In Shomrim case, there's plenty of blame to go around

May 13, 2012

Regarding the Werdesheim case, it's time to talk about who is responsible for what ("Werdesheim case lessons," May 6).

We now know that Corey Ausby, the teenager whom the Werdesheim brothers confronted, was suspended from school. Why weren't his parents or guardians called to the school to determine the problem, escort the child home and take responsibility for his behavior?

Why was he allowed to leave school in search of mischief in the neighboring area? How come the school and the parents aren't on trial for neglecting their responsibilities?

Let's get our legalities in order. It's not a racial situation, it's a doing what's right and doing what's wrong situation, regardless of race or nationality.
