Sickening that it happened. But it is being treated seriously, so at least thatís good.

Didn't like the lawyer saying he thought it was a prank...is it only a crime if someone dies?  I think assault applies, the intent to do harm was there.

Well, in his defense, the lawyer is the father of one of the girls charged.  He never pretended to be unbiased.  He's an a** - not illegally brought in - therefore not a weapon.  Excuse me, a chair isn't a weapon until I break it over your back.  And breaking a chair over your head versus shooting you in that head with a gun - changes my intentions not one iota!
