Witness to school shooting says gunman targeted 4 boys

Student Danny Komertz was a witness to the Chardon school shooting and he tells Brooke the gunman aimed at a group of four boys in the cafeteria. Komertz said he heard a pop and looked up to see “a gun pointing” at the group of boys sitting at a table. He goes on to tell Brooke what the students did when the shots rang out.

    Your legal expert does not know what she is talking about as to the death penalty in the Ohio school shooting case.
    The United States Supreme Court has ruled that juveniles cannot be executed even if tried as an adult. If I recall without looking it up the decision was rendered in the early 2000's.
    As to cameras in the courtroom, each state's courts have specific rules on when cameras are permitted, perhaps a two minute search of Google would have been helpful.

    Tomtom & ladydi,
    You two are unbelievable. Are you married to each other? You believe that a kid with a mental illness has the right to kill people because you believe that he was bullied? Wow…..I hope you don’t live in my neighborhood.

    Killing one's tormentors, real or imagined, in the case of bullying, is not appropriate. Unfortunately, many school officials have sat on their hands instead of being proactive. It may turn out that this teen felt there was no place he could go for help.

    As sad as this whole thing is....I have to say that if these guys were bullying this TJ Lane kid, then they deserve what they got. People and especially kids from 10 or 11 years on need to learn not to bully and screw with other people becaue they're quiet or different whatever the reason. If you do, then be prepared that the person or persons you are screwing with may just be deranged enough to do something about it. No sympathy here....look elsewhere......

    Those that support shooting bullies are part of the problem.

    The 4 boys did not deserve death. My heart and prayers are with the families. I am sure a jury will give Lane a fair sentence. Although he gave the 4 decreased students, an unfair sentence.
