Rock-throwing girl not going to jail.

"...Fresno's mayor and police chief maintain that Maribel's case was handled appropriately, and that assault with a deadly weapon is the proper charge for an act that might have had fatal consequences."

Guys, she's 11 years old. Who thinks that what they did at 11 years old was worthy of being charged in criminal court on felony charges? Dude, kids do lots of things that are dangerous - throwing things at each other, hitting each other - it's a thing most kids do, not just the budding sociopaths.

It's fucking ridiculous. Chastise the girl for throwing a big rock, and chastise the boys for being mean jerks. AUGH.
