Really interesting case. Could not begin to summarize well without a wall of text. but basically a kid shot another openly gay student after he was hit on my the student. the question is not about whether he did it (was done during class) but how much the shooter is too blame and how much the the school/victim/etc.
"Lawrence King, 15, left, was fatally wounded while seated in a classroom at E.O. Green Middle School in Oxnard in 2008. Brandon McInerney, right, is on trial for the killing. He was 14 at the time of the shooting."
"Emotions have run high since the very first day of Brandon McInerney's trial for murder. Perhaps that's because the killing of his gay middle-school classmate Lawrence King was as emotionally jarring as it was appalling. When McInerney, then 14 years old, shot 15-year-old King twice in the back of the head in a school computer lab three years ago, the incident jolted the coastal city of Oxnard, California, thrust two unstable households into the spotlight, and made King a rallying point for the gay community across the nation. The shooting exposed a multitude of sensitive subjects all at once: issues regarding gays, transgender people, bullying, white supremacy, child abuse and school violence came to the surface."
