City school kids evicted from 9/11 memorial site after dropping trash in fountains during field trip
NY Daily News ^ | 6/24/12 | Ben Chapman, Tina Moore AND Matthew Lysiak

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.

The little piglets do it on city buses & trains every day.
Their trash talk is worse than the litter they leave behind. No manners, no respect. Bring back the fire & brimstone!

And that’s exactly what these kids are——GARBAGE.

The kids were just expressing their creative talents as their contributions to the memorial. I was expecting graffiti from the NYC yutes instead.

Wait a second! Littering is part of their culture. Who are we to criticize cultures that are different than our own? Celebrate diversity! /sarc

“They kicked us out because of littering in the water. Kids were throwing baseballs in the pond thing,”

Baseballs are litter? "The pond thing"?

It appears that the avant-garde memorial failed to make an impression on the urban youth. Maybe our memorials need to be a little more specific, such as an obelisk inscribed, "Moslem terrorists killed thousands of Americans here. What are you going to do about it?"

And given our society's penchant for throwing coins and other items into every water feature, perhaps we need to reevaluate the emphasis on "reflecting pools" in public space. If every "pond thing" is a wishing well, it seems the viewer is unclear on the concept.

What kind of school admin thought it was a good idea to unleash a pack of feral miscreants onto a hallowed memorial site?

One who, like the current administration, is compelled by instinct to desecrate, defile, and profane America’s most holy places, laws, and traditions.

The pundits on the left won't touch this horribly disrespectful act, but were all over the reporter who showed ‘disrespect’ by asking Obama a question.

Total per pupil expenditures $17,108

There is money well spent.

$17,000+ per student, and they act like this.

I think my state spends less than half that on each kid. I don’t think the other kids would let a classmate do that. (And besides, who but a rich kid tosses away a good baseball like it’s trash?)

Just goes to show, all the money in the world spent on the schools can’t make up for chaos at home.

..... And this surprises anyone? With a role model like the first lady saying "all this for a damned flag" while at the dedication ceremony there, why should we expect them to show respect?

Students on a field trip recently damaged property at Bennett Place in NC. :( The damage was intentional.

Even kids from good homes enter into a psychotic, socialist experiment when they get to school.

The major lesson of all schools is debauched progressivism and socialist privilege.

We do our best to spoil the good ones by applying a thick collective marinade.

Why is everyone on this thread complaining? The children’s behavior is part of their culture, which we should respect. Diversity and inclusiveness requires that we respect all cultures.

I’ve been on many school trips and the teachers, parents/chaperones, would never allow the students to make a mess or litter. Where was the leadership on this trip?

There would be punishment for students who caused problems when we returned to school.

Reminds me of the Indian family my Bro in law saw at the reflecting pool in Washington DC washing their feet in the water!I would say he had a cow but then they might start worshiping it. At least they had the excuse of being from another culture ,these animals were born and raised here!

It’s to be expected from the minority, they are made to believe they are better than everyone else, precious snowflakes, so this type of behavior goes unchecked, thanks media, you’ve made the minority feel as though they are above the law, they are, just ask those illegals Obama gave amnesty too, the law only applies to the majority, the minority are above it, if you call them on it, you’re a racist, nice catch-22 you’ve made for us and society as a whole lamestream media, thanks!

Only in New York could a reporter write “.33-caliber rounds” and the editor not catch it.

We were scared to death to be disrespectful of our teacher or any adult when I was growing up in the 60s and 70s. Our teachers didn’t put up with anything and had the use of a paddle. It was really scary to be sent to the principals office as everyone in school knew you did something really bad. Parents actually punished kids for misbehaving instead of suing.

Then they probably got on the school bus heading back to the school and told the bus monitor she was fat and how they wanted to defecate in her mouth. You know, I’m really not liking middle schoolers from New York State much these days.

This is not really a surprise. The students in this and many NYC schools are being taught to hate America and want nothing to do with America except every other Friday. The comment on the ethnic breakdown of the school says almost all of what needs to be said, except one more fact: the number of students with Muslim names who have been taught to disrespect the “holy” sites of their enemies. I’d bet there are more than a few. That is part of the Muslim mind set. Remember these scumbags are trying to build a mosque a block from ground zero? Disrespecting our “holy” site and celebrating their victory is what that is all about.
