Girl, 13, accused of stabbing peer for bag of chips

FRESNO, CA -- A California middle-school student in Armona has been charged in the stabbing of another student..

A 13-year-old girl from Armona, located in the South Valley, has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

The Kings County District Attorney's Office says she also faces another charge for using a knife. Kings County Sheriff's deputies say the girl stabbed a 13-year-old boy after he stole a bag of chips from her lunch.

She claims she only meant to "poke" him and was joking around.

The girl is expected to be arraigned on the charges Monday morning in Kings County Juvenile Hall.

Don't steal. Lesson learned.

Or she may have inadvertently awoken a future sex rapist murderer. Could go either way.

Thats true, but you hear of stupidity like this more often involving Americans...

There might be some factors contributing to that:

- it's a big country
- it's not like you read chinese newspapers or indian ones for example. Most people on this forum are anglo-saxon oriented. Everyone understands English, so English news will get broader attention
- sensationalism, I wouldn't be suprised if in a lot of countries this wouldn't get reported

yup it might happen anywhere.


Very true, but more than often it happens in America. That is why in the first few comments there was some initial shock as people thought it happened outside of 'merica.

Yes, it's a big country. The bigger country - the more stupidity inside. Take Russia for example ;)

I feel sorry for the parents, the girl does something extremely stupid and it is the parents that have to foot the bill for lawyers, fines, and so on even though none of this would mean anything to the child to deter her from this behavior. Parents can do everything they can to teach their child right from wrong but once their kid goes to school, the child's actions our outside of their hands but they cop whatever consequences are heading their way.

Honestly, not the least bit surprised about the "attack" or the reason behind it either. Children, even at that age, fighting (or "poking") eachother for the most pointless of things are hardly that uncommon.

The whole "only meant to poke" thing isn't all that far fetched either... Well it isn't after just reading this at least, with more details like say the extent of the stab wound that might change.

What baffles me the most is that this escalates to actual charges.

No, we just air out our dirty laundry more than other places.
