In recent news, as published by CBS news online article, a man from Los Angeles was staying at an apartment complex in Boise, Idaho that was also home to many refugees. After the man, Timmy Kinner, was asked to leave from the complex, no one suspected that he would come back the next day. The day that Kinner decided to come back was during a 3 year old girl's birthday party. Without no known cause as to why Kinner went to severely attack (stabbing children and adults) children ages 4 through 12 is unknown and adults who came to the children's aid. It is said it may be a hate crime due to nature of the location and the victims who recently became new members of the community those victims being people who have fled violence from Syria and, Iraq, and Ethiopia, according to CBS news details.
As stated by CBS news, William Bones, Boise police chief stated, "The crime scene, the faces of the parents struggling, the tears coming down their faces, the faces of the children in their hospital beds will be something that I carry with me for the rest of my life, as will every first responder that night."
It is such a sad reality that there is that much hate within a person to carry out such a violent crime, not only against adults that were there, but mainly towards the children.
