Four hours each because they  were on their way to McDonald's during school hours. I'm sure the principal could've meted out worse.

Honestly, I'm most impressed by the fact that the principal doesn't even want to discuss the punishment, and is basically talking them up to the press at every turn, downplaying their being out of class, and giving them a slap on the wrist. Forget teenagers; most school administrators these days wouldn't have that much understanding.

Bit'O'Gristle: In today's day and age of kids who don't give a fark about anyone but themselves

Yeah, it isn't like this hasn't been said about every generation since the beginning of time.

Mugato: I never skipped class. Weird. Seemed like something too easy to get busted for.

I'll add my CSB
First day of school freshman year we got a packet full of emergency forms, waivers, etc.  I took the packet home, had my parents fill everything out and tossed it in the trash on the way to school the next day.

I went to the office said, "I lost my packet" and they gave me another one.  I filled everything out and handed it in the next day so that everything, include may parents' signatures, were in my hand writing.  Then all through high school I wrote my own notes.  I skipped a metric shiat ton of school.

Would farkers think differently if they skipped school one day and saved the lady the following day?  Or, do the two deeds have to occur on the same day in order for them to cancel out?  They deserve accolades and they deserve punishment.

A couple of friends of mine in high school had a pretty good day off once. A mutual friend decided he'd had enough of his abusive dad, and went to the local university library to study toxins. He settled on ricin, and found an out-of-state chemical supply warehouse who would sell him some, but it had to be picked up and signed for in person. He recruited another friend, bought him a plane ticket and sent him to pick it up.

My two close friends got wind of this, and intercepted the guy at the airport when he returned home with the vial (this was way before the TSA existed, of course). The convinced the guy to empty the vial and replace the contents with water. As he was doing so, they contacted a teacher, who called police. The vial was handed off, and the kid with the abusive dad emptied it into dad's coffee mug. He was later convicted of attempted murder.

Good kids. I think they'll do good.

Meh, they still skipped school, and the school obviously isn't making a huge deal about it (which is very surprising in today's ZERO TOLERANCE atmosphere).

4 hours of community service is nothing.

johnsoninca: How did the woman pronounce "chowder"?

When I was in 8th grade (+/-) a boy was late to school and bare footed. Teachers were getting on his case. There were rules about punctuality and uniforms. Finally he admitted that he had been rescuing somebody from a creek, so he was late, and he took off his shoes because his feet were soaking wet.
