Brussels : Teenager stabbed for a Mp3 player, dies at hospital.

Police appeal for witnesses to stabbing

Thurs 12/04/06 - A teenager was stabbed by two youths in the busy Brussels Central Railway Station late Wednesday afternoon. The young man was killed for not handing over his mp3 player.

The victim and a friend were waiting for another fiend's train to arrive at Brussels Central Rail Station.

Even during this Easter Holiday period, the ticket hall, that normally sees around 140,000 people passing through every day, was bustling at 4 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon.

Two other youths approached the couple in the ticket hall and attempted to take the victim's mp3 player.

One of the robbers produced a knife and stabbed the teenager when he resisted.

The 17-year-old was taken to Saint Peter's Hospital but died a few hours later from his wounds.

The Brussels Public Prosecutor's Office is currently investigating the case.




Good description of offenders

Police say that a good description of the two culprits has been given by the victim's friend and another witness.

So far there is no sign of the perpetrators, who are thought to be of North African origin, but police are hopeful that the incident was recorded on CCTV.




Isolated incident

The Brussels Judicial Authority has noticed an increase in the number of cases where youngsters are forced to hand over such popular accessories as mobile phones and mp3 players.

This is the first time that such bullying has resulted in such grave consequences.
According to the Belgian National Railways, the fatal stabbing in the Brussels Central Station is an isolated incident.

Rail spokesperson Leen Uytterhoeven explained the shock felt by those working at the station.

She stresses that despite the heavy volume of traffic passing through, Brussels Central is not an unsafe station.

Wolves are my soul, my everything !

Know your real ennemies : don't let you fool by the mainstream media : They are full time LIARS ! NEVER trust the government !

BNP Paribas, JP Morgan, Lagardere are criminals : WAKE UP !

They really should ban teenagers from carrying cell phones and ipods to school. How sad.

If one of Trump's racist domestic terrorist THUGS tries to stop you from voting, STAY in line, take their picture, call the police and call 1-866-OUR-VOTE. Spanish: 866-Ve-Y-Vota. Asian Languages: 866-API-Vote. Lawyers will be ready.

I think people need to start teaching their children that when they are threatened with violence, give the attacker whatever money/item they want. It's not worth dying for.

You know if mp3 players were cheaper where everyone could afford them then my opinion would change. My cousin bought her son an ipod video, he took it to school and someone tried to take it from him. Luckily he ran to the front office before they got it.

I remember kids killing each other for their tennis shoes twenty years ago. It's tragic, but these incidents get a lot of attention because they're sensational. I don't think it's rampant. I sure as hell hope not anyway. Whether you're the one doing the robbing or the one being robbed, toys and trinkets simply aren't worth a life. My heart goes out to the parents.

Or maybe they should ban teenagers from carrying knives?

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

And what about all the non school students (ie like me) who happen to have ipods? Should we ban them for taking them out of the house too? I catch the train to the city 2ce a week for a course I am doing, and I always use my Ipod...
