Posted in: 14-year-old who stabbed schoolmate held grudge against victim: police See in context

I do not condone the actions of the suspect at all. But, when I first saw the news break my first thought was a case of the bullied taking revenge on the bully.

My guess, again - just a guess - Yuzuki Ito was a bully to beat, tormented, belittled the suspect to a breaking point (Anyone remember Michael Douglas in "Falling Down"?).

As an American, I feel stabbing like this is a "crime of passion". The suspect just broke and had enough. RIP: Yuzuki Ito.
