A group of students from a Brooklyn junior high school were thrown out of the 9/11 memorial for dumping trash in one of the memorial fountains.
These 13 and 14 year old kids may not have been alive during the attacks but the fact that they thought this was appropriate behavior is most certainly not becoming of their age.
Many at the memorial were offended and so were some of the kids.
“It’s terrible,” said Walter Douglas, 13 “You’re supposed to be there to remember the people.”
That’s right Walter! Should they have been kicked out? Sound off in the comments below.
From the NY Daily News:
A group of Brooklyn students on a school trip to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum were booted from the hallowed site after they callously hurled trash into its fountains.
The vile vandals from Junior High School 292 in East New York treated the solemn memorial — its reflecting pools honoring the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks — like a garbage dump.
“They kicked us out because of littering in the water. Kids were throwing baseballs in the pond thing,” said eighth-grader Anthony Price, 14, of East New York, who insisted he wasn’t one of the troublemakers.
