Sad (and senseless)

Schoolgirls' fight ends in death, leaving haunting questions
It began with an incident that seemed relatively harmless, even timeless: Two little girls. An argument over a boy. An arrangement to meet after school. A pause, while a few friends gathered around and the girls put their hair up in buns. Then the fight. It lasted just a minute — two flurries of punches, a busted lip and separate paths home.

But six hours after Friday's fight in Long Beach, 10-year-old Joanna Ramos was dead.
