Diplomat’s daughter stabs classmate at prestigious D.C. school

I was unaware that Diplomatic Immunity extends to the children of diplomats. Apparently it does, as the 12 year old daughter of an unnamed diplomat repeatedly stabbed a fellow pupil at the prestigious British International School with a pair of scissors -and won’t be charged. 

From NBC Washington:

The 12-year-old daughter of a diplomat stabbed the 13-year-old boy twice in the shoulder with scissors in Georgetown at the British International School of Washington at 2001 Wisconsin Ave. NW just before 1 p.m., police said.

The victim was taken to Children’s National Medical Center. He was conscious and alert and is expected to be OK.

The girl was detained, but as the daughter of a diplomat, she will not be prosecuted, police said.

“The suspect has been identified, however, because of her diplomatic status, there’s going to be no arrest at this time,” MPD Inspector Mike Coligan said. “Any questions regarding the diplomatic status can be referred to the State Department.”

Bloody Brits exporting their blade-related violence to this country…

(anyone else savor the irony?)
