    Default Eleven-Year-Old Boy Urinates On $36k Worth of MacBook Computers


    "Well, there goes $36,000 worth of good computers," as Upper Allen Elementary School staff must have been thinking to themselves after an eleven-year-old boy dropped his pants and urinated all over a computer cart full of 36 MacBook computers on Wednesday. All 36 MacBook computers were damaged in the incident.

    I’m not sure what it would have taken to get a child to think it was a good idea to treat a cart of computers like a urinal, however peer pressure or feeling the need for revenge may have played a huge part of it. We know that children’s minds are not yet fully developed to completely understand the gravity of destroying $36,000 worth of computers, but it simply makes sense even to a somewhat normal eleven-year-old child that urinating should be saved for the bathroom.

    According to the police that populated this event, the MacBook computers were damaged beyond repair. Apple does not cover water damage in their AppleCare warranties, let alone something of this caliber. The child was later charged with criminal mischief and is being turned over to the Cumberland County Juvenile Probation Department by police.

    I could never fathom the look on the faces of the police when they received the call saying an Elementary school’s computers have been destroyed and defiled by such a mindless act. While the replacement process will be an expensive one for the school, it was probably even worse for the poor staff that had to clean up the mess. One could only feel their remorse and feel sorry for them.

    There is an old saying: "When you gotta go, you gotta go."

    Actually, with Apple, it might not be as expensive as you think. They generally are very nice to schools and if they explain what happened, it is possible that Apple will work something out with the school.

    It would generate a lot of goodwill for Apple, which they could probably use right now between the Malware items popping up everywhere and the Greenpeace protests.

    That being said, this kid was just plain dumb and I hope they lock him away for a very long time and possibly the parents as well, after all, they are responsible for educating their children about what is right and wrong.

    ya right, Apple has poor relations with school districts. Our district has purchased over 150 iPads and what they consider an educational discount is laughable. If anything happens to an iPad whether its defective or accidental, we are told to find the nearest apple store and deal with it there.

    I blame the parents for the values and manors they teach him. Also why was there $36,000 in school equipment laying around unsecured. There is just enough money in a band room and even thats locked.How much piss can come out An 11 year old? lol
    Side note who was watching the kid?

    The school doesn't set book prices. That is the fault of the book publishers.

    "Destroyed"?? Just rinse them off, let them dry and they're good to go. The other kids, forced to use them, will punish the perp in their own way and problem solved. Sheesh, why does everything in America get a complete over-reaction?

    **Mod edit: unnecessary comment**

    On a note pertaining to the article. I think the school's insurance will cover this, or the state depending on whether it was public or private. So no harm no foul. The computer's probably weren't purchase for retail since they were bought in bulk.

    The malware thing is way overplayed. The "Greenpeace" idiots are only making themselves look stupid, not Apple. Apple doesn't need to do anything to look good but keep making awesome products. The school should just sue the kid's parents and make them pay for it.

    I feel like this article is written for a local paper and the location of the incident is a given. But it's not. All I read was upper Allen school and cumberland county. Am I missing something?
