Will Justice Ever be Fair?

Recently, there has been a lot of tension due the school shooting that happened in Parkland, Florida.
In Fairfax County, a student is being charged as an adult for a gun threat to Fairfax High School. Ishmael O’Brien Lionel Harrison is suspected for threats to commit serious bodily harm to people on school property, as well as possessing child pornography. Ishmael Lionel, a senior at Fairfax High School, is very active in the school community playing both football and lacrosse.
Florida school shooter, Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people, including a staff member of Parkland High School. Ishmael didn’t kill anyone, he only made a threat to the school via Twitter. With that being said, controversy has arisen as Cruz was charged as a juvenile, but Ishmael is being charged as an adult. Ishmael was considered armed and dangerous by police. while Cruz was arrested peacefully.
This justice system makes me wonder, “Will things ever be fair?”.
