It's a shame but children are a product of there parents, a trailer park you couldn't rent a house or an apartment, do you not understand what this does to a child...... Education is the future to stability when you get a good education you can support yourself & then you don't have to live in a trailer park, poor kid I guess he won't be graduating from high school which should be the most enjoyable time of a child's life.

In a way I feel sorry for the child. NObody knows what is going on the childs life behind closed doors. This child has a lot of anger inside of him. I do not think that he should be allowed back in school but we should give him an education so that he can support himself later in life. I am going to keep the faith and say that he will get the help he needs. LETS NOT GIVE UP ON HIM YET.

Flush this tart down the drain. You bleeding hearts are amazing. This kid if he wasn't so stupid to get caught would have killed god only knows how many people. So he lived in a trailer boo who get over it. They should end the family gene pool now before they breed. Wow the dad came to support him, hey lets give father of the year award. The other kid is out on bail, so they live in lunch box and can aford 50,000 bail? Why would you get the kid out? Send them to jail as adults let them get pumped in the arse for a few years so when they come out they don't hurt other people!

Children learn what they are taught. I raised 3 and when my teen stole something from the 5 and 10 cent store, yeah I'm old, I took her right back and made her tell the manager what she did. Guess what? I did my duty as a mother.This father probably did not parent his teen or maybe he is violent too. Pretty sure he ain't taking the kid to church on Sunday. Extremly SAD.

As long as you breathe in clean air, drink good water and eat good food and have a place to sleep, does it matter that you live in a trailer home? This was just an excuse for the teenage boys. They definitely should be punished for their uncarried out plans to kill people at the school. They should definitely not be sent back to the regular high school. They should go into programs for troubled teenagers, and live there.

Well said although I do feel sorry if they were made fun of because of the
trailer park situation. It does not matter to me were a person lives as long as they are of good character but it is sad that so many people use the term " Trailer Trash " as a cruel
and unkind remark. I have lived and worked with many wealthy and well educated people and can tell you this for sure - money and education does not buy class or good manners.

Of course the father of the nut job wont discuss the kids past. It probably shows how neglectful a parent he was.

so what if the kids lived in trailers? There is no need for newsday to mention that. They were not the most wealthy families but their parents wanted them to get a good education. Many families can't afford houses on long island becuase of the extreme prices. Newsday doesnt have to make it seem like mike was trailor trash becuase he wasnt. He's a really nice kid,with a lot of friends. I'm not saying he did not doing anything, becuase i don't know. but i am saying that the media does distort things and make them seem worse then what they really are.

YOU REALLY NEED TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL TO FORM COMPLETE AND ACCURATE SENTENCES....ALSO, LEARN HOW TO SPELL, ESPECIALLY THE NAME OF YOUR HIGH SCHOOL...ITS AMAZING WHEN SOMEONE TRIES TO INSULT PEOPLE OR MAKE A POINT WHEN THEY THEMSELVES ARE SHOWING THEIR IGNORANCE AND STUPIDITY IN GRAMMER AND ENGLISH

Usually when someone doesn't discuss the past it is to protect people involved...how do you know it is to protect him? People are so cynical..always ready to throw stones..If he was really such a bad guy he would have been throwing stones. I think it shows ALOT of restraint. Maybe everyone should be asking questions instead of making assumptions...is their anything any of you actually know? or are you just being judgemental?and fearful. Last time I checked Jesus wasn't standing for being judgmental ...so maybe the father goes to a different kind of "church" then you all do...because he wasn't being judgmental of ANYONE even his kid...Seems like he really understands GOD...and unconditional love....Do all of you?

Lots of kids grow up poor, in broken homes, living in trailer parks, and get teased, picked on, whathaveyou. BUT they do not turn around and hurt anyone, let alone mow down a school. There is no excuse and nothing understandable, or excusable about what these twits were up to! And really how much faith can anyone have in the psychologists to 'help' this kid?

[QUOTE who didn'r ="Jen"]Of course the father of the nut job wont discuss the kids past. It probably shows how neglectful a parent he was.[/QUOTE]

The father didn't have to be neglectful for the son to turn in the wrong direction. There are many great parents who have children who turn out wrong. You do what you can for your kids but sometimes when they get to a certain age they rebel. I've seen it with friends of mine. And...the trailer park remarks - unnecessary. Grow up people!

Keep your perspective. The kid did little more than talk and draw pictures. In fact, from memory, I don't think he broke any laws.

Jordan, you pathetic jerk. Don't you even BEGIN to figure out that you just validated everyone's opinion of trailer trash with that comment?

It truly IS funny.
