Target: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton
Goal: Prosecute the 12-year-old Dallas boy who allegedly made a plan to shoot up his school, and instruct that he be placed in a therapy program.
A 12-year-old male student was arrested at a school in Dallas after he was allegedly found with an drawn plan showing how he was going to shoot up the school. The student had allegedly been asking a fellow classmate a few times the past few weeks to assist him in carrying out the school shooting.
It wasn’t until the boy showed the fellow student his detailed drawing of his plans to shoot up the school that the fellow student reported it. The boy was then sent to the principal’s office where he was allegedly found with the drawing of his plan.
Police said right now they’re unsure if the boy had access to weapons and what his motive may have been. He did not have any firearms on him when he was arrested.
Some have questioned whether the glorified media coverage of school shooting perpetrator has had any influence, as other students in the country were arrested recently for bombing and shooting threats. Regardless, urge officials to punish this boy and put him in an intensive therapy program to help him sort out his issues.
Dear Attorney General Paxton,
Amid all the school and other shootings lately, it’s extremely worrying that a 12-year-old male student in Dallas was arrested for allegedly drawing up a plan to shoot up his school after talking to a fellow classmate about it for weeks.
We’re lucky that this boy was stopped before a tragedy could occur, but swift and strong action must be taken to combat this problem and assure that others don’t attempt to follow in this boy’s footsteps. I urge you to serve justice to this allegedly dangerous boy and instruct that he enter a therapy program to deal with his problems.
[Your Name Here]
