Garbage-Throwing Incident at 9/11 Memorial Outrages New Yorkers

DON EMMERT/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New Yorkers are outraged over a report that kids from Brooklyn's Junior High School 292 got so bored during a visit to the 9/11 Museum and Memorial at the site where the World Trade Center towers were brought down by terrorists that they tossed baseballs and empty soda bottles into the reflecting pools.

One student tried to justify the action of classmates by saying, "No one was disrespecting.  It wasn’t nothing like that.  No one was being serious.  Everyone was kind of bored and it was just something to do."

Whatever the explanation, a teacher from Junior High School 292 called the incident "a total disgrace."

The Department of Education has promised to look into the alleged incidents.
