People have been playing pranks on each other since the beginning of time but there has to be some accountability for a prank if the joke turns out to have a bad ending.
I always tell my kids that whatever you do you need to be prepared to pay for the consequences if things suddenly blow up in your face.
Even growing up, I was never a fan of vandalism based pranks because in my mind, it was vandalism and not a prank at all. You toss toilet paper in someone’s tree that’s vandalism and nothing more.
There’s a big difference between cutting a roll of paper towels in half so and doing something that could cause an accident.
Via Western Journal:
A 14-year-old boy faces a murder charge after the vehicle he was driving killed a 45-year-old woman in a New Year’s Day crash in Houston.
The incident began Tuesday afternoon when the 14-year-old, whose name has not been released, was driving a GMC Acadia SUV along Aldine Mail Route Road. The driver and other juveniles in the vehicle were throwing eggs at passing cars, NBC reported.
The game changed when a driver in one of the cars struck by an egg pursued the vehicle, chasing the juveniles at high speeds.
The driver of what was described as a tan 1970s-era Lincoln Continental with a white leather top showed the juvenile a semi-automatic handgun, the juveniles claimed to police.
In their effort to evade the Lincoln, the vehicle of juveniles went through a red light and hit a Ford pickup truck, killing Silvia Zavala, 45, said Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez.
The 14-year-old driver suffered a broken ankle. He is currently in a juvenile detention center.
The driver of the Lincoln did not stop at the scene.
Police later said they have located him and he is cooperating with their investigation.
