It should be obvious to all that the sentence imposed upon Robert Gladden is not due to his actual crimes, heinous as they were, but as a statement in response to the tragedy of Newtown ("High school shooter gets 35 years," Feb. 26). No doubt an extra 20 years was "tacked on" to show the country that Maryland is "tough on crime" and to use the Perry Hall teen-ager as a scapegoat and example for all school shootings.

Perry Hall High School has been awarded a $35,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Education to assist in its efforts to recover from a shooting on the first day of school. George Roberts, principal of the high school in Baltimore County, said the school applied for the Project School Emergency Response to Violence grant shortly after the shooting took place. It will assist the school with bringing in part-time counselors, or temporary crisis counselors that could be used for tragic events, such as the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn., Roberts said.

A stretch of Seven Courts Drive in Perry Hall where a local resident was killed in 2012 will be reconstructed this spring an effort to slow traffic and improve safety. County Councilman David Marks, whose 5th District includes Perry Hall, announced the project Feb. 13 by the county Department of Public Works. He said the $10,000 project should be finished by Memorial Day. Plans call for installing a brick island with pedestrian crossing on the road between the Seven Oaks Senior Center and Seven Oaks Elementary School.

With no thanks to the Democratic state senator who represents the area, the Baltimore County community of Perry Hall is safer from gun violence than it was six months ago. We can say that much. Sen. Kathy Klausmeier might have voted against the important gun control bill that her colleagues in the Maryland Senate passed on Thursday, but Bobby Gladden has gone to prison, and that means his former fellow students at Perry Hall High won't have to worry about seeing him with a gun in the cafeteria again.

In the recent article "Perry Hall Shooter gets 35 Years" (Feb. 25) I ask myself, what was Judge Robert E. Cahill Jr. thinking? Trying a troubled 15-year-old boy who made a very bad choice as an adult instead of placing him in the juvenile court system where he would receive the psychiatric help he needs, is a total travesty of justice. Judge Robert Cahill is sending this child to adult prison for 35 years, which is far beyond the legal guidelines. I hope there is enough public outrage to appeal this unreasonable sentence.
