I am glad they are doing something! I wish they would start something like that here. I do get what you are saying about the fine, given than it's 2 months salary and as you said, probably paid by the parents. It would be good if they could add some type of community service/work program where the teen had to work off most if not all of the fine themselves. I'm not opposed to a fine, but that's just mom and dad bailing them out, and won't teach the actual culprit that much of a lesson.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
