FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) — Florence police say a 9-year-old girl stabbed her grandmother after they argued about whether she could watch television.

Investigators said the girl stabbed her 64-year-old grandmother in the back with a kitchen knife as she read the newspaper around 2 a.m. Thursday. The woman called paramedics, while the girl called her mother.

Authorities say the grandmother was treated and released from the hospital, while the Department of Social Services placed the child in the custody of another relative.

The girl will be charged in Family Court. Her name was not released because of her age.

How about filling in the source attribution when posting articles?

It's not the offending remote though, just a file photo.

around 2 a.m. Thursday

At my house, we often have violent arguments about reading the newspaper vs. watching television at 2 a.m.

Habits of the leftists....no idea of Right and Wrong, good and evil—nor any idea how to transmit Virtue to their offspring. The type of joy that leftist “values” always spawn—trips to the emergency room.

I'm often awake at 2AM, but reading a book. Sometimes my husband is watching TV. No conflict. :)

Something is very wrong with some children today. The thought of violently attacking a parent or grandparent never entered my mind as a child. On the other hand, families are often quite different these days as well.

I think that remote needs to have a bayonet photoshopped to it like this Glock-N-Gut.

Maybe Grandmother was up reading to keep herself awake because hellion granddaughter wouldn’t go to bed and she needed to ensure the kid didn’t start watching TV.

Good old spankings used to work pretty well. I suppose gran would be in jail if she spanked, best to be stabbed by the undisciplined brat. /s

“But Granny, I just want to watch Barney! You know Barney! ‘I love you. You love me. I stab you in the back by the tv’. Too bad Mom wasn’t here. I’d shank her, too.”
