    What ever the final is on this STUPID act in/on school premisses the PARENTS need to be PUNISHED along with the children/ young people for their actions .
    School was just renovated for the childrens safety and comfort ; let them be interviewed on Cromwell Smith programme and tell the country their reasons for doing what they did
    The parents must DO COMMUNITY service at the school ;because if the kids occupied the school over nite the parents did not know where their kids were
    Se need to be responsible and put values back in our lives .SHAMEFULL

    Just go and investergate a few of the parents and you will understand why the children is running wild. If you don't feed your kids etc.. They are going to run the streets. Some parents would spend the money they have on themselves and not feed or make sure their kids is ok. Neglectful parents.

    I work at a Juvenile Center in the Bronx and there are kids at the tender age of 10 serving time for stupid acts like the 7 that destroy the school. It is time that the BVI look into one of these centers. I also think the parents should be charged.
