The school official who initially called police said that no one was hurt, but soon called back and changed that story. The child’s name has yet to be released, but prayers go out to the child and family. We have to be more accessible to the children in difficult situations, so that this doesn’t happen.

I can’t lie,” he replied to Life & Times when asked about it. “But then when I started seeing the great responses I was like… ‘Fine!’” Funny thing is what his mom did! “My mom downloaded the album illegally by the way,” he revealed!
