What do you think should happen to students who pull serious pranks involving gun rumors at school?

Today, one city over from mine, 2 students (one from the east high school and one from the west--2 schools involved) sent a text to their parents saying they heard gun shots at school, and were hiding in a closet. The parents called their friends and rushed to the schools, starting a chain of panic. Both schools went into lockdown. Both students were interviewed by police and said, "it was just a joke". How should that be punished?

Expulsion & make them reimburse the City for costs of police and everything they had to do to investigate the prank. While they are expelled they can work it off with Community service make them wear a sign saying
" I was cruel & wasted taxpayer money, ask me for details "

Expulsion or suspension at the very least. That is some serious crap, which no parent should ever have to hear!

Suspension or Expulsion. They should have known better than to do something so crude after what happened in Connecticut. Teenagers can be so stupid sometimes.

Nothing should happen....we should keep letting kids get worse and worse.....we should do nothing to try and prevent further tragedies.....we should all just look the other way and let "kids be kids"........OR we shoudl REALLY start taking a hard line on these ignorant punks and start shipping off to boot camp with NO QUESTIONS asked, OR ship'em off to a third world country so they can realize how much of a cakewalk life they have in this country and they should start acting right.....friggin idiots.....I hope someone took'em in a back room and kicked'em in the groin.....

Boot Camp 6mos to 1 year. After that, they'd be model students and would be happy to be in school.

I wonder if there is still "boot camp" as per the HORROR stories I have heard in the past.....or if they too have had to go the way of the "namby-pamby-hippy-dippy-baby-boomer-softees" so as to not infringe on the "rights" of the kids...

I think it's time these little sh!ts start paying/repaying for their stupidity and crimes. If this government can't do enough to prevent senseless crimes, then they'd better damn well do enough to punish the guilty!!!

NO KIDDIN!!! I mean, when someone is caught, red handed, NO DOUBT that they are the culprit, then why are the punishments not reflective of the impact of the actions? And although there are SOME instances where the parents are obvious piles of trash that aren't doing their jobs right, in most cases it's just kids acting like idiots out of the clear blue, so the blame shouldn't be shared with the parents in my opinion.....I mean, the parents can ONLY do so much before the kid is gonna do what they're gonna do regardless....and SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE MADE THE EXAMPLE of what WILL happen in future cases of moronic activity, so they need to set that example sooner than later......

Forbid them from having cell phones in school and set them down for a talk with the police department.

And make sure that all the other kids in the school know that it was these two who lost them their cellphone privileges!

How about some old fashioned medieval stocks! Lock 'em up in stock and put 'em in the middle of the school yard so everybody can get a good look at the little punks who made their parents almost have a heart attack!
