        It the parents are lucky, they have home insurance and the company won’t turn down the claims.

    Unlocked door is an invitation. Where were those teens parents at the time of the Trashings? The Parents and Teens should be held responsible for all repairs and then should, if a Judge would do so, be told to Do Community Volunteer for no less than one year , parents and teens both. ‘Bored”, those kids need a serious Attitude Adjustment and their parent or parents should create curfews.

    Regardless if a door was left unlocked or not, these teens had not been invited inside. I shudder to think what my parents would have done to me if I had let myself into another person’s home & trashed it. The police would have been the least of my worries! This scenario is becoming all too common. Perhaps physical labor would help them burn off their excess energy. The sad part is that these kids have no way to pay for the damage & I’m thinking their parents won’t have that much extra cash to pay for the damage, so now what? This unfortunate home owner is going to have to file an insurance claim & after a hefty deductible try to pay for it himself. Ultimately we all pay for little jerks like this is the form of higher insurance rates, taxes to pay for increased police patrols, etc. When is Maine going to stop slapping stupid people on the hand and put an end to this sort of thing?

    Bored, well now, have them go in and start cleaning the mess they created. They can learn a trade by helping repair the damages as well as work of restitution for the damages

    Hope his Allstate policy is all caught up. Why’d he take off for a month and leave a door unlocked anyhow? Yeah, all the usual hoohaw will apply: The Parents! The Lids! The Cops! The Breakdown Of Morals In American Society! Might even squeeze the latest Mayan Calendar story in there too. Couldn’t really pin-down why with any fact and accuracy, but stuff like this has happened now and then since I was that age. Some sort of hormone-fired mob mentality.
