The incident, which the teen told police also stemmed from his being transferred to an alternative school, sent some 600 students, parents, and coaches scurrying to get out of the car's path Tuesday evening. Cowen allegedly roared onto the school's athletic fields, aiming the car at individuals and spinning it in circles.
Many witnesses said they were surprised that no one was hurt or killed. They said that the driver was going so fast the car went airborne at one point and that it barely missed a father pushing his 7-month-old son in a stroller.
This is what happens when we're tolerant of idiotic behavior in society. Everyone is a special & unique snowflake, so let's just forgive a dumb kid carrying a 16-inch (????) knife and driving a car eighty miles per hour on suburban roads, nearly killing a father and 7-month-old son in the process. Sure, $500 bail and a psychiatric evaluation seems fair - why punish the kid any more; he's already being transferred to an "alternative school"?
