In the wake of tragedy, we often try to find some resulting good. I wish I could think of anything at all that could be considered "good" as a result of this.

Thanks for putting my feelings into words. Two weeks later I am still scratching my head about this entire incident. It will be quite awhile before I can forgive and forget.

WHY? and I most definitely agree that there is no legitimate reason or excuse for what was done. But it seems that everyday we the citizens hear & read about more & more senseless killings & maiming of innocent civilians around the globe, about Wall Street magicians making other peoples money dissapear, while they get super rich, and then get nearly a trillion $$$$ more of taxpayer guaranteed monies to fix the problem that they created and then they don't, and still no arrests for any of those responsible! But when a average citizen who has never harmed anyone gets caught for the smallest crime, his name is immediately published, then again at arrainment,full name& usually age, home address, and all charges even before being found guilty! then after sentencing for a crime where no one was harmed, again and this time, all who read are told he's in jail, so maybe his home is unprotected.

Does anyone else think it's a bit strange that all the pictures in the paper and on tv erie, shows all those workers cleaning up the corrosive mess at $700,000, None were even wearing a simple dust mask or any protective clothing??? Future lawsuits for hazardous exposure or??

Tired 1, this is a LOCAL paper that is why. And this is certainly NOT the "smallest crime", considering we are approaching 1 million in damages!! Not only does it affect our school, it affects the entire community and rest of the school district. I am not sure how 3 boys vandalizing has anything at all to do with killers, "Wall Street magicians" or politicians so I cannot at all relate to the point you are trying to make here.....
