Teen Boy Dies After 'Shocking' School Stabbing 'Police have begun a murder investigation after a 16-year-old boy was fatally stabbed at a secondary school. The victim, named by Sky sources as Bailey Gwynne, was attacked in a "shocking incident" at Cults Academy in Aberdeen at lunchtime. He was taken by ambulance to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary suffering serious injuries but he died a short time later in hospital. Officers are questioning a boy, also aged 16, who they detained following the stabbing within the school building.' (News.Sky.com, 28th October 2015.) May Bailey Gwynne rest in peace, may his family be consoled and may his murderer know justice. These thankfully yet rare horrors are what we should expect as children are allowed to pass through ten-plus years of education believing that they are impervious to authority. Schools and teachers should be provided with greater disciplinary and control powers.
