So last night a school few kids in our little town (not my kid) went out and pulled a bunch political signs from peoples yards and took them and put them up in the high school principal's yard rang the doorbell at 2:30am and ran off.

1)Kids being kids?
2)Thugs stealing and being rude?
3)String them up?
4)Laugh it off?
5)Welcome to being a high school principal?
6)Other???????????

No one is above the law. They stole private property
Let them get away with it and they will push it further next time
Kids being kids don't refer to law breaking

Years ago before people got violent on political signs , the town I grew up in had a ongoing pre-election prank that was orchestrated beforehand. A couple of members of both parties would swap the signs on the opposing parties candidates running for selectman/mayor at that those candidates personal homes.

It was all done in fun , with good candor as a prank.

Dumb kids doing dumb things for laughs. They need to be taught a lesson, sure, but letís not screw up their future over a dumb stunt. Some misdemeanor charges, a night or two in jail and some long hard hours of community service. Nothing thatís gonna stick with them for decades. Man if I got caught doing half the stuff I did as a dumb teenager Iíd still be paying for it, and any one of you who says different is a liar. Too many people have their lives ruined over dumb teenager stunts. Itís scientifically proven that teenagers brains donít work right, so we shouldnít ruin a life over dumb teenager things.

I lean towards #1 and #5 but agree somewhat with Bob, there has to be some consequences, taking the signs is stealing. Charges may be too severe. If it's their first round, acknowledge and take responsibility and show remorse and have parents who are on board, pre charge diversion with community service and letters of apology fits the crime.

1, 4, & 5 A Halloween prank.
How many of you guys soaped windows?
No real harm.
Or stole an outhouse or dumped one over with someone in it or ...lol
If they burned them on the town square I would be different.

Kind of mild compared to some of the things I did as a kid. Disclaimer: no innocent parties got hurt or property got damaged

Admit their wrong doing.
Correct their wrong, return the signs to owners and apologize.
Then a little Community Service, maybe at the local church, fire house or VFW. Leaves usually need raking this time of year.
Probably get served cookies and some juice or milk and the neighbors will let them know they don't have to get in trouble to rake their leaves next year... lol

Kids being kids. I'm sure they won't get caught, and the local p.d. shouldn't waste much time trying.

#1, kids being kids. BUT that doesn't exempt from consequences. It's discipline in the little things that prevents the big things. Every screw-up is a teaching opportunity.

Kids being kids.

Most kids now are total [w]ussies. I'm impressed they actually went outside and showed some nerve.
