Now can you tell me why was the 14 yr., old not arrested. I am very familiar with the procedures at the Juvenile Hall. I know for a fact of teenagers being placed under arrest for less charges, so why was this teen released to his parents. If you ask me there seems to be favoritism within law enforcement . Im sure many would agree.
