It is worth noting that the article doesn't have the direct quote for some reason, but only the father's paraphrasing of it. I wouldn't be surprised if he was skewing things a bit to make the quote look a little more favorable for his son.

I have no doubt that Justin was making a deliberate reference to school shootings, very likely inspired by Sandy Hook but possibly just by the concept in general.

If the father's paraphrase is representative of what Justin posted, I think the right response would be to bring him in, talk to him and do some quick investigation, just to be on the safe side. Charging him would be too much.

However, I would not be surprised if the actual quote from Justin's posting was worse than his father's paraphrasing, and that could definitely change things.
