Threat to the school?

-A A +A

I have been saddened by the two front-page stories about a high school boy the paper claims is a threat to the school.
He may be 18, but that does not mean you have to publish his name to everyone in town.
He obviously was very depressed when he sent the text to his friend about hurting himself and others. I am glad there was an intervention by police to make sure he was OK. There were no plans or weapons ready according to the article.
Haven’t we all said we are so mad we want to punch someone?
That doesn’t mean we are going to do it. I wish the paper would cut this kid some slack and let him get the help he needs, without making things worse.
