The officer clearly wasn’t prepared for what she saw. After seeing photos of the damage left by his destructive rampage and hearing the stories about how irretrievable he can become when enraged or simply “in the zone”, in he walked, all four foot something of him, looking vaguely awkward while his grandmother sat, arms folded tightly across her chest, all too familiar with what was unfolding before her. Perhaps she was expecting a monster. Instead she saw was a confused and mixed up teenage boy who is completely compromised by the failure of the education system to meet his needs.
