A twelve year old kid stabbed a senior citizen, hitting an artery and thus killing the man.
It looks like the man was an intruder who was assaulting/had assaulted the kids mother, when he (the kid) took up a knife to fight him off.
Not sure how this fits into my recent post on fighting back, my writings on self defence or concerning the dangers of knifes ...
Right now I'm feeling pretty sick for the kid ... adults shouldn't have to go through crap like that, let alone a twelve year old boy.
There's no charges filed at the moment, I hope it stays that way, they'll have enough trouble to deal with I suppose.
