That is sad to see these little kids out there fighting and stabbing. Yes, I agree he knew what he did and he needs to be taught a lesson from that. What if the 12yr old died?

It starts with absentee parents letting the kids run the streets messing up things for other hard working people who try to make the best of things keeping up their places, and then the absentee parents want to deny that their kids made the mess and the kids think they can do anything and start making more trouble. Had seen several bunches of kids playing in the streets and yelling at the cars, but the absentee parents want to sue if their rowdy kid gets hit.
