    Problem with trying him as a juvenile is he can only be punished till 21 i believe.

    He'll probably be 18 by time the courts get finished and he actually is sentenced. So sad all around this situation!

    Are you saying you don't think things can be one to a person to cause them to snap and kill innocent people?

    I’m saying bullying is not an excuse to kill innocent people.

    Already addressed. It's not an excuse. It's an explanation. I don't see it as a problem that one would feel sorry for the shooter in regards to what may have happened to him to cause him to take deadly actions.

    To each his own. The shooter gets zero sympathy from me.

    A girl is sexually assaulted. Her dad sees the assaulter out in public and fires at him. Shoots the assaulter but also shoots an innocent person. No sympathy at all for the shooter?

    While metal detectors seem like an easy answer, how long would it take to get 1500 kids through metal detectors each morning? Then you'd have half of them setting them of each day with belts/backpacks/electronics and other things. While Metal detectors seem like a GREAT IDEA, I'm not sure how practical they are at a majority of schools.

    Completely different scenario...he wasn't aiming to shoot an innocent person in that situation. In Marshall County he meant to shoot innocent people it seems.

    Your post is valid. However what that thought process says in gerenal is, two lives are not worth that.

    Incorrect. If, convicted, it’s 25-Life.

    So you’re ok with turning him loose on society in under 3 years?

    As a Juvenile? My understanding, based on other cases that involved juveniles in capital crimes, was that they had to be released at 21. Or perhaps is that released into adult prison system?
