Another case where belief has driven someone to do something terrible.
MCALLEN, Texas — A Texas teenager charged in the stabbing of his 14-year-old friend said a Ouija board told him to carry out the attack, police said on Friday.
The 15-year-old boy has been charged with attempted murder after stabbing his friend with a 4-inch knife on Feb. 29 in a wooded area behind a high school in Weslaco, a small town along the U.S.-Mexico border at the southern tip of Texas.
The victim was treated in intensive care for three days for a severe laceration to his intestine, Weslaco police spokesman J.P. Rodriguez said.
The alleged assailant, whose name was not made public, has no history of mental problems or criminal behavior, Rodriguez said.
“I’m not making excuses for the kid, but I think sometimes it’s harder for them to separate reality from fiction,” the police spokesman said. “This is kind of bizarre.”
(a) Ouija Board’s cannot speak. They’re inanimate objects.
(b) There is nothing special about Ouija Boards. It’s friggen cardboard with a graphic overlay and a triangle. They are manufactured. On a production line. No rituals or incantations are performed over them before being shipped out; Parker Brothers, the same company who brought you Trivial Pursuit, produces these boards. I promise they aren’t telling you to stab people.
(c) Parents need to start parenting. Plain and simple. Then this sort of thing wouldn’t happen.
