Your name should be "TURKEY ON DRUGS". Your statement "the kid shouldn't have had a knife", borders on moronic. I have carried a pocket knife since I was 6 years old and I am 68 now. I have never stabbed anyone. Boys my age carried knives to school everyday and we never had that first stabbing incident. When boys joined the Boy Scouts a knife was mandatory equipment. I'll admit that people of your intelligence probably shouldn't carry knives. It all goes back to how you were taught as a youngster. Oh, and by the way, when I was 9, my parents bought me a .22 rifle for Christmas and I have never shot anyone either.
You are the moron, When you were growing up the world was a lot different. I'm 53 and the world has changed very much since then as well. Face it, if everyone involved would have behaved themselves, the kid would still be here.

It was a pocket knife - I know lots of people that carry those - he was defending himself and probably saved his own life!

I have a pocket knife myself. I use it but not to defend myself.

The Walravens should go to prison for causing the situation that killed the boy and the slasher should be let go because he was probably drunk, a minor and should have been under the direction of the Walravens ... who dropped the ball. Besides, the 17 year old probably saved his own life by defending himself. The dead kid ... well, maybe he will be smarter in his next incarnation.

We still need to hear all the facts. No one is saying at this point who was beating the 17 y/o and how severe it was. We'll know a lot more when it goes before the grand jury with the witness testimony from 30 some witnesses.

Isn't 19 a bit old to be graduating from high school?
Is that really the point here? Doesnt matter how old he was, he DID graduate!
Still, not the point.
