Last week we talked about the 15-year-old girl who stabbed two freshmen girls at Snohomish High School.
An unnamed 15-year-old decided she wanted to go to school last week, armed with two knives including an 8 inch butcher knife with the intention of stabbing someone who was “at the wrong place at the wrong time”.
Luckily the 14-year victim, who was in critical condition after being stabbed 20 times, is said to be ok.
Now I’ve read a lot of news stories that have come out saying that the 15-year-old has a history of mental illness. According to one report, she has been suspended from school before after she reportedly became "obsessed" with two other girls, refusing to "let them have other friends," and threatening to kill the boyfriend of one.
Does it take an outsider to say what really a big issue here is?
I’ve lived here for 12 years and I’ve lived in different areas of the country and I know the weather here has an adverse affect on the people. We have more suicide per capita, more use of heroin and meth, and more use of prescription drugs for depression here.
So when are we going to realize that as soon as a child experiences or shows signs of dangerous behavior, we have to keep them monitored? Seriously, how does someone let a girl like this loose in the school?
I hope that the parents of the two stabbing victims sue the government so that our stupid governor can start implanting programs to make sure things like this never happen again at a place we have to send our kids to.
We really need to come to grips with the fact that people in Western Washington should be in therapy and the only people who argue with me on this are people who self medicate and/or are out of their minds. People just don’t want to believe that they should be talking to someone when studies have shown that this area messes with them due to the lack of sun.
This 15-year-old girl should get a minimum of 20 years in an institution where she gets therapeutic help.
I’m tired of this; some poor parents have to deal with this horrific situation just because we don’t want to face the facts that this weather makes people crazy.
How many more kids have to get stabbed because people here are too proud to face the facts?
