The only proof in this case was not bullying, but the attack on the victim.

I hope this is a very strong lesson to everyone involved. This is not normal behavior on either child's part. I certainly don't condone violence but parents of bullies need to take a stand and nip it in the bud at a very young age.

Why wasn't this slug charged with attempted murder? If someone attacks you with an axe it should fall within attempted murder. 10 years in prison should be the minimum. Good riddance to him.

Bullying is a ridiculous media hype. Sure it happens. Sure it effects the developing mind of the bullied young ones. It is a truly terrible thing coming from one who was "bullied." But the simple fact is that this news story is the product of a serious event fallen into twisted hands.
This case's (deemed unprovoked by a judge) bullying aspect seems to be an attempt to give this extremely violent attack a somewhat just cause. Maybe to help us better understand why this happened. I mean, there has to be a really legitimate reason to try and murder someone, right?
As Mechgirl says. The only proof here of anything is that ax being swung to kill.

Sorry folks, but a "good kid" doesn't take an axe to another human being.

This kid has serious problems as do his parents for thinking he did nothing wrong.

The judge was right when he said he didn't believe the defense.

We will see how he acts over the next 2 years in JD. Monitor him closely!

Trent & VAtazdad, I couldn't have said it better myself. This case has been all about the bullying aspect, thanks to the media, when in fact it's about a violent act. Omar has serious problems, very serious. I hope for this community's sake help will be given to him.

I know people close to this case and this kid was bullied by the "victim" relentlessly. If the school and police do nothing to stop it, this is the result. Just look at the various school shootings. Bet that kid will think twice about picking on someone else.

Look....kids will bully or be bullied. It's a fact of life. Do you remember adolescence and then high school? But, NO ONE TAKES AN AXE TO SOMEONE'S FACE LIKE THAT. No matter how much the victim supposedly bullied the kid who tried to kill him. Whatever happened to resolving their issues in the schoolyard with fists? Get a clue!

Anyone that thinks this was a "good kid" has problems themselves.

A "good kid" doesn't attack another kid with an axe!

This kid needs serious "help" or if he ever gets out there will be a killing spree.

We will see after 2 years of incarceration and therapy how he is.

Planning on giving him lessons? Seems he is well on his way. This "good kid" attacked another kid with an axe.

Just your kind of people, right?

Based on your posts on other threads, you are a sick deranged idiot!

Sorry,guys I disagree...this poor kid has been harassed over and over again,and well even though he shouldnt of used an ax he was fed up,I was not bullied in high school,but I know plenty of kids who have and u know it mentally messes you up,especially if its everyday,non-stop..I guess he had enough and took action and well,the other kid got what he deserved,put yourself into his shoes,everyday being bullied,tormented probably by more then just one kid but probably his gang too,kids are cruel and he wasnt thinking clearly,he was mad and hurt and all sort of emotions was going thru his head,he snapped.

So,please stop judging him for this,enough was enough and the poor kids just snapped

So Scott, Omar's confession, first testimony, second testimony and evidence that was admitted to the court at this last hearing said he was not threatened at any time by the victim the night of the incident, nor did he know the victim prior to the incident other than by name. Bullying is a great defense but that's all it is in this case, a defense. No truth to it whatsoever; by the words of the defendant himself.

Nobody deserves to be attacked with an axe! Nobody. The victim did not "get what he deserved". He got attacked by another kid with an AXE.

This is the act of a very disturbed kid.

He set himself up to be judged, and he was. He was judged GUILTY, by the court and by the majority here.

He need serious "anger management" counseling.

You are right, it messes you up. I was bullied from 3rd grade until 12 grade. The bullying only stopped after I graduated from High school and went to college. The people were evil, mean and I despise them to this day. The worse was a girl name Erika Taylor Davis who put gum in my hair for fun.She was a pot head who smoked reefer before English class and math class. She was mean and vindictive and a real bee-otch in high school

Anyone that thinks the kid got what he deserved" is sick.

Nobody, and I mean nobody, even an idiot like you deserves to be attacked with an axe.

You and your buddy are both sick!

I would like to comment on both people involved in this case; omar was in a class of mine, and that redneck kid was in my study hall. Prior to these classes I had never met either of them, and because neither of them were in my social circles, I knew them only by what I observed. Omar was very quiet, I heard him talk only a few times. He often had a disheveled appearance and he spent much of the class asleep. However, he did not address teachers or students disrespectfully, and he did what was asked of him. The redneck kid (I don't remember his name) was quite the opposite; he was extremely vocal, annoyingly so. He was unbelievably arrogant, and talked badly about anyone he disliked no matter how ridiculous the reason. He was the kid that disobeyed the rules and then told the teacher f*** you when asked to be quiet. He was transferred out of my study hall after about a week. Omar made an awful mistake when he picked up an axe, and his actions are by no means justifiable. But it was no suprise to hear that some poor confused kid attacked a bully. Regardless of what happened that night, that kid was without question a bully and a disgrace to anyone around him. I apologize for speaking so harshly about someone, but I feel compelled to try and describe the character of these two kids after reading these comments.
