You gotta wonder

Further to my earlier post here, the soldier who shot and wounded two kids in a local park appears to have been charged with one count each of dangerous conduct with a weapon, discharging a weapon in a public place, and possession of an unregistered firearm.

I’m no lawyer, but you have to wonder why the charges weren’t more serious – like malicious wounding or even attempted murder/manslaughter. As I noted before, you also have to wonder if it had been two white kids he’d shot whether he’d have been let out on bail and into the protective arms of his Army buddies.

I’m sure he’s having a lovely xmas – far more so than the parents of the wounded kids!
