    Thumbs down Bad : Killed By Stray Round

    What is it with kids and firearms?

    Just an unbelieveably sad situation.

    Supposed to be no firearms on school property, period. What was a 16 year old doing with a firearm as well? Now they get in fights and start shooting each other. This stuff just makes me cringe, because of the anti sentiment it will generate.

    I can hear it now, if we'd have taken firearms away, this would never have happend!


    14-year-old W.Va. boy killed by stray bullet
    April 13, 2010 @ 04:00 PM

    2010/The Herald-Dispatch

    The Associated Press

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Charleston police have charged a 16-year-old boy with first-degree murder in connection with the death of another teenager who was hit by a stray bullet.

    Charleston Police Sgt. Eric Hodges says a bullet fired during a fight hit 14-year-old Damion Blaney in the back of the head Monday evening. Blaney died at a local hospital.

    Hodges says Blaney wasn’t involved in the fight. The altercation broke out among a group of people near Glenwood Elementary School around 7 p.m. Monday.

    The 16-year-old suspect hasn’t been identified. He also faces three unrelated counts of first-degree robbery.

    Kanawha County prosecutor Mark Plants says he will ask that the teen be tried as an adult on the murder charge.

    Three counts of first degree robbery, and a murder charge at 16. It's an awful shame that this type of thing has to happen, but how many things has this individual done that he was not caught for? I doubt that he will get a death penalty even if convicted, but I think he should get a very, very long time to think about what he has done.

    I pray for the victim and his family. I know how I would feel if it was one of my sons who was struck by a stray bullet.

    Maybe we need to start supplying Death Row Cells with about 10 feet of rope. An no chance for appeal.

    These kids have no hope and no discipline..... and no future!

    They live life like it's a video game, only there is no "do overs" or "re starts".

    I still think we need an island prison with no escape and just let them kill themselves all they want.

    Maybe we could use Staten Island. And put all the Politicians Offices there for safe keeping.

    Sadly, criminals continue to receive more lenience while good citizens lose more freedoms.

    This is why I carry.

    A good place for a prison would be Nunivak Island off the west coast of Alaska.

    UNFORTUNATELY...we dont have the death penalty here. There are many people clogging our prisons who need it desparately.

    "...near Glenwood Elementary School."

    Near does not mean 'on' or even 'about'.
    Possibly this school is in the heart of a community and is a primary/most well known point of reference as related to the news writer telling the story...Rather than using the physical address of exactly where the fight went down.

    Kids having guns and shooting them at folks on the streets during fights is a 40 yr. old practice....And yes sometimes these fights and shootings happen near schools as well as churches, daycares and police stations too.

    This was not a shooting reported to be 'on' school grounds nor during school hours.

    He wants to handle and shoot a gun like "a man", then he can take the punishment "a man" would receive.

    He's intending to show how tough he is, by becoming a murderer. He missed and hit someone else, apparently. Murder, nonetheless.

    It'll be misplaced, I'm sure. Any criminal can get a gun. Banning upstanding people from them won't stop that. If he didn't steal it from Uncle Bob, he could have acquired it from any junkie's contacts downtown.

    Still, howling it'll be. No doubt.

    Condolences for the families of the upstanding kids in the bunch.

    For the others, the parents of the murderer, shame and blame for not having sanitized and murder-proofing your spawn, 'cause see what he's gone and done now.
