Michigan high school shooting suspect, 15, appears at court hearingEthan Crumbley, to be tried as an adult, seen on video during hearing after four students killed in Tuesday attack The United States of America will never learn no matter how many prayers they say 👎 Yes charge the parents who gave him open access to the gun & whose only concern after he shot a dozen other people was to tell him not to talk to the police. No statement however mealy mouthed & bogus of sorrow or condolence or apology for the premeditated murder their son did.
