Didn't realize on the first read that was the victim's family. That truly puzzles me. Its just that the overall tone of all the article seemed to be sympathetic to the attacker with the quotes it used that bugged me.
He did hit the kid at least twice from the report. Once in the knees, once on the head, don't know from the article what exactly came next, but to me that just seems like you're trying to beat someone to death.
I've never actually been hit with a baseball bat in the knees, but I have had my knees taken out by many other things from all angles: minivan, swift kick, etc. Really no matter where you hit the knees, if you apply sudden force, the person falls down. It just seems too calculated that the kid took one swing into the kid's knees, which should drop him to the ground, defeneless, and then another swing to his head. At the very least this kid needs to be put into a mental institution and let them deem whether or not he's fit for society, or a danger to others.
