Stabbing suspect acquitted of murder

A teenager accused of killing another during a party on Nuns’ Island in 2016 was acquitted of murder Friday in youth court. The case was made that it was just hot-headed youthfulness, not drugs or gang activity. While fully admitting I don’t know the details I find this conclusion a little unsettling: most of us had our adolescent spats yet didn’t settle them with a “seul coup de couteau au thorax.”
