    School prank gone wrong: 25 students suspended vandalized, parents and students upset

    "I think the pranks went too far this year... it should have been toned down a little bit. They took it way too far," said one Manual High School student.

    According to Male High School students, it started last weekend. With a pile of manure in the parking lot near the football field, and spray painted curse words on the field.

    Then early Thursday morning Male High School students went to Manual High School and spray painted a bus, tables in the courtyard, and the softball concession stand. Students also placed six toilets with waste in them in the courtyard.

    "It's cool having pranks, but they took it extremely far this year, with the pranks that they did," said another Manual High School student.

    We were told NOT to talk to Male High School students during their pep rally, but plenty have called the station, upset that their peers have been suspended, but no one's been disciplined for what happened to them.

    "We don't know for sure if it was actually Manual students who got this started. I think there are some assumptions that that's the case. And that may be how this whole thing got started in the first place. But we'll continue to investigate," said JCPS Spokesperson Lauren Roberts.

    Manual students say suspensions may have been harsh. However, these pranks only makes the game more exciting.

    "It's all in good fun, jokes back and forth and stuff, I don't think anyone should be expelled for it, cause no one was hurt. I understand why they were upset, but it's not that serious," said another Manual High School student.

    "I'm excited they pulled the pranks off because it's just going to make the game that more fun," said another Manual High School student.

    "I think it makes it more fun. There are senior pranks at the end of the year, so this is fun too. It's just another prank," said a Manual High School student.

    Lauren Roberts with JCPS says there was quite a bit of damage done and some vehicles have to be re-painted.

    In terms of how long these students will be suspended, Roberts says it could be anywhere from 6 to 20 days. But she says administrators are talking to their parents.

    Male parents have called our station and said, they've not heard from any administrators. They say they've been told a decision on the length of the suspension won't be made until Monday night.
    Somehow I don't think these kids get it, what they did was not a prank, it was vandalism and they should be held accountable for their actions to and include having to pay for the damages.
    It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

    Yeah I don't see how that would be classified as a prank. Someone needs to tell them that their prank sucked and now they are going to pay the stupid tax for it.

      This is vandalism. They think it was funny because the janitor had to clean it all up; not them.

        Therein lies the problem. Make them clean it up and mom and dad pay for the damages. Let's see how funny they think it is then.

          What happened to pranks requiring thought and skill to pull off? My dog knows how to dump a pile of crap in a parking lot!

          It wasn't that long ago when those kids made national news by sticking a light pole through a car. These guys definitely deserve to pony up for intentionally damaging property, and double the fines for lameness.

            Real "justice" would demand that the involved "students" clean up the mess they made. Parents would re-imburse the school district for the cost of any and all repairs. Of course, this will probably not happen, as life in "Hillary's Village" also denies personal responsibility. The very fragile "self esteem" of the perps would be horribly damaged by requiring them to clean up the very mess they made. The parents are no doubt disadvantaged under some real or imagined criteria, and of course are not responsible for the acts of their children. Maybe Oprah Winfrey could help. She could feature the misunderstood vandals on one of her shows, after all, she has her own school.

              yeah that's been all over our local news. that's a huge rivalry. i participated in pranks before, but none involving property destruction or anything like that. the punishment should fit the crime. expulsions, mandatory cleaning, etc...

                  In the ville, Male n Manual have a huge rivalry and a whole week where they have pep rally's and stuff for their game. I didn't know they took the rivalry that far though! I think Male's principal was forced to retire early for some kind of misconduct a week or two ago, Im sure the replacement was thrilled about this mess.

                    Ya pranks like these are stupid and require no type of creativity. like candidateyellow said my dog could take a dump in a parking lot. On that note I figured I would share a prank my uncle pulled off in high school.

                    My family owned a farm so he took three piglets, greased them up and painted the numbers 1,2, and 4 on them. Leaving the school officials looking for pig number 3 that did not exist. If you ask me that is a prank, nothing damaged, only thing affected was a day of school (which im sure all the seniors certainly enjoyed) He actually has pictures he took with the pigs before letting them loose I will see if I can get my hands on them and post them on here.

                      My first thought was "Did an actual journalist write this article?" There's hardly a complete sentence in the thing. I spent a few minutes trying to figure out if this was the actual article or just someone's paraphrase.

                        Oh yes it was. Not just once, but twice. While Oprah "personally selected" the student body, she evidently wasn't as careful with the staff. Subsequent to the last "investigation" she reportedly gave each student a cell phone. Each student was told to call Oprah personally, if the student had a problem. Don't know if that policy is still in effect.

                          Their behavior is criminal; therefore, it should be handled as such.

                          I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                            That was posted just as written by the news agency, that was why I posted the link.

                            I recall back in my HS days, we would take for sale signs, replace the company name with our schools name,or other sayings, then place them all over the other schools property, in turn the next year the other school would do the same back, that was as far as it went. That is a prank, nothing was damaged, nothing destroyed, and not one sign was stolen and we are talking several hundred here, they were donated by kids who's parents were Realtors.

                              There was a school here where the kids got to the field the night before graduation rehearsal and re-arranged the chairs to spell 2009.

                              My graduating year, the football team took apart the coaches VW Bug and put it back together in the gym.....they had to take it apart and get it our the next day.
