Well, of course he turned himself in - after his face was plastered all over the news. It is a shame, however, that his slick lawyer portrays him as a "handsome young man" who is grieving. What about the 7 year old victim who will be in a wheelchair for months, maybe years, to come? Why did this "handsome" young man have a gun? Where did he get it? Why was a 16 yr. old playing in the woods with a 7 yr. old? Why did it take a week - A WEEK - for his family to do the right thing and bring him in to the police?
