Items from recent crime news:
In Durham some kids in high school for a senior prank decapitate a local landmark and put the head on the giraffe (itself stolen from a putt-putt course a few years back) on their school's campus. Culprits are nabbed by the police. Names are not released. Debate ensues as to whether to even charge them criminally. Most likely they are 18 since they're seniors in high school.
In Raleigh a 22-year-old student takes some DOT barricades and fashions a scary monster out of them, creating public art and causing destruction to the barrels at the same time. Student is arrested by the Raleigh police, booked, named released to the public and charged with "misdemeanor charges of damage to property and larceny."
Um ... anything wrong with this picture? Or is it just me?
