More and more I am very alarmed about what is going on in the minds of our youth. Check out the story below and take the poll at the bottom to let me know if the girls should be charged as adults.
WAUKESHA (WITI) — 12-year-old Morgan Geyser, and 12-year-old Anissa Weier were charged as adults on Monday, June 2nd — accused of stabbing another 12-year-old girl over the weekend. Apparently, all three of the girls in this case were friends.
The two 12-year-old girls are accused of plotting their friend’s murder for months — and attempting to kill her this weekend.
“Based on our investigation, it is believed that the suspects had planned to
kill the victim for several months. The Waukesha Police Department is deeply saddened that this 12-year-old girl had to suffer through this horrific crime,” said Waukesha Police Chief Russell Jack.
Each of the girls faces one count of attempted first degree intentional homicide as party to a crime — and each faces 60 years in prison.
The girls made their initial appearance in court on Monday, June 2nd.
“Very adult consequences of the actions alleged in this case,” a Waukesha County Court Commissioner said Monday.
The criminal complaint in the case says on Saturday, May 31st, a citizen called Waukesha police to report a stabbing — after locating a girl on the sidewalk in the area of Rivera Drive and Big Bend Road.
The complaint says the girl told the man: “Help me, I’ve been stabbed.”
The man called 911 and tried to apply pressure to her wounds — and stayed until the Fire Department arrived.
