A 13 year old shows off multiple guns in multiple social media messages sent to threaten other middle school students. The mental health counselors at the juvenile justice facility state that he was at moderate risk to repeat the behavior, so the judge assigned him to write a 250 word essay on “The Importance of Abiding By The Law.”

If you guessed that he would be growing and selling marijuana and would shoot a 20 year old man during one of his drug deals, you would have been correct.
Yet Kyle Rittenhouse is facing multiple life sentences for shooting a convicted, mentally disturbed child molester who was trying to kill him.
Our justice system is broken. Our society is irreparably broken.
