I second loquaciousone's suggestion but add that the parents' names be publicized and that their home & car(s) be vandalized.

Agree that parents' names be publicized, but do not agree with the vandalism. Two wrongs don't make a right. Make them pay restitution, put them on some form of probation where they will be held liable if their son does it again, but don't make a bad situation worse with vigilante tactics.

The parents should be made to pay for ALL damages. I guess that kid is NOT getting anything for Christmas for a long time.

now make his parents pay a fine and make the parents and the boy clean and paint the mess he made. until we in hawaii take this seriously this defacement will continue. the courtss procecute and make them clean up the mess they made. not to mention but also pay for the clean up. why should we tax payers have to pay for stupidity. like i said before this all comes down to morals. this kid has not been taught morals and maybe his parents aswell.

Amen. He got caught red-handed. Make an example of him and the parents. Restitution and hard labor - they should be forced to scrub off all the graffiti within a football length of his deed. Probably did those, too.

Of course, in Singapore he would also have been caned in public. In some countries, they might have whacked his hand(s) off, too. Lucky, he lives in America. He'll get a lollipop and told to go home and think about it.
