Sit on your porch with a 45. Have your wife in the back with the pump.

They need to be made to clean up the park they destroyed and so do their parents. It's not cute, they're not smart and they won't grow out of it unless someone takes an interest in what they have been doing. None of my friends or myself growing up (as teenagers) did things that destructive. My dad said if I ever got into any legal trouble that I would have to sit in jail; he wouldn't bail me out. I was taught to respect property, be it mine or someone else's. Once, at my great grandma's house, we tore up her neighbors tall ornamental grass. We were very young at the time and just thought that the white fluffs at the top of it were pretty and picked a bunch of them, but my g grandma had the lady come over and we had to apologize to her personally. I stole gum from the store. My mom saw me with it (again, I was young, 5 or 6) took me back inside the store so I could return it to the store manager and apologize. Kids are never too young or too cute to learn from their mistakes or to be punished for them. It's kinds sad that so many parents check out of their kids lives like that.

You had good parents - sounds like these kids are being raised by wolves.

When we lived in Louisiana, the playground at LaFreniere Park was badly damaged by teenagers using the slides a motorbike ramps. I don't know if they ever caught those kids.

Teens charged with arson for igniting playground equipment | Newswatch | a Chron.com blog

Quote:
Three teens have been charged with arson after setting fire to a playground because one said they “had nothing better to do,” court records show.
Noah Bray, 17, Clayton Gunn, 17, and another teen suspect, who is a minor, are accused of setting fire to a slide in a park on April 8, according to court documents from the Harris County District Court.
Officers responded to a Crime Stoppers tip that Bray had been bragging about the fire. The students were interviewed at Klein Oak High School on April 30 and the teens confessed.
Bray told investigators that he and Gunn were lighting hand sanitizer at his house and then went to the park because they had nothing better to do. The boys then picked up the other teen and the three went to the park, she told investigators. Before leaving his house, Bray took a can of gasoline with him because they had discussed lighting something on fire, he told investiatgators.
Bray had trouble pouring the gas out of the can, so the other suspect poured the gas can down the slide and Bray ignited it. Gunn told police he did not see who started the fire.
Gunn and Bray are in custody.
Hopefully these are the same *******s. Care to add anymore insight deja blue?

Humans are the most disturbing creatures on this planet and they are getting worse as time goes on.

No I don't fish.

Unfortunately humans have not evolved much in the way of acting horrendous towards others...the man eating the face off of another living man comes to mind. You don't have to look very far to find horrific human behavior all over this planet.

Back in the late 70's when I was bored as a teenager and snuck out with my friends the last thing on our agenda for entertainment was destroying things. I think people are becoming numb to the constant daily bombardment of bad human behavior such that petty crimes don't seem so bad to them.

There are a lot of really good people on this planet. Too bad we mostly hear about the bad behaving and evil ones.
