This is really bad. "He was released without bail in his mother's custody pending a future court date. " - poor move. He should have stayed in jail for at least 48 hours. Kid should be charged as an adult. Maybe the family should move.

This is a bad seed to do something like this at 14. I see a prison cell with his name on it.
