This makes me sick.

When I was this age, my parents would have (rightly so) told me it was my own damn fault for throwing water balloons at girls. Whoever filed the charges is an idiot, and no doubt when the civil suit comes, the boy's parents will be idiots, too. The pussification of America continues...

The news story says it was a two-pound rock. I have a hard time believing an 8-year-old girl could throw a 2 pound rock. I hope that doesn't make me an irretrievable sexist, but I'm not sure how much distance I could put on a two-pound rock.

I see they updated that link since I posted it.

The family of the injured boy declined to press charges, but the DA chose to waste taxpayer money, anyhow? Great. Good luck in the next election, pal.

Hopefully this means the kid's family will spare us the civil trial as well...

Someone breaks your toe, you break his leg. He puts one of your men in the hospital, you put one of his in the morgue. He throws a water balloon, she throws a rock. That's the Chicago Way-- I see nothing wrong with it.
