This might be one of the more inspiring stories I’ve read in years. And I say “inspiring” because it is only when the “tough on crime” crowd gets so clown-like that the American populace might finally see the absurdity of giving police, prosecutors, prison administrators and courts so much power.
What’s wild is that this “tough on crime” movement has been led by Republicans, the same people who claim to support small government. Really? You want small government? Then take away the gun, send the kid back to class, call the step father and make him take a gun safety class that he pays for, and then get on with life. Enough said…very simple. The kid (strike that…I mean “the child”) is a “suspect”? Unbelievable.
