That’s why I voted #2, not listening to that teacher who could see the signs was a grave mistake.

Teachers are mandatory reporters when they believe a child is abused. They should also be mandatory reporters when they suspect violence might happen.  This child was clearly disturbed.  Even in his mug shot, he looked deranged.  He wrote a note indicating he was going to commit violence and couldn’t fight it off.  How much clearer a threat do they need?

From what I understand the teacher did report it to his superiors but either was not believed or thought action would be taken and none was, either way they must be held accountable as well.

The school dropped the ball and the parents are taking the full hit. All are somewhat to blame.

I believe both the school and the parents are both to blame.

Parents knew the boy was problematic but got him a gun anyway. 

Teachers knew the night before but never contacted the police. 

But one question I still have about this is, why did the DA NOT coordinate with the sheriff's office to pick up the parents BEFORE the public announcement of charges?

It has been handled badly all along.  I agree. Why were the parents allowed to flee? Unless their attorney got a hint of the charges and told them. It’s possible it happened so fast they didn’t have everything they needed yet for a warrant.

I personally think they wanted to politicize it as quickly as possible and thus aired it on the news as soon as possible.

Yes it’s possible the parents learned about it on the news. They didn't get far. They didn’t have enough money to escape and hide indefinitely. They were in their own car with license plates the public knew and were looking out for.

Well, what ever happened, they are starting an independent investigation but the AG said her office could conduct the investigation which wouldn't really be independent:

Michigan superintendent announces independent investigation of actions leading up to Oxford High shooting

The Michigan Attorney General said her office could conduct the investigation

An independent investigation has been launched into the events leading up to the school shooting at Oxford High School that left four students dead and seven others injured.
 
The Oxford Community Schools Superintendent Tim Thorne made the announcement on Saturday and said that after the Oakland County Prosecutor's press conference, many parents had questions about the school's "version of events" that led up to the shooting.
 
He said the independent investigation would help understand all interactions that Ethan Crumbley had with students and staff members at the school. 
 
The Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said that her office could conduct the investigation.

It depends on who is running it, if there are any inherent biases and if they want the truth. We have to presume they want to know everything.
