Everyone keeps saying he needs help, but also that he needs to be locked up to keep us safe. I agree, but unfortunately our system only allows for one or the other. Maybe someday we can lock him away while he gets the help he needs instead of locking him away in a place that will undoubtedly make him worse.
I think we also should be interested in how this 18 year old arrived at this place so we can better understand what was going on in his mind and maybe help prevent others from following his example.
It happened at Columbine as well, everyone was quick to identify troubled teens that had been bullied and whisk them away from everyone else. But, no one seemed to stop and say hey, what would happen if we just stopped the bullying to begin with? Or actually punished our kids if found to be bullies so they stopped?
