Many kids just have no boundaries when it comes to their smartphones. They also have no idea about right and wrong apparently. On Friday, the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado placed a 12-year old girl at the Boulder Juvenile Center after she was charged with two counts of attempted first degree murder. Over a phone.
The police believe that the pre-teen had tried to poison her mom twice because she had taken her daughter’s iPhone away. The first attempt involved adding bleach into a smoothie that the mother was drinking. The mother noticed the bleach smell which anyone would, but figured it came from poor rinsing of the glass by her daughter. The next time the mother noticed a bleach smell again, this time coming out from a water carafe. That basically gave it away.
After the second poisoning attempt, the mother approached the daughter and the daughter admitted that she was trying to kill her because she had taken away her iPhone. The mother felt sick after the first attempt with the smoothie, but the feeling eventually passed. She didn’t drink any of the poisoned water that was offered to her on the second attempt. This is just crazy when your kid is so addicted to a phone that they try to murder you.
