    Put truant kids to do community service

    BH in a similar case in our community some years ago, where kids acted inappropriately at a jewish community center the judge handed them a verdict to do a certain number of hours of community service and made them meet with a holocaust survivor. These kids have too much free time on their hands and should be ‘punished’ with hours of community service.

    Let the parents pay for the damages their children caused. They brought them into this world, and if they haven’t taught them properly, and their kids could do these atrocities at such a young age, then let the parents come up to plate and pay! Best tool they can teach their children . Perhaps they’ll actually become responsible after seeing this!

    In my humble opinion, these kids were bored, not too smart, unsupervised and made a huge mistake setting the bus on fire. From the video they appear caught up in the excitement of the blaze before realizing what a dangerous thing they did and then ran off not knowing what to do to or how to put it out. A swift and meaningful punishment/consequence beyond their arrest and Court appearance (at the totally dysfunctional Bklyn Family Court) should include making immediate financial restitution and apologies. Depending on whether or not they have a history of engaging in dangerous/criminal activity, a… Read more »

    besides the need to teach the the laws of noach, truthfully , our boys would do a great job of teaching these as the teachers just cannot put any strength into it, quote from a public school teacher in flatbush, yes l had a lot of success giving them out, many kids took them and one teacher took a huge amount, she was thrilled,

    Representatives?

    How did the people named in the article and seen in the photos become our representatives? Was there an election that I missed?
