I dunno they may have crossed the line with urination and grease.
They should have held their wee and used peanut butter instead.

That's more like a prank.


Agreed, Slayer, but I would have suggested Vaseline (never waste a good jar of peanut butter)

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.


I'm afraid those days are over, lighted, and I don't think they'll be back.

I was thinking along the same lines with the urinating parties. However, I'm not sure how easy it would be to get those kids to "rat" on each other.

Oh for crying out loud. Its a prank...and folks think they shouldnt graduate???

My senior year the offensive line carried the algebra teachers car into the band hall.


LOL! Our Chemistry teacher found his Volkswagen in the middle of the breezeway. He was such a good sport about it though. (Although the perpetrators had some heavy homework to do the next few days..lol)

I'm so sorry you had such a bad time! Most of my fondest memories (and worst nightmares) are from my high-school days.

However, we had no gangs, no "resource officers", no metal detectors, weapons in school or any of the things kids face in school today.

We weren't treated like criminals and administration didn't consider our schools to be penal institutions.

Last time I checked breaking and entering was against the law. So yes they should have been placed under arrest. Saying it was a prank is no excuse for breaking the law.


Yes, buster, you're right. But should this stop those kids from being able to graduate? Should it place a mark against them when they're only beginning their life?

No one was killed or injured, nothing was stolen so is this the "big deal" that its being made out to be?

My senior year our prank had to be "approved" by the faculty. They let someone set off the fire alarm. Wahoo!

Two of the best pranks I ever witnessed though were:

1. Letting a greased pig run loose in the halls

2. Put old fashioned alarm clocks in every senior's locker, set to go off all at the same time.

I always thought it would be cool to take apart a car and rebuild it on top of the school.

LOL! Now that's the sort of things I remember from high school! Freshman Initiation Day was a real hoot too

That's a bit much all we did was get two white rabbits and painted the number 1 on one of them, and a 3 on the other and set them loose in the school. Admins looked for that second rabbit for a good two weeks!a reply to: LadyJae

Urinating on the floor, and graffiti on the walls made it vandalism, and worthy of an arrest. Otherwise it was just a prank. Sorry but in this case, they went too far.

Yes, they did go too far. But, did they go far enough to warrant denying them the right to graduate?

Urine on the floors; grease on the walls...that goes beyond humor and becomes vandalism.
At there age level, if they don't understand that vandalism costs money, is illegal and has consequences, then they need to learn the hard way. And mom and dad get an "F" in parenting.

I totally agree with you. Not only did these teens vandalize the school and cost tax payers money for clean-up, they broke into the school! If someone did that at a private residence, it would be considered burglary whether or not they stole anything. A lot of these kids in this generation simply don't suffer consequences for their actions. So when committing a crime, in their mind, consequences don't come into play.

They don't get consequences for poor behavior at school or at home. The hand of parents and school officials are tied. Smack your kid to teach him a lesson, the law calls it parental abuse. A teacher grabs a kid by the arm to escort him down to the principal's office for disruptive behavior, and the kid and there parents will call it manhandling and yell bloody murder for putting their hands on their kid. Paddle a kid and it's considered cruel and unusual punishment.

The laws in this country have taken away the rights from parents and school officials to discipline bad and immoral behavior. The direct result is irresponsible, rude, inconsiderate, disrespectful and crime ridden teens.

For those under 18 it shouldn't be held against them but those over 18 should be charged. You are considered an adult at 18 no matter if they are still in school or not they should have known better.

Actually, buster, they all should have known better. If I read correctly, this was a "tradition" at their school. I highly doubt that graffiti and urination was a part of that tradition, but someone always seems to go a step too far.

I wish I had a better reply to you. Your comments are fair and well grounded. Unfortunately, I got involved in a thread I should have stayed far away from; now I'm sick at heart.

Thank you so much for your comments, buster, and for taking the time to read.

Blessings,
J

That is my thoughts.

The little hoodlums that graffiti'd and urinated should be raked over the coals. The rest of the kids should just have had to clean up.

Criminalizing childhood behavior is a shame.

Yes, my friend, it is. I've often wondered if today's children get into so much mischief because they aren't allowed to be, well, children.

Yea, that's brilliant. Forget greasing the doorknobs, let's kill someone who's allergic to nuts.

So much more ethical.

For some reason, this doesn't surprise me at all. The media and police made "overblown" statements. Imagine that.

Schools boss says reports of New Jersey class prank that resulted in 60 arrests overblown


TEANECK, N.J. — The head of a New Jersey school district where more than 60 students were arrested after being accused of pulling a senior class prank says their antics were overblown in the media.

Teaneck Superintendent Barbara Pinsak issued a statement Friday saying janitors cleaning Teaneck High School found no evidence to back up initial police reports students had urinated in the hallways.

Teaneck police haven't responded to Pinsak's comments.

Pinsak says there was no damage to school property and the cleanup consisted of removing petroleum jelly from doorknobs, sweeping floors of debris and removing graffiti. She says the district doesn't condone the students' behavior but exaggerated reports of mayhem "misrepresent" their school and community.

Sixty-three high school seniors were charged with burglary and criminal mischief.
