A 15 year old allegedly stabbed his father to death after being scolded for not doing his homework and playing too much on his smartphone. Police in the Ratchaburi’s Ban Pong district are investigating and have not yet pressed charges.

The teenager, a Mathayom 3 student, was playing on his smartphone when his father said he should be doing his homework instead, the grandmother told police. A knife, about a foot long, happened to be at the teenager’s side. He picked it up and stabbed his father, the grandmother says. Police found the father dead on the kitchen floor.

The grandmother says the boy has mental health problems.

      Thuckin’ ‘ell Toby, it’s a child. You don’t know the full story, no kid does that out of the blue without some background. Do you just believe everything that journo-trolls tell you? Don’t you have some critical thinking faculties? Some parents are utter konts.

    Minimum rate of criminal responsibility in Pakistan is 7.
    Check out Wikipedia.
    This CHILD killer was 15 years old. This child repaid his father by killing him who had worked for this piece of shit to grow up to 15 years old, and the child repaid him by killing him.
    Take a life lose their life no matter what age, gender, or unproven provocation or justification.
    No exceptions.
    I have lived in some violent societies, and learned kids believe their are untouchable, because they are kids. I believe in no special treatment for scumbag kids.
