Should parents be held account for their children’s stupidity?

I’d have been left with a better taste in my mouth if this story had ended with hope that neighbors would help rebuild the Lester Park Playground. Instead it ended with Board member Wasson’s frustrated desire to punish the parents of the stupid kids who destroyed the playground.

On a related issue I think it makes perfect sense to punish stupid school board members who set an even bigger fire in Duluth but not the school board member’s parents.
