    THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MEN BEAT THEIR WOMEN AND DO IT IN FRONT OF THEIR CHILDREN. NOW THE CHILD HAS TO LIVE WITH THIS THE REST OF HIS LIFE AND WILL PROBABLY GO TO PRISON FOR A VERY LONG TIME. SO SORRY FOR ALL INVOLVED. THEY ALL NEED PRAYERS FROM EVERYONE…..

    If you know the people involved who was doing the beating? Who has stabbed others in the past? Aricle states “altercation” it does not state altercation between whom. Lets not point fingers since (we) were not on the location. This is not a situation the public should jump into & make assumptions or feel empowered by trying to place blame. Extreme anger is a very hard thing for alot of people to handle; especially angry teenagers.

    This is what happens when a person goes un punished for stabbing people. This is the second time this person has stabbed someone in the chest. The difference this time is his second victim didn’t survive. Very Very SAD
