Teens should be held accountable

Stephanie Burt

In response to Whitney Childers’ column Tuesday: I do not think any excuse is valid for the 10 teen-agers who started the bonfire. I think a lot of the kids in this community are spoiled and do not appreciate where they live. This was not bad judgment on their part – they just do not care.

Well, I do care and I think the idea of sending them all to help clean up the fires in Glenwood and Hayman plus a hefty fine is just what they need. That way, it might keep them out of trouble for the summer and teach them a lesson.

Just because they are teen-agers doesn’t give them the right to do illegal stuff. This is totally inexcusable and I think the parents should also be held accountable.
