I agree that we need more information. But no matter the kids motivation, he still stabbed his father more than once. Unless he did it defending himself during an assault, then it's likely unjustified. If he did it just because he was pissed at his father, then what's to say he won't do something worse next time he's mad, like beating him with a baseball bat while he's sleeping.

If that were my son, he'd have to find somewhere else to live once the police release him (and they will). I love you, and I forgive you, but I'm not going to walk on eggshells and look over my shoulder the rest of my life. Sorry, but you crossed the line.

Either he'd been abused and couldn't take it anymore, or Dad said stop playing games and texting.

Burglary, assault with a deadly weapon, multiple offenses. I bet he gets a warning and a 10% reduction in pay for three months.

It IS kids having kids. She was making babies at 15, not even an ichinensei, and he a sannensei. Candle wax, aluminum foil, and onion skin = she was trying to feed herself. Mocheake is right. No respect for or understanding of human life.

There is some evidence to suggest that ancient Japanese discovered the Americas before any Europeans. Samples of pottery found in South America look strikingly similar to Jomon period pottery from old Japan.

You guys can thumbs down me from now until doomsday, what matters is the safety of the child, not the feelings of the mother. Where's the sympathy for the little one who trusts her life to the "responsible" adult?

Nothing ever happens to minors in Japan who commit such crimes. Even the girl who killed and dismembered her friend (after nearly beating her father to death with a bat) will be released in a few weeks. If I were his parents, I'd change the locks and leave his belongings in the street with a note apologizing for interfering in his life.
