    granny asks "Wonder what goes on in the homes of these children?"

    Whatever ... hopefully it doesn't involve doughnuts.

    Well im sure the girl was not 100% innocent in all of this!

    I went to school with kids like this. The teachers tend to look the other way for certain students and the parents have no idea what is going on. You can't go around in life pushing people around, trying to bully them and take whatever you want all the time. This is a typical spoiled brat that needed her behind worn out a long time ago. I think the girl deserves to get stabbed. Maybe it will teach her a lesson about how to treat people.

    Adding to my previous post below, the girl should be in jail for hate crimes and assault if and only if the Stabber didn't pull the knife.

    I was a witness to what happened. It started in class when the Stabber bought a box of doughnuts, the Stabbee demanded one, Stabber said "No, they're for my family". Stabbee jumps up and starts using racial slurs against the Stabber for not giving the Stabbee a doughnut. The Stabber tells the TEACHER, teachers response "She'll get over it." [Teacher needs to be fired]. They head to lunch and as the Stabbee is infront, she pushes the Stabber, Stabber goes to pull a knife [wrong in his case] and says "leave me alone" showing the Stabbee the knife while the Stabber is on their knees, tells her to back up, Stabbee lunges at him, Stabbee gets it in the gut.

    I'm confused again, the person that was selling the doughnut (or not selling it really) stabbed the person that wanted it? Shouldn't it be the other way around? Who stabs someone for trying to buy something from them?

    I'm still looking around trying to find out why did the one student refuse to sell the donuts to the second student?

    To set the recored straight . . . the Stabber (Robert Wallace) refused to sell Krispy Kreme doughnuts to the Stabbee (Teonia Brinson) from which an arguement ensued which led to the unfortunate stabbing of Ms Brinson.
