Fearless Brooklyn boy, 11, stabs mom's abusive boyfriend to fend off attack   - NY Daily News

DOMESTIC ABUSE IMPACTS US ALL!!  Courageous and fed up! Terrance Allen, an 11 year old fourth-grader said he, "had enough", when he decided to run and grab a kitchen knife to stop a violent assault on his mother and cousin by his mother's live-in boyfriend.  Terrance said he was afraid and knew something really bad was going to happen.  Terrance stabbed the assailant in the back while he was choking his cousin who had intervened to stop him from choking his mother.

This is what the Daily News reports, "A fearless 11-year-old Brooklyn hero wielding a kitchen knife saved the lives of his mother and a cousin when his mom’s live-in boyfriend snapped and started choking both women in their Bushwick apartment."

Domestic abuse impacts us all in so many ways! Had this boy been older, he may have been charged with an assault and that assault classified as something other than attributed to domestic violence.
