There's a 90% chance the stabber was black.

KENTWOOD, Mich.(AP) A 9-year-old boy who was repeatedly stabbed by a 12-year-old boy at a playground in western Michigan has died, police said Tuesday.

Michael Conner Verkerke ran home and collapsed on the porch around 6 p.m. Monday after he was stabbed at a mobile home park in Kentwood, near Grand Rapids, according to police. He died after being rushed to a hospital.

Witnesses told investigators that four children were playing when one of them pulled a knife and stabbed the boy. The motive in the attack was still being investigated, said Kentwood Police Chief Thomas Hillen.

Police said the older boy left the playground after the stabbing and called police from a nearby home to turn himself in.

Yeah, taking the guns away will prevent things like this from ever happening again.

In other words, more proof that guns are not the problem. Culture is a problem. Environment is a problem. Poverty is a problem. Fatherless children is a problem.
