A group of seven youngsters were pressed charges after they released no less than 72.000 ladybugs in a public high school. Seemingly, on May 20, five people forced a door at Chopticon Highschool in Morganza, Maryland and set free an entire swarm of insects.
The hilarious joke was precisely programmed, as the entire batch of ladybugs was previously ordered online and kept away until the fabulous day when armies of red coated insects ran free in the open air, causing scandal and chaos amongst high school representatives.
Four under-aged were charged with burglary, property destruction and disruption of school activities. Because the prank was not such a great disaster, the kids were soon released by their parents. Consequently, deputies declared that three adults that were part of the group of 7 will be charged by criminal summons.
The ladybugs were released inside the school a few days ago at around 3.30 am, and now the pranksters are paying a pretty high price for their funny behavior. Four minors were charged with four degree burglary, property destruction and disruption activities.
It is sometimes boisterous how ordinary teenage behavior turns into a piece of news. Things are not how they used to be, as if in the past we wouldn’t have had the tools in our hands to do such a trick but we surely had our dose of rebellion back in the days.
Pressing criminal charges against children who did a harmless joke in high school seems pretty much of an exaggeration. But who are we, little people to judge what appears to be a criminal behavior in all right.
