What is a 16 year old boy from sacramento doing at a park at 1:45 am. Shouldn't he be home with his parents sleeping in his bed. Sounds like a kid that comes from a really bad home.

Contact Wolk(D) and Yamada(D) regarding this increasing social problem. They certainly aren't busy with the State's budget, now, are they!

Another knife attack! Folks we are seeing a growing crisis here! The introduction of a third-world tactic in America.

Again, for those who are a bit slow at the wheel, this is a cynical statement about 'criminals' and the weapons they choose! The weapons themselves aren't the problem:

If only we had strict anti-knife laws in effect at this time, this would NEVER have happened!

Like guns, register all knives! Have No Knife Zones. Consider a serial number for each and every knife sold in this Country.

Require a thumb print when purchasing a knife or the equipment used to sharpen them.

Ban the purchase of cordless, automatic, electric knives! Those are the most dangerous because of the slices-per-minute (SPM) they can cycle! They have no place in a "free" society!

Write your Democrat Legislative Representative (DLR) today! Demand senseless legislative action now!

Em... 16 and zero-dark-thirty in a public place!

Was this a business meeting between young budding gang members attempting to establish rules of operation or merely a dope deal gone "south"?

Was the suspect the same guy on an all chrome bike that has been stabbing people?

Or was this another gang conflict? A group from Sacramento at the park that late. I doubt it was for a barbeque.

This is a wonderful boy !... He was a few blocks from his mothers home and walking home from his girlfriends house.. Nothing neferious as people here are intimating !... Deal with it>>> sometimes people are just what it seems >>> innocent victims!
This boy is not in a gang. Never Been in trouble, and all of 120 lbs... He was a few blocks from his mothers home, to a teen I am sure he thought it was safe to walk that distance. He was also not alone.! jump on another victim . I surely hope that the nay-sayers here don't ever become a victim and then get victimized online all over again
!
Sincerely,! Auntie !

Pray for your safety and support.... Pray for this boy to heal fast.. Pray that something like this never happens to you.
An innocent child was victimized ( almost killed )
I pray the violence ends.
I pray that this child is not victimized again here on the net.
He is not in a gang! He was literally an innocent. He like most youth think that nothing would happen to them. I am sure he thought walking home a few blocks was safe for him. His parents are responsible, caring and maybe naieve in thinking it was a safe walk a few blocks also.

Please do not judge w/o knowing the facts.
I pray that this violence ends and that the nay-sayers never have to experience an encounter like this 1 in their lives.
This is a tragic event for our family. Kicking at people when they are down is cowardly and shows poor uncouth behavior.

Sincerely, bearly_tame_auntie !

Thanks for the funny commentary. Definitely understood the comparison of guns to knives. Our litigious society tends to forget about personal responsibility when we can easily blame someone else. Responsible people (and parents) wouldn't be hanging out in a park 1:30 in the morning. You don't need to find trouble that late at night, it tends to find you.

I hope he has a speedy recovery. But having a teen of my own, I never let him or his friends walk a few blocks home late at night. I always drive them, especially in that area of town where there have been so many problems.

He wasn't just "walking home from his girlfriend's house." There was a group of about six boys and girls hanging out by the bathrooms at Campbell park. This area is notorious for kids hanging out and doing things they shouldn't be doing late at night. They were also out after curfew. While he may be an innocent victim of the stabbing, it wouldn't have happened if he was at home where he belonged. Most bad things happen to kids when they're doing something they shouldn't be doing in the first place.

Yep I agree LOTS of teens hanging out at the park late at night and they are there drinking, drugging and vandalizing!

Why don't some of these plain clothes cops in cars drive by these parks after curfew? Break up whatever is going on. Find out where each one of them lives. Talk to their parents, if they have any. Put the pressure on the ones that are raising them (and doing a lousy job, by the way).

Walking to his mothers house at 1:45 am? Sorry Auntie, can't by the innocent BS...

Doesn't matter if he was just walking by or not.... That park and that neighborHOOD have become a cesspool of gang-bangers and drugs. He was either a participant or a victim. Either way it should tell us the same message.... that area is becoming a SLUM and needs to be cleaned up.

Many of these kids (and adults committing crimes in town) are probably on probation - allowed to remain in the community "under the supervision of the probation officer," after having already committed a crime
It's unfortunate that the probation dept (and community corrections in general) is underfunded; caseload numbers are high - intensive supervision or special enforcement details are rare.

First off I will say that people are very naive to think that ANY 16 yr old boy is completely inncocent. Especially one out at 1:00 in the morning. However I know his Father & step mother personally! They are good parents. Sometimes children make poor choices or use bad judgement. This in fact is such a time. I am not sure who the "bearly_tame_auntie" is but some of your "FACTS" were incorrect. The "boy" was not where is was supposed to be...He HAD been drinking earlier with some friends and met up with some girls that lived near the park.... they were swinging on the swings when the"boy" had to use the restroom...he left the group and went to the bathroom as he was leaving he was attaced and stabbed 8 times by with a phillips screwdriver...he walked back to his friends annoced he was stabbed and his parents and police were notified. He was taken to UDC with what appeared to be "superficial" stab wounds. However after CAT Scans it was found that he had puncture woulds to the bag around the heart and to his lung he ahd to be rushed to surgery where he has spent the last 2 days in ICU. Last night he was moved out of ICU and is doing remarkably well. Fact of the matter is this ..HE is and was NOT a gang member...He is and was NOT a drug dealer.. He was a 16 year old boy who made a poor choice in lying to his parents about where he was,drinking beer and meeting up with girls at a park at 1 in the morning. He fully acknowleges the fact that it is because of these choices that he is where he is. He is not a BAD kid he is a GREAT kid who made some poor choices and is paying the consequenses. He is a great kid & generally makes good choices & this has proven to be a valuable but costly lesson for him.
