this was all a misunderstanding, Christopher was defending himself from a student who was trying to fight him, this student was making threats to Christopher, along with his friends. Christopher was caught by surprise on his way to school when this student attempted to jump him. Christopher was not going to stab him, they had once been good friends until relationships with girls got in the way. & my opinion is nobody should reveal his name, its emotionally draining & uncalled for.

I totally agree with you fedupinny.If he is old enough to threaten to harm someone than he is old enough to have a name reveal.

Not if he is to be charged as an adult I think. However under the circumstances if we can post the names and addresses of those who have VALID GUN PERMITS why shouldn't we post the name of a 16 year old who threatens another with a knife?

Agreed. I think the little punk needs a good butt-kicking; I was just curious. I see the update now.

Aren't the names of minors supposed to be withheld?
