17 year old Columbine student was arrested for making threats near the 6 month anniversary of the big shooting. He's now facing 2 years in jail. Meanwhile, this other guy gets FOUR MONTHS for KILLING his wife. Not THREATENING to kill his wife-- shooting her and then leaving the house and then COMING back to finish her off when he realized he had more bullets. He finally managed to kill her while she was on the phone with a 911 operator.

The Columbine kid was arrested, NOT after a half naked man covered in blood ran to police to report a brutal murder, but after RUMORS were reported to the school faculty. The boy reportedly said that he was going to "finish the job started by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold." Oh and there was a note in his room that said something about how much life sucks. The boy had no idea what he was talking about. No weapons were found at or near his house.

Jefferson County's chief deputy district attorney was trying his dammest to get the boy charged as an adult, but it looks like the kid's headed to juvie. Chances are they'll keep him their until the trials over (6 mons to 1 year is the usual wait I hear) for "observation," since he's been talkin' all suicidal (unlike most 17 year old boys that have just been arrested for the first time).

Can you imagine is that dead women had gone to the police saying her husband had threatened to kill her and would they please lock him up for two years? They would laugh her beaten ass all the way to her grave.

One of the jurors in the murder case was quoted as saying "We feel for the family, but Jimmy needs help. The prison system just won't give him help." Aint gonna be anybody that thoughtful when they put away that 17 year old. And if he didn't have a chip on his shoulder and serious violent tendencies now, he's sure as hell gonna have them when he gets out.

I hope he's not a pretty boy.
