Five people were stabbed to death and one was injured in an attack in Brooklyn on Saturday night, according to media reports.

Three of the victims, who included children, were found dead at the scene in the Sunset Park neighborhood, the New York Daily News reported. Two others died at a hospital, where another was being treated, according to the report.

The Daily News, citing a police source, reported that the attacker was related to several of the victims and was found at the scene. 

Currently no more than that.

If I may be allowed a moment of crudity and crassness:  this exemplifies perfectly why gun control is nonsense and does little or nothing to stop violence.

Came across an interesting fact the other day.

The Wild West was legendary for it's lawlessness. You carried a gun and prayed you could outdraw the baddie.

Deadwood is pretty famous for it's gunfights - in it's worst year there were a total of 5 shootings.

Heinlein said it best - an armed society is a polite society.

It's reported sen. Schumer is introducing legislation banning assault cleavers.

I saw that and wondered.  Is it an oriental neighborhood?

Might have been called in to translate.

He probably was called upon to translate, the perp being an illegal immigrant who hadn't bothered to learn English, and all.

It is unusual that the article described the race of the perp. Had this been done by a Black person, they would have at least delayed saying anything about race. Had this been done by a Muslim, not only would we not know his race, but they wouldn't even report his name.


What this tells me, is that apparently Asians are not in the 'protected class' category.

This Sunset Park neighborhood is where I used to hang out when I was a young teen. I bowled at a center near The 66th precinct police station and my girlfriend lived down the block. My buddy's dad used to joke about how bowling was a great sport. He said it took kids off the streets and put 'em in the alleys.

I loved to bowl.  Was in our company league for years.

A lot of great memories there, hanging out on Friday nights in the parking lot of that bowling alley or cruising the avenue in my friend's orange VW bug detailed with sunflowers and rainbows, music blaring on the radio.
