    Time to make a statement Kevin….Don't let the Juvenile DA drop this. This kid needs to be prosecuted.

    So the kid was arrested for making a threat, but police aren't willing to tell us the threat? Under California Penal Code 422 a threat is a crime only where it puts a reasonable person in fear, and cannot exist if the person could not carry out the threat. Is there some reason a counselor at school couldn't ask the kid one on one what going on in his life before our local storm troopers raided the guy's house?
