Andrew Pollack lost his daughter, Meadow, on Valentine’s Day in Parkland, Fla., and he took issue with a video Wednesday in which David Hogg called the shooter (to whom Pollack will only refer as “181958”) a law-abiding citizen.

The shooter was trouble and everyone seemed to know it — but to keep him from racking up a criminal record, he was referred to the school district’s PROMISE Program — Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Interventions, Supports & Education — which if we recall correctly he didn’t even attend.

The program allows students who commit certain misdemeanors at school to bypass the justice system and instead attend an alternative school — thus keeping arrest statistics low and background checks clean.
