Officials at Coeur d’Alene’s Lake City High School would be wrong to let some 35 senior “commandos” get away with vandalizing the freshman homecoming float. Sure, it was a prank. But there’s also a lesson to be taught here.
The goofballs who broke into a Kootenai County Fairgrounds building Wednesday night and pulverized the float caused $3,000 worth of damage while tromping 250 hours of volunteer work.
We suggest that the Lake City senior class be made to repay the freshmen at least $1,000 for the vandalism. The seniors can dip into their treasury or hold fund-raisers to do so. Maybe then they’d think twice next time before committing a felony - that’s what this was.
