Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald made headlines for her swift and severe punishment for the crimes, including charging Ethan Crumbley as an adult, and including a terrorism charge. She also took an unusual step in filing charges against Crumbley's parents, who bought the weapon used and ignored the school's concerns over their son's violent behavior.
Unsurprisingly, a number of Metro Times
stories about the incident and its fallout were among the top 10 read this week. Here's what else our readers were interested in:
