The cop should have just shot him. Restraining order from Mom? This piece of garbage has a stellar future ahead of him

A 17-year-old kid punches the cop and now the cop will cry neck pain and retire with a $500k per year pension. What a wuss.

For the same reason that 99.9% of people who attack the cops aren't shot. I guess you're implying that if at was a black guy, he would have been shot. Well, if the cops shot a black man everytime they resisted arrest, there would be FAR less black men in the world. I would have had AT LEAST 1000 dead black guys under my belt.
Maybe if he drove a car at the cop like Bell did he would have been shot. Maybe of he resembled a wanted rape suspect like Diallo and reached for his wallet in a dark alley he would have been shot. Maybe if he had a butcher knife like Eleanor Bumpers he would have been shot.
Get the picture, dope?

And Hartman will get YOd, as in Youthful Offender status, not serve ANY time and will have his record sealed. 10 years from now when he kills a cop everyone will cluck, cluck "why was he able to slip through the cracks"? Adult crime deserves adult time and adult sanctions. Not that an adult who assaulted this cop would have done any time either, but hey one can dream. THere needs to be minimum mandatory sentences taking discretion away from the liberal judges requiring a minimum sentence for certain crimes such as this.

He's 17. No youthful offender status. He's an adult in the eyes of the criminal justice system.

Threre's got to be more to this story, this kid lives blocks away, why was he not picked up fpr that order, he's hanging out in full view, they had to know who he was, or his parents would have showed them, and I find it hard to imageine that someone would risk getting shot when he had nothing to do with the actual incident...I tend to think some kind of threat was made, or maybe some type of abuse. The night crew in that area are known to be cocky... I would'nt say it if I did'nt know and hear.

KBM, if you don't mind me saying

YO is afforded to non-designated felony offenders at the age of 16, 17, and 18 at the time of offense. This nightmare kid qualifies.

What's the difference in youth status, as opposed to The same status applied to DWI... Are they both a crime and why would there be a difference, or was it made up... It's complicated.

If you know so much, tell us the story and name the names. Why keep us in suspense?

Sir with all do respect, Im not in a position to give you the names or name, there's enough people who know and have spoken to myself. Take my word, my truthfullness and allow myself to put what I know forward. If you work or worked that area you would know anyway. I have nothing against you, just respect my honesty... Have a great day, Sir

Sometimes the difference between

JD-Juvenile Delinquent-ages 7-15.
JO-Juvenile Offender-same ages for most felonies.
YO-Youthful Offender-16-18.
PINS-Persons in need of Supervision-up to 18.

can make me dizzy. They all are programs to guide a misdirected youth back on track. They offer sealed records which in the eyes of the law mean a prosecution has never been had. Judges can inpose certain conditions like alcohol awareness classes or make them show acceptable report cards to satisfy conditions.
