Not having the death penalty in Michigan sucks sometimes....
"Michigan school shooting suspect Ethan Crumbley charged with terrorism, murder: 'Not just an impulsive act'
Four students have died from the shooting"
Shit heel looks to have stolen his parents Sig Sauer 9mm pistol. Reportedly, rumors had been swirling at the school for days that a shooting would happen. The shooter posted numerous warnings on various social media outlets that he would do what he ended up doing.
The prosecutor sounded like charges will be coming for the parents too.
Oxford is a giant school - something like 1600 HS students alone - the exact situation in nearly all these mass school shootings.
Lots of blame to go around - the shooter, teachers, parents, kids, maybe security guards & cops - but we all know who's really to blame - the gun.
At least judging by how the media has blamed a SUV for the Xmas parade slaughter.
Charlie LeDuff blasts the fame seeking prosecutor, sheriff, and the never shy of a camera Michigan AG Dana Nessel for showboating on national TV while local families seek answers:
"And now Attorney General Dana Nessel has stuck her beak into the media orgy, taking to late-night cable news and issuing press releases how Oxford school officials should let her in.
It appears the rush to the dim bulbs of cable TV has distracted them from doing their elected jobs effectively. The prosecutor decided last Friday that she was going to announce charges against the parents of 15-year-old gunman Ethan Crumbley through the media. The sheriff went on TV to complain that the prosecutor never informed him that charges were coming, and that he only learned of her intentions through media reports.
'Honestly, I Don't Care'
The prosecutor took to CNN afterward, insisting the sheriff's department did know. “I don't know where the lack of communication was," she told Wolf Blitzer. "And honestly, I don't care.”
She should have cared. At that very moment, James and Jennifer Crumbley were on the run. Only by the grace of good fortune did we not end up with two more bodies and another brutal round of televised finger-pointing.
Prosecutor McDonald has since changed public relations firms, I am told.
Without a doubt, it is grueling and important work our law enforcement officials are doing.
Having said that, the prosecutor should have informed the sheriff that she was seeking charges. The sheriff then would have put a surveillance team on the Crumbleys. The judge would have signed the arrest warrant. The sheriff would have made the arrest. And only then should there have been a press conference.
But it didn't happen that way. Bouchard and McDonald must have missed each other walking down the virtual hallway preparing for their morning news hits – not local outfits, where wounded citizens seek answers – but over the airwaves of national outlets broadcasting from the concrete canyons of Manhattan.
We need answers here at home. Not acrimony. We need leaders, not talk show guests. Why does Nessel appear on the Don Lemon show on Monday night, a week after the horror, bemoaning the fact that the Oxford Community Schools declined her offer to conduct a third-party review of last week's shooting rampage." -------------------------------------------
Nessel's "involvement" is particularly grating as her office is utterly unneeded for this - local prosecutors (presumably) have a slam dunk case.
While Nessel's complaining that the locals are (rightfully) shutting her out, Governor Whitmer gets not so much as a stern word as the thousands of dead grand parents she helped kill rot in their graves.
