Today in Stabbings

posted by on March 20 at 11:46 AM

A 74-year-old Seattle guy threw a glass at his 77-year-old cousin and told him, “I am tired of you,” and in return the cousin “punched him at least once and stabbed him with a knife he was using to eat.” The 77-year-old: “I wanted to eat my dinner in peace.” A week later, the 74-year-old has died from those stab wounds.

Meanwhile, someone was just stabbed over near Madison and 11th. The suspect has “a beard and blue beanie cap” and a knife.

I saw someone who matched that description (or, more accurately, the further detailed description in the Times: being detained on Harvard right outside of QFC over an hour ago. I didn't get a good look as I was in a hurry and walking quickly, but it appeared to be a citizen's arrest or an undercover/off-duty cop 'cause there were no uniforms or obvious police vehicles in site -- a man had the guy pinned to the hood of a car and was wrestling handcuffs onto him. Haven't seen any news updates about the suspect being captured yet though, so I'm not completely sure.

Too bad he didn't have a gun, then his cousin would be ... DEAD.

if we didn't have so many guns, there'd be a lot more stabbings. with stabbings, if it doesn't hit an artery, you have a chance.

i don't see no "well-regulated" militias, anyway.

Obviously a pressing need for knife control. Anyone want to start a movement?

Well, DC must have one, cause now they can carry assault rifles ...

I say we restrict knives to people who know how to use them - women and men who can cook and the fishmongers that can cut bait.

Good thing I can make sushi.
