    Dang…and Not even the Dog days of Summer!
    But, Seriously, I do pray that the Justice System doesn’t simply lock the 17yr old up for life without investigating the child’s HX & circumstances leading to this event & any mental health issues, etc…my kids know the child as an acquaintance and says these actions are quite surprising and out of character! You don’t wake up and stab a family member for no reason! … Too much life to be wasted! So sad!
