Mich. boy, 12, fatally stabs playmate, 9, at neighborhood park: police

A 12-year-old inexplicably stabbed his 9-year-old playmate on a Michigan playground Monday before the fatally wounded boy ran home and collapsed on his front porch, later dying at a local hospital, police said.

The older boy appeared calm after the slashing, stunned neighbors said, asking one man if he could use his cellphone.

“I gave him my phone, and I heard him tell the 911 operator, ‘I just stabbed someone. Come and get me. I want to die.’ It was just a sad situation,” Glenn Stacey told the Detroit Free Press.
 
 
Four kids were playing at the Pinebrook Village mobile home park in a Grand Rapids, Mich. suburb when Jamarion Lawhorn, who has been charged with murder as an adult, pulled out a knife and allegedly stabbed Michael (Conner) Verkerke several times in the back.

Conner ran home screaming before collapsing. The distraught boy’s mother waited by her dying child’s side as medics responded to the Kentwood neighborhood.

“She was screaming, ‘Where is the ambulance?’ while her boy was laying on the porch bleeding,” neighbor Barb Poelman, who saw the children outside, told the Free Press. “The kids, I thought they were just playing.”

As police pulled into the neighborhood to help the dying boy, Jamarion yelled out, “Hello. I’m right here. You’re going the wrong way,” Stacy told the newspaper.

“The only time he raised his voice was when the police came,” he said.

Cops still don’t have a motive in the brutal attack.

Friends were planning a vigil for Wednesday evening in honor of the slain boy.

Jamarion pleaded not guilty at a family court appearance Tuesday and is held without bond.

The 12-year-old is nearly the youngest person ever charged in Michigan with first-degree murder. In 1997, an 11-year-old was charged and later convicted of shooting an 18-year-old. Nathaniel Abraham was held in juvenile detention until the day before his 21st birthday in 2007, the Free Press reported.

I live within a couple miles of where this took place.  To better understand this, I wonder why J$ss$ J$cks$n and Al Sharptongue aren't threatening riots over the fact that the cracker was killed by a black kid.  The fact the perp was black was withheld by the media initially.

His mama named him Jamarion so we wouldn't have to go to google images to see what his race is.

Those goofy names hardly ever lie. He could be Obama's son and Holder's nephew.

    olice say that Jamarion's attack on Conner was unprovoked and inexplicable. He didn't know Conner before the attack and had joined the 9-year-old and two friends on the playground.

    Suddenly, he pulled a knife out of the sand and stabbed Conner multiple times in the back, authorities say. Police aren't saying where Jamarion got the weapon.

    SNIP

    Witness Glen Stacy told the Press he was doing yard work when Jamarion approached him and asked to borrow his cell phone. Mr Stacy said he assumed the child was calling him mother. Instead the 12-year-old called cops and admitted to a brutal crime.

    Mr Stacy says the boy told police: 'I want to die. I don’t want to be on this earth anymore. Please pick me up.'

    He says Jamarion told him that he lashed out because he had 'taken many pills' and nobody loved him.

    The 12-year-old was eerily calm and patiently waited for police, Mr Stacy told the Press.

    He only became animated when police finally arrived - and didn't immediately arrest him. Mr Stacy said the first emergency personnel went to the playground to help the victim. This upset the boy.

    'Hello. I’m right here. You’re going the wrong way,' Jamarion shouted as officers arrived.

    When police did finally come for him, he walked toward the cops with his hands out in front of him - showing he wanted to be handcuffed.
