    First of all, I agree that these kids should be punished. There is speculation that these kind will not be allowed to play spring sports due to their actions. I also support this. I dont see how the school system can do this when they allowed a kid to continue to play basketball after being accused of murder. Discipline should be consistent and fair to all. Gonna be interesting to see how this situation is handled.

    Unreal how this is being handled.... Not so long ago we had a (supposed) murderer win a state championship in this town but nothing was done and everything was brushed under the rug! Now these 4 guys who obviously did something wrong are getting way worse treatment? Justice at it's finest!! Oh and I hear a week before this their were two kids (from central) who beat a man to death!! Why are we not hearing about that too? Is murder not as bad as vandalism? Smh

What was done is absolutely terrible! & down right sorry!! but can at least be fixed.. Thank God it was nothing very serious where a life was taken. Those guys can at least have a chance to do what's right. Hopefully they will and something positive will come from it

    I am only three years older than these kids. I agree that kids make mistakes but what is wrong with our generation is that people let us use the mistake "we're young and made a mistake." These kids knew what they were doing and if they only wanted to show off they wouldn't have gone to the extreme like they did. Some of this took real thought. I think they should be help responsible

    Its not a racial act y do people assume when its a group of one race its racist get a grip! It was a group of teens actting out for whatever reason they need to find other ways of showing there school spirit trashing other school property is wrong! They should be responsible for replacing the damaged property. I hope they are held responsible for what they did they knew it was wrong.

    everyone makes mistakes and I think it is absolutely ridiculous the way some people are reacting to this. They are just four young boys who made a mistake and have their whole lives ahead of them! It would be a shame for them to have their entire futures ruined over this.

        Bigger fish to fry in this town. Boys and families should deal with this matter and let them pay and fix damages. Felonies are extreme for a case like this!

    Were these 4 not responsible enough to turn themselves in once the video was publicized, knowing they were caught at that point. Shame on the friends who may have recognized them and not turned them in. What is wrong with this generation of youth??

    I know one of the boy an he IS a Christian and we know that Christian can sinners. We have to pray for these boys and their families.

    From the names it sounds like a bunch of unhappy white boys who need to not only make restitution but serve some time for such a ridiculous act. Parents?
