Got a sneaking hunch that this was not a "casual" meeting. Time to proact here, and put a substation @ The Kroc Center. And make Freeman explain who/how he got a gun. I'm sure it is a gun with a clear serial number visible. He doesn't look like a thug. He looks a little scared. Maybe he can be saved.

"Another teen lost to the world of crime."

Ain't nothing "lost" about these punks. They know exactly where they are and what they are doing. They make a conscious decision to attempt murder just like any other criminal. Proscute and jail them as such.

I wonder if one thug shooting another thug in the butt even qualifies as a felony under the new GA No Jail For Anything law? I mean...they doubled the shoplifting limit before you get a felony charge. How many butt shots do you get before it's a felony?
