    Breach of Recognizance… so, this violent individual has already been released on other charges. Therefore, although it would never happen, his freedom needs to be revoked and he should be locked up over the holidays, just to keep the public safe… as for his parent(s), they obviously can’t control him. So, he can’t be returned home. What’s wrong with this world.

      At 14 doing this, what’s it going to be at 16, 18…? Of course he should be locked, and sent for correction while there still might be time to figure out what is wrong with him.
