And this kid should have to reimburse the state for the resources used in the search of the school. I'm sure his parents will love having to foot that bill!! Expel him from school as well. It's not fair to the other students to have their learning disrupted by this kid.

I agree! This is the 2nd one since school began a month ago! What is wrong with these kids? Do they not understand the consequences of their actions or do they just not care?

Probably both.The school and the town emergency services need to send a combined message that it's not funny, it's not "clever" and it *will not* be tolerated. I'm convinced they're handling it thus, just as they handled both incidents with the appropriate balance of caution and concern.
