  1. As a matter of law, someone aged 17 is a child. Also as a matter of law, throwing a large stone from above can be considered attempted murder. Therefore, a Greek person (presumably) has attempted to murder a child whose only crime was to seek refuge in Europe. I wouldn’t mind betting that the odds are in favour of this piece of human excrement being an activist in Σάπιες Αυγά.
