      No, this is what an entire generation of entitlement absentee parenting and video game baby sitters do to a society. All these kids have been tokd they are special from day one and been handed everything they have in life. Drug’s are drugs and they have negative effects, none as damaging as a society that half ass’s everything and only cares about themselves.

    Names please? Strangling a women as a teen… ya thats not gonna evolve to greater violence probably rape and possibly murder. Id feel safer having a face and name for the violent criminal that assaulted a women in her home. Hiding his identity based on his minor status is bullshit. Hes a dangerous criminal.

      Isn’t threatening to stab with a knife using a dangerous weapon?

    These kids did not learn this behavior in some vacuum. One can and should hold accountable, the parents of these kids, both criminally, and financially. Sadly, in Iowa, the parents are only liable for damages.

    And notice as I have, there were no charges of felony assault leveled against any of the suspects.

      Scary huh? They wont release a name or picture and are probably gonna give him probation so he has the chance to actually kill some poor women. Seems like they dont care about public safety. More people should be armed. Self defense is a birthright. This kid shoulda been shot to death.
