    Having raised 2 sons of my own, I cannot imagine what the parents of these 2 teens are dealing with now! Aside from the criminal charges, which will not go on their permanent record due to their age, the restitution, embarassment these teens caused their parents is inexcusable. Granted, these 2 are the exception. To all the teens reading this, don't ruin your life or the life of your family by giving in to peer pressure, a dare, an impulse, etc. Your parents want you to succeed; can't do that very well if you get into trouble. To the parents; something tells me this is not your fault but your teens need some assistance, counseling, discipline in order to move beyond this event. Best wishes to all; glad no one was hurt or injured.
