Three years ago, he shot up Indiana Black Expo, injuring nine people and avoiding killing them only by chance. Arrested and charged as an adult (he was 18 at the time), he was sentenced to 8 years in prison. He served less than two; he was in a "community transition program" and yesterday, he was in a car trying to outrun the police. It worked about like you'd expect and when the car was stopped, he was among those who fled on foot and were caught. Among his fellow passengers, a young man of 18, carrying two loaded handguns.
He's back behind bars now, facing a newly-limited future. He seems to be determined to fail; at this point, the only person who can haul him out of a life of crime is himself, and his track record augurs ill.
