MI Officials Made One HUGE Mistake When Charging Ethan Crumbley’s Parents With “Involuntary Manslaughter”

It’s understandable that everyone is furious and outraged over the school shooting in Oxford, Michigan. It seems like there were a million “red flags” that were missed by the school and the parents, that could’ve prevented this massacre from happening.


Even on the day of the shooting, the parents were meeting with school officials, who found a disturbing piece of art drawn by Ethan, portraying a shooting and victims. It’s mindboggling that nobody thought to call the police or at the very least, check his backpack for the gun, for crying out loud.

Later, after the shooting had already occurred, Ethan’s mom reportedly sent a text to her son’s phone that said, “Ethan, don’t do it.”

So, when Michigan officials charged the parents, many people felt that it was fitting, since they appeared to know their son was troubled and capable of “doing it,” but didn’t take appropriate steps to stop him.

However, it appears that Michigan officials may have made a grave error.

According to experts, they don’t have a LAW to back up the charges that they filed.

Former high-ranking U.S. Attorney Andrew McCarthy explains what Michigan got completely wrong:

“It’s going to be the subject of a prosecution where the kid who did the shooting who’s going to be treated as an adult which the prosecutors have the discretion to do is appropriately looking at multiple life counts and attempted murder counts, you know he can’t live long enough to serve the number of years that are going to be imposed in this case but we’re not supposed to make criminal law on the fly,” he said.

“And the state of Michigan has considered a number of times enacting a law, this child access prevention law that many states have adopted which would make criminal what happened here which was the that the parents allowed the child to get access to the weapon.  But the state of Michigan has decided not to enact that law.”

“And you can argue that that’s a good thing or a bad thing but the fact is it’s a thing and it’s up to the legislature to make the criminal law so what happened here is they don’t have a law to prosecute what the parents did even though the legislature’s considered it and not enacted it.”

“So at a time when everybody’s hot and emotions are raw, prosecutors are creating a crime on the fly to attach to these parents.  And if you think about it, it doesn’t make much more sense to accuse them of complicity in murder, any more than it makes sense to accuse the school officials of murder.”

“I mean, yes, everybody dropped the ball here but let’s be real about who committed the murder and who didn’t.”


And legal legend Jonathan Turley appears to agree:

“I have not seen the evidence that would make a compelling case to say that the parents were complicit criminally as opposed to being negligent. https://foxnews.com/us/michigan-manhunt-ethan-crumbley-parents… Michigan elected not to pass an child access prevention law…”

“…There is a risk to improvisational element in charging such a case. The question is whether there is actual knowledge or complicity by the parents as opposed to negligence. Otherwise, charges in this case could present strong grounds for challenge.”

I live in Michigan, and I want nothing more than to see everyone who dropped the ball, punished, and that includes school officials, too.

But this is looking like yet again, another example of the prosecutor using emotion, not the law to charge a person.


The same thing happened with Kyle Rittenhouse.

We need to get back to following the law, not the mob, or our emotions, no matter how outraged or angry we are.
