“At approximately 12:50 pm, on Tuesday, September 5, 2017, members of the Metropolitan Police Department’s Second District responded to a school in the 2000 block of Wisconsin Avenue, Northwest, for the report of a stabbing.
Upon arrival, officers located a 13-year-old juvenile male victim who had been stabbed multiple times. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
The suspect, a 12-year-old juvenile female, has been identified. There was no arrest made at this time due to the suspect’s diplomatic status. Detectives will be consulting with the Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia as well as the US State Department regarding potential criminal charges.”

Jesus Christ, I think they are judging me. In their underwear! It’s not even particularly nice underwear, thank you very much. My underwear has whales on it. That’s cool underwear. But damn that look of disdain stings a bit.
