Unbelievable that a kid with a criminal history from Dublin is allowed to go to Foothill!! Do we have no screening process?

I am curious why this boy had been attending Foothill since last year.

Unbelievable that a young man lost his life and the biggest concern is why he was allowed to attend Foothill. I truly hope his family is able to find some peace amongst this tragedy.

@Ptownmama: It's unbelievable to me that your sympathy embraces the criminal and excludes the police officer who stands between you and a baseball bat.
