wow. so if you get robbed buying drugs, either: a) don't call the cops at all, consider it a lesson learned, re-asses your life choices, etc; or b) at least don't tell them why you were there!

Is the kid who admitted trying to buy drugs going to get in touble, too? Or only the guy who robbed him? Plus it was on school grounds, which are drug free zones (supposedly). The article is a bit vague.

One would hope so. If it were my kid they would be so busted at home and in court. I count myself so lucky I haven't had to deal with this.
