Everyone who is saying bad things about herricks dont know what theyre talking about. Who are you to judge when you dont even go to the school? I happen to go to herricks high school and its a great school. I also know the kids who did this and im honestly suprised at them. You guys dont know the story or reason to why they did it so stop assuming shit and get over yourselves.

One thing I've noticed is that the Herricks students who write here have much better writing skills than the people that write on some of these other threads. It looks like Herricks is a good school district after all.

Chances are that if you went there, this post would be written in proper English.

Wow. It's nice to see that people that don't even go to Herricks are judging not just the boys, but the whole school. Seriously.. You guys don't know anything about us. And you're acting like we're some stupid bunch that go around on a killing spree? It was just two kids, I know who they are, and they definately do not represent how the majority of the school act.

It's refreshing to have a thread with high school kids writing responses that I can understand.

To jtk etc., why leave us hanging. Just what was the reason that your two schoolmates committed arson at the school? Are they spoiled brats who don't give a shit? Were they dissed by a teacher or the principal? I know Herricks High School from my former job (elsewhere) and just can't understand what well-off kids from good families and with nice cars would do such a dumb (and dangerous) thing. Can you give us an answer, dude, we'd love to hear it.

Basically it comes down to this - kids will do stupid things. Always have, always will. You can presume to know what the kids are like, what the school is like and what the area is like if you don't know.

PuffinLady, you hit it on the head. Teens are teens, and everything in between, no matter if they are honor students or underadchievers. Any of them can do crazy things for crazy reasons or no reason at all. Herricks is a fine school and we cannot disparage it for one isolated incident.

good and bad are all in the eye of the beholder. the herricks area was too right wing, and socially conservative. not the kind of place i would want my kids to grow up in. it's probably on its way down hill like the rest of america. on the issue of achievers, i think that alot of the kids, regardless of their achievement levels have alot to fall back on, and perhaps that is why alot of kids simply dont give a fack. even the 15 yr old wanna be gangsters will probably get hooked up with a decent job 10yrs down the line. not earned of course. thats the way the system works though, innit?

Your post is ludicrous. Herricks' residents are far from "conservative" or "right wing", and a majority have voted for Democrats for years including Bill Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and David Paterson. Speaking of being "on its way down hill", things aren't looking very good in the old UK now, thanks to "diversity", which has led to a foreign invasion. Are all of your women wearing burkas yet?

That's typical of the younger generation today, who have no need for spelling and grammar when they text all day long.

You guys do realize that this was an accident right? It was not even near the school building. If you don't know, don't go blabbering.
