carry out the prank with class....The year my graduating class did it we had explicit permission from
the Assistant priniciple hence no silent alarm....
Anyways, I thought this was commonplace everywhere in America for like decades now??? I suppose it is only in certain areas. My mother in the 1970's
(same town different school) and her senior class planted corn in the football field so that it would begin sprouting right as the night football
season started lmao.....
I would say the NJ police and school overreacted. Arrest the urinating parties perhaps, it's not hard to get high schoolers to rat on each other,
other than that let the kids have some fun. Damn.
