They called the teen odd, hyper, a loner. They said he talked crazy and worshipped the devil. Some say they even heard him threaten to shoot up the school...and then he did. Why wasn't more done to get help for Asa Coon before he killed himself this week? The teen wounded four others at a Cleveland school. What kind of safety net do we have...or need...for teens like him? Saving troubled teens before it's too late...Friday at nine, with Regina Brett on The Sound of Ideas.

This is one of the most important question faced by the society with troubled teens, In my view it would be more helpful to find out any kind of new behavior in teens needs to be followed up to its remedy treatment and then we can restrict this new kind of behavior not to a addiction or further dependencies.
