    if they are found guilty, file a claim against the parental units to pay for the damages.

    I'm pretty sure I heard or read somewhere that parents can be sued up to $25K for their minor child's poor behavior?

    Great, make those kids pay back every dime to clean up their mess. Maybe the parents will start acting like parents when it's costing them money out of their pocket for what their kids are doing. I did some dumb things as a kid, but never to someone else or their property.
