Mr. Hackett, may I have a word?
Can't it wait? I'm rather in the middle of something.
It's actually about this.
Please. It will only take a moment.
Officer, may I call you back?
Yes. I will take care.
We're very close to a solution here.
Unless you've got something compelling to add--
Did anyone actually witness this happening?
Can anyone besides Connor say for certain that Mike was at fault?
The school has a zero tolerance policy toward violence.
Attacking another person or their property... Allegedly.
I'm trying to see that
he doesn't get charges pressed against him.
In exchange, there's gonna have to be some kind of punishment.
The other family won't compromise.
I don't want the boy to suffer unduly.
It's a good thing his medical history hasn't come up.
I'd hate to see Mike labeled as mentally unstable
and a vandal.
Well, you don't think that's pertinent information to consider?
Maybe... if you hadn't asked his sister.
I can only imagine the can of worms that-- that would open up
if the parent found out.
