This is down the street from me.. 14 years old! Please someone explain to me exactly what a child could possibly do to someone that they felt that death would be a justifiable punishment?! Seriously alot of people need to seriously take some DBT classes bcuz seems to me that everybody out running around with unchecked emotions they don’t know how to regulate and just be impulsively dishing out unjustified reactions to those unchecked feelings and killing anybody and everybody who makes them mad or hurts their feelings.. man… Adults need to start looking at their actions and behaviors. Seriously. And ffs DBT classes will change ur whole outlook and the way u react to situations. Get into DBT classes people and learn to check ur emotions
