    KY - Matthew Hackney, 17, kills 4, dies in MVA, Pike County, 20 Sept 2005

    A 17-year-old high school student who shot his parents had been released to their custody after being cited for public intoxication at school, state police officials said today.

    School officials said Matthew Hackney of Elkhorn Creek had taken prescription painkillers. Hackney was a senior at East Ridge High School in rural Pike County where counselors today were trying to help staff and students deal with the incident

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Kilgore criticized authorities for not arresting Hackney after he came to school impaired.

    "We asked he be taken into police custody," Kilgore said. "My goal is that all children be safe, and I thought that was the best thing to do."

    The decision to send Hackney home was made by a state trial commissioner who consulted with police, said both Johnson and Scott Furkin, general counsel for the Administrative Office of the Courts.

    Furkin said the commissioner appeared to make the right call because Hackney's parents were willing to take him home.

    "But anytime something like this happens, we want to review it and make sure proper protocol was followed," Furkin said.

    Wow. I wonder what triggered this tragedy. Common sense would tell me that this boy has been troubled for a while. I mean, even if you do drugs, you don't become homicidal, do you??
