A middle school student in Crosby, Texas posted a “kill list” online with the names of a dozen peers, and the parents of the children on the list are saying that the boy won’t face any charges because his father is a Harris County deputy.
“Does that have anything to do with it? If it was another child, would they have taken him in?” asked the mother of one of the targeted children.
“He listed names,” claimed another mother. “My son was one of them. [He said] that he wanted to hurt them and by hurt, he meant kill. I don’t want him to be back on campus with my kid or any other kid. He’s a danger to himself and other students.”
The Harris County District Attorney’s office chose not to press charges against the 13-year-old boy, saying that a thorough investigation was done to look into the matter and it was determined that the facts of the case led them to the decision. Harris County Precinct 3 maintains that the boy’s father had nothing to do with the decision.
The “kill list” was discovered after an online conversation between the boy and a female classmate on Facebook circulated.
The boy is currently suspended from school, and parents of the targeted children say they aren’t sure when or even if he will return.
