    Maybe the parents are just on the down low for a moment while they gather their resources and get a really good attorney.
    Or worried their neighbors are going to lynch them.

    Gracious, I am glad I did not move to Michigan ~4 years ago when that seemed a possibility.

    Itís all so painfully sad. We have at last count 80 schools shut due to threats and fears.

    As Ldahl mentioned it seems like the parents were negligent. If I have learned anything recently itís that we rarely know all the relevant facts this early.

    With the public so outraged, the DA must have been under a lot of pressure to throw out as many severe charges as possible. Even terrorism, which must be pretty broadly defined in Michigan.

    I listened to her press conference and I didn’t hear the charge of terrorism. Hmm, did I miss that? Will review.

    But I suppose if the black dude in Waskesha is going to be charged with terrorism, the white high school dude in Michigan gets his equal and fair treatment, or something like that.

    Speaking of, as Rich and Charlie and the gang pointed out this week, where is that Waukesha story now anyway? I am sorry that’s your territory. It doesn’t seem to be a concern of main stream media anymore because it did not fit their narrative.

    edited to make sense,
    Waukesha not Kenosha

    The parade attack was Waukesha, and the Rittenhouse thing was Kenosha. Not a great year for eastern Wisconsin.

    I do agree with you and Charlie about a certain degree of selectivity in which cases the media chooses to highlight. The favored narratives are white guys (preferably cops) killing (or at least maiming) black guys, white kids shooting up high schools or any situation that can be twisted, spun or kneaded into white supremacy if you squint and look at it from just the right angle. The much more common and rising numbers of black people killing black people and white people killing white people at the retail level are of little interest.

    Even a guy plowing through streets full of old ladies and little kids will be forgotten fairly soon. While sufficiently lurid, the facts of the case canít be marshaled into a social justice or anti-gun story.
