Long story short- my boys' uncle & cousin ended up in jail over the weekend - the cuz for assault & the uncle for murder! The uncle ran down a father of 2 boys, 1 of which witnessed it & went to school w/ my boys! My bff is the exwife of the accused, & they have a dau together as well. This one horrible act has effected so many people on so many levels- & it all seems so unreal to me. I have to be strong for my boys, my bff & former in-laws, but hate to say, I saw it coming. Maybe not to this extreme extent- but I think we all knew these 2 were headed down a bad path. How do you deal w/ stuff like this? How do you stop people or get them help before things get this far?

It all sounds so horrible and I'm sorry for everyone involved. There really isn't anything that could have been done to prevent this. We may have a sense that certain people are heading down the wrong path but rarely is there anything that anyone can say or do that changes that. Again, I'm sorry.
