dastedman 1 year, 5 months ago on School officer hit by vehicle in foot chase

There is much we do not know here, except that we all pray for this brave officers recovery. Did he target and deliberately strike the officer? Was this an illegal immigrant? Was the car stolen? Or, was this an unbalanced kid involved in a chain of bad decisions that just got worse and worse? A mug shot really tells us nothing. I'm not defending him or what he did. I just think we need a lot more facts before we start calling for hard time in an adult prison. NewsReader is right that there is a great likelihood that that action will turn the kid into a career criminal.
