Here's a tragic story with plenty of blame to go around. Two pre-teen boys were out at midnight (!), hiding in some bushes and firing bottle rockets at passing cars. Great prank, but it does have some possible drawbacks, like if the rocket goes into an open window. Anyway, one of the drivers didn't appreciate the prank at all, stopped his car, and he and his passenger went after the two boys. They caught one and beat the crap out of him. Then they started chasing the other one. The boy ran out into traffic, where he was hit by a car and killed. The two men are now in jail. The surviving boy was treated for his injuries and released to his parents. Plenty of blame to go around. I think the only person who shouldn't be blamed in this tragedy is the teenage girl who was driving the car that hit the kid, and she's gonna relive that night for a very long time.
