I agree with Scott. Where are the parents when this is happening? What kind of parenting has gone on that would make a 15-year-old act so violently? He should be charged as an adult; when found guilty, he needs life in prison. Take a life senselessly; he needs to give up his life and rot in prison with no parole!

The lack of parenting is what drives children to turn to this kind of violence. Sad. 😪
