What professional journalists...

...apparently cannot ever do... you know... call things by their proper names...

incident, huh?
"Fifteen-year-old Toronto resident Klayton Wynter died Saturday evening at an area hospital after "AN INCIDENT" in the mall's parking lot."
So that's what we're callin' it these days... "an incident"?

'Cos what I'm seein' here is murder with a CAPITAL M. Some sociopath tore into this kid so extensively that he bled out and died. No "incident", no "misunderstanding"... just murder.

Why would you soft-pedal this story? This is, in fact, every parents worst nightmare come true. I know this. I am the father of a fifteen-year-old boy.

Don't try pretty this up, Tamara. Put down your thesaurus. Call this thing by it's proper name and perform a valuable public service.

We stop being horrified by murder... gawds help us all.


UPDATE: Teens killing teens
On Tuesday, homicide detectives announced that one suspect, 15, was charged with second-degree murder in the region's sixth murder of the year.

The suspect's name can't be released under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
