    I’ve lived up here for decades so I should be used to this by now, but it’s still just jarring that the person who presumably did this is 15. Of course, I’ve had friends mugged by 12-year-olds so I shouldn’t be shocked. Planning to go home and try to make sure my 1.3-year-old (I’m trying to get away from the months thing) doesn’t end up like this. :(

      That didn’t take long after the release of the video. How much was the bounty?

        Not sure, but I’m guessing this kid made the mistake of attending school this past year. As such, it wouldn’t be too difficult for a teacher to pick him out.

        • Just a thought.

          Scan in all local year books from the past 15 years. Run crime scene photos against that database using facial recognition.

            Many poorer schools don’t have yearbooks because none of the students can/will pay for them to guarantee enough sales to justify the effort and expense.

            Source: Went to a poor school in the Atlanta area for three years. Have zero yearbooks from those years.

    It’s sad that a 15 year old may have committed such an ugly crime. We have to do better as a city.

      Yes… the city made him do it. *eyeroll*

        I dunno, I’m usually THIS close to popping one off whenever I’m in a McD’s bathroom.

          There is another young person in critical condition with a gun wound to the head, you could be a trifle considerate.

            It’s enough that these thugs take away our sense of safety, no need for them to take our sense of humor.

        I blame us for this person’s behavior. Definitely our fault.

    • dcd

      There are certain things for which I am willing to accept my fair share of collective guilt. This ain’t one of them.

    Shooting people before noon and in such a public place? Smh.
