    Where are the parents when these “kids” are making this stuff. Sometimes you have to make the parent just as responsible, especially when something like this could have caused bodily harm.

    No names. Really why do they always seem to cover up shit in that town… Yep just another slap on the wrist. Cops get away with shooting innocent people so I guess it shouldn’t surprise us that its okay to blow up mail boxes and hurt people at the same time… Wtf
