Tennessee boy stabs brother, says jail’s better than 8-hour drive with him

Florida authorities say a 13-year-old Tennessee boy charged with stabbing his brother told investigators he’d rather go to jail than spend 8 hours in the car with his sibling.

Deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrested the boy Saturday and charged him with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Investigators say he stabbed his 15-year-old brother in the arm three times with a pocket knife.

As he was being questioned about the incident, he said he understood his rights and that he didn’t regret stabbing his brother, who had been teasing him. Deputies say the boy told them, “I’d rather be in jail than eight hours in the car with him.”

The boys live in Clarksville, Tennessee, northwest of Nashville.

Boys will be boys. Big bro should consider not teasing Lil bro. That would be my takeaway.

Only thing worse than a big brother is a little brother.

Yep. I'd bet the big brother will be more careful about that when his brother comes back from juvie!

My older brother used to push me around a lot; it all ended in a very big physical fight in which one of us used a pool cue and the other a pool ball (don't remember which) against the other. We were both hurt enough that we just stopped physically fighting. We've gotten along famously since then.

I pretty much clicked on this threat just to see if somehow Florida was involved.

Yup

This is the sort of action that should probably inspire a more thorough investigation. Abuse within families isn't always limited to punches in the car.

Pity me then. I have both.

Boys fight. Since the beginning of time and on through to the end of time. They'll fight over anything.

GENERALLY, once you have that one epic brawl and IF you're forced to continue to be in one another's proximity, you'll be great friends after that.

Several possibilities here:

1). The younger brother has mental issues

2). The older brother was truly sadistic and the younger brother had reached his breaking point

3). Normal brother stuff that got out of hand and if this was the case, the cops should not have been involved if at all possible

Maybe I'm an outlier or just behind the times, but typical 'boys' stuff' doesn't include edged or pointed weapons.

Or at least, shouldn't.




I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

It happened in Florida
They live in Tennessee
The likely drove through Alabama to get to Okaloosa County

Talk about a trifecta of dysfunction.

Wurm,

That's not how it starts! It goes like this:

Touch
Touch
"Stop touching me!"
Touch
Touch
"Stop touching me!
Poke
Poke
Poke
"Stop poking me."
Poke
Poke
"Stop poking me!"
Poke (by pokee)
Poke (by poker)
Poke (by pokee)
Poke (by poker)
"Mom! He's poking me!!!!!!!"
"Stop poking your brother!"
Poker holds finger right next to pookee and says, "I'm not touching you! I'm not touching you!"
"I'm not touching you!"
"I'm not touching you!"
"I'm not touching you!"
Poker gets in real close and doesn't touch the pokee
"Mom!!!!!!! He's breathing my air!!!!!!"

Trust me. I know this from personal experience as the younger brother and both the poker and the pokee. smiling smiley

Okay, so it’s not just me.

Provoked, grabbed knife that was laying within reach, takes a swipe, some kind of obscenity laden enough is enough tirade. Okay, smallish red flag, maybe medium.

Provoked, takes knife, stabs brother multiple times, says, ‘Jail? Better than having to be around him for a few hours.’. That’s sounding like we’re into Fun With Flags territory to me. ‘Boys will be boys’ was a few exits back seems like.

We've dismissed way too many early warning signs as "boys will be/hurt boys" over the years.

I'm sure they'll talk to him about that. "Hey, that's not cool!"
