He will have 7 years to think about why he did this, every single day.

Instead of studying, let's be idiots and hit someone in the head with a hammer. Come on - who is stupid enough to think that isn't going to screw up someone or kill them. Only seven years? The guy is a worthless SOB.

In no way am I defending this young man who was the attacker, but he was 17, full of testosterone and feeling threatened. There is NO excuse for his actions, but those conditions might have caused him to lose control (well...obviously, he lost control). I can only hope he continues his education in prison and uses this as a time to better himself, so when he does go before that parole board, he can prove to them he has become a real man and not just another young prison inmate.

When your only tool is a hammer, every problem in life looks like a nail.

"It wasn't my intent to hurt anyone. It's not in my nature."

I've always found that if I don't intend to hurt someone, I'm more successful at not hurting them if I don't hit them in the back of a head with a hammer.

Does he not know the difference between "intend" and "plan," or is he lying to himself and the rest of us? His question to the shop teacher suggests he not only intended to hit the victim, but he thought about it beforehand too.

Ban Whack-A-Mole. It leads to violent outbursts like this one.

Ban shop classes. They lead to crimes like these, and dirtbags like Jesse James.

I'm late replying to this because I've been out of town for a couple of weeks. The answer is, I'm in Fontana, and have no idea how the website decided I'm in Anaheim.
