A Florida teenager who stabbed a schoolmate to death will not face any criminal charges, a judge ruled this week in Naples, Fla.
Fifteen-year-old Jorge Saavedra was facing a second-degree murder charge in the death of Dylan Nuno, 16, after a judge ruled the boy's action against a bully amounted to self-defense, naplesnews.com reports.
(Collier County Circuit Judge Lauren) Brodie based her decision this week on the findings from a two-day December hearing, during which students who witnessed the events Jan. 24, 2011, testified that several teens announced the fight on the bus, and Saavedra got off several stops early in Golden Gate Estates. ...
In a nine-page document released Tuesday by the State Attorney's Office, Brodie stated that by getting off the bus several stops before the location where the fight was to happen, Saavedra "demonstrated that, with or without a knife, (he) had no desire to fight with Dylan Nuno."
According to testimony, Nuno, a junior, followed Saavedra, a freshman, off the bus and punched him in the back of the head. Saavedra tried to get away.
He then stabbed Dylan Nuno 12 times in the chest and abdomen. Two of the blows caused fatal wounds, including one that nicked his heart.
I think this is a very good subject (bullying) and that it isn't funny to pick on people. The Columbine High School Massacre was caused by bullying... And many other school shootings. The bully didn't deserve to die.. But I don't feel bad for him. If you're gonna pick on/harass somebody, don't expect anything good to come out of it. A lot of people pick on people they don't really know. Everybody has limits, and sometimes that limit gets reached very fast. It's like you're poking an alligator with a stick.. It will eventually bite back!
Please tell me what you guys think about this.. Murder is a big deal, do you think what he did was right? Or was it over the limit? Did you ever experience bullying, or witnessed it? Thanks.
