Winter Haven, FL (AP) - One 16-year-old is in custody and
another 16-year-old is hospitalized after a stabbing at a central
Florida high school.

Winter Haven Police Chief Gary Hester says there appeared to be
no motive for the stabbing before classes Monday in the Winter
Haven High School courtyard.

Hester says Luke Kendall was stabbed five times by Jade Mose.

Kendall was hospitalized in Lakeland in stable condition.

According to police, Mose was charged in April with possessing a
weapon on school property.

Mose was being held at a juvenile detention center on charges of
attempted second-degree murder, carrying a concealed weapon,
carrying a weapon on school property and violating probation.

Lt. Brad Coleman said police will ask for Mose to be charged as
an adult.

    I really don't think that outlawing knives would solve anything. If someone wants a knife, they're going to get one. What's to stop a kid from taking a knife from inside their homes and taking it to school? I don't think video games or tv are to blame for this, violence was around well before any of those things even existed. You didn't hear about it as much as you do now because we have more access to media then they did in the 1930's and even then, violence was a big problem. I believe that the parents should be blamed more than video games and TV. The kid was caught on campus with a weapon before and was already on probation. He had to get to school with the knife to begin with and being underage it's the parent's responsibility to PAY ATTENTION to what is going on in their child's life. Thankfully the victim is okay and I'm glad that they're treating this situation seriously. The child should have been expelled from the campus to begin with.

    Bob: Video games and Tv have NOTHING to do with why students are all of a sudden(in previous years) starting to carry guns to school and weapons. Believe me, I have watched violent tv shows and video games since I could remember( maybe 4 yrs or less) and I NEVER took a gun to school, or a weapon, and I surely never stabbed someone. The problem you ask, PARENTS! To many young woman giving birth not wanting to be parents but forced to deal with a child give no education, love or commitment to them. These poor children now a days are left to learn for themsevlves, fend for themselves and believe it or not, protect themselves. Children feel like they have no power and when they get picked on over and over agian, unless they have sufficient parents to talk to, resport to violence or whatever other means they can think of to keep from getting bullied. Wrong? OF COURSE IT IS! But until parents want to become parents again and spend time with kids, wont happen anytime soon.STOP BLAMING TV@!!!!

    We should do like England and outlaw all knives (outside the home) but then they would only do what they do there. Club each other to death! It would make more sense to find the causes of the violence and eliminate them (starting with TV and video games) but that would mean censorship. Guess freedom of expression is more important then a few lives.
