Eye Editorial * in my opinion...
>> 4-6-01
In ERIE, Pa. A 9-year-old girl brings a loaded handgun to her elementary school and is suspended.
There was also something about the father being charged - Is the girl going to be in any type of "court ordered" therapy?
and is the family going to be investigated and in therapy? Or is she going to be another one that slips through the cracks and years from now sits in jail, nameless? Isn't it time that we do something before the seed is planted? And not wait until it's too late???
