I am reeling... A member of my non-immediate family was apparently just booked on attempted murder. The details aren't important, but I don't know how to react to this... What do I say to his mother? And what do I say to HIM? There is no doubt that he did it - he was caught red-handed, so to speak - so what do I do if and when he is released??? I don't want him around my child. He doesn't live in my town so I rarely see him, but we have family get-togethers once a year or so... I am just in shock!Answer Question

You don't bring it up and if it does get brought up you sympathise with the family members. It's hard on families when their loved one does something stupid. They are betrayed to, because when stuff like that happens, it's the family members who are sitting at home ashamed and missing their loved one. More then likely the family will end up pissed at him at some point, but it still hurts.
If you don't want to have your kids around him then don't bring your kids around him. It won't be that hard.
