An 11 year-old boy caused quite a stir recently when he allegedly urinated all over a cart full of computers at a Pennsylvania elementary school. The grand total for his bladder-driven episode: $36,000. According to faculty, the MacBooks in question were completely destroyed, drenched to the point of inoperation by the audacity of a grade school delinquent. Why the boy decided it was time to relieve himself then and there is unclear at the moment.

This smelly scenario only begs the question: Where in the world were teachers, principals, and/or custodians during the whole debacle? Was there no one around to make sure this kid didn’t spray the schools’ computerized equipment with the contents of his bladder? More importantly, did this kid have a history of recklessly destroying other people’s property? These are all pretty legitimate questions, ones I’d think the school would be more than willing to answer before slapping the kid with criminal charges. I’m all for facing the consequences for one’s actions, but shouldn’t the school and its employees bear some sort of responsibility for this situation?

As a result of his potty-related adventures, the kid will be charged with institutional vandalism and criminal mischief. As inherently goofy as this whole thing sounds, I’d be curious to hear the parents’ reaction to their child’s ridiculous behavior. Obviously the boy has issues, and I’d be surprised if this is his first shot at revolting the entire planet with his antisocial abilities.

Police have turned the boy over to the Cumberland County Juvenile Probation Department.

OK, really? WTF, Pennsylvania? Are you trying to give Florida a run for its money? http://t.co/rLfNh6bE(image) 1 hour ago via TweetDeck ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Parents, please keep your kids from peeing on Computers. It’s just not right. Especially Macs. http://t.co/5tH2HRAq(image) 36 minutes ago via Safari on iOS ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

    As a teacher who has seen the catastrophic effect of computers in schools, I have to applaud the concept. But peeing on anyone else’s property is a bad idea. The kid should be punished fully.
    However, I wouldn’t assume from this that we have a future Unibomber on our hands. The kid’s 11, for God’s sake. Kids that age do all sorts of weird, creepy things, yet turn out as normal adults. Punish the kid, but don’t put him in a Supermax just yet.
    Maybe he was just making a statement. I know a few teachers (and students) who would love to do the same. But we have frontal lobes, and settle for writing in comment banks.

    Why would the school be using Macs anyway. The students should be working on Windows PCs because Windows is what they will use when they enter the work force. When I was in college in the 1990s, it was drummed into us that Windows is a must for computing existence, and that Bill Gates is GOD when it comes to computing.

    The school is doing the students a dis-service by using Macs instead of PCs, because Windows is what they will use in the work force.
