I remember that one. The homeowner was an Asian immigrant who was not
familiar with the rite of kids dressing up for Halloween. The kid was
an adult sized teenager, probably masked, in strange clothing and
asking for trick and treat in a language this immigrant was not fluent
in. It was nighttime and in a poor neighborhood. Lots of bad karma
Yup. I was too hasty and had not read the references yet. The
reference source also makes more sense. Its almost unheard of for an
Asian homeowner to keep a gun for home defence. There are Asian gun
collectors for sure but they tend to be Chuppie types - educated,
affluent and not inclined to shoot intruders.
A 16 year old is not considered to be a "kid"
where we live, except by his parents. Most people
call them teenagers, kids are much younger.
It was a tragic and somewhat unexplainable
occurrence. Mostly a cultural and language
failure problem and a one in a million tragedy
with the host family at least partially responsible.
The Wikipedia article is more than a little
Give it up, George! A 16 yo is a kid anywhere in the new world. He was
murdered for 'looking foreign', and the murderer got away with it, plain and
simple. The Japanese aren't exactly noted for their stature, so he was much
smaller than an American kid his age would be.
You must be one of the people who think 6-year-olds who yell at their
mommies should be prosecuted as adults.
Get a life.
