A very wrong picture

What’s wrong with this picture? A 10-year-old child who, in his home, has access to a handgun, an ammunition clip and a knife, managed to carry them to school in his backpack so that he can kill a child who is annoying.

Rather than the child and his parents, or whoever is responsible, being appropriately and legally dealt with in Juvenile Court, he is arrested by the Stevens County prosecutor. He’s then declared guilty by an ignorant judge who refused to accept the testimony of the forensic psychologist regarding the child’s symptoms of bipolar disorder.

All of this is open to the media.
