    They need to arrest the parents too and hold them accountable as well for what their unsupervised children did.

    Those kids need to clean everything and pay every cent for what needs to be replaced. Let them spend the rest of the summer cleaning up graffiti for 8 hours a day and then spend the rest of the time in jail and let them know what their futures hold.
