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.
... The birth of TV was a magical event foreshadowing its satanic significance. The first commercial broadcast was aired on Walpurgisnacht, April 30th, 1939, at the New York World's Fair. Since then, TV's infiltration has been so gradual, so complete that no one even noticed. People don't need to go to church any more; they get their morality plays on television.
LaVey compares satellite dishes and antennas to church-top crosses and notes that TV has become, in effect, the major religion of the masses, even calling the television set the Satanic family altar.
I know we all do silly things as a kid, but this is far over the top. I've thrown my fair share of temper tantrums as a child, but this is outrageous. Do you think she should be tried for criminal charges, or receive help of some kind? Or do you think the story runs deeper than this? Maybe something else went on and the Grandmother is covering it up with this story?

Anecdotes about the effectiveness of "ass tannings" received in ones youth and its implementation the solution for any troubled youth we hear about on ATS. Color me surprised. That's never been said before.
Isn't this the same crowd that talks about being able to raise their own kid any way they want? Forget that though, we have the solution for all the troubled youth out there, so parents listen up.
