i hope he got the 'proper' discipline for that...no offense but at 12 years old I definately could understand the value of a million dollars, and have enough respect not to vandalise a piece of art especially in a museum.
It is total bs to say that 12 years old is too young to understand the difference between a harmless prank and vandalism.
the kid isn't 4 years old - he's TWELVE. he's a freaking Juvenile Delinquent! In delaware, we'd throw him into the Ferris School for Boys - there are kids in there that vandalized store windows costing only a couple hundred bucks - and this snot gets off when he defaces a 1.5 Million irreplaceable piece of art? SHEESH! they even have to examine his damn spit as it gooed up with the gum to determine the best solvent to get that crap off - he's such a punk!
