Are we going crazy? To arrest a 17-year-old because a pocket knife was found in his car is insane. We are ruining the boy's life. Do I understand it means a felony, two years in jail and a fine up to $10,000? What is the world coming to?
A better solution is to look at his behavior record first, then determine if he needs to be suspended for a few days or have driving the car to school terminated. Jail? Felony? Give me a break - I mean, give him a break.
