I am sorry these kids, you want to be there for them, then you hear this. I just hope he off the streets for a long while. You have to guess that he was up to no good to be at that school. In a parents mind, school is supposed to be a safe ground where you can strive for excellence, not fear for your life.

Thanks for grouping them all together, I am sure you were very supportive before this happened. You won't be there any longer for them because a kid who no longer attends the school snuck a gun in? Hope you're not a parent.

Why even give them that designation if they are not granted the tools police use?
