Juvenile crimes in Maryland are a chance to teach children

In our post last week, we discussed vandalism. That is one charge that is fairly common among juveniles. This is sometimes the result of boredom and sometimes the result of malicious intent. Many parents can probably remember being teenagers and egging a house or toilet papering a house. Those two events are classified as vandalism.

Vandalism isn't legal in any state, including Maryland

Getting angry with someone might lead some people to do things that aren't appropriate. One of the actions that might be tempting is to destroy or damage that person's property. Defacing or destroying someone's property without his or her permission is considered vandalism. Acts of vandalism are punishable in the criminal justice system, so it is vital that anyone who is thinking of harming someone's property take a few minutes to think about the consequences.

2 Hagerstown pre-teens questioned regarding bombs at church

Two pre-teens in Hagerstown, Maryland, were questioned after officials found 13 bombs made from soda bottles at a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A resident who lived near the building contacted the authorities about the bombs. When the fire department investigated the bombs, three were found to pose no danger. They continued to investigate the remaining bombs. The authorities said that young people often find out about soda bottle bombs from looking online online. They most likely do not fully understand the dangers and think the devices look fun. Neighbors commented that they didn't believe that the children wanted to commit a crime of vandalism to hurt anyone or damage the church property.
