I'm pretty sure they didn't think they'd walk away without something, but being arrested and fined? Sure a school is a public place, but it is also a public place filled with children, in particular in high school 14-18 year olds, some even 13. To be arresting a student for disorderly conduct, without any intent to actually cause any harm to anyone (Come on, it's food, and was planned as far as reported, so most probably knew what was going on anyway) and it was simply an end of the year prank! You can only do that type of stuff when in school or high school... but wait, I guess it's all academics and no fun now. Wait, you can have fun but if it's too out of control you pay for it with detention (or even the strap, people'd learn a lesson!).

The way our money-hungry laws project their influence to today's new terrorism and security-fearing society, only traps us more into an institutionalized America.

What ever happened to a detention or some sort of proper punishment, such as cleaning up the mess you made? I guess the lesson learned here is, you start a mess like this, you get the cuffs, and someone else cleans up after your mess, when if they made a bunch of students take retribution for their prank, things would be all fine and dandy.

And don't let me get started about parent's today wanting something done, when stuff like this happens.[]

You hit the nail right on the head. People who think that the arrest is an overreaction have it backwards; it's actually the easier punishment. I would much rather get arrested and pay the fine than have to actually clean it. The fine would be worth the memory of that day and becoming a legend at the same time. Also, the disorderly as a minor gets wiped off your record when you turn 18, and I'm assuming that everyone involved was a minor because the seniors should have graduated by now.
Actually the ONLY senior involved in the planning and start of this food fight was the class valedictorian, he wasn't allowed to attend graduation practice but was allowed to walk at the ceremony.

Our idea of a senior prank was to tape up paper over the junior class lockers since the senior girls don't like that class. Of course, a few junior girls complained so we had to take it down. We were also going to tape (not duct tape) our Sociology teacher's car. But, another junior girl took the tape away which sucked because our teacher wouldn't have cared if we'd done it since he loved our class so much. Our big finale was that we took all of the senior cars and blocked off the student parking lot so they couldn't leave. It actually lasted for about 20 minutes before we were told to move. Not great ideas, but we weren't going to do anything stupid since the police were right outside the school the whole time.

The seniors where I teach did a nice job this year. They parked where the staff parked and blocked off the lowering parking lot where the kids park. In order to get down there you had to use a different route that had a few seniors standing by to take a "toll". One teacher was so pissed she parked her car behind a couple cars so they could not get out. Well, seniors being as smart as they are called the local Barney Fife (cop for you youngens that never heard of Andy Griffith). He came in and ticketed her for illegeal parking. The Juniors came in to find that their lockers had all been zip-stripped. Now I know I called the seniors smart a sentence ago, but some of them put the strips backwards so all you had to do was push the strip through! Anyways...that was not the end of it. During 1st hour the students came in and decided to be smart and tie all the doors of the classrooms together! It was so funny having a seeing a line of twine going from door to door.

The thing with pranks is that they are fine and can be hilarious if they are not demeaning or harmful. What I do not get is with the Arrowhead one, the kids cleaned it up? Yet they were still punished? Maybe I read it wrong.

In order to become a legend you need to do something really out there like block your school's main hallway with the principal's car.
