So a news story caught my eye today. An 11 year old shot and killed a 16 year old in what the police are saying was an attempted break in. I have no details on the case besides what was reported through various media sources. The police say there was some evidence that the teen tried to break in a few times before. On the other hand, a neighbor claims that it wasn’t a home invasion and that two boys had argued before the shooting.
Beyond that I know nothing about the case. But seeing as this story has been covered by everybody so far, with the predictable politically polarized differing slants. Because of this, and the fact that it took place in St. Louis (with everything else that has happened there in the last year) it has all the makings of a summer blockbuster of a media circus.
