You don't mess with a woman's windows! The mischievous 12-year-old boy should have known he'd get shot.
You heard right. After WAY too much harassment, and after the boy allegedly threw a brick through her window, 68-year-old Chicago woman Margaret Matthews
called the boy's parents shot the troublemaking boy in the arm.
As a result the woman is facing ZERO charges. The boy on the other hand, may spend a year in juvenile detention. This seems a bit twisted to us…then again, so does the entire story!
Apparently, the police thought that gunfire against a 12-year-old boy qualifies as acting in self-defense.
The boy's grandmother and neighbors are skeptical. They're claiming he wasn't the type of boy to vandalize property. Here's what one neighbor had to say about it:
"He wasn't the type of little boy to do that, to throw a brick in an old lady's window like that."
We're thinking he probably WAS harassing the woman, but we're also thinking that maybe she could have explored other avenues before shooting the pre-teenager in the arm.
Whose team are U on? Team 68-Year-Old Woman or Team 12-Year-Old Boy?
