  1. I hope the cops charged that parents and I hope the judge does his job and puts them in prison. Somehow I doubt it. Parents need to be held accountable for their children.

    1. Sure, just what the system needs. Clogged our prisons up with non-violent offenders. There should be some punishment. Not sure what the weapon was the kid brought to school. To me, a weapon is a gun, but the article didn’t say that. There are numerous types of weapons. It did indicate the weapons wasn’t stored, but it did not actually say gun. This is kind of odd to me, since most times, “gun” is the very first thing mentioned. Was it a gun?
