I object to the terms Signal Senior Staff Writer Jim Holt used to describe the criminal behavior of a 14-year-old thug in two stories last week involving Newhall vandalism and theft.

Using words like “prank,” “prankster,” “antics,” “stunts” and “shenanigans” seem to make light of the destructive and costly activities of this young criminal.
