Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, December 03, 2021

Prosecutors in Michigan took a rare step on Friday by filing involuntary manslaughter charges against the parents of the 15-year-old accused of fatally shooting four students in the halls of Oxford High School, saying that they had bought the semiautomatic handgun that he used to carry out the deadly rampage as a Christmas gift.

Karen D. McDonald, the prosecutor in Oakland County, detailed a litany of missed opportunities to prevent the shooting as she spoke at a news conference announcing four manslaughter charges each against the gunman's parents, James and Jennifer Crumbley.

I don't see this going anywhere. The kid is toast but Mommy & Daddy should be just fine.

"The kid is toast but Mommy & Daddy should be just fine."

I wouldn't bet on that. They're cowardly absconders now with a price on their head and a prosecutor who is hell-bent on pursuing her "involvement" case against them.

Chances are some local LEO is going to find the car they're driving parked at a cheap motel.

Nonetheless, they're run off (with $4000 to their name) and left their son to face the music alone which won't bode well for their parenting skills when they're finally hauled in.

They've also classified themselves as flight risks now so I doubt there will be any bail.

They're -------- for sure, but you can't put them in jail just for that. Not locking up the gun probably isn't a crime. Not sure what they'll get for not ratting the kid out as a nut. Or buying the nut a gun in the first place.

That's a shame.

I don't think so. They had a duty to warn the school that he had access to weapons but like typical MAGAts they want all their freedumbs without recognizing their responsibility to the people around them.

"On Nov. 21, a teacher found Ethan Crumbley searching for ammunition on his phone and alerted school officials, who left messages for his mother that went unreturned. His mother later texted him, "LOL, I'm not mad at you. You have to learn not to get caught."" Says it all.

They are toast too. "Four days before the shooting, Ethan accompanied his father to a gun shop, where James Crumbley bought a 9mm handgun, prosecutors said. Michigan law prohibits those under 18 years of age from buying or possessing firearms, except in limited circumstances such as hunting with a license and a supervising adult."

If they were fine, they wouldn't have tried to run.

"Two attorneys for the Crumbleys, Shannon Smith and Mariell Lehman, have said the couple never sought to evade authorities."

How can lawyers stand up in front of a judge and outright lie like that?

"On the morning of the shooting, a teacher discovered a drawing by Ethan Crumbley that depicted a handgun, a bullet, and a bleeding figure next to the words "Blood everywhere," "My life is useless," and "The thoughts won't stop - help me."" The kid was crying out for help and his parents knew he had a weapon and DID NOTHING. Fk them. Let them rot in jail. They are useless to society.

I saw the mother sobbing during her arraignment .... finally some emotion but only over her arrest and not the four children who will never live their lives. They are scum just like the scum they raised.
