Earlier this week, police stopped the plans of two South Pasadena High School students who were planning to carry out a school massacre. The two hadn't purchased any weapons, or hurt anyone, but when arrested, police say, the two admitted to planning to kill three staff members and as well as students.

The District Attorney is expected to file charges Wednesday, although it's not clear if they'll be charged as adults or minors.

Jojo Liu is the co-director of the Juvenile Justice Clinic at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and joined Take Two to discuss some of the charges that might be brought against the two minors.
