THEY ALSO REVEALED SURPRISING DETAILS ABOUT THE GUN THEIR SON STOLE. PATRICK AND JANICE METZGER WANT TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT ABOUT THEIR SON. SHOULD THIS COMMUNITY BE SCARED OF YOUR SON? ABSOLUTLEY NOT. THEIR 14-YEAR-OLD SON SERVED TIME IN JUVENILE DETENTION AFTER STEALING HIS FATHER’S TRUCK AND DRIVING TO SCHOOL WITH A LOADED GUN LAST YEAR. THE WHOLE INCIDENT ALSO GOT HIM EXPELLED FROM GULL LAKE MIDDLE SCHOOL BUT NOW HE WANTS BACK TO THE SCHOOL DISTRICT THIS TIME AS A HIGH SCHOOLER AND OTHER PARENTING OUTRAGED. BUT A STOLEN CAR, A STOLEN GUN, AND YOU ARE SAYING, THEY SHOULD KNOB SCARED? NO, HE HAS NEVER BEFORE TOUCHED ANSWER THING THAT DIDN’T BELONG TO HIM. HE HAS NEVER EVEN FIRED A GUN. THE ORIGINAL PLAN WAS, ACCORDING TO ONE OF THE STUDENTS THAT WAN INTERVIEWED, WAS TO KILL HIS PARENTS BEFORE HE WAS RUNNING AWAY. TO ME THAT SOUNDS DANGEROUS. I CAN’T IMAGINE SOMETHING MORE DANGEROUS THAN THAT. THE METZGER SAY THAT IS NOT TRUE BUT WOULDN’T GET TO DETAILS AS THEY ARE SEEKING LEGAL COUNCIL. THEY DID TELL ME THE GUN WAS AND TEAK BELONGED TOIANS IN’S FATHER AND DIDN’T EVEN WORK THEM THEY ALSO SAY, THEIR SON WAS ON HOUSE ARREST, WENT THROUGH COUNSELING AND READY TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL BUT SEVERAL PARENTS HAVE URGED THE SCHOOL BOARD NOT TO LET THAT HAPPEN. HE HAS ASKED US SEVERAL TIMES. WHAT ELSE CAN I DO FOR THIS JUST TO BE OVER WITH? HE IS WILLING TO DO WHATEVER HE HAS TO DO AND TACK HIS PUNISHMENT. THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE TAUGHT HIM. YOU DO THE CRIME. YOU DO THE TIME. NOW THE GULL LAKE COMMUNITY SCHOOL BOARD APPOINTED A COMMITTEE. IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS IT WILL RECOMMEND TOP THE BOARD WHERE THE SON SHOULD BE
