12 Year Old Boy Allegedly Stαbs Nine Year Old on Playground

A 12 year old Michigan boy allegedly stαbbed a 9 year old on a playground then made a calm 9-1-1 call, say authorities.

“I just stαbbed someone. Come and get me. I want to die,” the composed 12 year year old reportedly told a 911 dispatcher.

The Detroit Free Press reports that the 9 year old ran home after being stαbbed in the back, where he collapsed.

The two boys were playing around at the playground when things turned viοlent.

According to witnesses, the older boy ran from house to house telling neighbors that he needed to call for help. He seemed “at the end of his rope” according to one witness.

The 9 year old victim, Michael Conner Verkerke,  was taken to the hospital but died as the result of multiple stαb wounds to the back.

Jamarion Lawhorn, named as the assailant by the Detroit Free Press, is reportedly being charged as an adult.

“This charging route was taken because if a juvenile is charged as a juvenile in juvenile court, the judge would have no option but to discharge at the age of 21,” Assistant Kent County Prosecutor Laura Clifton explained to the Free Press.

Lawhorn pleaded not guilty Tuesday afternoon.

Prosecutors confirmed the 12 year old is being held without bond and will be tried as an adult in the court’s Family Division.

“This charging route was taken because if a juvenile is charged as a juvenile in juvenile court, the judge would have no option but to discharge at the age of 21,” said prosecutor Laura Clifton.

She explained that having the 12 year old tried as an adult does mean that he will necessarily be sentenced as one.

“For example, a juvenile can have a juvenile disposition, the term used for a juvenile sentence, but also have an adult sentence that is delayed — basically held in abeyance,” Clifton said.

    I think to try him as an adult is so very very wrong.

    I agree. Putting a child in an adult prison is extremely wrong. He is obviously mentally unbalanced to do something like that and to call the police himself. Why wasn’t a psychiatric evaluation ordered for this child? Our system just want to lock up black boys before they even become men! Really sad.

    They need to lock his ass up until he turn 18. We need to stop making excuses for the individuals.

      You’re right, the punishment needs to fit the crime. You say lock him up until he’s 18. If he is punished as a juvenile, he’ll be locked up until he’s 21, so why the hell would they consider charging this troubled child as an adult for him to spend as much time as they decide he should. I say it’s because of the color of his skin.

    1st i’d like to state to “Anastasia’s” racist point of view: All black males does not equal Violent! some of the most heinous crimes in the world were committed by White Men & boys, but we don’t label them all Killers! and i don’t judge them all by the same pen stroke! you need to get more educated about real crime before you spout off like the idiot you are! Google statics on major crimes by Males and you will see it is Caucasian men who DOMINATE THIS FIELD! my sympathies and prayers go out to BOTH families, for the child who was murdered & the child who was so lost, he felt this was the only way to get help.

    i don’t believe he should be tried as an “ADULT” at 12 years old! while i’m HORRIFIED by this crime, because i am Mother 1st and lover of all children always! this boy/child needs some pyschologists to help him thru whatever he’s been going thru. he should do some time definately, but the mental help is paramount!

    Assnastatia you are a riot. U keep me laughing. Those comments u make keep me realizing crackers (KKK) are alive and well.

      and show their ignorance and stupidity and foolishness. Assnastatia must belong to the lowest of lowly KKK membership, because the upper clans have gotten much smarter by killing our pockets and by way of the pen(government) they can do more damage that way that that white monkey, but then again for all we know..Assnastatia could be black, like uncle ruckus from the boondocks

    Im surprised that imbred Anastasia knows how to read. She is on a topic that she can fully understand. Notice that she is never on any topics regarding politics! She obviously has the IQ of a potato. I guess that she does not realize how ignorant she looks always on our site. There must be something fascinatIng for her to keep coming back just to make dumb ass remarks. She is obviously craving our attention that her inbred family never gave her

    Analstasia, you must be lonely for your kind, always on the black website ,keep it up & you just might be located & killed, which you so righteously deserve, two kids has suffered from the hands of demonic whims & you concerned about calling someone, a kid, a monkey, karma is a mother, & it’s just around the corner from biting you in the ass, keep up the good work you do on this website & while you’re at it, take the time to pray, a life was taken & another will suffer, don’t add insult to injury, that’s if you’re human

    Another example of our fine injustice system. Anastasia, do you remember what your forefathers did to slaves??? Hmmm…you don’t know YOUR American History, do you??? I suggest you go back and read a few books, take some classes and do some research so you can learn something. You’ll also learn about how you evolved from the cave and eventually learned to walk up right , yet you still continue to live barbaric to this day. Who’s the monkey now????

    If God is taught in the home he will follow the kids to school. That is a parent responsibility to teach their children at home. Reading, writing and math along with other things in the arts should be taught at school. When don’t parents take on the real role of raising their children.

    Toy you are so right!! The Ana-@ss-hole-stasia “IT” deserves no recognition even on this blog, “IT” probably loves our beautiful African American culture, “IT” can’t get enough our intelligence,strength nor beauty, whatever”IT” is…ignore the “IT” Ana—-, whatever “IT” is…
    Great comment Toy!!!!

    The whole story is sad. This crime needs to be addressed but at the same time the 12 year old needs help mentally. Unfortunately both families will suffer, prayers for both families.

    @ Ana-stank-azz, I have to agree with Kimmie, you seem to only focus on tragedies like this. Taking every opportunity to jab at us Blacks. One does wonder if you are intelligent enough to understand or comment on political issues. Since you put yourself out there and if one was to believe your rants, you also must realize that any violent behavior exhibited by Blacks was learned and passed by our ancestors from years of violence towards them by your white ancestors during and after slavery. When violence is towards blacks by whites there is always a justifiable excuse but when violence towards whites is by blacks then it is expected behavior because based on most white folk thinking blacks are violent people. Ana-stank-azz, you do realize that your insistence to ALWAYS have a negative and/or disrespectful comment on a site most commonly used by and written for Blacks is a form of violence…. with words. Your attempt to use words to degrade and disrespect is just a ruse. Yes, you are a violent person. So I have one question for you…… are you Black?

    I read a post earlier that referred to you as Ana-as$-something and I thought the reader was very harsh and unfair, but now I see why they referred to you as such.

    I’m completely ignoring Anastasia’s comments because clearly she’s a TROLL on here seeking a ton of attention. Anywho…..to try him as an Adult when he’s clearly a JUVENILE is wrong on so many levels. Also, I noticed that they rarely release names and/or photos of underaged involved parties but here they are posted clear as day. Maybe it’s because the killer is a young Black male and the victim is a young white male and they want pity. Smh ya’ll will do anything to get Black people to take that L huh?
